Eight Stop on Synergy Virtual Book Tour

I had a fantastic time at SciFiChick on Monday! Lots of people stopped by. Great interview, Angela, thank you so much.

Today, I’m stopping at Planetalyx Information Bureau where I’ve talked with Alyx about the themes occurring in Synergy. Alyx is a fellow SFCanada author whose novel, Indigo Springs, will soon be released by TOR Books. You can read one of her stories in Strange Horizons. Here’s a little more about Alyx:

Seventh Stop on Synergy Virtual Book Tour

Thanks for Absinthe & Cookies for hosting me. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the comment process, so I hope those of you who tried to leave a note weren’t too frustrated.

Today, I’m stopping on SciFiChick, who has a nifty blog and talks about, you might have guessed it from the blog name, science-fiction. There are comments about TV shows, book reviews, and commentary. Here’s a bit more about Angela:

SciFi Chick

SciFi fan, portrait artist, avid reader of all genres.

Angela has a fulltime desk job for a Fortune 500 company. And occasionally, she does drawings of buildings/homes and portraits on commission. She reads every chance she gets. And she’s always up for getting books and ARCs from authors and publishers in order to review them on her blog. (Thanks to all that have!)

Portrait drawings usually take her about five or more hours to complete, depending on the level of detail/extras. She’s currently open to producing drawings from pictures on commission. Feel free to contact her for details.

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.
