Welcome to my worlds!

I'm James Maxey, author of fantasy and science fiction. My novels include the science fantasy Bitterwood Saga (4 books) the Dragon Apocalypse Saga (4 books), numerous superhero novels including Nobody Gets the Girl and the Lawless series, the steampunk Oz sequel Bad Wizard, and my short story collections, There is No Wheel and Jagged Gate. 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. If you'd like to get monthly updates on new releases, as well as preview chapters and free short stories, join my newsletter!

Earlier today, I posted a longish post about religion on this blog by mistake. Sorry. I meant to post it on my second blog, Jawbone of an Ass. I routinely discuss my radical views on religion, politics, and circus freaks there; this blog is meant solely to focus on my writing news, of which there's been depressingly little lately. There are many things on the horizon, but writing is a frustrating industry as far as speed of things unfolding. I've had news since, like, February regarding a new development with my Dragon Age books. But... here it is almost June, and I still don't have anything in writing, so I'm still sitting on the news, since until contracts are in my hand, nothing is solid.

If my publishers don't provide me with actual news to announce soon, I may start manufacturing some news. I do plan to hold a contest in June to give away copies of Dragonseed. Stay tuned.

Assassin3, the book should be out any day now. I think the official release date is July 6, but stores sometimes get the books in advance, so it might be worth asking about at your local bookseller as early as next week. In any case, you don't have to wait long!
