Plunder Of Souls blog tour buttonSometimes, when we rush, we do stupid things.  To that end, I somehow forgot to mention in this morning’s post (below) that I am today’s guest at John Scalzi’s “The Big Idea” blog.  I’m writing about magic systems and how they do and sometimes don’t work. Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy the post!

The Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour rolls on with two more posts today. One is a different sort of post from most of the others I’ve done: It’s an interview with Ethan Kaille, the lead character in my Thieftaker series. Thanks to some excellent questions from Dominick Swennen, who is hosting me at his Fantastical Imaginations site, we had a lot of fun with the Q&A. You can find it here.

Today’s second post can be found at the blog site of my good friend and Magical Words colleague, Mindy Klasky. The post is about the magic system I developed for the Thieftaker books, and about the guidelines I usually follow when creating magic for my books. Here is the link.

I hope you enjoy both posts.
