Today was exhausting and productive. Exhausting because the job just always has to poke at me with a sharp stick. And then last night I had diet coke too late and it made me sleep not well. Darnit. But many words were done and I am happy about that. Some introspection that may have to be cut later, but for now . . .  And of course a shocking moment for one character. And someone nearly died.

But about that the subject line . . . I have coverflats of The Turning Tide to give away. Dunno how many. They aren’t within reach. But at least six or seven. Here’s all you have to do to win.

Between now and say . . . . next Thursday, the 21st . . .  comment in this post. All you have to do is say something about something that happens in the book. Ask a question even. This may mean spoilers! So careful if you read the comments. Or  . . . You can tell me something about what you expect or hope to see in the next book, based on what you read in The Turning Tide.

I’ll draw for the winners (if there are enough answers) on the 21st. You can comment on the ljay or on the website (not both please).

Also, if you’ve read the book and want to post reviews on BN or Amazon or your blog or what have you, I’d be grateful.

And don’t forget. If you’re in the US and you want a printed map of Crosspointe, send me an email at dpf AT dianapfrancis DOT com  and put Map in the subject line and your snail mail in the body, and I will send you one. If you are not in the US, I can email you a pdf.

    I am very curious to see the final arrangement of couples with regards to the fighting, though I’m cheering for Lucy and Marten in a fight. I guess that’s what you get when your story is told first!

    I absolutely love Spark!!! I have a picture of him in my mind and almost cried when he was injured (on accident) of course! I guess it doesn’t take much for me to get attached, I mean, I don’t know a lot of people who cried over Baku… Keep going strong, I love all you have done!

    I was disappointed not to see Lucy at all, but I can understand why we didn’t. I think what surprised me the most though was that in the previous two books I found myself liking Crosspointe’s King. During this book though I was practically rooting for something bad to happen to happen to him. The man was sooo full of himself. Especially after the jail scene where he claims the foliage is a sign that he’s doing the right thing. I think you did an excellent job bringing the character to life and making him feel real.

    I love all your books, both Path & Crossepointe. I’m interested to see how Chayos takes revenge for Fairlie being ‘stolen’ from her and what happens to her two oracles. I also want to know who assassinated the King. I am amazed at what a devastating force will be created if all three books heroes & heroines band together; that’ll be an excellence battle.

    I’ve finished the Path and am on the “Turning Tide” of the Crossepointe books. I have thoroughly enjoyed both series and am hopeful that you will continue both! The worlds you have created are so lush, interesting and quite honestly, invigorating! Your lead characters are all engaging and easy to know. I am looking forward to learning more about Crossepointe and would love a pdf of the map! Thank you for creating these characters and places and sharing them with us!
