Rocky Mountain High

I'm in Colorado this week visiting friends and family, and technically on vacation (again), so today's post will be short.  I have a special treat for you, nonetheless.  Friend and fellow author Jeanne M. Bannon hosted me for an interview on her blog BeyondWords this past week.  If you'd like to read the interview, which includes questions about what inspired EOLYN, as well as the process of querying and publishing, please click HERE

In other news, Who Else! Books at the Broadway Book Mall in Denver, CO, hosted a signing for EOLYN on Saturday.  We had a small but very enthusiastic audience, with a lively discussion about the novel and the craft of writing fantasy in general.  A limited number of signed copies of EOLYN are still available at Who Else! Books, so if you are in the Denver area stop by the store soon if you'd like to purchase one.

I don't think I've announced this on the blog yet, but even if I have it's worth a reminder:  I've started posting audio-recordings of excerpts from the novel on a new YouTube Channel for EOLYN.  Chapters 1 and 2, as well as the Origin of Magic and a scene from the battle sequence are now available for your listening.  I'll be posting more in coming weeks.  Enjoy!

EOLYN is now available in Kindle format and should be coming out in Nook format any day now. Amazon also offers the hardcover print edition, while Barnes & Noble offer both hardcover and paperback editions.  The novel may also be at your local library; check EOLYN in libraries on this blog to find out, or run your own search on http://worldcat.org. 

That wraps up the updates for this week.  Thank you for stopping by, and I promise to be back to my usual posts, with some interesting discussions of the craft of writing fantasy, next weekend.  Enjoy your summer!
