New York Times bestselling authors Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert—son of the legendary Dune author, Frank Herbert—will soon be hitting to road for a book tour supporting their latest book, Sisterhood of Dune, their twelfth collaboration in the popular long-running series.
The tour is a “double tour,” meaning Kevin and Brian will be touring at the same time but at different locations across the United States.
The tour kicks off on January 3—with Brian signing at University Book Store in Seattle, WA; and with Kevin at Barnes & Noble in Lone Tree, CO—and runs through January 11. For the full list of dates, click here. If you live near one of the tour locations, stop by and pick up a book.
And if you have our special holiday e-issue, which features Kevin’s short story “Santa Claus Is Coming to Get You,” I’m sure he’d be glad to sign your e-reader.

The Shock Totem holiday e-book has been reviewed by Hellnotes and The Crow’s Caw. They dig it!
In general, this issue seems to have gone over well with readers. If you purchased a copy, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Especially in a review on Amazon. The reviews really do help.
And this will help us decide whether or not to do this again next year.
It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally happened. All four issues of Shock Totem plus our brand-new holiday e-book are now available for the Kindle (other formats coming soon). The first two issues and the holiday issue are $0.99, while issues 3 and 4 are $1.99 (because they’re nearly double in size).
[ from one of my all-time favorite albums ]
I originally paid to have issue #1 done by a “professional.” I wasn’t too impressed. So I decided to attempt to teach myself. Easier said that done when you’re as busy as me. But when we decided to do this new holiday issue, which was to be an e-book release, I had no choice but to buckle down and learn the formatting. I wasn’t paying anyone $150 for a two-month turnaround on a rather unimpressive-for-the-cost product.
So this past Monday, after Anthocon, I sat down and began teaching myself how to rock this formatting. A week later, and all our issues are done, including a redesign of issue #1 so that it matches the others.
If you’ve been waiting to check us out, now is the perfect time. All four main issues and the holiday issue for LESS THAN $7! That’s a wicked deal.

And please, if you see any issues with the layout, let me know. As I mentioned, I’m a total noob at this e-design stuff. Thanks!
