As I have mentioned below, this site is undergoing a savvy top-to-bottom redesign that will make it more beautiful! easier to navigate! more appealingly intuitive! and more all-around-useful for fans of the Blood Guard series, as well as anyone interested in other books and other stories by Carter Roy.
So what will this site feature, you may wonder? I’m glad you asked. First and foremost will be this blog, in which I will post news about The Blood Guard and The Glass Gauntlet, as well as the to-be-revealed third book in the series. The blog will also feature notices about appearances, award nominations, and anything else remotely of interest. (For example, expect biweekly photographs of my book hauls.) Second, there is a new quiz in the works—”Which Blood Guard Character Are You?”—which will narrow down, via a process of elimination, where you fall on the spectrum of personalities in the series. Are you snarky-but-pure Greta Sustermann? Diabolically single-minded Ms. Hand? Or more of the Jack Dawkins type? Soon enough, you’ll be able to find out. Third, there were be two short stories published a few years ago, which exist outside of the world of the Blood Guard but of which I am rather fond. It seemed those should live somewhere, and so now they will live here. Fourth, I will post news of foreign publications, including the book covers, which are always fun. Fifth, expect some original Blood Guard stories—not just new self-contained short stories, but also bits left out of the books in my tireless cutting during revisions. (Fully twice as many pages were written for The Glass Gauntlet than ended up in the book. Sometimes writing a novel is discovering what needs to be left out.) Sixth … do I really need to list anything more? Suffice to say that more is coming, and that it will be eight kinds of awesome, and that you may want to check back. (Or even comment! I love to hear from you.)
