News for May 7th, 2009

Hello everyone - I'm pulling this post back from Friday to Thursday so that you can get this first piece of news in time to attend the event!

Bryan Davis says:
Don't forget about the Nightmare's Edge book launch May 7, from 8 pm to 10 pm Eastern time, 7 pm to 9 pm central time, and so on. This is an online event, so you can join us from anywhere in the world. We will have Q&A, trivia contests, and little known facts about the author. We will be conducting the launch from my author page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bryan-Davis/43833509711

And Bill McGrath says:
I've just gotten back from my European seminar tour and have posted some new videos on my YouTube page. Fantasy fans will be interested in four clips taken from my visit to the workshop of Finnish knife and sword maker Markko Vilppola. In addition to seeing some cool swords and knives, you'll hear some Finnish spoken (English translation follows). As you recall, Tolkien based one of his elvish languages on Finnish.

Update from Marcher Lord Press

From Jeff Gerke: The New Books Are A Success!
Despite the delay caused by my trip to China to adopt our little girl, the second set of Marcher Lord Press titles successfully released in April.
The trip and preparation for it caused me to lose about six weeks that I would've been using to finilize the list, but we didn't have a six-week delay to the launch, as we had been expecting. By the grace of God, the books were actually shipping on April 15.
These new novels continue to receive great reviews. And, as a surprise bonus, they became available on Amazon only days after being released officially on the Marcher Lord Press site.
MLP Season 2 CoversSo if you're waiting for that free shipping or you live outside the Continental U.S., now's the time to take advantage of their availability through Amazon.
The books are also available in Kindle versions through Amazon! Thanks to MLP novelist Jill Williamson for making that happen.
If you haven't ordered your copies of all three new MLP titles yet...what are you waiting for? LOL. I hope you'll avail yourself of these new novels from the premier publisher of Christian speculative fiction.
And if you've loved By Darkness Hid by the aforementioned Jill Williamson, you'll want to catch her interview over at WhereTheMapEnds.
By the way, the MLP store site does have a place to write reviews. I'd love to see your comments on these books--both at the MLP store site and at Amazon and elsewhere.
Buying MLP novels and promoting them where you can--it's one way you can advance the cause of Christian speculative fiction. Thank you for what you do.
