The topic for our final Night Bazaar post is meant to be “Halloween Reads.” But since I’m dashing off this post in an airport on my way to the World Fantasy Convention, I hope you’ll forgive me if I cheat and simply link to my last year’s Halloween post here at the Night Bazaar, in which I covered the same topic. Only thing I’d add this year is that two of the books on my last year’s list now have sequels: the Book of Cthulhu II anthology recently hit the shelves (more tentacles! More creeping eldritch horror!), and Kendare Blake’s Girl of Nightmares is an excellent follow-up to her YA horror/fantasy novel Anna Dressed in Blood. Go forth and enjoy!
I’ve had a lot of fun posting here at the Night Bazaar again, so as I say farewell, I also want to say: thanks. Thanks to everyone reading, lurkers and commenters alike, and to Liz Upson of Night Shade for keeping the blog going in 2012. Y’all rock.
If you want to keep up with me, I’ll be posting regularly on my personal blog, where I share book recommendations, pics of my favorite wilderness places and adventures, and of course all the latest news on the Shattered Sigil books and other authorial topics. Speaking of which, I’ve got two last pieces of news to share here:
- Thurs Nov 8 I’m doing an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit’s r/Fantasy forum – so if you’ve got a burning question about my books, my writing process, publishing in general - or even mountain climbing, canyoneering, skiing, figure skating, or engineering…come ask! You can post questions throughout the day and I’ll answer them live at 8pm CST.
- Want to win signed copies of The Whitefire Crossing and The Tainted City? Fantasy Book Café is holding a worldwide giveaway – see here for details, and to read an interview with me that covers everything from how I got started writing to why nobody’s married in the Shattered Sigil books.
And with that, I shall leave the Bazaar once more. So long, farewell, and thanks for all the comments!Read More...
