Harry Connolly, author of Child of Fire, will be coming in to chat later this month on Sept. 29th. Interviewing Harry will be none other than our very own Betsy Mitchell. This chat, though, will be a little different than previous chats that we’ve done. Here’s how: Harry and Betsy will be chatting about being a first-time author. We’re going to try to cover the in’s and out’s, lessons that Harry learned en route to writing Child of Fire, and perhaps what it’s like to watch as your publication date draws near.
Child of Fire, Harry’s debut novel, has already drawn praise, like a starred review in Publishers’ Weekly and the following quote from Jim Butcher:
“[Child of Fire] is excellent reading and has a lot of things I love in a book: a truly dark and sinister world, delicious tension and suspense, violence so gritty you’ll get something in your eye just reading it, and a gorgeously flawed protagonist. Take this one to the checkout counter. Seriously.” — Jim Butcher
