Recent Review for Knightfall
Awesome book! Makes you feel like you’re friends with a vampire, a so-human vampire. Can’t wait for the next one! I TOTALLY recommend these books to any sci-fi or fantasy lover…or anyone else who loves a good read. You’ll want to finish it all in one gulp, and then re-read it a lot. I find something new every time I re-read one of Mr. Whited’s books.
September is coming to an end, as is the end of the summer book tour for Garon. It was a lot of fun setting up the tour for Garon, taking him to many different stops and speaking with store managers and convention folk who were all very accommodating.
Garon loves doing conventions. His main focus right now is writing but his team of publicity demons is currently looking to the future. More about that later. The Chronicle will always come out towards the end or start of a month unless we just cannot wait to tell you something new and big.
So, we ask you, before you continue reading this edition of the Chronicle, take a few moments and share Nightlord: Sunset with your friends. A link will be posted on his Twitter and Facebook for you to share. After you have shared the link, comment “shared” and we will pick a couple of people for something special from Garon. This something special will require your address so keep that in mind.
Note from Garon:
So, there I was, minding my own business—writing—when I’m told, “Say, how do you feel about a book tour?”
“I like books. I could stand to tour a library and look at them. Any famous volumes?”
“No, no—you go on tour to promote your books.”
“I don’t understand.”
“You go to bookstores, libraries, conventions, that sort of thing. You meet people. You tell them about your books.”
“But… don’t the books do that?”
I think I frustrate my publicity people. It’s not deliberate. Usually.
On the plus side, the tour went well. I got to meet a lot of fans, encourage new fans, and geek out with quite a lot of fellow sci-fi and fantasy people. GraniteCon was all sorts of fun, including Steven M. Nedeau, the author of Soulweb, as well as Mark Tufo—who is NOT a pen name!—the author of the Zombie Fallout series.
Then it was off to FenCon, in Dallas. Nice venue, nice people, and a ton of faces I will remember while completely forgetting every single name. I’m pretty sure there was a Loretta. There may have been a Stan. There was definitely an Abby, because I recall the cosplay of Abby from NCIS. No idea what her mundane name was/is.
My apologies to everyone whose name I have accidentally filed under “Huh?” in my headspace. I haven’t forgotten the people, just the arbitrary sounds I’m supposed to make to attract their attention.
Now, though, I’m home and recovering from the ever-present Con Crud—darn those rhinoviruses! They may not see well, but they heard me coming and mobbed me. Wait. That would be rhinocero… rhinoceroses… rhinoceroseses… plural of “rhinoceros.” Anyway, contact with large numbers of people has once again told me I need health insurance. After a few days, I’ll be back in proper form and no longer oozing around the house.
But, regardless of the watering eyes, aching head, and various other symptoms, I’m in front of my computer, making magic!
If a demonic entity pops up on the website, don’t panic. I’ve just had a major typo, that’s all. I’ll banish it during the rewrite.
For now, it’s off to another universe. I hope to see you there!
Check out all of Garon’s many works.
Eric spent Halloween eyeballing some would-be wizards at a Halloween party on one of the mundane Earth-worlds. Whatever happened to that? Well… I, on the other hand, simply stood by, watching and waiting as they worked themselves to exhaustion. I was more than a...

Speaking of book tours, the publicity demons (we need a new name) are looking into possibly having Garon do a fan book tour. What is this? Well you put Garon up for a night someplace safe with a bed and he does a reading and signs some books. This can happen in home, at a library, bookstore, or even in a well lit dungeon. Just make sure that he can eat and sleep. This is just an idea so send us your thoughts about it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will start seeing if we can put something together for mid 2018. This is not a guarantee but we would be happy to hear your proposals for his next outing.
Do you know a great convention that you think Garon would enjoy and would help get the word out about his work? Let us know!
Til next time!
