Can’t Keep a Great Buncha Folks Down

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 | Posted by Jason M Waltz @ Rogue Blades

Writing Fantasy HeroesOr as Charlie Daniels sang, “RBE will rise again.” Or maybe not, but it is what he was thinking. Or maybe not.

It is, however, the truth. RBE (Rogue Blades Entertainment) has resurfaced online, finally putting up its first website in two years at Rogue Blades Presents.

It’s been a bit and then some, but the house is making strides and a comeback’s round the bend. The site is up, the books are all listed, the authors and artists are accounted for, and the future looks promising.

In recreating the site, I even discovered something spectacular: all of the old Home of Heroics posts! Granted, they’re buried in a mass of gibberish in an XML file, but it’s nothing a little elbow grease, good eyes, and lots of time won’t salvage. Volunteers?

Drop on by the new joint and share your thoughts of it; grab a book while you’re there.


  1. Congratulations Jason! The new site looks terrific.

    Glad to hear you found those Home of Heroics posts, too! You assembled a really great collection of writers, and it would be marvelous to have those posts accessible once again.

  3. I add a pic of WRITING FANTASY HEROES to every post on the blog, just by default. Turns out it was appropriate for once. :)

    Congrats, Jason.

  5. Glad they are back up. Still want to buy some of their books. So many books, so little funds:(

  12. That’s fantastic news, Jason. With your love and enthusiasm for the genre, it was only a matter of time…

    Welcome back RBE!

  13. Wow. All I can say again is Wow. I am humbled by all your kind words and the overabundance of excitement at this announcement of RBE’s return to the web. It is most encouraging.

    But I must forewarn you: RBE will (has to) be slow in its momentum, slow and measured, methodical and strategic. If I can be, and I sure hope so. I bit off more than I could handle first time out the gate, and it took some major slap downs to force me to recognize that. Not that I or RBE are in a spectacularly new and strong position, we’re just in a new and somewhat sound position. If I take measured strides and don’t try to do everything all at once like I did.

    Yes, there will be more titles coming out. Both Challenge! titles will appear, a special project that we just signed, followed eventually by some more anthologies and (hopefully) some collections. I will try to bring Assassins to print, in some form and quantity, but that may be too far gone, we’ll have to see.

    Again, thank you all for the terrific welcome back – I truly appreciate it.
