My sister in law (henceforth to be referred to as Carol) recently went to a stop on the Fierce Reads Tour held in Columbus OH. Four authors attended. The evening started with a panel discussion, questions from the audience and ended with a book signing. The questions from the audience were interesting. Questions included topics like: do you write exclusively on computer or prefer paper?, who is your favorite character to write?, which character is the hardest to write?, do you have the entire story planned out in advance or work on the fly and see where the story takes you? and do you work from an outline?. The author I went to see was: Leigh Bardugo. She is the author of Shadow and Bone. Wonderful book with great characters and great story. It will be a trilogy. The sequel (Siege and Storm) comes out June 4, 2013 with the last book (Ruin and Rising) due 2014. This series is not a mindless read. Leigh (pronounced Lee) is a graduate of Yale. Definitely a 5 out of 5 raven choice.
