News and Updates!

08 Aug

So, I thought I’d not take up much of your time and let you know about some cool stuff I’ve found. 🙂 I’m sure many bloggers have this news, too, but there’s no harm in spreading it!

First off, here’s something that sounds a bit strange, but on reflection may not be a bad idea -it’s news regarding who has been chosen to script the games (PC, Console, Other, etc) that Red Eagle Entertainment will be doing for the Wheel of Time:

“the studio (Red Eagle) announced it has signed Hollywood scribe Chris Morgan as story director on the project.
Morgan is perhaps best known for his (arguably ignominious) reputation as the writer behind a number of Hollywood blockbusters, including such heavily panned box-office successes as The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, and Wanted.”

Okay, I’m just a bit scared, but I will say this: I’ll be optimistic until the game(s) for me to change my opinion. What do you all think? Good idea, bad idea?

Also, here’s some concept art:

Have no idea what it depicts, but it looks cool. 🙂 Check out the full post here! And also, check out this link to wet your appetites a bit more!

Next up, Michael Cobley has released two excerpts (so far) from the sequel (and book 2 in his trilogy, Humanity’s Fire) to Seeds of Earth, The Orphaned Worlds! 🙂 Check out the first excerpt here, and the second excerpt here. Mike has also graciously let slip that there’ll be a third excerpt coming! 🙂 Btw, these are excerpts from the first draft, so they may not be the same when in the finished book!

And third, but definitely not least, this is my last reminder for the giveaway running at the moment for Chris Evans’ The Light of Burning Shadows – get your entries in!! I’ll be closing the giveaway in a couple of hours, so if you haven’t yet entered, get to it! 🙂 I’ll be announcing the winners tomorrow, so check your inbox – I’ll be needing your addresses! 🙂

Wednesday or Thursday next week I’ll be posting my review of Chris’ debut, A Darkness Forged in Fire, so keep an eye out for that. 🙂

Until tomorrow,

Be EPIC!

    The WoT game has me freaked out! The more i research this, the more i’m getting scared! the developers are sketchy and the writer, well lets just say that the conversion of WoT to game did not immediately remind me of fast and furious. i’ll reserve judgement.
