The biggest news is that SILVERBLIND comes out on October 7th! There's a reading at Powells Cedar Hills the same night at 7pm. Come if you're in town! This completes the IRONSKIN series, and though I'm sorry to wrap it up, it was also lovely and exciting to finally to tell a grown-up Dorie's story. Dorie just wants to hunt wyverns and basilisks, but when they won't hire a girl for field work, she shapeshifts to disguise herself as a boy . . . .
A few of the things people have been saying:
