I just have to point out that one of the official sponsors for the fantasy tour has a really cool website. I don’t know any readers of fantasy who aren’t at least a leeeeetle bit interested in swords. Swords and fantasy go together like cats and cream. Or maybe cats and writers. John Cooper has all kinds of swords for sale in his war-room, from Renaissance swords to Roman swords to Japanese swords to daggers to…you name it. And if someone is poking swords at you, what do you need? Armor! Helmets! Chain-mail! And of course you can buy it right here.
This site sells an assortment of items in a vast price range. If you’re looking for a little replica to frame and hang on your wall, or a figurine dressed in authentic garb, you can find it here. If you want to spend thousands (or more) on a real sword that means business, you can find it here.
The cool thing? He’s donated a sword to each of the four authors on this tour! They’re going to be going around to various bookstores along America’s east coast–starting today–wearing fantasy costumes and honest-to-goodness swords. Think they’ll attract any attention in Manchester, Tennessee? I’m guessing so!
Here’s the gang signing books at the Retail Show. They say it was a great response!
