    Tempests and Slaughter Updates

    December 22, 2016 by Mk101

    Hello everyone!

    I recently did a quick scan through Tamora Pierce's official facebook page (TAMORA PIERCE, FANTASY AUTHOR) to make sure we have all the information for the new books about Numair Salmalín. There are a few changes to past updates. Tempests and Slaughter, recently titled The Gift of Power, will be published on an unknown date in 2018. It will still feature Numair Salmalín while living in Carthak. The new title was released in a facebook post made on November 10th, 2016, and the new publication year was alluded to in a post made on September 30th, 2016. It is unknown if the series title will change completely as well, as in her Nov 10th post, she referred to the new book as Arram #1.

    There are sure to be more changes in the future…

    Adding citations

    June 14, 2016 by Mk101

    How to add citations:

    Go to Source Mode. To do so, click edit on a page and in the scroll down menu with three bars, choose Source. In Source you can use HTML style for wiki.

    1. To add citation that only comes up once in article:


    Be sure to italicize the title of the book by using two separate apostrophes before and after the word (as seen in the examples). You don't need to do the publishing company for every single reference, but please do so if there are specific page numbers or if you skip to different editions with page numbers.

    Thanks! Let me know if there are questions and I will do my best to answer them!

    Hi, I'm Magewhisper, also known as Sarah.  Why I chose Neal's warhorse's name as my username I don't remember... but anyway... I've recently gone back and reread all of Tammy's Tortall books, from A:TFA to Mastiff, and then while searching through Google happened upon this wikia, which apparently I created an account for years ago and simply forgot about.  Now I'm back and thought I'd actually contribute to it, since I have just reread all the books and the stories are fresh in my mind.  I first read A:TFA when I was 11 years old, and have ready every one of Tammy's books since, and most of her short stories as well.  My copies of A:TFA and ITHOTG are held together with masking tape they've been read so many times.  Definitely well-loved b…

    Meeting Tammy IRL

    January 20, 2016 by S-Freak

    So... As a fan, I've always dreamed of meeting Tammy in real life, but have also always known that that would probably never happen. I live in Denmark, which is a small country in Europe/Scandinavia and as such never expected Tammy to visit. Of course I never even considered that I could just pay for a plane ticket and come se her somewhere else, but that's not really relevant.. :P


    What I wanted to share with you, was my experience, when it actually happened last year. Tammy visited Denmark - and she will probably never do so again - and I was lucky enough to be able to go see her. My mom (of course) said to me; "Don't get your hopes up. You've only read her books. She might not be, as you expect." But.. Yeah.. I couldn't help myself. I got…

    NEW UPDATES:

    The upcoming books about Numair Salmalín will come in a duology, like the Trickster Series. The Gift of Power, the first in the duology, will be published on a date yet to be announced. According to Tamora Pierce, it will cover Numair's years at the University of Carthak, his meeting Varice Kingsford and Ozorne Tasikhe.

    After this work is handed off to her editors, Pierce will start a new Circle Universe book, set at the University of Lightsbridge with Tris as the POV character.

  • Resurrection of War

    Hello,

    I've been a fan of Tamora Pierce's books since the late nineties, I've been looking through several articles to see if I can condense or even expand any of them. I keep all the books I have of hers next to my desk on my bookshelf so if ever I need to reference them I just reach over and flip through. If anyone needs help with coding, formatting, or even referencing help, I will gladly offer my assistance ^-^

    Also, since I do enjoy to draw, and have drawn an image for Jump’s page, I will draw things for other pages as well (mostly animals I think, I’m not that good with people). Anyway it’s a great pleasure to help expand this wikia.

    My DeviantART Page if you wish to see some of the other things I've drawn.

    Hello and Help

    February 8, 2014 by CowParade

    Hi everyone, I have two reasons for writing this blog post.

    Firstly I wanted to say hello and that I have been a huge fan of all of Tamora Pierce's Tortall books since I was a child, and I hope to continue editing andsharing on this wikia for a long time.

