“Bone Crossed” Galley Letter and Patricia Briggs Tour Dates!

Bone Crossed”, the fourth book in Patricia Briggs’ New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson series doesn’t come out until February 3, 2009, but publicity for the novel is already starting. So included below for your reading pleasure is a galley letter from Senior Editor Anne Sowards, and Tour Dates:

Dear Reader:

Patricia Briggs is what we sometimes refer to in the industry as a “ten year overnight success”. Her first novel, Masques, came out in 1993, and for over ten years she wrote well-reviewed traditional fantasy novels. She developed a devoted, if modestly sized, following.

Then she wrote Moon Called (Ace, 2/06), the first in the Mercy Thompson series, and overnight, everyone was talking about
Patricia Briggs. Urban fantasy readers and the online community embraced Mercy Thompson, a shapeshifter and car mechanic who calls the Tri-Cities of eastern Washington home, and the third book in the series, Iron Kissed (Ace 1/08), was a #1 New York Times bestseller.

As a long-time editor, I read a lot of urban fantasy, and
Patricia Briggs is truly special. She has a gift for making me believe Mercy’s world of vampires and werewolves truly exists, and that Mercy herself really could be off fixing cars in Washington State. Now, in Bone Crossed, Patricia Briggs delivers the strongest entry in the series yet, as Mercy comes up against the local vampire queen, and has to deal with the consequences of some tough choices.

I invite you to experience for yourself the fascinating world of Mercy Thompson. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Happy reading,

Anne Sowards
