Welcome to my worlds!

I'm James Maxey, the author of the Bitterwood fantasy quartet, Bitterwood, Dragonforge, Dragonseed, and Dawn of Dragons, as well as a pair of superhero novels, Nobody Gets the Girl and Burn Baby Burn. (Click on the titles to be taken to Amazon.) My Dragon Apocalypse series combines both superheroes and epic fantasy, and so far three books have been published, Greatshadow, Hush, and Witchbreaker. The fourth book in the series, Soulless, is still under construction, but, I swear, it will see the light of day! I've also published numerous short stories, the best of which are reprinted in my collection, There is No Wheel.

This website is focused exclusively on writing. At my second blog, Jawbone of an Ass, I ramble through any random topic that springs to mind, occasionally touching on religion and politics and other subjects polite people are sensible enough not to discuss in public.

Coming out in 2014 will be my Oz inspired novel Bad Wizard, published by Antimatter Press. I'm currently working hard to finish up another superhero novel, Cut Up Girl. Watch this space for news!

Witchbreaker Giveaway on Goodreads, Signing at Purple Crow, Illogicon


Three bits of Witchbreaker news: First, there's currently a giveaway going on at Goodreads. The drawing ends tomorrow at midnight, so act fast. Click this link to be taken to the entry page.

Next, Purple Crow Books in Hillsborough has graciously agreed to host a signing for Witchbreaker. It's scheduled for January 29th at 7:00pm. There will be dragon cookies! Purple Crow Books is a great little independent bookstore that really showcases local authors, so I'm tickled to finally have a formal signing there.

Finally, I should also mention that I'll be a guest at Illogicon in Raleigh next weekend, January 11-13. I'm on about six panels and have a reading on Saturday, so I won't be terribly hard to find if you come to the con. Last year's Illogicon was great, with excellent turnout for a first year con. If you feel a deep-seated need to come hang out with a bunch of geeky smart people (and who doesn't?), this con will be the place to be next weekend.

Dang - US only giveaway.

Any chance of a Canadian signing anytime in the near future?

Bob, I fear my travels don't have me coming even close to Canada for the foreseeable future. But, an international book tour paid for by a publisher would certainly be a nice career goal!
