When you dance the Dark Morris in the place of the Summer Lady, stories happen. And just like winter and summer, not all of it is good--or bad. These are lessons we learn as we grow up.
Wintersmith is the 35th book in the Discworld series, and the third in the Tiffany Aching arc. It is a story about growing up, taking responsibility for situations that are not (or not entirely) your fault, and witches. It is about what you do when no one is looking, and when everyone is looking. Most of all, it is a story about Tiffany Aching.
We are joined once again by Dr. Kat Day!
Kat Day is a PhD chemist who was once a teacher and is now a writer and editor. By day she mostly works as an editor and proofreader of scientific materials, with bits of article and book-writing thrown in. By night she… mostly does all the stuff she hasn’t managed to do during the day.
She is an assistant editor at PseudoPod and her fiction can be found at Daily Science Fiction, Cast of Wonders and PseudoPod, among others. You can follow her on Twitter at @chronicleflask, or check out her blogs, The Fiction Phial and The Chronicle Flask. She lives with her husband, two children and cat in Oxfordshire, England.

Intro Music is "The Dark Morris Song" by Steeleye Span in collaboration with Sir Terry Pratchett, and is used in the hope that they don't sue us because their music rocks--and everyone should go listen to their full Wintersmith album a few times and maybe buy a copy or two.
