(What is an author collective, you ask? At the most basic, it's a way for us to gang up for joint promo efforts, which I've found are more fun not only for authors but for readers, too. Just look at the parties those of us from Night Shade have held at WorldCon the past 2 years, haha. Our other goal is to foster a community, not only among the authors participating, but fantasy readers who visit the site. When I ran the Night Bazaar blog back in 2011, one of my favorite parts was the community aspect, and I'm hoping to expand upon that here.)
|The Book Sworn|
So yeah, I'm pretty excited to see BookSworn launch at last, and hoping it'll be a success for all. And in other "cool things on the internet" news, here are 2 other posts I want to share:
- Fellow BookSworn author Mark Lawrence gives the Best Writing Advice Ever.
- Over at A Dribble of Ink, Elizabeth Bear (one of my favorite fantasy authors!) shares her take on grimdark fantasy: "I Love A Good Tragedy as Much as the Next Guy"
