Facing Fire and a Visit With Darby

Hey. Howareya?

The name is Darby Christopher, and one day last week, while wandering around the mystical Lake Louisa, I just happened to bump into A Novel Woman. It turns out that I like A Novel Woman. She takes great photos. I especially like her shots of Boris – he’s a cat after my own heart.

So, I’m here because A Novel Woman has very generously chosen to share her blog space with me today. It’s kind of a special day for me – the start of a celebration of my new book, FACING FIRE. This book picks up the story of what happened after the magical summer that you may have read about in A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW.

I’m pretty happy with the new story. Answers a few questions that arose in the first book. And opens a few new windows…for those who like that sort of thing.

Anyway, if you’re interested, you can find out more about the book at www.kcdyer.com And just to say thanks, A Novel Woman and me – well, we’re giving out prizes. If you comment on this post, your name goes into a draw to win a free copy of the new book – FACING FIRE. And if you actually link to this post somewhere else [like in another blog, or facebook post or even a tweet] we’ll put your name in for the draw for BOTH of my books. So comment away!

By the way, if you’re into looking for prizes, check out my blog HERE at Darby Speaks. I have an AMAZING contest starting tomorrow with some totally fantastic prizes. See you there!

And hey – A Novel Woman? Thanks for letting me crash on your cottage blog couch for the day…

Hey Darby, you're welcome. Congratulations on your new book! Loved reading about your new adventures through time. Stop by anytime.

As for you, gentle readers, leave a comment for your chance to win both books. And if you, like me, are of "a certain age" well, if you win you can always give them to your favourite youngun' aged around 9 or older, or you might want to donate them to your local school or library.

Me? I'm still a kid at heart. I love 'em. A.N.W.

And to make it easier for you, you can just answer this question in the comment section:

If you could instantly go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I love books - and Darby! Yay! :)

Debby said...

I will read them...and then donate them to our local library.

I would be back standing on the banks of the Klondike River, in the Yukon. The air so fresh, the wilderness so close...

Debby said...

And if I could go anywhere, it would be Australia. I've got these wine glasses that I'm planning on tipping with three fabulous gals there...

Once a reader of YA, always a reader of YA! But I do promise to pass the books on as well.
Hmm, where would I go... back to Scotland, Wales, or Turkey? Off to Italy or Spain? I think I'd choose a Mediterranean cruise!
I'll put a link on my blog :-)

Deborah said...

Yay, Darby! So good to see you out and about again. :)

If I could go anywhere...definitely Britain. I long to wander the marshes, drink a pint in a pub, wander in wonder around a castle...*sigh*. Definitely Britain.

Thanks Pam for sharing!

Congratulations, kc! It looks like a wonderful story.

As to where in the world I'd like to be...

I have to choose???

OK. At the moment...the Norwegian fjords. Always wanted to see the fiddly bits.

BUSH BABE said...

This would be so much fun! It would actually MAKE me stop and read something other than Twilight - that's gotta be good right?

Nice share Pam... hugs to you too!
:-)

...AND I just read Debby's second comment. I suspect ANW and Debby and I might just do that someday. Hmmmm...

BUSH BABE said...

PPS - link has been tweeted! And if I could go anywhere, it'd be Ree's ranch with Deb and Pam!

A Novel Woman said...

Oh, I like BB's answer. And Deb's answer. I think a world tour is what I really want. Who wants to break the news to my husband?

Beth is pining for the fjords:

WooHOOO!!! Lots of potential winners here -- how exciting! I'll make sure to pass on the good news to Darby.

And of course, her answer to A Novel Woman's question would be not so much where -- as WHEN...

I think I would have to say England - for a few weeks. Drive the countryside, go to antique auctions.....ahhhh.....
