So, Boskone was a lovely experience. All my panels were exactly the kind of panels you want to have: everyone is engaged in the subject, talking to each other, listening to each other, and the only thing the moderator really has to do is say, “I’m afraid we’ve run out of time.”
Plus I got to actually hold up a copy of Thorn of Dentonhill instead of just a postcard, and point people in the direction of the dealer room to purchase a copy. I even signed one that someone purchased– someone who is actually a big fantasy author, so that just made my day.
However, if you hadn’t heard, Boston got a bit of snow, which had some effect on Boskone. Some people cancelled their appearances, and especially on Sunday, there wasn’t much of an audience. But the audience that was there was engaged and enjoyable. And the fact that several people weren’t getting out of Boston meant there was an extended BarCon on Sunday night, and that was quite lovely.
I’m really making the best of the fact that I’m stuck in Boston and not getting home until tomorrow. But it’s fine. Stay optimistic.
And why shouldn’t I? Here are some great reviews for Thorn of Dentonhill that showed up this weekend:
King’s River Life (who are also giving away a copy to a lucky winner)
Once I started reading, I was like a forty-pound blue catfish after a herring bait—hooked! Catch this one, folks.
If you’re looking for something fun and adventurous for your next fantasy read, look no further than The Thorn of Dentonhill, an incredible start to a new series, from an author who is clearly on his way to great things.
No reason not to look on the bright side.
