Rah, Rah, Siscoom Bah, YAY Book Bloggers!

As I've mentioned before, I have hundreds of book blogs on my feeds list. Some of them I check as soon as I see they've been updated, others I glance at when I get the chance, still others I drop in on only once in a blue moon. The Six LDS Writers and A Frog blog is one of those blue moon ones, but I happened to read a post a few months ago in which author Jeffrey S. Savage asked for hints on how to promote his new fantasy series. Numerous people said, "Send out ARCs and let people review them on their blogs." Being the smart guy that he is, Mr. Savage is doing just that. If you're interested in participating in his Find Your Magic Farworld 2008 Blog Tour, check this out. I think it's a fabulous idea.

Just a note: I've never read anything by Jeffrey S. Savage, so he could totally suck. His books could also be really "Mormony" - I don't know. Karlene over at Inksplasher recommends him, and I'm up for reading just about anything. Really, I'm just thrilled that more and more writers are recognizing the power of book bloggers. Go Team!


  1. Hi there! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I haven't read any other of his (Savage's) books. I had them checked out from the library once, but then had to take them back before I got to them. I don't think this new book, Farworld, will be too "Mormony". It'll be a fun kid fantasy, which I love. Can't wait to read it! It's my first time doing this blogtour thing so I'm very excited.

  2. Thanks for joining the tour. I've been accused of a lot of things, but not writing too Mormony.

    Actually, my second book, Into the Fire, was pretty religious, since it was a modern day retelling of the story of Job. But my mystery series was written specifically as a clean national mystery novel. No religion at all.

    Writing for Shadow Mountain has been fun since I'm writing straight to a national audience. No religion anywhere--okay come to think of it that's not true. One of the two protagonists was found by a Greek Orthodox monk. But no Mormon religion anywhere.

    Anyway, thanks again. The ARCs should be coming out in early March.

    Great blog by the way. I like that you say what you think without trying to sugar coat anything. That gives people confidence in your reviews.

  3. Hi Scott - Thanks for dropping by. I didn't think this new series was religious, but I didn't know. Thanks for clearing things up. I'm excited to get my copy of your book.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
