Visiting star… Darby!

Hey Tanya’s Readers!

My name is Darby Christopher, and I’m taking over Tanya’s blog today, since it seems she’s off digging up more burning questions…

While we’re on the subject of fire, I’m here to tell you something about myself. I don’t generally chase down the answers to burning questions as a rule, but I after the past year or so it’s become pretty apparent that I do have a talent for …time travel. This month, I’m celebrating the release of my new book, FACING FIRE, and it’s got me to thinking.

My new book picks up the story of what happened after the magical summer that you may have read about in A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW. But before I get to the walking-through-windows and slip-sliding-through-time bits…I have to face a little Fire.

Not so little, actually. So I thought since Tanya and I have burning questions in common, I could give her my most important advice about Facing Fire.

Fire is not always about the flames.

Hear that, Tanya?

I’m not going to explain it, either. I think you’ll just have to read the book. If you’re interested, you can find out more about the book at this site.

Or better still, how ’bout winning a copy as a prize? If you comment on this post, Tanya will put your name into a draw to win a free copy of the new book – FACING FIRE. And if you actually link to this post somewhere else [like in another blog, or facebook post or even a tweet] we’ll put your name in for the draw for BOTH of my books. So comment away!

By the way, if you’re into looking for prizes, check out my blog HERE at Darby Speaks. I have an AMAZING contest going with some totally fantastic prizes. If you like twitter, you can follow all the latest on the contest and the blog tour and launches @DarbySpeaks.

See you there!

And hey — does anyone smell something burning…?

    I like DYER’s site. It’s very unique. The book seems very interesting too. The clips on this site and DYER’s make me want to read more!

    This seems like an interesting medium through which young readers can explore the past through a modern perspective. I hope I win a copy!

    Sounds like an interesting story – one my kids would really like. And possibly loan to their mother. 😀
