The Anniversary of “Daughter of Blood”
Yep, it’s exactly a year to the day since Daughter of Blood was published — and of course it feels like yesterday and forever at the same time!
We had some fun, too, including the reveal of DAUGHTER’s Tuckerization character, Che’Ryl-g-Raham, as well as the Tuckerization draw for WALL 4 which gave me a new character name to weave into the series, one June Gum Young.
The Daughter of Blood and Wall of Night fun continued into May when the series’ got its own FaceBook group, fittingly titled Haarth — all set up by readers so they could discuss the story, the characters and the world. 🙂
The immediate consequence was a Q&A on Twitter at #TheWallOfNight where I answered questions and chatted with readers about DAUGHTER and the series.
Professional and semi-pro reviews have been steady and generally very positive, kicking off with Romantic Times calling Daughter:
“a heady imaginative tale full of Lowe’s haunting prose and bold characters, that builds to a startling climax that will leave readers anxious for more.”
You can check out more reviews via my Daughter of Blood page on the website.
It was fantastic, too, to round off the year with DAUGHTER making Fantasy Literature’s list of Favourite Books of 2016.
And very nice, too, to see Daughter of Blood featured on my US publisher, Harper Voyager’s “Awards Season Is Upon Us” post — and with the pleasure of such excellent company, too: all fellow travellers published in 2016.
As for 2017, my wish is that both DAUGHTER and the WALL series’ following continues to grow (even unto Facebook Group Haarth becoming it’s own demographic — now wouldn’t that be nice… 😀 ) while I beaver ahead with WALL4.
