Depths of Madness
All Information Hitherto and Wherefore Depths of Madness!
I’m going to link to this thread from my main blog — click on “Depths of Madness” at left, and it takes you to this post. Nifty, eh?
I am maintaining this post for any and all Depths of Madness information. I am here to answer questions about the novel, talk about signings/e-signings, and listen to any and all feedback you might care to offer. Please don’t hesitate to tell me how you felt about the novel — I love hearing what worked and what didn’t, and believe you me it all goes into my noggin for writing the next book, I’ll tell you.
Wizards has kindly posted up a sample chapter of Depths (the prologue) at the following link: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/frnovel/959727400
Also, they have posted up “That Time of the Tenday,” which is a supplement/companion piece to the novel: http://ww2.wizards.com/Books/Wizards/?doc=fr_depthsofmadnessstory
(Note: This story can be read before, during, or after Depths without any troubles. You’ll just understand it differently, based on what you know (or don’t, if you haven’t read) from the novel.
There is also a set of Depths of Madness wallpaper on Wizards, which is just snazzy: http://ww2.wizards.com/Books/Wizards/?doc=fr_depthsofmadnesswp
This is music I favor listening to when writing about Twilight/music that makes me think about Twilight.
There are two playlists — the original and the update — both of which are discussed in entries on this here blog.
On that note, some folks have been asking me if the Fox-at-Twilight (the heroine of [i]Depths of Madness[/i]) will be reappearing in any future tale (assuming she survives the book). I can’t say definitively, and even if/when I am contracted to write such a book, it will likely be some time before I can talk about it.
If you like this character and want to hear more about her story (or about those of any of my other characters, for that matter), and would like to help me make it happen (all for free, by the way), let me know. Be vocal. Write reviews on Amazon. Tell your friends. Recommend my books. Come to my signings. Go on sites like Candlekeep (which is an excellent Realms resource, by the way — see the link at left) and mention it there.
Here is a post about the concept of e-signing: buying a signed/personalized copy direct from me:
Basically, let me know that you’re interested (my email’s listed on my User Info page), and we’ll figure out probable shipping costs.
I would be happy to answer any and all questions about the book (e.g., Why did Davoren do that? What color are Slip’s eyes? Can I have Twilight’s phone number?), but I would appreciate it if:
1) Anything that gives away the plot or some revelation is marked with the word “SPOILER” in the subject heading (so people know to look away if they haven’t read it.
2) If it’s a particular scene we’re talking about, a page reference would be excellent. Pretty sure there’s only one version out there, so the page numbers will be consistent.
Finally, thank you for picking up my book, and I hope you enjoy!
