Another day on the Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour, another couple of posts. Today, I’m visiting another writer friend, Alyx Dellamonica, with a post about the things I read as a child.  It was a fun post to write — a chance to reminisce. You can find the post here.  I hope you enjoy it.

I’m also back at Drey’s Library, where I am the featured author for July.  Today’s post is about building the relationship between Ethan Kaille, the conjuring, thieftaking hero of my Thieftaker books, and Sephira Pryce, his beautiful and deadly rival and nemesis.  That post can be found here.  And while you’re at Drey’s Library be sure to enter the contest to win a free signed copy of the newest Thieftaker novel, A Plunder of Souls!

The Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour stops today at Drey’s Library, for my second appearance this month, and at the blog of my agent, friend, and fellow author, Lucienne Diver. At Drey’s Library, Sephira Pryce, the beautiful and dangerous thieftaking rival and nemesis of my hero, Ethan Kaille holds forth on the best inventions of modern technology. This is a post you will not want to miss. Especially because it coincides with the start of a giveaway of a signed hardcover copy of the recently released A Plunder of Souls, the third novel in my Thieftaker Chronicles!

At Lucienne’s blog, I write about where characters end and the author begins.  In what ways am I like Ethan Kaille?  In what ways am I different?  Read the post and find out.

And, of course, A Plunder of Souls is now out in hardcover, ebook, and audio book formats and is available for purchase at all booksellers.  I hope you enjoy it.

The Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour takes me to two more sites today.  I have an article up at the blog of Black Gate Magazine on “The Life and Times of a Midlist Author.”  It’s actually a follow up to an article by Garrett Calcaterra that appeared last year at Black Gate. Garrett interviewed me for the article and I thought it was an important enough subject that I should revisit it this year.  I hope you find it interesting.

I am also at Drey’s Library, where Ethan Kaille, the hero of A Plunder of Souls and the other Thieftaker books, takes readers on a brief tour of Boston as it appears in the summer of 1769.  This was a really fun post to write, and I hope you have as much fun reading it.

Two big posts up today in the continuing Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour.  The first is at Magical Words, the site on the craft and business of writing that I co-founded and still maintain with my friends Faith Hunter and Misty Massey. The post is on the origins of A Plunder of Souls in the short story “A Spell of Vengeance,” which was published at Tor.com in 2012.  You can read the post here.

The second post is at All Things Urban Fantasy, who have welcomed me back for the third straight year.  I’m grateful to them.  This post is a fun one:  it’s an interview with Ethan Kaille, the hero of the Thieftaker books, conducted by the Boston Gazette, the leading Whig newspaper of the time.  And it gets better: in addition to the post, there is also a contest.  I’m giving away a signed, hardcover copy of A Plunder of Souls to some lucky reader!  So visit the site and enter the contest!!  And good luck.

priceofdoingbusiness_cov1_smToday, I am back at Magical Words, the blog on the craft and business of writing that I co-founded with Faith Hunter and Misty Massey, writing about creating characters, and celebrating the release of the newest Thieftaker short story, “The Price of Doing Business.”  The story can be found today at Tor.com. It is about Ethan Kaille’s first encounter with the lovely and deadly Sephira Pryce, who would become his rival in thieftaking and his arch nemesis.  The post can be found here.  I hope that you will check out both the story and the post, and I hope that you enjoy them both.

Today is a very special day on the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour.  I am at Bitten By Books for an all-day book launch and giveaway.  Actually, I’m not there — Sephira Pryce is.  For those of you who don’t know, Sephira is the nemesis of my hero, Ethan Kaille, in the Thieftaker books.  She is the most renowned, influential, and successful thieftaker in Boston; she is also ruthless, dangerous, cruel, keenly intelligent, and charmingly alluring.  I hope you will stop by to ask her a question or two.  Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy today’s event and the interview with Sephira.  And best of luck in the contest!

After a really fun release day for Thieves’ Quarry, and for the paperback edition of Thieftaker, I am back at work today with four stops on the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour.

The first post is actually a short story that I co-wrote with my writing BFF and Magical Words co-founder, Faith HunterThe story can be found at Faith’s website.  It features Ethan Kaille, the hero of the Thieftaker books, and Jane Yellowrock, the star of Faith’s bestselling series, and we’re thinking very seriously of expanding it into a novella.  So check it out, and stay tuned!

The second post is actually one that was originally scheduled to go up yesterday, before life intervened.  But I finally have a post up at the blog of my wonderful friend Mary Robinette Kowal, writing about “My Favorite Bit” in Thieves’ Quarry.  “My Favorite Bit” is a feature she has been running on her site for some time now, and it was a fun post to write.

My terrific agent, Lucienne Diver is also hosting me on her site, where I am writing about writing historical fiction and using point of view to reinforce my setting.  For those interested in the craft of writing, this should be a really interesting discussion; hope to see you there.

And finally, I am interviewed today by the fabulous Drey at Drey’s Library.  I’ll be the featured author for July at the site, so this is just the first of several appearances I’ll be doing there over the next several weeks.

The Day After Release Day, and I’m still going strong.  Thanks for sharing another day with me!
