I have a non-fiction piece out today in The Kobold Guide to Magic. It's called "A Life Less Ordinary: The Environment, Magic Systems, and Non-Humans" and it's about world-building for non-human species with magic.
Here's the description of the anthology: The Kobold Guide to Magic takes you behind the scenes to learn the secrets of designing and writing about magic from 20 top fantasy authors and game designers. Find out how to create more compelling, more interesting, and more playable magic at your table or in your stories—with the word from some of the most talented creators working today.
It's available as a PDF and as a paperback: Kobold Press, Amazon, Paizo, DriveThruRPG
I had the first weekend in a while where I spent the whole time at home. I worked on the last Raksura novella, watched Miss Marple and Archer, and that was about it. We also got a good amount of rain on Saturday, which was a relief. I'm hoping for no more dead trees, at least for this year. I still need to figure out what to do about the three dead trees we already have.
ETA: Oh, and I wanted to mention for people in town, there are still a few copies of Emilie and the Sky World at the local Barnes and Noble (not the one on campus).
