As many of you probably already noticed, I scheduled a book signing at the local Borders. Check out the Events page for details.
Last year, while writing “How Burlmarr . . .”, I held a contest to come up with the draconic word for “lightning.” I picked three finalists from the entries. Now that the book is out, many of you have read the line where Burlmarr/Palarandusk utters a draconic phrase to cast the spell chain lightning:
Svent throden ghiks mirth krahkxiss!
The literal translation of that line is “Kill many orcs with lightning!” The word I chose, “krahkxiss,” was submitted by Kaiscomet. As a prize for being selected, I’m going to send him a signed copy of Realms of the Dragons II. I’ve been unable to contact him so far, though, and would appreciate anyone’s help if they know how to get a hold of him.