    Also, I wanted to ask for some help. I updated a stub article, but I can't seem to figure out how to delete the stub category on the article. If someone could help, that would be great. Thankyou!

    Standards of Linking

    December 20, 2013 by Mk101

    Linking is appropriate for when the first time a character's name appears in an article (as it has been done in the past.) This really makes the article look sharp, and not blue all over. Re-link if you go into a different section of the article, or if the article has many senction, but re-link only once per section. Don't link the name of the article to the article itself. For example, don't link Rebakah Cooper to Rebakah Cooper as the reader would already be on that page, and would honestly just be confused.

    Hi Everyone,

    I, Beka of Pirate's Swoop, am a relatively newish contributor to this wiki and I just wanted to express how great this wiki is.  I am an avid Tamora Pierce fan and have read all of her books, most of the multiple times and I also own many of them, but I was not aware of the vast amount of info that Tamora has out on the internet regarding characters and future books, which this wiki makes available to anyone easily.  I hope to get into a regular schedule of editing sometime in  the near future.  Thanks so much and hi all!

    Need help for fanfiction

    December 23, 2012 by Shelby9291

    Hi I am working on a fanfic and I was hoping someone could help me. Could some explain to me what exactly Cooking and Carpenter Magic is? I have been trying to find the books online to read but I cant find them anywhere and I have o ky been able to the first series and part of the 2nd series. If anyone could give me some examples of what they can do or explain to me what all they can control would be much appreciated. Like so far I know that a person made some they did tell was a murder or something like that but I want to know what they can really do. Thank you in advance.

    New Circle Universe Book

    August 29, 2011 by Purzel

    A recent blog post on Tamora Pierce's prive livejournal seems to reveal the title of the next book in the Circle Universe. In the blog entry titled "Catching Up" Tamora Pierce mentions that she will be working on "Battle Magic". This title would fit the topic of the next book, which is to be set during a war in Yanjing and featuring Briar Moss, Evvy and Rosethorn. So "Battle Magic" seems to be at least the working title of the next book.

    I think the title would fit the book (from what we know so far) very well and it would also fit into the scheme that Tamora Pierce's books often tend to have two-word titles or one-word titles recently we've had only two exceptions to this rule (The Will of the Empress and Tortall and Other Lands: A Collectio…

    I've been busy with my studies, so unfortunately I haven't been as frequent with giving updates as news as I used to. Unfortunately I can't promise that it gets better. But I can assure you that I'm still here, looking after things and trying to fit in as much time as I can for the wiki.


    This gets me to my first point for this update: I think it would be best to have another, more active admin, so if anyone with in-depth knowledge of Tamora Pierce's books and preferably also MediaWiki/Wikia experience, would like the position and has enough time, please let me know. I have to say that I would first ask for about a month's worth of active participation in the wiki to make sure we find a competent person. The best way would be an answer to th…

    Mastiff news

    January 19, 2011 by Purzel

    On my daily check of Tamora Pierce's livejournal I was at first overjoyed by this entry, which states that the first draft of Mastiff is finished and counts 660 pages; about 100 pages more than Bloodhound. Pierce plans on finishing the rewrite by the end of March.

    The bad news of her entry's title phrase follows in the form of a surgery with rehab afterwards for which I wish her the best of luck and a quick recovery.

    New design

    December 26, 2010 by Purzel

    Thanks to Denizine the wiki has a new skin. It's more colorful than our old design and has a lovely background image with pictures of different covers of Tamora Pierce's books. If you come across anything that still needs to be tweaked, just let me or Denizine know and we'll see what we can do about it.

    By the way: a watchful editor has informed me that Mastiff is now set to be released in November 2011. This is a more definite release date than the ones known before, so I hope we'll have the book in hands by the end of next year.

    I just noticed that Tamora Pierce has made another post on her public livejournal. In it she gives some details concerning the future short story collection, Tortall and Other Lands: A Collection of Tales, which is scheduled for publication in February, 2011.

