The Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour rolls on today with a post at the blog of my great friend, the brilliant, talented Kate Elliott.  Kate and I have known each other for many years and long ago decided that we are siblings separated at birth. (My birth, to be specific, since she is much, much, MUCH older than I am . . .)  The post is called “Top Ten Things I Do to Help Me Write,” and it’s on the things I do to keep writing and keep at least semi-sane.  The post is here.  I hope you enjoy it.

Plunder Of Souls blog tour buttonThe first week of the Summer 2014 A Plunder of Souls Blog Tour is winding down, with this post, which is not on the official schedule, but which counts anyway.  My Blog Tour, my blog, my rules.  This was a quiet week — next week things begin to pick up.  I’ll be visiting the blogs of Faith Hunter and Kate Elliott, and I’ll also be a guest at Fantastical Imaginations, All Things Urban Fantasy, Black Gate, and Drey’s Library.  And I’ll be starting a month-long appearance at my old virtual stomping grounds, Magical Words. There will be original content at all of these sites, so be sure to check in.  For a complete listing of the blog tour appearances with links to the sites, go here.

"A Spell of Vengeance," by D.B. JacksonAs the July 8 release of A Plunder of Souls approaches, I have also started my teaser countdown on Facebook.  Yesterday I linked to the short story that serves as a prequel to the new novel.  The short story is called “A Spell of Vengeance,” and it can be found at Tor. com, where is was published in 2012.  Also at Tor.com, you can find the first two chapters of the book.  Starting tomorrow, and continuing on a daily basis until the release, I’ll be adding passages from the book to my Facebook page.

Finally, I would like to direct you to the appearances page on the D.B. Jackson website, which I have recently updated to reflect the latest plans for my signing tour, as well as another conference appearance, about which I’m very excited.  In October, I will be an instructor at the Annual Conference of the South Carolina Writers’ Workshop.  I’ve attended the SCWW Conference several times before and have always had a great experience there.  I’m looking forward to this year’s meeting and hope to see many of you in Myrtle Beach. For more details, go here.

That’s all for now.  Have a great weekend.  And please preorder A Plunder of Souls!

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.
