Faith Hunter Book Giveaway | Writeup on Scott Westerfeld Talk | New Prompt

Hi all, just a quick reminder that you can still sign up for a print-book giveaway of Faith Hunter's new book, Broken Soul, 8th in the fantastic Jane Yellowrock series. Check it out at the end of my interview with Faith as part of her book blog tour! Like Faith's Facebook page, follow Faith or me on Twitter, or like my blog for extra "points" in the drawing! (Rafflecopter accepts those likes/follows even if you have already done so, that is, you still get points if you *already* follow Faith on Twitter.)

This giveaway ends Tuesday night at midnight, but there are others on the blog tour, plus lots of other fun interviews, book reviews, and more.


I'm also pretty proud of my writeup on Scott Westerfeld's recent visit to Quail Ridge Books and More, promoting his new book, Afterworlds.

And while I finish reading Broken Soul for my review, here's a prompt for you, in honor of Jane Yellowrock:

Prompt: Choose any 3 of these 5 words to use in your opening paragraph: Beast, Blood, Blade, Curse, Mercy

Extra challenge: since these words are integral to Faith Hunter's urban fantasy series, switch your story up into a different genre, such as science fiction...


And so, with a loving heart, I offer you
I’ve heard many translations. Here’s one I love:
The light of the universe that shines within me recognizes
the light of the universe that shines within you.

Dogs in House
Houdini, Brindle
