Christian Authors all over Champaign? Gasp!!

I just know there are some tea totalers out there thinking, "See, I told you those fantasy authors are agents of the devil! Look, they are drinking champagne and boasting about it!"


Not champagne...we mean Champaign, as in the cool city in Illinois!

As a result of the Tribe Building Contest, author Christopher Hopper and I will be flying out to the great state of Illinois and having a private book signing party with Nightwing Tribe, the Tribebuilding Challenge Winner from last year.

But later that day, Christopher and I will descend upon the local Borders store to meet and greet the public. ALL are WELCOME!! You don't have to be an Elf! But please no Drefids or Warspiders!

So if you live in Illinois or will be in the area, please drop by and see us! Even if you can't go, tell friends and family who might be in the area. Signed books make RIGHTEOUS Christmas gifts! :-D

Here are the details of the event:

Where: Borders, West Town Blvd, Champaign IL
When: Saturday, Oct. 16th, 2pm-5pm
What: Authors Christopher Hopper and Wayne Thomas Batson
Why: Well, because we are two wild and crazy, entertaining author type dudes who will sword fight, insult each other (not you), and sign your books with all kinds of pithy wisdom stuff!

Hope to see you there! You are coming, aren't you? Don't make us beg. :-D

Ding Dong the Thread is Dead, the Wicked Old Thread is Dead!

Hallelujah! The Thread is Dead! A few months and 1754+ comments later, The Wicked Old Thread is Dead! And we have a WINNER!  WAY back in May, we kicked off the first Kill This Thread Contest. You can see the original thread HERE. Basically, the idea is that the thread lives as long as someone has posted a comment within 24 hours. If 24 hours go by without a new post, the thread dies. Well, the thread never actually died. I had to kill it b/c it went on forever. An amazingly dedicated group of posters, they were. And so, what I had to do is throw all the posters' names in a hat and pick a winner. My wife actually picked. And the winner is:

Lady Dragonkeeper

Lady Dragonkeeper, please email me with your snail mail address and name you want Christopher and I to sign the book to. We'll get it in the mail asap.

And thanks to all for being such enthusiastic participants.
