The WOVEN Blog Tour and Giveaway: How To Weave A Magic System with MG Author Peggy Eddleman!

Hope you're in the mood for cookies, because our next stop is on the blog of Middle Grade author Peggy Eddleman! She's hosting our guest post on Weaving A Magic System, the steps and questions Michael and I asked while developing the magic system of Fabrication. And if you haven't checked out her Sky Jumpers series yet, you should.

WOVEN was honored by being the first review on a new fantasy review site, Fantasy Filings. And it's a great review. Check it out!

Be sure to read up on Big Shiny Robot's review of WOVEN, too!

And now, it's story time. I have a cousin in Canada with a dog named Remus (after the Harry Potter character). My cousin read through WOVEN super quick; I said she would devour it in one sitting. Little did we know that someone else would find the book rather tasty...
 That cover really IS good enough to eat!

I'm told Remus NEVER chews on anything he shouldn't, but I don't mind. Books can be replaced, and now we know dogs like it too.

Thank you for sharing this story with us, Julia! :)
