Just over a year ago, J. Scott Savage emailed the first 100 pages of FARWORLD to me. I've been a member of his critique group for about 6 years now. I've read almost everything he's written . . . but when I opened up the file I immeditately knew that J. Scott had found his ultimate niche. I love the way J. Scott writes--compelling, witty, and mixed with just the right amount of edgy fear of the unknown. So I was really excited when his Young Adult series, FARWORLD, was accepted by a publisher that has taken several fantasy books to the NY Times Bestseller list.
Now . . . we are weeks away from the ARC's being released and I can't wait to read the final version.
Even more cool, J. Scott is doing a massive blog tour called Find Your Magic and offering up to 200 bloggers free arcs from his publisher. The guidelines can be found here. TODAY is the first day you can sign up (so hurry).
September 1 2008 will be a great day, not only will it see the release of my new series, but the first volume of FARWORLD, Water Keep, will be released to the public. I feel privileged to have read the original draft and will definitely be reviewing it as soon as the ARC arrives in the mail.
