Since many of you appear eager to learn what's coming up, here is a few things I have on tap for your pleasure!:-)
- The Melanie Rawn interview will likely come first. I should be sending her the questions by the end of the week.
- When I set up the Raymond E. Feist contest last month, I was granted a mini-interview with the author. Just five questions, but it's better than nothing, right!?! This one should see the light fairly soon. . .
- I have secured an interview with Greg Keyes, and will be teaming up with Rob Bedford for that Q&A. Rob should send me his questions in a couple of days. After perusing his, I'll add my own and send that to Del Rey's publicity department.
- I have secured an interview with China Miéville. It will be conducted next February, to coincide with the release of his new novel. Should be a good one!;-)
- I have also secured an interview with Peter F. Hamilton. It will coincide with the paperback release of Judas Unchained, hence in March.
- Although nothing is for certain yet, I'm gunning for interviews with Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Hopefully they will see the light!
- I still have three copies of Melanie Rawn's Spellbinder up for grabs! Just scroll down for the details. . .
- I'm testing the waters with Transworld for a copy or two of Pratchett's Wintersmith. I have a very good relationship with the publicists at Transworld, so there's a good chance that you'll see this one soon!
- I've inquired about the possibility for a Hunters of Dune contest. No word as of yet. . .
- Tor Books have a good fall schedule, and I'll be working hard to try to get you guys the opportunity to win a few free novels! Titles of interest include Kate Elliot's Spirit Gate, George R. R. Martin's The Ice Dragon, David Farland's Sons of the Oak, and L. E. Modesitt, jr.'s Soarer's Choice.
- There are always other possibilities, but that's about it for now.
- I'm currently reading Ian Cameron Esslemont's Night of Knives. Pretty good so far. . .:-)
- After that, I'll likely read Feist's Flight of the Nighthawks and Into a Dark Realm.
- Once I'm done with those, I may give this little known author a chance. He goes by the name of George R. R. Martin. I've heard good things about him. They say he's in the same league as Goodkind!;-) Can't possibly go wrong!
- As always, I welcome your feedback. So feel free to leave a comment or two!
