[singlepic id=186 w=320 h=240 float=right]This has been ramping up all summer, but the announcement officially came down today: Actionopolis is back!
Actionopolis is the book like featuring high-octane, high-adventure prose fiction by a myriad of talented writers from comics, film, video games and the like. The company initially published seven well-received books, including my Heir to Fire: Gila Flats novel, which was illustrated by Mike Dubisch.
Now they’re back with a new wave of 16 new books for the Amazon Kindle platform. The new books include my long-awaited Legend of Tigerfist: Enter the Tiger as well as the sequel Heir to Fire: Zephyr Mesa.
You might be saying, “b-bu-but I love Actionopolis books, but I don’t have an Amazon Kindle reader.”
Well, did you know that Kindle books can now be read on your Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Blackberry or Android device as well as the Kindle reader? Just download the right app for your device!

The first issue of Scratch9 is due to ship this month and I realize I’ve been a bit remiss in posting about the book here at robworley.com. I have been keeping Scratch9.com current with all the latest and greatest buzz, of if you’ve been visiting there you’re up to speed.
If not here’s some interesting stuff you missed:
Now, we don’t know the exact shipping date of issue #1. We’ll have that for you soon. If you haven’t bugged your local comic shop you may want to do that now because they may have overlooked us! If you want to help your retailer order a copy of any of the issues so far, you should give him these ordering codes: Issue 1 – #JUN10 0739, Issue 2 – #JUL10 0753 and Issue 3 – #AUG10 0753

If you’re looking for something to do with the kids tomorrow, bring ‘em on over to the Kids Read Comics convention Saturday or Sunday (June 12 & 13)!
I’ll be there handing out and autographing free limited edition Scratch9 posters! These are similar to the mini-posters fans got on Free Comic Book Day but they’re much larger: 12″ x 18″! They are also printed specifically for the KRC show and limited to 500 copies.
This is a completely free show and the focus is on informing young readers and creators about the art and craft of making comics. It’s held at the Henry Ford Centennial Library at 16301 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI 48126, between Interstate 94 and the Southfield Freeway • phone 313-943-2330.
See ya there!Read More
