Review Drive Giveaway

If you read The Sevenfold Spell, please review it! Details here!


I had a lot of fun on the blog tour, but I’m glad it’s over. I feel like I am home again after a long vacation. Besides, I was beginning to wonder if I was boring you guys.

In the future, I’ll restrain any “Me! Me! Me!” posts for the weekend, unless something really awesome happens, and I just have to squee. Or, you can catch it on my writing blog, which is 100% me, all the time, but which I post to once every 2 weeks or so. I DID learn about something that’s pretty exciting, but I have no idea if I can say anything yet, or even word from anyone official, so I’ll just keep mum.

And because you’re here reading this, I’m having a giveaway for The Sevenfold Spell, buried right here in the third paragraph! While I was touring blogs, I had giveaways at almost every stop, so I thought I should have a giveaway here. To enter, just leave a comment or send me an email with “D&R Buried Giveaway” (or something like that–I’m not strict) as the subject. I’ll draw a name in a few days. I promise next time (hopefully there will be one) I’ll do it ahead of the publication date.


So what’s coming up? This week I have two guest authors, a review by Katie, and possibly an as-I-read-it post. Plus, I haven’t done any One Year Later guest posts in a while, so I’ll try to rustle up some authors for that. I already have discussed it with Kelly Gay for November. I have had several publishers—especially e-publishers—get in touch with me recently about reviews, but I’ve been too busy to even consider that, but now that things are settling down I’ll do a couple of Publisher Reviews.

And I’m in the mood to do something new and different, so I’ll brainstorm about that.


I’ve been reading Prospero Lost by L. Jagi Lamplighter, who has a totally subdued website. It’s pretty good–a contemporary fantasy that doesn’t feel contemporary at all. Flawed characters for whom you can see some hope, and who do the right thing even if it’s the last thing they want to do. And a growly, 1940’s era detective that is (pronoun deliberately misused) distinctly out of place. The novel is based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest.


What have you been up to? I’ve missed you guys! One thing I’ve learned about this blog tour is just because people feel comfortable enough to post here, doesn’t mean you’ll be similarly comfortable at someone else’s blog.
