We Came. We Signed. We Conquered.

The book launch signing party for "RuneWarriors: Sword of Doom", book 2 in the RuneWarriors series, was a great success. Held on Friday, January 22nd, 2010, at the venerable Village Books (or should that be "Pillage Books"?) in beautiful downtown Pacific Palisades, California, the authors were seen signing books and speaking extemporaneously on Viking culture and Norse mythology. Fine wines and cheeses were provided by Allison Robbins Wines and videography by Jake Jennewein, Jim's thirteen-year-old son.

Thanks to Katie, owner of Village Books, and her entire staff for all the tireless support that they've shown to us and our books. In a very challenging economy, Village Books continues to be one of the finest independent bookstores in Southern California, and we salute all that they do to keep the love of reading alive and well.

Thanks also to everyone at HarperCollins, especially our brilliant editors Donna Bray and Ruta Rimas. A special shout-out to the fabulously talented artist Greg Call whose amazing artwork adorns both book 1 and book 2.

The event was also held to promote the release of book 1 in paperback, "RuneWarriors: Shield of Odin."
