Up this week on The First Book: Misty Massey and her debut from Tor, MAD KESTREL, a tale of magic on the high seas.
A snippet: “Dennis Wong of Tor was interested, but he wanted to see a rewrite, with another subplot woven in. I cried for about half a day, then took a deep breath and got busy.”

Running the First Book blog has been fun. Not only have I got to interact with lots of fascinating writers, in the process of searching for these writers I’m forced to keep up to date with what books publishers are putting out these days. Traffic on the site has been steadily increasing, too. That’s the great thing about the site — the interviews are permanently archived, so hopefully they’ll keep helping the authors even down the road.
