Elysian Fields–And the Beat Goes On and On

Just like the Energizer Bunny, right? Yesterday was INSANE, but thanks so much to everyone who played along. I had a few things pop up unexpectedly yesterday and will include them here. If you’ve already visited those sites, many, many thanks! If not, well, head on over!

Remember there are three types of prize stop: Tier 1 is a book giveaway (I believe they’re limiting to U.S.; this one’s being done by the publisher, so apologies to my international readers). Tier 2 is signed book/swag or choice of $10 gift card or Book Depo order (international welcome). Tier 3 means a tour stop with the official tour-wide prizes of iPad2 (or Kindle 8.9-in HD if preferred) or, for international winners, US$250 shopping spree at Book Depo.

Today’s stops (and yesterday’s late stops):

* There’s a flash-fiction story, “Playing with a Full Deck,” today at What the Cat Read. This is a Tier 3 stop.

* I’m at Coffee Time Romance today, talking about my inspiration for my wizarding world. This is a Tier 1 stop.
*My guest post (originally scheduled for Monday) is supposed to go up today at Fantasy-Matters, and you can also win a copy of Elysian Fields (Tier 1).
*I’m at Paranormal Unbound today, talking about the questions no one ever asks me! This is a Tier 2 stop.
*I’m at Tor.com in what I think has been my favorite interview ever, “Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe.” Tier 2 for comments on this one, just for readers from this blog.

* I’m at Heroes and Heartbreakers, talking about the action-to-romance ratio in urban fantasy–what’s your perfect split? Tier 2 on this one, just for readers from this blog.

* There’s also a “First Look” over at Heroes and Heartbreakers today, from Tori at Smexy Books.

Thanks to these bloggers for the new reviews!

  1. Between yesterday and today, Elysian Fields is off to a great release. Some very nice blog posts and comments from fans. If you have not seen Aurian’s blog, check it out. She has a great plan for Rand in the next book. Thanks for all who are involved for sharing their thoughts.

  2. Thanks, Roger and Miki–I love knowing you guys are going to be at the stops. I appreciate all of you who are following the tour!

    Roger, I think Aurian is going to lead the “kill Rand slowly” pack!
