As shared with you all last month, I am really very excited that The Gathering of the Lost (The Wall of Night, Book Two) is about to be published—27 March is the big day in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, while UK readers have to wait just a tiny bit longer, until 5 April! As of today I have begun a countdown to publication by beginning to post excerpts from the book on my own blog, something I shall continue to do through until publication day.
Obviously I’m excited about this—very excited even!—but the great news for the Supernatural Underground is that we have another author with two Gemmell Award nominations: Kim Falconer’s Journey by Night and Road to the Soul have both been nominated for the Legend Award as well. Pretty special, huh?
And you, as Supernatural Underground followers, can play a part too—should you choose to accept the mission! ;-) Because the Gemmell Awards are reader voted, if you feel you would like to support either Kim’s or my book (or another book on the list you really love) you can go to the following links and vote:
The Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Debut—vote here
The Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novel—vote here
(To vote, click in the button immediately above the book you wish to support.)
And next time I see you here on 1 April, The Gathering of the Lost will be out: w00t!
