paperback cover & other miscellany

Okay, I’ve seen this elsewhere on the internet so I think it’s probably safe to share here. This is the US paperback cover of The Night Circus. Trust me when I tell you it’ll be even prettier in person. (On sale July 3rd!)   And now some things in no particular order and in unnumbered […]

flax-golden tales: visualization tools for dreamtime adventures

visualization tools for dreamtime adventures I’m not that good at visualizing. I practiced constantly but I only managed to master everyday objects. Apples, pens, coffee cups.

psa part two (with bonus elephant)

Okay, my web guru did some magic things and it appears everything is back in working order complete with classic theme, hurrah!

flax-golden tales: always darjeeling

always darjeeling It’s not that good a trick, really. There are ooohs and aaahhs when I show someone who hasn’t seen it before, but only the first time. After the second time they complain that I can’t do it with anything else. Like it’s not that impressive to draw something in chalk and have it […]

my day in pictures

I have been neglecting the internet! Sorry! I’ve mostly been busy but also it decided to be properly springtime weather-wise which has been nice, though today it was supposed to be springy but the weather report lied to me and instead of springtime sunshine I got April showers with weird pockets of sun, sometimes heavy […]

flax-golden tales: an impromptu ceremony to restore the sun

an impromptu ceremony to restore the sun We were sick of the winter and we wanted to get the sun back. We yelled for it but it couldn’t hear us. We thought maybe it would be able to see us through the clouds if everything wasn’t so grey so we got a lot of paint.  […]
