Eric I just want to start off by saying thank you for the novels you've written for us. Second, I would like to say i hope you can write for halo again soon. You knew what you were doing and you did great.Rxtor wrote:This is Eric Nylund. I normally just lurk on the HALO forums to see what’s going on with the community.
Since people are talking/ rumor mongering about me, I’d thought I’d clear a few things up.
Sort of but not. I’m stay at home dad now, consulting, and writing.
Last novel out was THE ENCHANTED KNOT in 2015. Latest novel is HERO OF THERA out this June 1st! There was a patch between 2013 and 2015 where I had too much work to produce novels regularly.
343 and I have circled each other for years, but we never quite seem to sync up— either our schedules are misaligned or we could never agree on what or how I should be involved. I even pinged Bonnie about the Narrative Director position ... but it appears that I was too late.
Me writing for games
Someone pointed out that writing novels is different than writing for games. Gold star! Too true. I have been working in the video games industry for 15 years, and have helped over 50 games get published (Gears of War, anyone?). The number is probably closer to 75-80 if you count the games that were canceled along the way… but that’s another story.
Is this the real Eric Nylund?
I’ll post a short confirmation on my facebook account that I did indeed post here :)
Take care everyone.
