My European Speaking Trip

I will be giving a series of talks in Europe, from March 3rd through March 15th. Some are open to anyone who wants to come, others you should check with the sponsoring group. They are:

I cancelled the last two talks on account of the Coronavirus and flew home on the 13th. If I had not cancelled, the Ljubljana talk would have been live streamed with no audience actually present and I probably would not have been able to get to Prague, due to the travel ban imposed, I think, just before I was scheduled to fly there.

Brothers is Out

My third novel has just been published. It is available on Amazon as both a paperback and a kindle. The cover is by Anna Krupitsky.

Brothers is the sequel to Salamander, my second novel, unrelated to Harald, my first. The setting is about fifty years after Olver, that world's equivalent to Newton, took the first large steps towards converting magery from a craft to a science. 

For those who have read Salamander ...  . The book starts with Eirick, the thirteen year old son of Lord Iolen, stranded in Forstmark at the court of its ruler by his father's death. 

He is, as Mari later comments, a much nicer person than his father.
