Authorial Update

While I've been slaving away on The Tainted City, some nifty things have been going on for The Whitefire Crossing, and I've been a bit remiss about spreading the news.

1) The Whitefire Crossing was nominated for the David Gemmell Morningstar award (for best fantasy debut in 2011)!  Voting is open through March 31st, and it's super easy: just click here and select your favorite novel on the list (whether that's Whitefire or one of the other excellent books nominated).

2) I'll be doing a group book signing at Who Else Books in Denver on February 11 at 3pm, along with Rob Ziegler, Robin Owens, and Alastair Mayer.  It's gonna be super fun, so if you're in Denver, come on by!

3) Whitefire's also gotten some very nice reviews this month from Nethspace, Fantasy Book Cafe, and I Will Read Books, as well as making #5 on Mihir Wanchoo of Fantasy Book Critic's Best Debuts of 2011 list.  Woo hoo!


  1. Hi, Courtney! I voted for Whitefire Crossing. :)

    I've been meaning to email you for the longest time now and tell you how much I enjoyed your book. I'll write soon with more detail on exactly why I liked it so much, but for the moment, suffice it to say that I think it was masterful in many ways. Can't wait for the next one.


  2. Hi Beth! Thanks so much for the vote - and yay, I'm delighted you liked the book! :) As for me, I'm dying to know the latest status of Knife-Giver...still in progress? done? on sub? Whichever it is, you know I eagerly await the day when I can read the rest.

  3. Still working on it (hit a big slow-down last summer, but I've picked up the pace since then) and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel at last. Off in the distance, but at least I can see it.
