Another Review of My Upcoming Book!

The Horsemen's Gambit, book ii of Blood of the Southlands, has been reviewed by Publisher's Weekly, and they loved it!

"In this intense and appealing sequel to 2007's The Sorcerer's Plague, clan rivalry continues apace. The plague-cursed baskets that Lici of the Mettai wove in revenge against the marauding Qirsi have traveled far, razing entire villages. The unsuspecting and unaffected Eandi peddlers who carried the baskets are now the focus of anger, fear and hatred. When news of the epidemic reaches the Forelands, Capt. Tirnya Onjaef decides to take advantage of the chaos and march south with a small Eandi army. Series hero Grinsa the Weaver, still a prisoner of the Fal'Borna, tries to find Lici and halt the plague, only to learn that he and his captors are susceptible to it. Coe steps up the tension and raises the stakes, leaving readers quivering in anticipation of book three."

The release date is January 20th, and I'm getting excited.  My author copies arrived yesterday.

Every time I see that cover art I say to myself: Man, I hope I'm that lucky whenever I get published to get artwork like that!

Congrats on the review!

Of course. But you're going to read the book and realize that I know very little about horses....

That's fantastic, David! Go you! Sorcerer's Plague was among the three hardbacks my dad got me for my birthday off my amazon list a couple of weeks back and now here's book 2 already!

Cool. Hope you like them both. How's your new gig been going? (The one for which I looked at the sample.)

Well done, Mr. Coe. Getting PW's sound praise is great news. Of course, when I was posting the list of upcoming books on my blog I somehow failed to include yours. (Wrist slap). For some reason I thought it came out this next summer. I will work to remedy that oversight.

Sure, the 'man' always gets first dibs on the good stuff! Do author's copies have the answers in red ink in them like teacher's versions of textbooks? LOL

(Long way for a bad joke eh?)

Jan 20? Why does that date ring a bell? I'm sure your release will be the news of ths day! ;)

Already pre-ordered and (semi) patiently awaiting my copy.... :-)

Thanks for the comments -- and the preorder! Hope you enjoy it.

Author's copies don't need any bells or whistles -- They're free!

And yeah, the date wasn't my choice. But what can I say? Talk about a day with good Karma....

Thanks David. I was in a really bad place for a while, overwhelmed and in mourning. I'm finally better, able to communicate with people again.
