Deadline is August 1. The questions are fun. Or at least not deadly serious. And that's something we need more of right now.
"Orison is a wonderfully written fantasy novel that interweaves the perspective of three great characters: a thief named Story, a banished wizard named Wrynn, and a guard of the queen named Ashen. Each of these characters struggles to navigate the dangers of a city fraught with conspiracies of powerful people who have no qualms about using Story, Wrynn, and Ashen as disposable pawns. Orison is an engaging novel with complex characters that leave me hoping that Swensen will be writing more."
"I've been waiting for a fantasy book like this since I finished Jim Butcher's 'Codex Alera.'"
"Daniel Swensen creates a world and a city that is vivid and a cast of characters that are easy to like and understand. I stood with Story, the protagonist, on the roof tops of Calushain and we watched the mischief below as if it had been painted by Picasso."
"This book is exactly what I love about writing. I love how Swensen just gets into the world seamlessly, where I just felt it was normal. Story, the MC, is a girl that I can see pieces of myself in and is truly someone I want to root for. I loved the pace of the story and the overall development of the different story lines. Once I got past the first chapter, I was hooked and finished the book in a few days."
Please spread the word if you're so inclined! Thanks!

It's Saturday, and it's hot! Luckily, today's errands include going to Cardinal Cove to get some stuff and give some stuff, and they have a pool I may very well dunk myself into. Then again, I may just come home and dunk in the lake, because apparently using the pool today comes with a Since-You're-Here-You-Can-Help-With-The-Construction rider. >.>

I need to start organizing my Vacationland notes. I need to plan my voice recording work for the coming week. I need to do laundry.

When you go on a camping/cabin/lakeside type vacation, what sort of tchatchkes and/or memorabilia would you expect to bring home?
Jyll has the worst Potato Death Smell story of all. She had potatoes die on top of her fridge, and didn't realize until she reached up to pull the bag down and it spilled
It is my last day at Bag End, but last day is starting out excellently. There is coffee for the drinking, and James Bond for the watching. I haven't seen You Only Live Twice in a long time, but it's like stepping into an old friend.
...you know what I mean.
Movie and coffee and pancakes, and then a sad parting of ways and a bit of a drive... and then I get to meet and ! Shenanigas in the city! WOO!
Not looking forward to the driving bit, but you gotta do what you gotta do when you don't have a teleporter.
Hullo Bliss. Thank you for a wonderful whirlwind visit! Hugs to you, SALM and the Spawn Collective!
I have totally been in Vacation Mode lately, which means that without the ability to queue up posts for this project in advance, they've been a bit haphazard for the past week. I throw myself down before your door and beg forgiveness.
This... this is your door, isn't it?
