Remarkable Podcast featuring Jay Posey
In this episode of Remarkable, I get to have a conversation with a long-time friend of mine, Jay Posey, who is a narrative designer and video game developer as well as a best-selling science fiction author.

He s had integral roles in the development of video games for Red Storm Entertainment, an Ubisoft studio that was co-founded in 1996 by novelist Tom Clancy and known for award winning games such as Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, and Far Cry.

Outside of work, Jay has written a science fiction trilogy which was published by Angry Robot Books called Legends of the Duskwalker, the first of which is a best-selling novel entitled Three.

His 4th book, Outriders, is part of a new series, and will be available online and in a book store near you on May 3, 2016.

Note: Pre-order a copy of Jay’s new book, Outriders, before May 3 and send me your receipt to be entered for a chance to win an autographed copy of his best-selling book, Three (Legends of the Duskwalker Book 1)
