The Spring 2012 Magic Appreciation Tour has come to a close, and I would like to thank all of the authors who signed up. I’m pleased with the number of authors who actively participated in the author networking. We all made a few new friends and helped each other get the word out about our books.
Some of our authors are wondering, “What’s next?” Well, for now we have two months to rest up for the next tour. I’ll be doing more to separate the reader-oriented features of the site from the author tour features, and as part of that effort, all books will remain in the MA Tour book listings until you ask me to take them down. The book sale page will become more and more valuable to readers as the number of books increases.
The final wrap-up for this tour includes two new books and several author tour blog posts. I hope you enjoy them!
New Books on Tour
I’m pleased to welcome the following new books and authors to the Magic Appreciation Tour:
- Nimpentoad by Henry, Josh, and Harrison Herz
Nimpentoad is a delightful illustrated children’s fantasy story crafted by Henry Herz and his two sons Josh and Harrison. It is a tale of the courageous and resourceful little Nimpentoad, who leads his tribe of Niblings through the perilous Grunwald Forest.
- Seeking a Scribe (Enchanted Bookstore Legend, #1) by Marsha A. Moore
Seeking a Scribe is the tale of Lyra McCauley, who upon opening a magical book, finds herself confronted with a quest to save the fantasy land of Dragonspeir from destruction by the Black Dragon.
We have several new posts this week from our touring authors. I would like to thank them all for sharing their blogs and their time with their fellow fantasy authors! I really enjoy learning about our new authors and their books. Be sure to visit these blogs and follow them.
