One of my absolute favorite series of all time is the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner, which I discovered back in 2007. This series is the reason why I love thieves in fiction. I even gave away signed copies of the books December of 2010 because I wanted to share the love. Instead of hosting another giveaway, I thought a week-long blog event is a better way of spreading the word about the series and encouraging more readers to pick up the books. I’m delighted to announce the first ever blog event here in Chachic’s Book Nook: The Queen’s Thief Week, which will occur on January 22 to 29.
The lovely poster was designed by my good friend Chris of Ficsation, based on the cover of the Japanese edition of The Queen of Attolia. Isn’t it beautiful? I know the event is still a few weeks away but I’m announcing it early for several reasons. First, I’m really excited about it and I wanted to share the excitement with you guys! I have guests posts lined up from fellow fans of the series – a couple of bloggers and some favorite authors. The details of the posts still need to be finalized but I have a feeling they’re going to be amazing. Second, there’s enough time for everyone to reread the series before the event. Or if you haven’t read the series, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! Read the books so you can join the fun. You won’t regret it. Third, I wanted to invite so many bloggers and readers who love the series but I don’t think I can fit everyone in just one week. So here’s what I’m suggesting: if you’re interested in writing ANYTHING related to the series, please grab the poster, include it in your post and publish it anytime within the event’s duration. Send me the link and I promise to include it in round-up posts and will promote it through social networking sites. Oh and I’ll comment, of course.
Comments? Questions? Are you as excited about this as I am? Let me know what you think!
