Update on Quintana of Charyn blog tour

Thanks to everyone who has signed up so far to participate in the Quintana of Charyn blog tour! The blog tour will begin November 1, and sign-ups will be closing on September 30. If you're interested, please go to the sign-up post HERE.

We know not everyone will be able to get their hands on a copy of Quintana of Charyn from Australia, so just another reminder that you don't have to read the book to join the blog tour. Your post can be about anything relating to the Lumatere Chronicles! :)

If you signed up before today, you should have received an email from us today. Didn't receive it? Please let us know as soon as possible because that email is very important! And if you have received it, please make sure you reply.

There will be another blog tour in March 2013 to coincide with the North American release. Sign-ups for that one will open later, and more details about that tour will be released probably near the end of the year.

Any questions about the blog tours can be left in the comments or sent to us via email.

Quintana of Charyn Prologue

Melina Marchetta has posted the prologue to Quintana of Charyn! The prologue is in Quintana's point of view, and you can read what Melina has to say about Quintana's perspective on GoodReads. It's pretty fascinating. The prologue is pasted below, but please keep in mind that it contains MAJOR spoilers to the ending of Froi of the Exiles. So, don't read it unless you've already read Froi!
