I've accepted Gail Z. Martin's invitation and will participate in the Hawthorn Moon promotion which will take place on June 21st. The long and the short of it is that it's a global online event providing a sneak peek at The Blood King and other new content in the Chronicles of the Necromancer series.
Martin's debut, The Summoner (Canada, USA, Europe), was also one of Solaris' launch titles earlier this year. Solaris is a new fantasy and science fiction imprint whose novels are being released on both sides of the Atlantic. The Summoner, first volume in the Chronicles of the Necromancer duology, has been been doing very well in terms of sales, and I'll read it later this summer.
The promotion will take place at http://www.solarisbooks.com/ and http://www.chroniclesofthenecromancer.com/. Highlights will include the unveiling of the cover art for The Blood King, excerpts, audio reading from the second volume, various interviews, giveaways, a podcast, live chat, blog updates from the author, and more.
As for me, I'll interview Gail in the near future. That Q&A will be posted later on, although I don't know for certain if I'll be able to have it go live on June 21st. With interviews with Scott Lynch, R. Scott Bakker, Steven Erikson, David Bilsborough coming up this month, and with interviews with Katherine Kurtz, Peter F. Hamilton and Greg Keyes on stand-by, I'll see what I can do.
There will also be a giveaway for a signed copy of The Summoner. The announcement for this contest will coincide with the Hawthorn Moon promo, of course!;-)
Meanwhile, you can visit the aforementioned websites to learn more about The Chronicles of the Necromancer, Solaris, and their books. You'll find sample material and much more!:-)
