Guest Blog and Contest: Fire by Kristin Cashore
Kristin Cashore's first novel GRACELING received various accolades and is now available in paperback. But it's companion, FIRE, won't be available until October 5th. However, you can get to know the characters now with Kristin's blog tour.
King Nash, the oldest son of Nax and Roen, is… well, he’s trying, really hard. It’s just that there’s an awful lot of chaos these days, and imminent civil war is enough to put any king off his game now and then, and, well there’s that problem wherein Fire is so mesmerizing that he turns into a romantic saphead every time he sees her… embarrassing behavior for a king, really. Maybe he should apologize. In person, with a bouquet of flowers?
Not excited yet? Then check out the awesome sample Penguin made available on scribd.

In addition, you can come back tomorrow to read my reviews of GRACELING and FIRE. But you don't have to take my word for it - I'm giving away a signed copy of FIRE to one IBWB reader with a Canadian or US mailing address. Just leave a comment saying which character from FIRE you think sounds most interesting.
There are two chances for extra entries:
Tweet about the blog tour, preferably including a link to my stop, with hash tag #firetour.

This contest is open until October 3rd. However, my Maximum Ride contest ends 9/28.
