Today is the first official day of Kristin Cashore's blog tour for Fire, her latest novel which comes out October 5th, and is a companion (which means related to, but is basically a standalone) to her very popular book Graceling! The tour is running for three weeks, from September 14th through October 2nd, and at each stop, Kristin will reveal a little bit about each character (click on the image above for the tour schedule so you can follow Kristin around).
About today's first (and very integral) character, Kristin says:
"Lord Archer, Fire's friend from childhood, takes his nickname from his skill with a bow, but he has other areas of expertise, as well, that make him rather popular with the ladies. How does Archer get away with creating such beautiful messes? And what happens when he creates one he can't undo?"
