Awesome Book Event! Lois McMaster Bujold!

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.

To buy Cryoburn: IndieBound | The Book Depository Powell's | Amazon
Add CryoBurn to your: Goodreads | Shelfari Library Thing | Visual Bookshelf

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.  :-)

SQUEEE! I'm so excited you recorded video! Shannon and I went in Seattle and didn't record and David was so sad he didn't get to hear Ivan's book

Oh wow, you got to meet Bujold! Sounds like you had an excellent time. I really hope that when Cryoburn gets here, it also includes a CD of the all the other Vorkosigan ebooks. Although I already have copies of all the books, I just haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

I hadn't even heard of her until you, but one day I'll have to give her a try. I'm glad you got to go to her signing!
