Last Stop On The Blog Tour—A Guest Post & Joint Giveaway With Kate Elliott
Well, we began the journey together a month ago, with publication of the Blog Tour Schedule on 26 March.
Now today is the last stop on the official Tour—but I’m finishing in grand style with a guest post with fellow epic fantasy author, Kate Elliott, on her home site I Make Up Worlds. (What a great blog name!)
The post is titled “Building Fantastic Worlds: ‘It’s A Mystery'” and begins:
“Over the past few weeks, at various stops on The Gathering of the Lost blog tour, I have discussed a number of facets of the story, including environment, war, romance, history, adventure and writing strong women characters.

But there is more—because this is the final stop on the Tour there is another joint giveaway to finish up in style. Full details are on Kate’s blog but basically there are two books sets available to be won:
- Set 1: A copy of The Heir of Night and a copy (your choice) of either of Kate’s Spirit Gate (Crossroads 1) or Cold Magic (Spiritwalker 1); and
- Set 2: A copy of The Gathering of the Lost and a copy (your choice) of either of Kate’s Shadow Gate (Crossroads 2) or Cold Fire (Spiritwalker 2)
And all you have to do to enter the draw is post a comment: easy peasy!
But regardless of whether you comment, I hope you enjoy the post.
