Default new book

Hi, folks,

I am proud to announce that in a few days TOR Books will be bringing out my new fantasy novel, AN UNEXPECTED APPRENTICE. It's the first half of an epic journey taken by a smallfolk girl named Tildi Summerbee to help retrieve a book that can control all of reality from the thief who stole it. The beautiful cover by Michael Kaluta is on my website (www.jodynye.com -- other URL is still in use, but I have this one now, too), along with a synopsis and excerpt.

Anne has read it, enjoyed it, and gave me a wonderful quote for the cover. I hope you will enjoy it, too.

All best wishes,

Yes, it is a beautiful cover. Will put it on the "to read" list.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I had completely forgotten about this until I saw the book at Hastings and snatched it - what a great surprise! A great read, too, although it was a shock to find that the second half of the story is yet to be published!

The last third or so of the book - as the quest is beginning to get more desperate - felt a little like some of Patricia Wrede's "Lyra" books. (This should be taken as a compliment, as Wrede is one of my other all-time-favorite-authors!)
