Next Tuesday, April 28, is the release date for my writing friend Cindy Pon's debut YA fantasy novel, SILVER PHOENIX: BEYOND THE KINGDOM OF XIA (Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins). To celebrate the novel's release, I will be posting an interview with the author. Cindy, who is an artist as well as a writer, has agreed to send a beautiful, hand-designed bookmark to the first five people who comment on the interview. Be sure to check back on the 28th for the fun.
On Monday, May 11, I will be participating in Sandra Gulland's blog tour for the paperback release of her novel MISTRESS OF THE SUN (Touchstone). I will post a Q & A with Sandra and a review of the book. In addition, Sandra's publisher has provided a copy of the novel for me to give away to a lucky reader. More details will follow as the date draws near.
On a related note, Robin Maxwell is working on responses to the interview questions I sent her, but she must at present focus on the final revisions of her forthcoming novel O, JULIET. I will post the interview and my review of SIGNORA DA VINCI together as soon as Robin is able to get back to me. I wish her all the best as she polishes what is sure to be another marvelous novel!
Back to work now...
