Christian Fantasy Blog Tour: Coda


So. I was supposed to be part of this big, fun "blog tour." It was the first blog tour that BHR was involved in. You might have noticed the frenetic energy as we connected with hundreds of other sites. Or, you might have noticed how I was in Costa Rica and completely spaced that it was at the same time as the trip. Which means people were wandering by here and wondering, "What does this website have to do with Christian fantasy?"

So, let's do our best to dispel the myth that I am a disorganized and mean-spirited hack. *Ahem*

DragonKnight, the third book in Donita K. Paul's fantasy trilogy was released last week. Now is your chance to run around to the tour and read interviews with her, read reviews of the book and discussions about the place of fantasy in literature. I know many of you love fantasy novels and at least one of you (Hi, Rebecca!) writes it. So, enjoy. And, since you are all speculative fiction fans, you can just go back in time and join the tour!

As for me, what do I provide? A small and humble signpost to the mighty tour of last week. There you go, my friends. Enjoy.


  1. I dropped by every day and sniffed in disappointment.

    But I never called you a hack. Really. :)


  2. Thanks, Matt. A nice save! ;-)

    Seriously, I appreciate your willingness to help out, and I can't get away from the feeling that continuing the buzz is just as important as the initial burst.

    So here's to you and your role as continuer!


  3. Believe me, I can sense when someone is about to call me a hack. It comes from years of experience!

    And, yes, Becky, let us a raise a toast to... well, to me! ;)
