Heather and I went out to A Real Bookstore tonight for an appearance and book signing by Kevin Hearne, author of the Iron Druid Chronicles. I commented on the first three books in the series, Hounded, Hexed, and Hammered, earlier and still recommend them to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy. Appearing with Kevin was Jaye Wells, a local author who also writes urban fantasy. The two of them were great together, really playing off each other well. Listening to them talk about writing and the publishing industry was extremely informative. It’s a tough business to get ahead in, and I wonder how it’s going to change with the growth of e-books and distribution networks like the one supporting Amazon’s Kindle readers. Heather picke up one of Jaye’s books and I picked up Tricked, the fourth book in Kevin’s series. We got them all signed and even enjoyed some free drinks courtesy of the authors.
