“Epic” Giveaway, Plus Also Coming Up…
Memories of Light by Brandon Sanderson, the Final—yes Final!—Book In Robert Jordan’s Epic “Wheel of Time” series!
Memories of Light will be out on January 8 and I am very excited that my NZ publisher, Hachette, are giving me the opportunity to do a giveaway for the new book ahead of that date.
Full details will be on the blog Monday 17, but I just wanted to give all my readers who are Wheel of Time fans a headsup to look out for that.
Also Coming Up…
Tomorrow, December 16, is my friend and fellow author, Ripley Patton’s birthday—and she plans on celebrating by releasing the hardcover edition of her debut YA novel, Ghost Hand.
She will also be doing a guest post right here on “…Anything, Really” talking about the characters in her new novel, particularly the central protagonist, Olivia Black.
As the blogmaster-general, I have already read the post and can tell you that it’s a great read and well worth checking out tomorrow.
And hey, I know a lot of you are a wee bit shy of commenting, which is fair enough—but Ripley is a debut novelist, so perhaps consider showing her your appreciation with a comment.
Yes , it’s about time we had an another review and so I’m very pleased to say that Andrew Robins has read the recently released Aralorn by Patricia Briggs. This is not a new Mercy Thompson novel–that will be next year, and yes, I already have my hand up!—but is actually epic fantasy and comprises two earlier novels republished in one edition: Masques and Wolfsbane.
So that will be on the blog some time next week. (But not Monday, because of the Memories of Light giveaway post., above, and not Tuesday because that would be out-rageous given Tuesdays belong to the Tuesday Poem!)
I shall be guest editor on the Tuesday Poem Hub this week, where I will be featuring a poem by Sarah Broom, from her wonderful Tigers at Awhitu collection (Auckland University Press, 2010.)
And my Tuesday poem here on “…Anything, Really” will be Riemke Ensing’s Oh Lucky Man, so all in all I think this Tuesday’s going to be an excellent day for poetry and a grande finale for the poetry year. (The Tuesday Poem Hub will not resume until late January.)
And yes, with luck, I hope to get my What I’m Reading post on Laini Taylor’s Day’s of Blood & Starlight done before “you know what” later this month… (No, I am not referring to the Mayan calendar non-event; shame on you! ) I am referring to that other annual “you know what” that is almost upon us like a juggernaut!
