I'm going to cheat my way through this one...X is for Xanth, but what I want to focus on is Piers Anthony the writer, and the fact that the man is a writing powerhouse.
Did you know that in the world of Xanth, there are currently 38 published novels? Or that Mr. Anthony is currently working his way through book 39? Or--get this one--a published and highly respected author of many years is opting to self publish book 39? To me, this is a game changer. Published authors are choosing self publication over more traditional routes, and that's an exciting shift.
I'm keeping today's post short. Really, really short. (I'm on vacation!) But in the event that Xanth, or Piers Anthony, has somehow escaped your notice, go check 'em out. Or you can go with his series, Incarnations of Immortality, which is my personal favorite. I'd start with On a Pale Horse.
And since this is my last post for the A-Z challenge, congrats with a fantastic month everyone. Stay tuned for Y and Z from Sheena and MaryAnn next week.
