This is what a book tour looks like in ephemera. In boarding passes and train tickets and accidentally retained visitor passes. That’s not even all of it. I am in something that I could probably call Tour Recovery Mode right now. It mostly involves looking at all the stuff that has been neglected in my […]

flax-golden tales: up to interpretation

up to interpretation She doesn’t call them tests, but that’s what they are. She tests me all the time, pulling single cards out at unexpected moments and holding them out to me, impatiently waiting for my interpretations, making me think on my feet without giving me time to consult dictionaries full of meanings.

how it ends.

I am done with touring for 2011. I don’t think Thank You is enough for all the wonderful bookstores and booksellers, for all the readers (whether they’d read The Night Circus yet or not) who came to events and for everyone who organized so many festivals and signings and interviews and flights, but Thank You.

There were lattes and macchiatos and cappuccinos but nothing listed as simple coffee. Tarte tatins and cobblers and even flan but no pie. His hopes lifted when […]

some random things and a duck

I still have so much tour stuff to catch up on and dozens of photos to share but at this point I suspect it will be easier to do a recap when I’m home for a decent amount of time. I went on the shortest trip to London ever on Friday (got in Friday morning, […]

flax-golden tales: still waiting for prince charming

  still waiting for prince charming I found a princess in the woods. I was pretty sure she was dead, but she’s asleep. She looks dead, with wrong-colored clammy-slimy skin and a decaying gown, but she has a pulse. It’s faint, but it’s definitely a pulse. I know the proper thing to do in such […]

playlist

I keep meaning to post proper links to my Night Circus playlist & I keep forgetting, so this time I shall not forget and even give them their own post. The playlist is up on Spotify, here. It is also up on 8tracks, which gave me a nifty little code for embedding: You can also […]
