This is the UK cover for THE STARLESS SEA from Harvill Secker, designed by the incomparable Suzanne Dean. I am so delighted to finally be able to share it, I’ve had the full wrap-around version set as my wallpaper since the moment I received it. My darling UK publishers also put together a list of […]

Dusting off the blog to show off Doubleday‘s beautiful cover for the US edition of THE STARLESS SEA. Art by Dan Funderburgh, design by John Fontana. Many more things to follow, more covers, more keys. Will post here & elsewhere when they’re shareable. In the meantime I’ve added a page for THE STARLESS SEA over […]

2018

This year felt like it was a million years long. This was the year I finally finished The Starless Sea, or very nearly finished since I’m about to hand in reviewed copyedits (note to publishers: January 2nd due dates are mean) and I’ll have one more final pass sometime after that and then it will […]

the starless sea

Hello website that has been languishing away and gathering dust, it’s been awhile. I even managed to miss the 10 year anniversary of the blog back in the summer but I was busy turning 40 and trying to finish writing this book. It’s finished, by the way. It’s called The Starless Sea. It will be […]

2017

Oh, 2017. You were a year. I’m not even sure where 2017 went. It seems like it was just snowing and now it’s snowing again. Perpetual winter though I’m pretty sure there was a summer in between. The still-new house is more house-like, more us and more lived in. There are still places missing furniture […]

springtime & snow

It is officially spring and we are still buried in snow. Confused little flowers are trying to bud in the yard and the sun feels spring-like sometimes, coercing things to melt. Slowly. Adam took some photos of me mid-blizzard last week. We got two feet of snow. Most of it is still here. There are […]

This was a year. Good things first: I have a house. More than just a house I have a space that is mine and a place that is ours and I am such an introvert homebody Cancerian moon child that this brings me a good deal of joy. Also within that house I am currently […]

lovely, dark and deep

I took this photo in my yard. I have a yard now. Possibly obvious, but I no longer live in Manhattan. I left the city in a blur of cardboard boxes and craziness and I owe a great number of people goodbye cocktails that never happened and probably even more people a “by the way […]

happy bookaversary

The Night Circus was first published five years ago today. It’s been a wonderful, strange, emotional roller coaster since then and I am still so very grateful to everyone who embraced and supported the book and visited the circus. Thank you. I have been a bad blogger this year. I have been very deep in […]
