Minecraft Novels at New York Comic Con!


People, there are MINECRAFT novels for tweens! Did you know this? I did not know this. Thankfully, Skyhorse Publishing enlightened me. Mark Cheverton – who goes by GAMEKNIGHT999 in Minecraft – wrote a series of books for kids when his own kids began playing the game, and he’ll be signing books at NYCC this weekend!

invasion of the overworldWhat’s better than that? MORE signings at Skyhorse’s booth, all from their sci fi/fantasy/horror imprint, Night Shade Books. They’re giving books away all weekend, and there’s a contest where the lucky winner will be the inspiration for a new character in Mark Cheverton’s next Minecraft novel. Drawings will be at 3:00PM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

You want more? Okay, there’s also going to be a LEGO diorama of Comic Con itself, created by Jeff Friesen, author of United States of LEGO. And on Sunday – KIDS’ DAY! – Skyhorse will host a LEGO play center for kids.
