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!

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.
