New Job News!

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve accepted a position as Managing Editor at Archvillain Games!

The tl;dr of it is that AVG, which makes impressive 3d tabletop miniatures, also creates 5e-compatible modules based around their minis. The modules led to worldbuilding. The worldbuilding led to a partnership with Ed Greenwood, and that led to plans for novels and a setting guide. I’ll be editing and managing the fiction side of the business, going forward. I’m excited to share this world with you, to run some adventures in it for you, and to bring you the richness of its history and peoples.

Ravenloft Feature

I can’t tell you about the project I just turned in, but I can talk about my previous project. And I would love to, because I’m very proud of it!

A small interview feature on me and my adventure is up on Yawning Portal, the D&D Adventurers League blog. Read a little about the background of RMH-11: Calling Upon the Dead at https://yawningportal.dnd.wizards.com/blog/ravenloft-mist-hunters-designer-interview-gabrielle-harbowy/. And enjoy that art!

A Title Appears From the Mists…

My D&D Adventurers League Ravenloft adventure has been released with its official title, which means I can now share its official title. Presenting… “Calling Upon the Dead,” in which

“a séance among friends new and old leads the investigation somewhere deeper and darker than ever before. Conjuring the restless spirits of slain adventurers, you rely on them to guide you to the next piece of the puzzle.”

Sale: Fantasy Magazine!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve made my first pro magazine sale, with the story “The Dybbuk Ward” to FANTASY MAGAZINE. It will publish in the March 2022 issue, available online or by subscription.

This is a very personal own-voices story about mental illness, Judaism, and unfinished business. I’m eager to share it with you, and grateful to FANTASY for picking it up.

Check out their current issue for other excellent stories.

Aether’s Pawn available for preorder now!

I started my career as an editor at Dragon Moon Press, and I’m thrilled to be returning there as an author. It means a lot to me, to be reprinting my first novel (formerly HELLMAW: OF THE ESSENCE) with my first publisher.

Gwen Gades of Dragon Moon Press designed this gorgeous new cover, and Tamsyn Muir’s blurb has me over the moon!

The e-book is available for preorder now at Amazon (which apparently doesn’t want to let you preorder a hardcover), and the print edition will be on sale there and at other vendors starting February 28, 2022.

This has been a long and wonderful journey, and if you notice from the “Book 1” up there, it’s not over. I invite you to come along with me, and Quills, for a hell of a ride.
