Starring John Olson!

The Christian Sci-fi and Fantasy blog tour has returned! This month I’m pleased to announce we’re featuring John Olson’s supernatural suspense/horror novel, Shade.

It has been my privilege to attend a couple writing conference where John Olson was present and to sit under classes he has taught. He always packed a boatload of information into his lessons, propelled by a wonderful dry sense of humor. And usually there was a story or two about his infamous Christian “vampire” novel that no publisher in the industry would touch with a sixty-foot pole: Shade. (For the full story, check out the acknowledgements page in Shade.)

Anyway, Shade has now finally made it into print and truthfully I don’t understand why it wasn’t published sooner. But more on that in my book review tomorrow.

In the meantime, check out his website for more information about him and his books or stop by some of the other tour participants:

Great picture of you and John at ACFW, Chawna (with your Genesis award, no less. How cool!) He's a good teacher, isn't he.
