Fear not: I’m speaking metaphorically about the kissing.

I have to miss Dragon*Con this year because that’s the weekend we are closing on our home and I have to move from Arizona to Colorado. But I feel badly about it because I’ve heard that Dragon*Con is a good time and I know there are some people who aregoing who would have liked to say howdy.

Do you ever talk to your books? I do occasionally, when I'm really into the story.

I said two things repeatedly as I read The Cormorant:
1) "Holy shit!" and
2) "You brilliant mofo."

These two phrases do not reflect particularly well on me, but let me ex...more

Carmen Hello from Spain XD, thaks for the friendship, for writing the Iron Druid Chronicles and started me in Urban Fantasy!!

Nevey Badr Hello Kevin,
I just wanted to tell your books are the best and perfect books within the Urban Fantasy world; I think I shall never find an Urban Fantasy book with this perfection.
Your ruined them all but for a great cause and now I need your very own recommendations for something as half good as your books...

Thanks for writing The Iron Druid Chronicles...


Scott (Ozziespur) Hello from Australia Kevin !

I have red all your books bar the latest one in very quick time. Love them !
I read somewhere (and i could be mistaken) that you're not a fulltime author, that you work as a teacher or the like. Please stop & write more !!

Cheers mate.

Jonathan Merry Christmas!

message 11: by Alexia

Alexia Purdy Thanks for adding me!!! I'm a huge fan! :D

Stephanie Thank you for the friending me. I'm almost done with Hounded and really enjoying it. I'm looking forward on finishing it and starting the next.

Heather The Trapped cover looks amazing.

message 8: by Jess

Jess Thanks for friending me! I have been listening to the Iron Druid Chronicles on audiobook- and the mix between your sense of humor and Luke Daniels' narration is keeping me in stitches! It's been a long time since an author has made me laugh so much- so thank you! Keep up the good work!

Mary Thanks for accepting my friend request! =)
Have a great day & Happy Reading!
Cheers, Mary

message 6: by Maren

Maren I've been reading an awful lot of urban fantasy this last year, and I wanted you to know your series is my absolute favorite. The sense of humor, literary & pop culture references, Oberon, the different pantheons all wrapped up in a tidy and exciting plot with engaging characters... oh, I can't wait for the next ones! Thank you!

message 5: by Sarah

Sarah Thanks for accepting. I'm finishing off "Hammered" as we speak. The relationship between Atticus and Oberon is possibly my favourite aspect of your books.

I hope there will be more to come.

Oh, and I'll cry like a baby if anything ever happens to Oberon.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads) Hi Kevin. Thanks for accepting my friendvite. I am looking forward to reading your books. I love urban fantasy!

Heather Thanks for accepting my friend request.
