It’s Monday. My second novel, Spellbook of the Lost & Found, is published in the UK & Ireland on Thursday. Over the last week I’ve slipped from nervousness to mild terror to high anxiety to bright excitement & that last one’s where I’ve landed. Here we are. Spellbook hits the shelves this week.
On Friday (June 2nd) I’m launching Spellbook in Dublin. It’s in Easons O’Connell Street from 6 to 8pm, at Dept51, the YA section on the lower ground floor. (There’s a Facebook event for it & everything.) It’s free & open to all so if you’re around, do come along and say hi!
I was interviewed by Eithne Shortall for yesterday’s Sunday Times Culture section & chatted about writing routines & magic realism, tarot cards & coffee. The link is in my interviews page.
I’ll also be chatting about various & sundry things on at least one of the YALC weekend days. I can’t wait & I’m over the moon to have been asked back. Check out my events page or Twitter for updates when I have them.
I’m also setting up a crossword competition for people who have read Spellbook of the Lost and Found & who feel up to trying to crack my dad’s cryptic crossword at the end of the book. All of the details are here but you can also drop me a line if you have any questions.
Happy end of May, happy start of summer, happy Gemini season. x
