Time-Travelling character makes a blog-hop stop

Greetings Jacquie P
So good of you to have me
Here, inside your blog

My name is Darby Christopher, and I write pretty lame haiku. But Jacquie Pearce, the author of Wildink, invited me here for the day, so I wanted to at least try to fit in!

The truth is that this month I’m cruising around the internet in a blog-odyessy, celebrating the launch of my new book. It’s called FACING FIRE and Jacquie has kindly made this space available so I can tell you about it.

FACING FIRE picks up the story of what happened to me after the magical summer that you may have read about in A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW. Both of these novels tell the stories of how many different people came to live in Canada. The cool bit for me is that I got to see these stories unfold in real time. Because I may not be very good at Haiku, but I have discovered that I do seem to have a talent for ….time travel.

So if that interests you at all, and you want to learn more about either of my stories, you can always have a peek at kc dyer’s website.

Or better still, maybe you’d like to win a copy? If you leave a comment on this post, Jacquie will put your name into a draw to win a signed 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 what do you say?

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

See you there.

Time for us to part
But there is no sadness, for
I’ll be Facing Fire

Thanks for having me, Jacquie!

    Thanks for stopping by, Darby! Time-travelling (or maybe just time-peeking) is one thing I’ve always wished I could do. So glad you’ve given us a window into your adventures!

    Hi, Jacquie: Yeah, time travelling would be fantastic! 🙂

    And heya Darby – I don’t know if you’re really that bad at Haiku. It’s a tough form.

    p.s. I tweeted your post.

    Well, I’m not a tweeter but I hope leaving a comment here is enough to qualify me to win a copy of one of your books. I am intrigued and would love to win one. Since there is only one other comment here so far (I am assuming that your comment doesn’t qualify you for the draw Jacquie) I guess I have a pretty good chance of winning. Of course, I guess the idea is to have many people drop by and read about your new book so I do hope that others comment too. Best of luck with the sales!

    I will check out your first book, “A Walk Through a Window” and take a look at “Facing Fire” afterwards. Congratulations with the launch of your latest book!

    Hmm time travel….It would be great to go back in time!
    I could win the lotto and look younger 🙂
    Good Luck with your new book.

    time travel has always facinated me … especially when it effects the here and now… I’m not sure I’d make a good time traveller, I think I’d like to be a time Observer with the ablilty to watch and experience but not change the timeline …

    looking forward to checking out the books…

  7. Rochelle Pearce Says:

    These books sound interesting and I like the look of the covers which I think is so important when relating to the story within. I’ll have to watch out for them if i don’t win one :>)

  8. Jacquie Says:

    Thanks to everyone for stopping by! I’m going to do the book draw on Oct 20, so if anyone new is reading this, there’s still time to add a comment and enter the contest. You may also be interested in checking out the next stop on Darby’s tour, the blog of historical fiction author CC Humphreys: http://www.cchumphreys.com/Site_3/Blog/Entries/2010/10/13_A_Guest_Blog.html

    Okay, I put everyone’s name into a hat, and got my daughter to draw a name. The winner is Joanne Kumar!

    Thanks everyone for playing. Don’t forget, there are more chances to win a copy of Darby’s new book at other stops on her blog tour.

    Nice to meet you, Darby. What a fascinating ability! If you ever want to work on your haiku, I know a little rabbit who would love to meet you. Happy travels all through time. 🙂
