I am taking the entire month of August off from the internet.
What this means: no blog posts, no twitter unless important information sharing, no tumblr. I am shutting off the wifi connection on my laptop from tomorrow until Sept 1st. (I spend 90% of my computer time on the laptop.)
I will be checking my personal email periodically.
I will still be Instagramming because Instagram lives in my phone.
I hope you all have a lovely month.
On Tuesday August 5th two very cool things happen:
1. The Magician’s Land is finally released, hurrah!
2. There will be this magical event in Brooklyn. I will be there. I don’t know what I’ll be doing, that’s pretty much up to Lev. It will probably involve talking of some sort. I don’t know if there’s an official non-Lev signing for anyone but I will bring a pen and I will happily sign things if asked.
At the moment it is my only scheduled appearance this year which I am doing because Lev asked me to and because I really loved this book.
Here’s the official Morgensternian blurb:
Lev Grossman has conjured a rare creature: a trilogy that simply gets better and better as it goes along. The Magician’s Land is sumptuous and surprising yet deliciously familiar, a glass of rich red wine left out for a hungry ghost. Literary perfection for those of us who grew up testing the structural integrity of the backs of wardrobes.
Here is the author-studded crowd-sourced book trailer:
And here is an extra bonus outtake from when I recorded my section back in April. Filmed in Toronto. There are puppies. Also this is when I realized I needed to cut my hair. I miss my jacket, it’s too hot now.
