CreatureCourtCast #2: Fantasy with Frocks

  • Posted on May 27, 2010 at 10:47 pm

Here I am again with a CreatureCourtCast for your listening pleasure. You can play it directly or download it from here, or subscribe over in iTunes. In this episode, I do a reading of the first scene I ever wrote in this book & talk a little about why clothes are very very important to this particular story (plot points! character building!).

It also happens to be the scene that explains why the woman on the front cover of the book is wearing that particular dress…

Also, the podcast has dated slightly already in that Tehani announced on Twitter today that her local bookshop has copies of P&M! They’re still in boxes, though, so technically it’s not a “sighting in the wild”. If anyone sees an actual book on an actual shelf in an actual bookshop (or better yet, purchases one!) please let me know!

CreatureCourtCast #1 – naked boys fall from the sky

  • Posted on May 18, 2010 at 7:19 pm

This is the first episode in a mini-series of podcasts I will be releasing to celebrate the June 1 release of Power and Majesty.

Episode #1 features me reading the first chapter of the book and chatting a bit about my week and how this first chapter was responsible for the book getting sold to HarperVoyager.

More episodes to follow over the next couple of weeks! If you have any requests for topics for me to talk about or parts of the book to read, leave me a comment here on this post!
