Child of Light published last week. As if you didn’t already know, it is Terry’s new fantasy book. It is unrelated to anything he’s written in the past and I think it is pretty magical. Judine felt the same way when she read it. And when Terry’s editor Anne Groell read the book, she jumped at the chance to publish it for Del Rey.
Judine, Anne, and I were not the only ones who felt that way. When Anne finished editing it and Terry completed his edits on Child of Light, Del Rey sent the book out to several authors for blurbs. For those of you who don’t know, blurbs help market the book. Terry has always advocated for sincere blurbs; he doesn’t give out blurbs unless he truly enjoys a book. He requested that with Child of Light. I think Del Rey found a great group of writers to read Terry’s newest novel and they responded with their thoughts about the new book.
