In a conversation sparked by something I posted to Twitter yesterday (we’re @candlemarkgleam, by the way), @ChapterandVoice asked for my five “top tips” for authors who want to build their brand. Now, some of you are probably thinking, “Wait, author marketing? Brand-building? Isn’t that why we have publishers? So that authors are free to just […]
I just sent out a massive stack of ARCs for the print edition of Erekos by A.M. Tuomala at lunch today. The final book is going to be GORGEOUS, lemme tell ya. You should really pre-order it. But! It took a good bit of effort and some trial and error to get to the point […]
So…we might have mentioned once or twice this little novel coming out in the fall, Pilgrim of the Sky. Well, it’s all grown up and has its own website now! How amazing is that? I’m really looking forward to seeing what Natania posts there – worldbuilding tidbits, looks behind the scene at her writing process, […]
There’s been an awful lot of praise coming in for Broken, including this from the man known as Smarriveur: I don’t often recommend books.

The fabulous Tkoeh (@tkoeh, tkoehcreations.blogspot.com) got a wee bit excited about the mere concept of Hickey of the Beast, and went a little overboard on Hallowe’en – she actually created satanic hickeys and wore them to a party! Yeah, we’re so sending her an ARC of the book for this. Talk about a superfan…and this […]
There’s an absolutely awesome interview with Erekos author A.M. Tuomala up at Bibliognome today. You should go read it!
Reviews of Erekos are starting to come in, and this week looks to be a biggie. Bibliognome is doing a whole week of goodness, ranging from a Sentence Sneak Peek to a review to a giveaway to an interview tomorrow. Meanwhile, The Discriminating Fangirl gave the book a GREAT review, and I have to say […]
There is an absolutely phenomenal review of Erekos up over at Paperback Dolls, a book blog you should really be reading if you aren’t already. Plus, there’s an interview with A. M. Tuomala, a guest post by lil’ ol’ me, and multiple ways to win a copy of the book! Go! Read! Enjoy!
