Roy’s Own Page

Terror wights don’t read. But Roy gets more fan mail than I do, so I read it to him. He really appreciates your kind words, and he adores the photographs and hand-drawn pictures.

Roy, Terror Wight Cover ModelI made a page for Roy, so his fans can keep up with his latest exploits. Roy’s page has links to all the articles featuring your favorite terror wight, plus this candid shot I got of him earlier today. You can leave a message for Roy in the comments section.

Terror Wight Give-Away

Roy really wants you to have a copy of his ebook. Right now, he’s giving away the Kindle edition of Littlelot and the Real Monster.

Roy, terror wight and cover model   Take this book!

The terror wight still doesn’t grasp the concept of an electronic book.

“Give me a really big stack of books,” he said, “so I can give them away.”

I said, “I’ll give you an unlimited stack of books, Roy. Give away as many as you like.”

“Not big enough! I need a really big stack of books.”

Get Littlelot and the Real Monster

The give-away ends Monday at midnight (Pacific time, GMT-8). That’s 9 a.m. in Paris, Roy’s bedtime. He hopes to go back to the figurine drawer empty handed.

Please don’t disappoint the terror wight!

Roy is not happy

Unhappy Terror WightThe terror wight is acutely aware that the late release of The First Story pushes back the next one. Roy says he’s going to autograph covers of Littlelot and the Real Monster and give them to his friends in the figurine drawer.

I told him, “It’s an electronic book, Roy. It doesn’t work that way.”

But he wasn’t listening. He said, “Why can’t we put out my book first?”

“Roy, The First Story has to be first—it’s... the first story. It’s where the character earns his knight’s name.”

Roy grumbled under his breath, something about knights.

I said, “What did you say?”

“Lancelot is a pushover!”

Hypertext Magic Language

In the past few weeks I’ve been learning a new thing. It’s called hypertext magic language—HTML for short. It’s behind the words you read in an ebook and you can make beautiful things with it.

Although it took longer than I thought, The First Story of Littlelot is in the final proofreading stage. It will be available before the end of the year. Look for it on the Books page.

Meanwhile, here's a preview of the ebook.

This guy is fun to work with. To get him to make that face, all I have to do is look him straight in the eye and say, “Roy… No cookies!
