Well, that was exhausting! Thank you everyone who hosted a Blog Tour spot, and for reviewing the book, interviewing me and George and all the other fascinating things that went on. And of course HUGE thanks to Renee at MotherDaughterBookReviews.com for organising it, and for finding the photo of Viggo Mortensen (I know how hard that was for you).
I thought I’d just do a round-up of the new reviews for The Princelings of the East. They were lovely, insightful and varied, and I thank everyone for the effort put in to read and review it by the due date. I know it’s not always easy! There’s a snippet and a link to the original blog, and they are in tour date order.

I hope that the wide range of comments will help people decide to try it for themselves.
It’s certainly been an interesting experience, especially the interviews, both mine and those of Princelings Fred and George. I hope people go on to read the rest of the trilogy, and then go on to read Hugo’s story in Traveler in Black and White – which is now out in paperback, and if you buy that you can get the ebook free (at Amazon.com).
I’d like to welcome my first reader in Italy. Thanks for joining us!
