Peace Talks is here, and Battle Ground is only a month away! Have you preordered your copy yet? Today, in addition to a recap of the weekend’s Reddit AMA, we announce Jim’s Virtual Book Tour for Battle Ground, with a whole slew of opportunities to order signed copies!
You can also support your favorite local independent bookstore or preorder a regular copy through the Jim-Butcher.com Store! Or if you enjoy having James Marsters murmuring in your ear, snag the audiobook from our store or through Jim’s publisher.
This past weekend’s AMA had a LOT of fun reveals! You’ll want to do a ctrl-F on username jimbutcherauthor to read them all in full, but here’s a taste of the kinds of questions he responded to:
- Who or what are Bob’s parents?
- Will there be a sequel to The Aeronaut’s Windlass?
- Are there any well known historical Summer Knights?
- How old are the Unseelie Accords?
- Are soulgazes strictly the purview of wizards, or do other supernatural entities get them as well?
- Would you rather fight ten Mister-sized Mouses or one Mouse-sized Mister?
Battle Ground Virtual Book Tour
Next month, join Jim for a trio of live Q&As, two of which are free for everyone to enjoy. You can also preorder signed copies of Battle Ground. Act quickly, as many vendors’ signed copies of Peace Talks went FAST!