    These are the already published stories featured in this collection: Plain Magic, Testing, Time of Proving, Huntress, Mimic, Student of Ostriches, Elder Brother, The Hidden Girl and The Dragon's Tale.

    Two new stories mentioned by Tamora Pierce are Lost, featuring a Tusaine girl, and Nawat.

    Audiobook updates

    May 2, 2010 by Purzel

    The release date for the Realms of the Gods audiobook, produced by Full Cast Audio, has been pushed back again. Originally scheduled for release in 2009 it was then postponed to mid-April this year and has since been moved again. Full Cast Audio's website now lists it as being published in mid-June this year. So all that remains for us to do is wait and see if it will be released in June.

    By the way the Magic Steps audiobook, also produced by Full Cast, announced for some time now, originally listed to be released in mid-May (which I suspect was just to give some date, because it looked quite improbable) is now scheduled for release in mid-October, which seems probable but could very well be pushed back again.

    When visiting Tamora Pierce's website today I noticed that the listing of upcoming publications on the left had a new entry: A short-story collection with both already known and new content is to be published this year. Pierce had already mentioned this collection in December, when responding to the question about her progress on Mastiff, that she was at that time finishing three stories for the collection, before she would return to Mastiff.

    I certainly think that this is good news. It means something new from Tammy this year - if the release date is not pushed back, which I really hope will not occur - and shorten the waiting time for Mastiff. It'll be great to have her short stories together in one place and I certainly do look forward to n…

    Spotlight

    March 19, 2010 by Purzel

    UPDATE Some time ago I requested a spotlight for our wiki, because I was of the opinion that we met the criteria and that it would bring some attenton from other wikians to the site. Earlier today my request was approved, so that one of those three small buttons on the buttom of every wikia-page might soon say "Tamora Pierce Wiki". However, I can't tell you when exactly we'll be spotlighted. There are still some other sites in queue before us. But I've also noticed that the list was worked down quite quickly lately, so it could be anything between quite soon and in the far future. Just keep your eyes open.

    There are no Tamora Pierce related news. The Realms of the Gods is still scheduled to be released as audiobook on April 15 this year, but …

    After I gave you over a month more time to give your opinions on the proposed changed to our Manual of Style I read over it again and put my draft up as the new official Manual of Style. If any problems with it arise feel free to bring them up, either here, on the manual's talk page or in the community forums. To make it more prominent I've also added a link to our Manual of Style to the sidebar at the left. For the same reason I've added a link to the to do list.

    Happy New Year and a new skin

    December 31, 2009 by Purzel

    I wish you all a happy, prosperous new year which brings you all joy.

    For a good start I'm glad to give you some change on the wiki, namely a new skin, which is book-themed, as you might already have guessed from the new logo. The theme is naturally the newest realease, Bloodhound, but I'm already considering other book-based themes, at the moment for Melting Stones, which you will then be able to add as your custom skin, but one step at a time. I hope you like the new skin and if you have any comments on it, please let me know so I'm aware of what's good or might be improved. Please let me especially know if there are any problems like things not showing up or you not being able to see the new skin at all. If so the first thing to try wou…

    Manual of Style

    December 22, 2009 by Purzel

    I've been meaning to do this for a while now, getting not only the content pages but also all the stuff in the background up-to-date. Today I've finally come around to begin with it by rewriting the Manual of Style, because it was really outdated in its old version and not comprehensive at all. My draft can be seen here and I'd like everyone to have a look at it and share their opinions. I'd be thankful for every comment, critique, proposals for further improvement, addition of missing points or pointing out points you disagree with. I'd also appreciate someone proofreading the text, because a Manual of Style above all other articles shouldn't contain too much mistakes (if any).

    If there isn't any relevant discussion about the subject I'…

    The live chat with Tamora Pierce at readergirlz has just wound down. I've managed to get in my question about Mastiff and got it answered. It seems as though we'd still have to wait some time for the novel to come out. At the moment it's on hold because Tammy is writing some stories for a collection. She's finishing Mastiff, which seems to be nearly done, afterwards and estimates the novel to be published in early 2011 (spring or summer at the latest).

