Plunder Of Souls blog tour buttonYes, perhaps that’s a lot of fanfare for a blog tour, but I’m excited and hey, it’s my blog, right?  So, yes, the Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour is underway, with a post today at the SFNovelists website.  SFNovelists is a blog I help maintain along with over a hundred other published authors of fantasy and science fiction.  It’s a great site, and a terrific resource for fans of the genre and for aspiring writers.  My post today is actually about setting up and maintaining a blog tour, so for those of you interested in using social media as a promotional tool, it might be helpful.  I hope you’ll check it out.

Today’s post comes as I prepare for the release of A Plunder of Souls, the third book in my Thieftaker Chronicles, which began with Thieftaker (Tor Books, 2012) and Thieves’ Quarry (Tor Books, 2013).  The book will be released on July 8, two weeks and a day from now. So stay tuned, because the Blog Tour is just getting started, and there will be lots of new posts and even some book giveaways along the way.

Today I am posting at Magical Words, the group blog about the craft and business of writing that I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, John Hartness, Mindy Klasky, and several others.  The post is called “On Publishing and Writing: A Sale, and a Study in Perseverence,”  and it gives the long and tortured background of a series — a contemporary Urban Fantasy trilogy called the Weremyste Cycle — that I have just sold to Baen Books.  I’m incredibly excited about the sale; even more than I would be usually.  This post explains why.  I hope you enjoy it.
