Time for a visit to link land, and the closing of tabs. In the offline world, it's all middle grade revision (fun!) around these environs at the moment, with a little time off to enjoy the out of doors, try to get back into yoga, and think about what's next and promoting the gods book.
Speaking of which… I know a lot of people were vacationing or off the grid at the end of last week for the holiday, so for you fancy types who get advance copies of things–reviewers/bloggers, booksellers, librarians–there are ARCs floating around of The Woken Gods as of the end of last week. You can request on Netgalley or contact Strange Chemistry about print ARCs. This is, again, not a sequel to Blackwood, but entirely different. And I am entirely nervous! (For everyone else, it's out Sept. 3, and my plottings and plannings for release and some fun things are kicking into gear accordingly. If you have an interview or event request or want to ask for a guest post or the like, let me or Angry Robot's PR doyenne know.)
I'm definitely hoping to get to New York while Leonard Marcus's "The ABC of It: Why Children's Books Matter" exhibit is running at the NYPL, but I'm grateful for all the people writing about it anyway.
