Queen's Thief aesthetic blog

Feb. 27th, 2017 | 01:27 pm
posted by: freenarnian in sounis

Prompted by this post, I have created an aesthetic blog on tumblr inspired by the world of the Queen's Thief!

Visit Of Gods & Thieves on Tumblr!

My thought process was as follows: Crossposting is a Great Idea, and I'm all for spreading the Queen's Thief love, but my tumblr is composed mostly of Random Pretty Things, and I don't really use it for anything else. BUT, Tumblr has a secondary blog feature...and the Queen's Thief series certainly has boatloads of aesthetic quality and appeal...perhaps I could run with that? So I bounced the idea off Sounis and a few of you told me to go for it. I've spent the last few days setting it up and so far it's been super fun! I hope you enjoy it!

Sidenotes:
Of Gods & Thieves may be a placeholder name until I think of something better to call it. (Suggestions welcome!) I'm still sorting out links and navigation and trying to figure out how to make tags work well. (Feedback welcome!)
This is a secondary blog and so there are certain silly limitations I'll be trying to work around. For example, I believe you can follow the blog but any following back on my part will have to be done through my primary tumblr, quothshe. Tumblr can be a little quirky like that, but I'll do my best to make it function. :) Finally, I'm linking to other QT related tumblrs and websites, so holler at me if you'd like to be included. <3

King of Legottolia entry

Well, using my very limited supply of readily available Lego

here is my entry :)

King of Legottolia
KoA, Prologue. "On the palace wall, a young guard on duty looked out over the town..."

Costis standing to attention at those crenellations he gets to think about a lot more later in the book ;)


~:~:~

Yes, I know. You've never seen anything less like an Attolian guard? This may be true, but this is a bona fide Legoland Guardsman in full uniform, purchased from the original Legoland in Billund, Denmark. He cost about 50 kroner, and used to be a keyring (that's what the knob on the top of his head is!)
So, so. I did my best. Of course, if Megan had really meant it when she said "elephant"...

;D

Read-Along to Start Tomorrow!

posted by: ninedaysaqueen in sounis

The new editions and short stories are coming out on Tuesday, we finally have a map after twenty years of waiting, and we're starting the read-along on Sunday the 26th! If you're unfamilar with the community wide re-read and discussion we're holding to celebrate the release of "Thick as Thieves," read all about it HERE.

A big be blessed in your endevors to all the volunteers who signed up to help lead discussions. Here are your leads and the reading schedule. This would not be happening without everyone volunteering thier time, so thank you very much.


Read-Along ScheduleCollapse )



FYI, these discussions will have spoilers for books 1-4 but are spoiler free for the new short stories, "Knife Dance" and "Wine Shop," and the "Thick as Thieves" arc.

Now, you don't have to stay 100% in sync with this schedule. I imagine people can either read ahead or read the section and discuss it the following week. Whatever works for you. The break weeks are there for this purpose. If anyone falls behind, you have some time to catch up. Reminders will be posted about the chats in the Conspiracy Room. Remember, you have to be a member of the community to use the chat room, however an LJ account or community membership is not needed to participate in the read-along itself.

Let me know of I need to elborate on anything for you. I hope everyone has fun. Time to crack open those books!

Hardcover editions?

Feb. 24th, 2017 | 08:44 pm
posted by: readsintrees in sounis

Has anyone heard yet whether or not the newly released covers will be available in hardcover for ALL of the books, not just the new one?

I want to buy the new covers, but I'm distressed at the thought of having the same problem I had with the LAST new covers: only able to get paperbacks of the first book, which don't match the latest book.

Any word?

Finally, a MAP!

Feb. 24th, 2017 | 06:18 pm
posted by: puppeteergirl in sounis

Today, MWT posted on her tumblr feed: "The Thief was published twenty years, four months, and 23 days ago. Twenty years, four month and *21* days ago, people started asking me for a map. The wait is almost over. My editor says she is sending it to me tomorrow and I will post it here."

Later in the day, she posted the image below. Is this the map we've been waiting for (It is not completely clear to me)? It looks AH-MAYZ-ING.


Artist: Maxime Plasse

So, the inscription on the side says (to the best of my understanding), "This map of Eddis, Attolia, and Sounis was prepared for Her Highness Gitta Kingsdaughter by her tutor, Tykus Namikus for her reference while reading the books of the Queen's Thief."

So....if this IS the official map...who is Gitta? Royalty, obviously, but from which family/country? DISCUSS.
