The recent unveiling of the US and UK covers for Daughter Of Blood has inspired me to spend some on-blog time with the characters from the first two books in the series—in the same way I spent time on the worldbuilding in A Geography Of Haarth.

Today I bring you many emotions courtesy of my lovely US publisher, Candlewick Press, who sent me two things last week that made my bottom lip wobble (just a tiny, tasteful amount).

Still, if you can weather the nasally overtones...Read more of this blog post »
