reviews and such

Gabe Chouinard has posted a thought-provoking treatise on The Crooked Letter and reviews in general here, in which I am exhorted to become “more purple, so to speak”. It’s a fair call. 🙂 Check it out. He has lots of interesting things to say.

(Late addition: the comments to this post include an explanation of the title of the The Crooked Letter. Anyone not wanting to wait until the last book of the series can get the answer now–not that it in any way constitutes a spoiler.)

Also The Library Journal has reviewed The Blood Debt:

‘The second instalment in the author’s “Books of the Cataclysm” series (after The Crooked Letter) follows the adventures of three companions who battle the unknown to save their families. Set partly in the modern world and partly in a fantasy environment drawn from archetypal myths and legends, this epic belongs in most fantasy collections.’


Thanks, lastly, to everyone who came to my signing at Borders last night. It was great to see so many familiar and friendly faces. I’m heartened by the feedback. The Devoured Earth really feels like it’s out, now. 🙂
