Don’t miss Kathi Appelt’s lovely Writing for the Long Haul post on the power of story.


At Cynsations I talk about research for fantasy writers:

Besides, I’d read enough descriptions of coppery-tasting blood through the years. That many writers couldn’t all be wrong … There was only one way to resolve the question. I dug through my pocket, found a particularly clean penny, and tasted it.


At Tor.com I look at the question of “what’s a faerie?”

“Flitting nature spirits or inhuman bearers of dangerous magic. These two threads run through much of contemporary faerie fiction.

Tor.com is also giving away copies of Faerie After this week.


Eve’s Fan Garden reviews Faerie After:

“Janni’s writing always leaves me sighing and wanting more, yet at the same time feeling complete and satisfied. It’s just the perfect mixture of dark and melancholy and loveliness and hope.”

At Eve’s Fan Garden you can also read a Faerie After excerpt and join me for a game of This or That.
