Plunder Of Souls blog tour buttonI was on the road yesterday, driving home from North Carolina after a fun and successful signing tour that began with a book launch party at ConGregate in Winston-Salem, and then took me to Rock Hill, SC, Gastonia, NC, Richmond, VA, and Raleigh, NC. Along the way I reconnected with old friends, and met some new ones. It was a great trip.

But I did miss out on telling you all about yesterday’s stops on the Summer 2014 Plunder of Souls Blog Tour. So let me tell you about those, as well as about today’s stops.  Yesterday I was the blog of my good friend Stephen Leigh, with a post about minor characters who assert themselves and become major characters. The post can be found here.

I was also at Magical Words again, with a post about some of the odd things people sometimes say to writers.  You can read that post here.

Today, I am once again at Drey’s Library with a post about the books on my enormous and growing “To Be Read” pile that I am most excited to delve into.  That post can be found here.

And finally, but definitely not least, I also have a post up at SFNovelists that touches on the best part of my recent signing tour:  the fact that I was accompanied, at least for some of it, by my fifteen year-old daughter.  That post is called “Notes from the Road: The Shared Journey,” and you can find it here.

I hope you enjoy them all.

I had a fun signing last night at one of the nicest bookstores I’ve ever seen — The Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, Virginia.  Kelly, the shop owner was knowledgeable, professional, and incredibly nice, and we had a small but enthusiastic group of fans show up.  Great fun.  Today I drive to Charlottesville, Virginia where I will be signing this evening at Oakley’s Gently Used Books.  Hope to see some of you there.

In the meantime, the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour continues with a stop at the blog of Stephen Leigh.  I first met Steve years ago at RiverCon in Louisville Kentucky. We hit it off right away and have remained close friends in the years since.  Steve shares my passion for research and for writing historical fantasy, so naturally that’s what I wrote about for the post.  I hope you enjoy it.
