Hello internet!

I am in Amsterdam. I have a crush on this city. It has canals and kittens and art and pretty, pretty architecture! I wish I had more time to spend here, and I feel I simply must return when it is slightly warmer.

I have been here courtesy of my lovely Dutch publisher, De Bezige Bij. They have my gorgeous Dutch cover all over the place:

Including on the street, which is both bizarre and delightful:

(Am not certain what the pile of dirt was about. It adds to the surreality of it all.)

Headed back to Boston tomorrow but have had a splendid time here & I believe I am done with travelling for 2011 once I’m home, so I will hopefully be able to catch up with blogging and email replies and everything else that’s been neglected during the whirlwind of the tour.

Also, I have lost all concept of time. Am hoping I’ll re-adjust once I’m in one place for a while.

I think I’m in love with your cover designer. Is it the same person for each release, or are you/your publishers somehow finding amazing local talent everywhere you go?

So glad you are enjoying the whirlwind! Am currently on disc 7 of the circus on CD. Friedrich Thiessen enjoying the circus is you, enjoying Sleep No More. Chandresh Christophe Lefevre’s two-townhouse mansion is a-la Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter. N’est-ces pas?


P.S. When I was listening to the Harry Potter series on CD (for the hundredth time or so), I noticed that Jim Dale pronounced the word “pattern” like “pattin” (when Dumbledore borrows the knitting magazine from Slughorn’s bathroom). I have now noticed that you use the word “pattern” many times in your novel, because I am listening to Jim Dale say “pattin”. A lot. Which makes me giggle. 😎

Just lovely cover! Hope you continue to enjoy your travels.

In honor of The Night Circus, I created these ceramic pieces:

A teapot and a single cup are all I have completed so far, but there will be four more cups to come.

My friends at the small bookstore in town suggested that I send you a link to the photos.

Loved the book and I look forward to reading more from you! 🙂
