For decades, I've wanted to visit Andelain, the beautiful rolling hills in Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. To see the dance of the wraiths on the first night of spring would be amazing...although I'd rather skip a visit with my dead, I think.

But I'd also love to live in the world I created in the Pipe Woman Chronicles, where not only have the gods made themselves manifest, but They're right there to knock heads when humans aren't nice to each other.(less)

That could turn into a pretty interesting mystery story, depending on who refuses to talk about it...and why.

Thanks for asking!(less)

This year's spoils. One more batch to go!This weekend was my annual cookie baking blitz, and I am happy to report that the Awesome Kitchen that came with the new apartment has performed every bit as spectacularly as I thought it would.

For my holiday cookie recipes, I rely mostly on old favorites, as I suspect most people do. I've been using the same recipe for Toll House chocolate-chip oatmeal... Read more of this blog post »

Lynne Cantwell Wow, thanks very much for passing it on, AC! I just left a comment on her blog. :)

A.C. Flory Hi Lynne! I was so impressed with your series trailer I sent the link to a marketing friend of mine who has been writing a series of posts on what makes a good book trailer.

Stephanie Allen Crist just posted about your trailer and I think you'll be pleased with her comments!

Very helpful! Best in Show to start it is. :)


Lynne Cantwell Oh boy...tough choice indeed. They're all different. I'm going to say that it depends on what you like.

If you enjoy urban fantasy, then read Seized. The Czech half of the story in The Maidens' War has some strong epic fantasy elements. SwanSong is more along the lines of a Robin McKinley/Patricia McKillip fairy-tale retelling.

The others are short stories. "The Seed" is probably horror, "Best in Show" is psychological horror, and "Lulie" is -- oh, I dunno, just plain ol' fantasy, I guess. So if you just want a sample of my writing, one of those would be a good place to start.

Does that help? :)

Cege Smith Ok Lynne- I know from experience that this is like being asked to pick a favorite among your own children, but which of your books would you recommend a reader start with? :)
