First, a note. This post was actually supposed to go up last Thursday, and so is a week late. For that, my apologies to author Kim Curran and to Faye at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts who put the whole book tour together for Glaze. I haven’t been punctual about guest posts of late, and I do have quite a back log of things that need to get done. Something I’m working on correcting!
Second, having read the premise of Glaze and having followed up on all the excerpts that have been posted in various places as part of this book tour, I’m very excited about the novel. I haven’t read anything by Kim as yet, though I do have copies of her two YA novels from Strange Chemistry that I need to get through, but reading these excerpts, I’m sure that the books are gonna be great. Strange Chemistry has had a fairly good track record since their launch, as far as I’m concerned, and Kim seems to be one of their top authors and Glaze has been getting a lot of good publicity. Hopefully I will be reading it soon. In the meantime, enjoy the excerpt below.
Joining the blog today for a guest spot is one of Ragnarok Publication’s latest authors, Timothy Baker. He has written quite a few short stories previously and with his latest book Path of the Dead he is going big. Ragnarok is a new publisher, set up by my friends Tim Marquits and Joe Martin who put together the awesome Kaiju Rising anthology earlier this year and Django Wexler’s John Golden: Freelance Debugger novella, which were both fun reads. Now we have Timothy’s new story, and hopefully it is going to be just as good. As part of the promotions for Path of the Dead, Timothy put together this neat little post outlining how he put it all together and his inspiration as well. Fun read for sure, and it does get me excited for the book itself. Enjoy!
