Sixth Stop on Synergy Virtual Book Tour

Thanks to Robert Runté for hosting me on his blog yesterday. I got a kick out of seeing my face, which he’d cut out from my photo, appear in front of landmarks in Lethbridge, Alberta. Robert put it a lot of effort in the interview he did with me, and I’m very grateful to him. Robert split the interview in smaller posts: an Introduction, M. D. Benoit on Publishing, M. D. Benoit on Cover Art, M. D. Benoit on Authors on the Web, M. D. Benoit on Synergy, M. D. Benoit on Jack Meter Series, and M. D. Benoit on M. D. Benoit. So if you haven’t read the interviews, you can always go back.

Today, I’ll be at Absinthe & Cookies, where we’ll be discussing the themes of the book and you’ll be able to read the first chapter of Synergy.

Absinthe & Cookies is a cool, eclectic site, and one who participates to the Gathering of the Blogs, where all the blogs who gather on Tartan Day, April 6th, will have something Scottish as a post. Here’s a list of participating blogs.

Fifth Stop on Synergy Book Tour

Leicester Review of Books had a great interview posted on their blog and did an awful lot of promotion for my tour, including posting the interview at Oh My News International. Thank you especially to Ambrose Musiyawa who was my link to the blog and did all the work.

Today, I’ll be stopping at Robert Runté’s blog, I’m Not Boring You, Am I? Robert and I spent a long time chatting (he asked questions, I answered them), which will result in several installments of our conversation during the day. He’s asked some pretty tough questions, and not only about the book, but about publishing, the book tour itself, and some in-depth questions about the creative process I went through writing Synergy. I think you’ll find it quite interesting.

Here’s a bit about Robert:

Robert Runté

Robert Runté is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta. He was co-editor (with Yves Meynard) of Tesseracts 5, an anthology of Canadian science fiction and fantasy and is currently editing a university textbook on Canadian SF. He was the founding editor of Neology; New Canadian Fandom; and Communique (the SF Canada newsletter), and a former member of the editorial boards of The Monthly Monthly, On Spec Magazine, and the Tesseract Books imprint of the Books Collective. He was also a founding Board member of both NonCon and ConText SF conventions; a past president of ESFCAS; and Fan GoH at Imagine (Victoria), V-Con 9 (Vancouver) and the 52nd WorldCon (Winnipeg). He has won two Aurora Awards for his promotion of Canadian SF.

Fourth Stop on Synergy Book Tour

Thanks to Dynastic Queen Stephanie Thornton for hosting me on her blog. We had some great conversations. Today I’ll be stopping at Leicester Review of Books, where there’s an interview we did. Don’t hesitate to ask your own questions!

Leicester Review of Books

The Leicester Review of Books is run by a team of volunteers who share a passion for books. The volunteers and contributors work on a “no fee” basis with a view to promoting literacy, library usage and small press publishers.

The site aims, among other things, to offer reviews in almost every category of new books, including literary, popular fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, audiobooks, gift books, poetry and scholarly books, as well as author biographies and interviews

Leicester Review of books is more than just a review site. It’s literally a portal to everything that concerns writing, from review, author interviews, literary events to a great series of writing-related links.
