Recommendations for Debut authors, and a bit about Portuguese food…

I’m still celebrating the debut of The Seat of Magic, touring around the country via the kindness of blogging friends. (Kinda like couch-surfing, I suppose.)

Today I’m up on the blog of my Amazing Agent and Author Extraordinaire, Lucienne Diver, where I’m talking about what I learned from my first book debut (and how I’m behaving differently the second time around.)

I’m also a guest over at the blog of fellow Novelociraptor Fran Wilde, where I talk about Portuguese food: how I researched it, how my characters defy the norms (I had my reasons), and what I liked and didn’t liked when I visited Portugal in 2012. (Hint: Tripe is never on my good list.)

And don’t forget, there are still giveaways going on at Not Yet Read and The Bibliosanctum.
