Lois McMaster Bujold
This week I attended a book signing event featuring the lovely Lois McMaster Bujold! It was wonderful to meet her and to hear more about her writing process and her upcoming projects. She is on tour promoting CryoBurn, the latest novel in her fantastic Vorkosigan series, and she also read two excerpts from the Vorkosiverse novel she is currently working on (a book about Ivan Vorpatril!). Fun! If you haven't read any of Lois's books yet, I highly recommend checking them out! CryoBurn actually provides an excellent way to jump into her Vorkosigan saga because the hardcover edition comes with a CD that contains ebook versions of ALL the previous Vorkosigan books (with the exception of Memory, which was somehow forgotten - haha!). Basically, you buy one book and get fourteen novels (and lots of extra goodies) free! It's pretty hard not to love that. If you prefer fantasy to sci-fi, you will want to check out Lois McMaster Bujold's Sharing Knife series or Chalion books.
I recorded a few videos during Lois McMaster Bujold's presentation. The first, second, and third videos are of her reading a fairly long (and humorous) excerpt from the Ivan-centric Vorkosiverse book she is currently writing, and the final video is of her reading a second (and even funnier) excerpt from the Ivan book. :-)
