15 Days of Deverry is an online celebration of the successful conclusion of Katharine Kerr’s vision for this Celtic knot of inter-braided novels. The 15 Days stands for the 15 titles that constitute the cycle’s sequence.***

15 Days of Deverry Party Favors: Katharine Kerr will provide autographed copies of her books and a signed bookplate designed by Party Committee member, Mary Frey, as prizes in 3 different contests! (Contests’ Details and Rules follow in a separate entry.)
There is yet more! A three-way interview-discussion here on the DeepGenre site, conducted among Katharine Kerr, Kate Elliott and Sherwood Smith on what it is like to have spent a long period of one’s professional career writing in a world one has created, the roman fleuve and how a writer brings such large and long projects to a successful conclusion.
We encourage you to post about your experience reading these books in addition to your your congratulations to the author and her grand vision. You can create entries about how and when you first read one of the books, what attracted you to the series, which of the Deverry heroes ranks #1 in the Hotness Factor, the overarching themes and structure of the series — or anything else about the Deverry world and books that has affected you. We hope you all will share your own unique views of Katharine Kerr’s achievement.
We’re very excited by the successful completion of this Grand Fantasy Vision, so we’re throwing this Big Party to celebrate! All of you are special guests. Please come! Post often! Bring your friends, your dog, your cat and your dragon too!
