Here we are signing ARCs of The Greyfriar: Vampire Empire Book 1 at the Pyr Books booth. They were free! And man, they went fast!
The folks from Pyr -- Lou, Jill, and Rene -- were professional and personal. We loved all of them. It was also great to meet our fellow Pyr authors like Sam Sykes, James Enge, Jon Sprunk, Andrew Mayer, Mike Resnick, Erin Hoffman, and Ari Marmell. The Pyr panel was jam packed and a lot of fun. We felt like we were part of the Marvel Bullpen during the high Silver Age!
The buzz on The Greyfriar was fantastic. Everywhere we went, people told us they couldn't wait for the book or had already pre-ordered it. Thanks to everyone out there for supporting the book!
And more, we heard a constant stream of praise for Pyr Books and our editor Lou Anders. Authors who had published multiple books with other houses treated us like gold because we were associated with Pyr and with Lou. It was pretty impressive to witness the respect for Lou and the label he's helped build among everyone in the genre. We felt honored to be a part of Pyr.
