The book came out yesterday, and that morning I awoke to this stunning NPR review of Last Song Before Night:
“Myers’ depiction of Tamryllin and the land it inhabits is shadowy and lush, a tapestry of gossamer wonders as well as theocratic oppression and brutality. But the core of Last Song’s strength is its characters. Bound by enmities, rivalries, lust, sacrifices, and ancient tragedies, the novel’s sizeable cast forms a dizzying chemistry…Last Song Before Night is about music, but it’s also a work of music itself: Lyrical, dynamic, and winningly melodic.”

There are also lovely reviews at Tor.com, SF Signal, and Bookwormblues, and an exceptionally thoughtful review at Galleywampus. Paul Weimer at SF Signal, who reviewed my book, also interviewed me, which was a first. I’ve interviewed many authors, but had never been interviewed, myself!
Word of mouth counts for a lot. If you read Last Song Before Night and enjoy it, please consider leaving a review at Goodreads, Amazon, or wherever is most convenient for you. I am excited for my book to be out in the world and in your hands at last.
Oh, here I am autographing copies at the Union Square Barnes & Noble.
