So last week I saw on Facebook that Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files and all around super star writer, posted about how he loved Monster Hunter International. Today, I’m google searching my name and I find: http://www.charlaineharris.com/bb/bb_current.html Where Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Sackhouse books that HBO’s True Blood is based on, picked MHI as one of her books of the week.
Two awesome writers saying they like my stuff in two weeks. Not too shabby.
So… Let’s see, Jim Butcher had a TV show, Charlaine Harris has a TV show…. They both like MHI. I’ve sold the rights but haven’t heard anything lately… Come on MHI TV show! You know it would be awesome.
As a writer, it is pretty darn cool when you find out that writer’s who you enjoy/respect really like your work. I had a major geek out when Tracy Hickman told me he loved Hard Magic. (too late for Spellbound, but he’s blurbing Book 3: Warbound). Hard Magic is also Dan Well’s favorite of my books. The two of us were invited to the Novell Brain Share event/party last night, as special guests, where we sold and autographed a gigantic pile of books (and right after that he went home and his wife had a baby, congrats to the Wells family).