    I'll put the other information I got from the chat into the articles as soon as possible and will get ready for university now (it's four in the morning where I'm living). A transcript of the chat can be found here (I hope the link is working).

    UPDATE!!! I thought I'd give you a update on the new features implemented recently by Wikia. But before I'd like to remind you of the live chat with Tammy on readergirlz and propose that we come up with some questions to be asked. The chat is on December 16, that means next Wednesday, on 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern and in the middle of the night for Europe (so although I'd really love taking part I'm not that sure if I can make it, considering I've a test the next day, but I'll see how awake I'm next Wednesday).

    Here are some questions I've come up so far:

    • How is your progress on writing Mastiff, e.g. when can we anticipate with it being released?
    • Regarding Duke Vedris' sons: Pressuming Frantsen/Franzen are the same person, is he the oldest or yo…

So when I got home I looked him up. I found this site and learned about the upcoming book Mastiff. I like Mastiffs. Comparing Beka to a Mastiff if you think about is just right!

    I've just noticed (well, I actually read about it on Tammy's public livejournal this morning but didn't have time to post it then because I had to get to university) that Tamora Pierce will be on the readergirlz online community this month.

    This might be an opportunity to get to ask Tammy some more questions. I'll certainly try to look over there as much as I can, although this won't be often, because I have much to do before Christmas.

    I've just checked the Full Cast Website for news concerning the release of the audio version for The Realms of the Gods and they have anounced a specific release date, now. Unfortunately this release date is not this month, like they originally anounced, and not even this year. We'll have until February 15th next year to hear the last of The Immortals quartet performed by Full Cast.

    Well, more time to save the money for it, I guess.

    But there is also some tremendously good news: Magic Steps has been anounced by Full Cast. It will be released on May 15th next year (if they keep to schedule this time). I'm really happy about this, it even makes up for having to wait longer for the completion of the Immortals, because it suggests that they have fi…

I'm still unable to find an exact release date. Full Cast's website still dates it sometime in November (which could also mean that it's not going to be published until December or early next year, they don't seem to be that punctual with their releases) and Amazon doesn't list the audiobook version at all.

Her short story "A Dragon's Tale" featuring Kitten, Daine and Numair Salmalín is going to be published on November 3, 2009 in the Dragon Book, an antology of short stories about dragons. There are also other well-known authors featured in the book, e.g. Jonathan Stroud and Tad Williams.

    There's also the upcoming release of The Realms of the Gods audio book to be mentioned, which makes finally all four installments of The Immortals quartet available by Full Cast Audio. There isn't an exact release date yet, but Full Cast's website says--and this has been confirmed via mail--that the audio book is to be released in November this year.

    The new user masthead is actually not that new, because the feature has been implemented for quite a while, now. It appears above all user-related pages and gives short links and information about the user. You see the user's screenname, avatar, contributions and date of the first edit on the wiki. There are also links to the User page, Talk page, Blog and Contributions of the user. On your own page you also reach your MyHome through the Masthead.

    After I always forgot this in the past weeks I will continue giving you some news on the features implemented by Wikia. You might have already noticed the new blog posts, because they have actually already been implemented for some months now. They are a new method for communication, giving other possibilities than the user talk pages or forums. There you can publish theories, opinions or whatever else comes to your mind. Others can vote on the quality of the blog posts and comment on them, although both actions can be turned off by the author of the post in question.

    I just wanted to give you some information about the new features implemented by Wikia. As really love a system I'm going to do this chronologically, thus starting with the first new feature, which was already implemented some days ago, the new editor.

    It can be quite useful, mostly for new users of the wiki to make it easier for them to edit. They don't have to know much about the needed code. This even allows them the use of some templates. So the new editor has its advantages and I admit that it's not that bad, especially for new members.

    However, I myself don't like it very much and turned it off after some edits. It slowed the loading time of the edit window and complicated things pretty much for me. Experienced users are in most cases …
