Reign & Revolution Blog Tour and Giveaway

What’s a blog tour? Reign & Revolution is appearing on blogs All Over The Internet this week. There are playlists, interviews with me (the author), excerpts, and blog posts (including one about Anglo-Welsh poetry that no one really needed).

To add to the excitement, I’m doing a giveaway! The winner will receive signed paperbacks of the whole Hive Queen Saga plus a poster of the Reign & Revolution cover art. You can enter on the blog tour stops… or at the bottom of this very post.

Check out the involved blogs, sign up to win goodies, and enjoy the tour!

Hence: the status update. Part of this comes from how very many subs I received. The rest is because this “recover…

Placeholder Names in Reign & Revolution

It was supposed to be a placeholder name. But then I decided I liked it. This happened TWICE in the writing of Reign & Revolution (The Hive Queen Saga #3). Let’s talk about this goddess I made up. Saberhawen. Here’s what I knew about her before she got a name: she’s a goddess of machines,…
