SPFBO 4 Begins!

Several of the authors, myself included, are running a 99c price promo. Check it out:

 

 

Author Ann Woodley created this video. Thanks, Ann!

Participating author Andrea Domanski put together this list of the participating authors.

M. D. Presley put together a tournament bracket for the blog-off, so readers can follow along, here.  Hah, that should be fun!

The SPFBO has a Facebook page, which seems like a good place to stay up on the action.

I only learned about SPFBO in the final rounds of the last contest, so I’m really not sure how all this is going to play out.  We will experience it together.  Fingers crossed!

DoA in SPFBO 4

I’ve decided to do something fun with my book Daughter of Atlas. I hope you’ll follow along.

I’ve entered into the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off 4, a big book review tournament for, as noted, indie-published fantasy novels.  It was created by indie author Mark Lawrence.  Eight bloggers or teams of bloggers will review 300 books. Each team will choose one semi-finalist to be read and reviewed by all the blog teams.  The final winner wins, well, the title of SPFBO 4 winner, fame and hopefully fortune.

My book was assigned to Team Weatherwax, and Tome & Tankard is the actual blog that will review my book.  Wish me luck!

You can follow SPFBO 4 on Facebook if you’d like to stay apprised of the contest.

And here’s a Goodreads list of all the competing books. And a list of the books for Team Weatherwax here.

I’m very happy and excited to be a part of this, and I’d like to thank Mark Lawrence, all the bloggers, and also all the authors for taking part in this wonderful opportunity for the indie book community.

The contest will begin in August.  I’ll keep you apprised.

Women in Sci Fi and Fantasy with Desiree Rowland

So, one of the members of my writer’s workshop, Desiree Rowland, just started a new Word Press blog, wherein she will talk about her own writing, and the work of other women in the sf/fantasy field. (Hopefully me one day.)

Here it is:  https://womeninscifiandfantasy.wordpress.com/

Go and pay her a visit, with my compliments.

Dirty Magick Blog Tour Begins

So, this is cool.  Charlie Brown, my editor for the Dirty Magick: New Orleans anthology that I recently placed a story in, has organized a blog tour to celebrate the publication of the book.

The first stop is at book review blog Mythical Books,  with a guest post by editor Charlie, and excerpts from several of the stories in the anthology, including my story, “The Sacred Marriage of Etienne McCray.”

There is also a giveaway of five paperback copies (US only) and five Kindle copies of Dirty Magick: New Orleans.  You can follow me on Twitter @kmcorby in the Rafflecopter there for an extra chance to win!

I’ll follow along with the blog tour as it progresses.  I’m writing a guest post in the tour later on in the month, and I’ll link to that blog when it goes live.

This is my first blog tour ever. I’m psyched!
