Welcome to the website of Chris A. Jackson, award-winning author of fantasy and science fiction. I love to read and I love to write, and I’ll tell you all about it here. Make yourself comfortable and have a look around. This website is constantly evolving, so check back often.
Thanks to all those who joined me for my Pathfinder Tales online chat the night of June 6. We chatted until the wee hours, even though I had to be up at 5am, and I met some cool folks, such as the person who invented the Pathfinder lunar naga. (Read Pirate’s Honor to understand why I’m grateful!)
New Goodreads book giveaway! In honor of the upcoming release (July?) of Weapon of Blood, I’m giving away two signed copies of Weapon of Flesh, the award-winning first novel of the trilogy. The giveaway runs through August 10th.
Great news! Pirate’s Honor is averaging 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com reviews. You can buy the paperback or ebooks (PDF/ePub) at Paizo.com, and paperbacks at leading booksellers. Want a taste before you buy? Check out the first chapter, or read the free web fic prequel, a short story in four chapters, Stargazer. These free reads come with professional illustrations of several of the main characters—they rock! If you enjoy reading Pirate’s Honor, please post a review on your favorite review site. Reviews really help! I’ll have signed copies of the book at all the conventions I attend this year.
During our summer travels, in addition to attending conventions, we’ll also be stopping to speak with groups about writing, gaming, writing in a gaming world, you name it, and giving away books. Keep an eye on my Events page for dates and locations.
More excitement in the Jaxbooks boathold. Scimitar War, the fourth and final Scimitar Seas novel, is a finalist for Fantasy in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards 2012. The first three books of the series each won a gold medal in this contest, and we hope that Scimitar War will join them in that achievement. We should find out in the next couple of months. Keep your fingers crossed!
Writing of Weapon of Blood—the sequel to Weapon of Flesh—is well underway. We hope to release it this summer. Check out my Blog for progress reports.
