Plunder Of Souls blog tour buttonToday on the Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour, I’m back at Magical Words — my “home” blog — with a post on plotting. Sometimes the hardest thing about writing in a series, particularly in one that consists of stand-alone novels, is keeping stories fresh as well as entertaining.  My post at Magical Words is about five things I do to keep my narratives new and interesting.  You can find the post here.

I am also visiting with my friend Brandy Schillace with a post about research and “Striking Research Gold.”  I’ve had some great discoveries as I have pieced together the history for my Thieftaker novels, and that was particularly true as I worked on A Plunder of Souls. You can find the research post here.

Finally, I would like to mention to all of you who live in the area around Charlotte, North Carolina that Faith Hunter, A.J. Hartley, and I will be signing books tonight at the Books-A-Million in Gastonia, from 6:30-8:30.  Come on out and say hello! (A listing of all my appearances can be found here.)

It’s Monday, and as I roll toward Virginia to begin the Summer 2013 THIEVES’ QUARRY Signing Tour, the Summer 2013 Blog Tour rolls on as well.  I will have a post up today at the blog of my kind and talented friend, Kate Elliott, on the ins and outs of doing historical research for writing.  Kate’s blog is here.

And I will also be answering a few questions today from my friend Brandy Schillace, who I have already visited once on this year’s Blog Tour.  I am most grateful to Brandy for having me back on her site, which is here.

I hope that you will check out both posts.  And I hope to see some of you this week during the signing tour.  More from the road as it happens.
