BSCReview site book contest

I received this very nice email this morning, so I will share it below.

The site is a very large site with information on all sorts of media!  Be wary!  It’s very easy to spend a lot more time than you meant to when you visit.

Feel free to visit and discuss.  I think the discussion is the fun part, rather than which book ‘wins’!

Guess I never had that competitive edge!


Message body:
Good day Ms. Hobb.  Hopefully my use of ‘Ms.” won’t cause this to fly into your spam filter.  In any case, I wanted to let you know, on behalf of that your novel Dragon Keeper is one of 64 books that we selected to be voted on, starting Thursday, March 18th, in our book tournament for the best new genre release of the year 2009.

You can see the details of the tournament here:

We invite you to encourage your fans to come vote in the tournament on your Livejournal and/or MySpace page and we would be thrilled of course if you dropped by to promote your book.

The opposing book in the first round is Philip Palmer’s Red Claw and the thread where people will vote and debate the books will be here:

The first round will be the shortest, beginning the morning of 3/18 and ending around 8:00 PM EST on 3/19. The winner will then move on to the next round starting the morning of 3/20 and that round (as well as each subsequent round) will run for six days.

I wish your novel luck in the debates to come and hopefully we will see you
on the forum!

  1. Ms Hobb,

    I would very much like to email you privately (this will be the kind of email that doesn’t require a response, do not worry). Is there any way I can get your email? I can’t seem to find it online.


  2. (SPOILER WARNING – Fool’s Errand)

    Just wanted to say I will try to get on the voting site to vote for Dragon Keeper.

    I love your stories and re-read them yearly as do all my siblings and parents! My mother and I call each other every year when we read “Fools Errand” and cry when Nighteyes dies. Every time. My favorite novel of them all though is “Fool’s Fate” for the love story it truly is. Every time I read it, I ALWAYS cry, and it always makes me appreciate the people I love in my life more, just the way they are. Fitz and the Fool are together, such beautiful and powerful characters, fallible, believable and real.

    I’ve been reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy for 20 years. I’ve been a big fan of Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffery, Marion Zimmer Bradley and George RR Martin, among others, but “Fool’s Fate” has taken its position as my number one favorite book of all time. The entire set of 9 books (Assassin, Liveships and Tawny trilogies) are all amazing, but for me personally, “Fool’s Fate” is a one in a million. I will always be a fan and always buy each of your books as they are released.

    Thank you for sharing your fantastic talent with the world. You not only entertain, you teach and show with your words, true life lessons.

  3. I have just finished reading both books in the Rain Wild Chronicles (in a reading space of a week), and I LOVED them! It’s been so long since a book has kept me up late at night reading, and I just loved every word you wrote! My QUESTION, is…is there going to be a third book and if so, when?? 🙂

  4. Sarah, thanks so much for your kind words. Fitz and the Fool are two of my favorite characters to write. It’s wonderful to hear you enjoyed them as much as I did.


  5. Hi Jessica,

    A third book about the Rain Wilds is unfolding on my screen right now.

    Thanks for asking, and for your kind words on The Chronicles of the Rain Wilds.
