Greetings, CSFFers,

Those of you who signed up for Wayne Thomas Batson’s Dream Treaders should have received your copy. Thomas Nelson did a great job getting them out to us. Still, I think it would take a little pressure off us at a time which is often busy, what with the end of school and the coming of summer. Consequently, we’ll hold the Dream Treaders tour June 2-4.

Book Offer. For our June/July tour, we’re offering Andrew Peterson’s book 4, The Wingfeather Saga, The Warden And The Wolf King. See the details below, then if you’d like a copy to review, respond with your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please) no later than Monday, 9:00 AM (Pacific time).

If you request a review copy, please remember you are committed to posting during that tour, though you must still opt in if necessary.

The Warden And The Wolf King—middle grade/young adult fantasy
Series: Wingfeather Saga (Book 4)
Hardcover
Publisher: Rabbit Room Press (July 27, 2014)

Be sure to include your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please) with your review.

Hi, All,

I trust you are all safe. With the storms and flooding back East, it’s a great concern. Still, it’s time for us to plan for the next CSFF tour. But first, an announcement.

CSFF Top Tour Blogger. Congratulations to our April tour Top Blogger Award winner Shannon McNear for her posts about Numb. If you missed her interview with John or her review, I suggest you stop by her site - http://shenandoahdawn.blogspot.com/  .

Book Offer. For our May/June tour, we’re offering Wayne Thomas Batson’s book, Dream Treaders. See the details below, then if you’d like a copy to review, respond with your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please) no later than Monday, 9:00 AM (Pacific time).

Middle grade, fantasy

Fourteen-year-old Archer Keaton discovers he has the ability to enter and explore his dreams. He is a dreamtreader, one of three selected from each generation. Their mission: to protect the waking world from the Nightmare Lord, who wreaks chaos in the Dream World. But as Archer’s dreams become more dangerous and threatening, so too does his waking life.

Rigby Thames, the new kid from England, builds a suspicious rock star-like following at Dresden High School a little too quickly. Even Archer’s best friend and confidant, Kara Windchil, seems taken in by the cool guy with the wild blond hair, which definitely rubs Archer the wrong way. Archer must face two foes in two worlds, but he cannot succeed alone. Archer sets off to find other dreamtreaders in a desperate attempt to defeat the enemy terrorizing his friends and family.

Numb-Front-Cover-Smaller-194x300Greetings All, No, we do not have a tour coming up next week.

By the way, John is available for interviews. You may contact him at john @ johnwotte.com . Not participating? You may still need to opt out. Please keep reading.

Greetings CSFF’ers,

As you may remember, last note, I asked you to consider voting in the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative fiction. You are, after all, perhaps the most qualified group to do so. Unfortunately, we ran into a glitch. After hearing from a number of people about a problem voting, we discovered that not all votes were being counted. Consequently, we’d like to encourage you to re-vote. I’m sorry for the inconvenience and time-waste the first vote turned out to be.

Here are the necessary links again: the list of nominations (you must have read at least two of these to be eligible to vote) – http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/clive-staples-award-nominations/2014-nominations/ and the voting instructions and survey – http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/csa-finalist-voting-begins-today/

If you can also pass the word along to those you know who may have voted the first time (or who should have – ;-) I’d be ever so grateful! You’re a great bunch. I appreciate your support.

Becky

Again, Happy St. Patrick’s Day, CSFF’ers.

Monday not only begins a new tour but it is the first day to vote for the finalists in the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction. Because a number of titles we have toured appear on the list, I can’t think of a more qualified group to participate in this process than you. Please take time to review the list of nominations. If you have read at least two books on the list, you are eligible to vote. Look for details at the CSA site: http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/

Tour Details. Our tour for A Draw of Kings begins tomorrow and runs through Wednesday. For those of you who received review copies of the books, please remember to include a disclaimer such as the following: In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Special thanks to those of you who post your review in multiple places. Don’t forget you can also share your review at the Speculative Faith’s library — http://www.speculativefaith.com/submit-a-novel-review .

Lastly, I appreciate the extra effort a number of you are making to visit at least five other blogs during the tour. Please keep up the community building. All CSFF members benefit in the long run, as do the authors of the books we feature.

March Tour Links. The links you’ll need this month are as follows:
*A Draw of Kings – http://www.amazon.com/Draw-Kings-Staff-Sword-Patrick/dp/0764210459/ (or some other link of your choice)
