Fantasy Fiction Tour is almost here!

What's the Fantasy Fiction Tour all about?

1. Four fantasy authors on the road together for nine days

2. Sixteen official appearances and many unannounced stops along the way

3. Authors selling and signing wildly imaginative fantasy novels

4. Authors and fans wearing fantasy-inspired costumes, complete with cloaks, swords, and shields

5. Contests for best costumes and door prizes for fans

6. Video recording at each event and daily blogging as the tour goes along

7. Authors speaking about their books and answering your questions

And probably a lot more fun that we haven't even thought of yet!

Here are the authors who will be at each event:

Wayne Thomas Batson - The Door Within series
Bryan Davis - Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire series
Sharon Hinck - The Sword of Lyric series (Book 1 - The Restorer)
Christopher Hopper - The White Lion Chronicles

Makes me wish I could visit the E. coast ;o)

Sounds exciting!

WayneThomasBatson said...

I have a feeling you'll see me there. lol

Pam Halter said...

Wow ~ sounds like a lot of fun!
Safe travels,
pam <><

Sharon Hinck said...

Makes me tired just reading it.

Hey, what's this about you planning to guzzle Pepsi to stay awake while you drive?

Surely you meant Coke, right???

The real thing. The "I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company" drink. The good stuff!

Clefspeare said...

Sharon, as I wrote on Becky's blog, even though I don’t like Coke, I’m rather ecumenical in that area. I will allow it and any other soft drinks in my van. But there will be no “pop” evangelism allowed. I won’t make you drink Pepsi, and you won’t make me drink Coke. No carbonated denominational strife, please.

WayneThomasBatson said...

Pepsi rules!

Though actually, I like Caffeine Free Diet Dr. Pepper the best. lol

Christopher Hopper said...

My wife saved me from pop four years ago. Now it's coffee. ;) But I try and stick to water.

Thanks for the wonderful plug for the tour!

Man...I'm not going to be able to sleep at all this week. lol


Christopher Hopper said...


Here I am thanking you for "supporting the tour," and you're on the tour!

Sorry Bryan! I've been commenting on so many peoples' blogs I forgot whose I was on!

Plus, it's way past my bedtime!


Roheryn said...

Have fun! And I'll see ya'll in NY!!!!

Me, I'm a Pepsi fan!
Although, I do like MD, 'cause as a friend claims ((a random WoT reference here)) Its Saidin! complete with taint!

I'm not the only one with a preference who doesn't want any Soda fights!!

Pais Charos said...

Man, I wish I could go with y'all! *sighs* And just 2 hours at the Richmond event won't be nearly enough, but it'll still be fun. I can't wait!!!!

*coughs*Dr. Pepper*coughs*


Mushu said...

I just received Enoch's Ghost unsigned. It was supposed to be signed. It's for a birthday present. Any suggestions? K. West

Clefspeare said...

Mushu, please contact me by e-mail, bryan@dragonsinourmidst.com so we can discuss. I received a couple of orders that specified no autograph.
