Wayne Thomas Batson has been around this blog a time or two since the beginning of the year as well. In January the CSFF blog tour featured his The Door Within Trilogy. Wayne is a middle-school teacher; his passion for kids is evident in his novels and in the enthusiastic gang that hangs out at his blog. Not only is Wayne the married father of four and a full-time teacher AND an author, he also loves to play with computerized art. He's designed a lot of the art pieces for the Fantasy Tour and is never failing in his enthusiasm.
Wayne's fourth book, Isle of Swords releases soon. This is a pirate novel, not a fantasy. He says that when the sequel is released, he expects to go back to writing fantasy.
Some great news has come out of the show thus far. The Washington Post is planning to cover the tour! And there is a terrific article here. WooHoo!!!!
Today the International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta wraps up, and tomorrow the four authors and a couple of family members will pile into Bryan Davis' van and begin their trek north.
Happy trails! We'll be keeping an eye on The Fantasy Four blog and praying that your tour goes well.
