CSFF Blog Tour — DragonLight, Day 1

It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! Yes, I’m a little excited. I love CSFF Blog Tours, and I’ve been looking forward to this one for oh, so long. For the next three days we are featuring Donita Paul’s DragonLight , the final volume in the DragonKeeper Chronicles.

As I often do, I plan to give a review of the book, either Tuesday or Wednesday, but this month I’m also planning a contest: What’s Wrong with This Picture. For the prize, Donita has offered one of her famed DragonKeeper t-shirts (limited size available). It makes sense, then, for any who hope to win the prize to 1) read this heads up; and 2) to take time to study. 🙂 (Ooooh, the school teacher in me persists in showing itself from time to time!)

Here’s the heads up. The contest is simple. I will write what appears to be a normal, informative post about Ms. Paul and her books, in particular DragonLight (though not the content, since this contest is available to everyone, even those who have not yet read the book). However, I will include one inaccuracy that you must spot. The first person to email me with the correct error ( 😉 ) at the address I’ll provide will be the winner.

So now you can see why studying might help. 😀

But study what? Well, since Ms. Paul has been writing fantasy since 2004, she has given a number of interviews, one posted here (and here) at A Christian Worldview of Fiction back in 2006 during the first CSFF book blog tour. In addition, you’ll find a few interviews during this tour, too.

Of course, those of you not inclined to study might rather spend some time exploring. Donita’s Web site is full of goodies. You can learn about her other books, take a look at the related games and art work, check out her fan forum, and even participate in some fan fiction. You might also make a note of the fact that Donita participates in a regular chat.

And of course, there are also all those other CSFF participants to check in with. Enjoy!

  1. Hey Rebecca, just a reminder that I was in the original tour, too. And I have the links to prove it! 😛


  2. Yep you were, Val! I started to mark the participants from memory, and I included you. But then I decided I’d better check the list and evidently was half-asleep or half-crazed or something when I put it together, because I missed your link. It’s on all three of those posts, though. Clear as day. So sorry I botched that. Wanted to honor the charter members! 😦



  3. I don’t think I need a T-Shirt. I posted my first response. The thing that amuses (and sort of disturbs me) about this book is that suddenly dragons are cuddly. I’m not sure how they got so popular either and went from the villains to the heroes of stories in such a short period of time.

    I think I may address that issue in my next blog post.



  4. Thanks for adding my name to the list. I thought of having a contest on my blog except I don’t think anyone would participate when they found out the prize was a kitten. (Pregnant barn cats being one of the joys of rural life, along with septic tanks and drivers who don’t use turn signals because everybody knows where they are going…)

    It’s true what Terri said: all of a sudden dragons are cuddly. As are vampires and werewolves. But according to an episode of the British TV series Torchwood, you better beware of the fairies because they are really going to kill you.


  5. Thanks for hosting the DragonLight blog tour. It’s a great series. I’d say that I’m sorry to see the series end, except I read that a brand new series will take place in the Dragonkeeper world.



  6. Hey, cool idea for a contest. :-).

    For me, this series was just a lot of fun to read. Was it perfect? No. But one thing that came across to me from the pages was the fun the author had in writing the books. I also love the way her imagination works and the fact that adventures in Amara aren’t ending, just taking a new turn. (I’ve posted a link to the first chapter in the next book in one of yesterday’s posts.)

    I like the fact that dragons are cuddly. :-). Personally, I’m grappling with something more bothersome in another book I’m reading and I’m not sure how to handle it. ::sigh:: (hey Becky, it could be a potential topic for you! ha!)

    Anyhow, during the tour I’m posting/posted interviews w/ Donita, Sir Bardon, Kale and some of her minor dragons. 🙂

    I’m just glad I could carve out time from schoolwork to participate in this tour!
