Blog Tour Introduction—Donita K. Paul


As planned, the SF/Fan Blog Tour continues.

    Donita K. Paul

Officially the tour focusing on DragonKnight and its author, Donita K. Paul, opens tomorrow, but I promised you last week that we would have a sort of sneak peek today. In preparation, I visited Ms. Paul’s web site and uncovered a nugget. She will be conducting a live chat TONIGHT, at 7:00 PM MST (that’s Mountain Standard Time, for you Easterners. 😉 ) For more details, check out the DragonKeeper Chronicles web site.

We have a great group of bloggers who will be participating in the tour this round, some of whom will be starting today, as well. I encourage you to stop by and leave a comment to support the other members of the SF/Fantasy Blog Tour Group:

    And, no, I haven’t forgotten. I also promised I’d make an announcement today about a very special event that you can enjoy here after our blog tour. Jeff Gerke, fiction acquisitions editor for NavPress, has agreed to do a guest blog—all about fantasy.
