LitRPG News

Matt Dinniman, author of the Dominion of Blades series, will be at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend March 14-17 at booth HG307. He’s an artist as well as an author and I believe the art will be the main focus of the booth. But he says he’ll have some print books for fans to buy and is more than happy to sign copies they may have. So, go stop on by say hello to Matt and buy some of his amazing art.

Jeffrey Falcon Logue, author of the Slime Dungeon Chronicles, is continuing to work on his side scroller game set in the same universe. This week he released some of the art work he’s commisioned for the design of the sprites and characters. It looks super cool. You can see what some of the monsters and bosses will look like. I’m just telling you cause I liked seeing it and it’s super fun to see the work on a LitRPG inspired game.

The latest audiobook from the War Aeternus series is out, and Soundbooth Theater has made a really great trailer for it. It not only captures the neat bits about that story but kind of for the series on whole.
