So yes, this has pretty much become the Nightmare Garden/Iron Codex 24-Hour Fun Channel, and for those of you who don’t come here for the book stuff, I apologize. But my release date is only four short days away, and it’s pretty crazy up in here, so I’m going to post a whole slew of Nightmare Garden stuff and hopefully there will be something for everyone!
The Iron Thorn is embroiled in its first round of combat in the 2011 YA Book Genre Battle!
Iron Thorn is holding its own against Bite Club, Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires opus, but we’re lagging a little, and much as I adore Rachel and her books, this cannot stand. We must crush the vampires, with steampunk fabulousity. You can vote for The Iron Thorn here or click the big old graphic. The battle only lasts until midnight, so every vote counts!
Other equally amazing stuff!
Remember my wonderful book trailer? Sure you do. It’s this one, with all the atmospheric lighting and smooching scenes:
I said that if I got 100 reblogs or 500 Youtube views I’d post an entirely new scene from Dean’s point of view, set circa Nightmare Garden. Well, last I checked we were at 304 views, and really, guys, don’t you want a brand new piece of writing set in the Iron Codex world? I know I can’t wait to share it with you!
Third verse, different from the first!
I’m doing a number of guest blogs in the next couple of weeks, a mini-blog tour if you will, and here’s a rough schedule of places you can find me talking about books, pie, and why Batman should trade out the Batmobile for a unicorn.
- Random Buzzers – Week of 2/13 (with an ongoing Q&A–ask me anything!)
- Indigo Teen Blog Book Boyfriends – Week of 2/13
- Suvudu – 2/14
- The Book Smugglers – 2/16 (Giveaway too!)
And more the next week, including a guest post for the Romantic Times blog!
I’ll post direct info the day of all of these, and once this release date and my strict revision deadline for Black London 5 has passed, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled broadcast.
Over and out for now!
