ALCHEMY reviews, ConDFW and other news

The Alchemy of Chaos final front coverWell, now The Alchemy of Chaos is out in the world, and the early reviews have been pretty strong.
"The Alchemy of Chaos is another stirring story of magic and mayhem." - The Qwillery (There's also an interview with me at the same link.)
"This is a fun and exciting fantasy story that highlights the author’s imagination and dexterity at creating a compelling adventure story"  - Nightowl Reviews 
"It takes a fun addictive book that I just outright enjoy for me to read it that fast, and this is that type of book."  - The Speculative Herald    
"Fantasy adventure readers, especially fans of spell-wielding students, will enjoy these lively characters and their high-energy story." - Publisher's Weekly 
Also, I did an AMA over at Reddit/r/Fantasy, which inspired the folks at Suvudu to curate the answers they found most interesting.  I also was a featured Big Idea on Scalzi's Whatever.
All in all, The Alchemy of Chaos has had a nice launch week.
