Convention season is upon us! Next weekend I’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con here in Seattle. Like last year I’ll be in booth 1305 on the North end, across the skybridge from the main entrance. (Map Below)
The Big News this year is the release of my debut novel, The Summer Dragon: First Book of The Evertide, from DAW Books. Reviews are beginning to come in, and they’re very nice to read. Publishers Weekly said, “Illustrator Lockwood marks his debut as a novelist with this winning epic fantasy trilogy opener. […] Maia’s adventures are plotted and paced with impressive skill. Lockwood is as talented at describing the thrill of riding a dragon as he is at illustrating the spectacle (which he does for the book’s 21 interior illustrations and beautiful cover)… vivid imagery and a cast of rich, diverse characters combine to make Lockwood’s first full-length outing a rousing success.”
I don’t yet know yet if I’ll have any copies at ECCC, but I’ve decided to celebrate by holding an exclusive sale for those of you who have pre-ordered The Summer Dragon. All you have to do is show me or my assistants a printout (or email on a mobile device) of your pre-order confirmation receipt and you will get 1/3 off the price of any ONE print! Here’s your chance to get a LARGE print or a GICLEE at a huge savings.
You can Pre-Order at several locations:
The Signed Page is the best place to be assured of getting a signed copy, and it’s the only place you can get a personalization or remarque, short of tracking me down at a convention appearance. Highly recommended.
Barnes & Noble had 500 signed copies, and may still have some if you hurry!
Amazon of course will have it, but wherever you pre-order it from, please do me a huge favor by going to the Amazon site and leaving a nice review.
