It's with great honor and irrepressible excitement that we present A Carrier of Fire's third book for sale today.  The Broken Paragon is a collection of two dozen academic essays on video games, and while mature in nature, they're very easy to read and far from being too technical or jargony for any gamer or non-gamer to enjoy.  A few of the 24 topics discussed include adapting Pulitzer-winning books to games; innovations in art, sound, tech and environment designs; surprising story themes in award-winning titles; and breaking ground in choice-based gameplay.

The Broken Paragon is available for $11.99 plus shipping and handling from Amazon by clicking here, and a full list of the essays contained in it is available at the very bottom of our Projects page.  Get in on the games studies discussion while this new art form is just reaching some of its crowning achievements in storytelling and technical innovations.  Thank you.

A Carrier of Fire will be making several appearances at conventions in Virginia throughout the spring.  So far, we're confirmed at four conventions in the next three months.  Here's the schedule!

VA Comicon in Richmond (Feb. 9)
MystiCon in Roanoke (Feb. 21-23)
MadiCon in Harrisonburg (March 14-16)
Tidewater Comicon in Virginia Beach (April 12) 

jonny will be a panelist at MystiCon as well as hosting a workshop about small press and self-publishing, doing a reading from A Carrier of Fire's first four productions and sitting in for an hour-long selling/signing engagement.  It'll be a busy weekend with seven events in 48 hours, but it'll be worth it!  At the other conventions, we have tables booked to do giveaways, meet new fans and sell some books.  Stay tuned as these cons develop and we add more info!

Finally, we're working overtime to get The Broken Paragon finished and to the printers as soon as we can.  We'd love to have it in time for MystiCon, but it looks more likely it'll be hot off the presses the following month at MadiCon instead.  If anything changes, you'll hear it first from us!
