My interview with Lytherus!

So this weekend was my birthday, and I was so busy drinking and running around and generally trying my best to slow the ever onward march of time that I didn't get a chance to post about the absolutely awesome piece online SFF magazine Lytherus did on HONOR'S KNIGHT!

First off, we have a very nice review of the book itself and, if you'll excuse me putting on my Pretentious Author Cap for a paragraph, I really like it not so much because they liked the book (though don't get me wrong, I'm over the moon that they liked it), but because they really got what I was trying to do with Devi and the multiple levels of information in the books. I can't even count how many hours I spent on this aspect of the story making sure I was keeping the reader guessing just as much as Devi about what was really going on, who her allies were, and who she should trust. Unfortunately, this is the sort of work where, if you do it right, the end result should be invisible, which makes it kind of a hard achievement to brag about. To actually read about it in a review is just amazing and I am so so so happy. Thank you, Lytherus!

There's also a chance to win a copy of HONOR'S KNIGHT for yourself at the bottom, so stop by for that at least! Free stuff!

Finally, I also did an interview with them about the Devi series and writing in general, and the questions were awesome. It's generally spoiler free, so if you're hungry for inside information about the Paradox books and what's in store for Devi, head on over!

Thank you and enjoy!

Devi's journey from a girl who knows where she's going and JUST how to get there to WTF? is fascinating -- and lots of hard work. Good to see this recognized

22 days is FAR too long to wait til book 3 ;) I can't remember when I was last this excited about a series (hint: you can date me, it's Kit Kerr's Deverry series and Julian May's Milieu Trilogy). Love the chess tie in with Ren's game btw.
