But damn if this doesn't shadow them all.
Jared Axelrod has a book deal. YES. You read correctly. JARED AXELROD, has a book deal, with Tor (TOR!) for his first graphic novel. The novel in question “The Battle of Blood & Ink: A Fable of the Flying City.” will be coming out in the fall of 2011. It's going to be illustrated by the AMAZING Steve Walker and colored by our dear friend Natalie.
Since Jared is such an great guy, he is actually writing a free prequel to the book that you can follow here: http://www.fablesoftheflyingcity.com/
You don't need to listen to the prequel to enjoy the book, but it will give you a lot of extras, and it's free, so, why not?
I couldn't be more proud of my wonderful, talented husband. He's worked so hard for this, and I'm so proud of his persistence and work ethic. He amazes and delights me every day.
