Cogito Orbis’ second LibertyCon appearance will be at LibertyCon 30, June 30-July 2, 2017, held in the nearly-world famous Chattanooga Choo-Choo Hotel and Convention Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Daniel Allen Butler and Scott Bragg will be selling fresh-off-the-press, ink-barely-dry, hard copies (trade softcover format), along with CD copies, of our new book, The Achilles Gambit, on Friday afternoon in Authors’ Alley.  We’ll also have copies — CD and dead tree — of the first book of the Blade Files, The Nemesis Crystals.
Later, on Friday evening, in the Centennial Foyer, we’ll be leading a panel, “The Blade Files,” where we’ll be discussing — surprise! — the Blade Files novels.  How the series came to be, how we go about writing the books, where we would like to take the series and what we hope to see in regard to other authors coming to our house to play in the “Bladeverse” sandbox along with us.
Saturday night, at 9:00 PM, will be the official release party for The Achilles Gambit.  We don’t yet know in which room it will be held, so if you come looking for the party, be sure to ask for us by name.  (If you ask people where to find the loud, drunken Scotsman, they’ll just send you to see Michael Z. Williamson….)
