Website Update: The Shannon A. Thompson, author Facebook page has surpassed 500 likes! Thank you for making my trip that much better. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.
Shannon again–for only a moment. I’m still out of town, but I wanted to introduce my next guest blogger and thank him for helping me by keeping my blog going. Sorin Suciu is the “author of the laugh-out-loud contemporary fantasy The Scriptlings, due to be conjured into reality in 2013.” Here’s a line from the description of his upcoming novel that I found completely enticing: “Caught on opposite sides of a battle for Magic, Merkin and Buggeroff are forced to question themselves and what is best for a world that is blissfully unaware of imminent danger.”
He’ll be talking about this upcoming work, starting now:
You see, to me advertising is a read-only art form – I am reasonably good at appreciating it when I see it, but I am hopelessly unimaginative when it comes to performing it. That is why, when Shannon so generously offered to host a little sales pitch for my upcoming debut novel – The Scriptlings, I had to hesitate for a moment, before even remembering to thank her for the opportunity. I shall, nevertheless, endeavour to write about The Scriptlings without repeating too much of the content already available on my author page at AEC Stellar and on Facebook/The Scriptlings.
The Scriptlings is a tongue-in-cheek contemporary fantasy, aimed at geeks and mortals alike. It is the unlikely, yet strangely charismatic lovechild you would expect if Magic and Science were to have one too many drinks during a stand-up comedy show in Vegas. I had an insanely amount of good time writing it, and I’ve been told by rather serious people that reading it can be conducive to LOL and OMG.
There you go. If you are looking for a fast-paced story played by a cast of endearing characters and a goat, or if you are a fan of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, Robert Asprin and others like them, then there is a not entirely remote chance you might enjoy The Scriptlings.
