13 Aug, 2015 filed under: Robin Hobb, US, contest

Both the UK and the US editions of Fool’s Quest have now been published.
If you’re still waiting to get your copy, there are a couple of official excerpts to enjoy: io9 posted a short one and Suvudu published the first 50 pages.

Jackie Morris is doing another lovely giveaway at her blog where you could win a copy of Fool’s Quest that comes with a unique drawing by her and a signed label from Robin.

Earth & Sea Auction is auctioning off a set of stamps with Jackie’s Icefyre on them—these stamps are not available to buy anywhere. You can locate the auction through the gallery on that page.

On the 15th of August at 5PM, Robin will be at the Barnes & Noble in Olympia, Washington doing a reading, a questions and answers session and signing books.
On the 9thof September at 7 PM, she will be at Powell’s books in Beaverton, Oregon.

Robin also did a reddit Ask Me Anything a few days ago.
