So I was minding my own business one day when my editor pinged me with this link. Amazon has listed Last Song Before Night as a pick for Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of October, along with Margaret Atwood, Brandon Sanderson, Jim Butcher and other stellar authors. I am okay with this!
Next week I will be at the World Fantasy Convention in Saratoga Springs. I feel as if I got a bit of the lay of the land in our last trip. It is a charming, picturesque place with excellent restaurants and bars–and best of all, Northshire Books. Tor will be holding an event there on Wednesday, November 4th to celebrate its 35th anniversary with many authors. I can’t think of a better spot for such an event than Northshire, which is a beautiful space and was so hospitable on our New England tour. I will be there, signing books.
My World Fantasy Convention schedule is as follows:
- Friday at 11am I’ll be participating in a panel: “Scale in Epic Fantasy: Tensions Between the Epic and the Intimate” alongside Joshua Palmatier, Suzy McKee Charnas, Glen Cooke, and Chris Gerwell.
- I’ll be reading on Saturday at 3pm.
Come find me!
WFC will mark the last phase of my book tour, which began with guest appearances on various blogs, went on to an actual in-person tour of New England, and will culminate in a return to Saratoga. After this will follow a retreat back into the second book, which must get done!
Yes, yes, you must finish the (second) book!
