The Farworld 2008 Blog Tour

It's always a thrill to discover a new author that you like. My newest author discovery is J. Scott Savage. He has a new fantasy series coming out this fall called Farworld published by Shadow Mountain. The first four books will focus on one of the four elements: water, fire, earth, air. Book one is titled, Farworld: Water Keep.

I've enjoyed reading Scott's blog about the marketing process of this series. He's so excited and that excitement is catching. I don't even know him, but I am tickled pink for his successes as I read through his posts. As I read today's post about the cover art, it made me fidget with anticipation to see the cover (and the font), which he said he'd show us as soon as it's finished.

In this post Scott tells of his life long love of reading. Also, about how Shadow Mountain has outlined a two week tour of schools across the U.S. that he will visit. The title of his tour is Find Your Magic. The publisher does this for all its writers which include James Dasher, Brandon Mull, Orson Scott Card. In this post he also shares a little part of his book

In addition to the school tour, Scott is going to do a blog tour also titled Find Your Magic. The tour will be in July and August, just prior to the release of Farworld: Water Keep on Sep 5. If you are interested in hosting an author interview with Scott as part of this tour, you need to check out the post that tells about the blog tour and sign up. Scott is sending out free ARCs to those who are interested. All the details on how to qualify are listed on that post.

As you read through Scott's post you get a real sense that he can write and write well. He has a great sense of humor as shown in this post: What Me Worry, which tells the story of his first meeting with the publisher. Absolutely hilarious and filled to the brim with tension.

I hope you'll skip on over and give Scott a visit at his blog: Find Your Magic. You could put your name in for and ARC starting April 11. I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself.

That may be the best Farworld post I have ever read. heck maybe the best blog post ever. You don't happen to be looking into entering the PR business do you?

Thanks for the mentions and thanks for joining the tour!
