blossoms & tiny thoughts

Last week I managed to get a cold again because 2014 is apparently the year of me being ill, but I’m feeling better this week. I even managed to sit under cherry blossoms in the park. I’m still finding petals in my bag from the cherry blossom rain. The new Tori Amos album, Unrepentant Geraldines, […]

miscellany for mid-january in a short, unnumbered list

I read Stoner by John Williams over the weekend. I was gifted it over the holidays and it is exquisite. Such a lovely, lovely book. I also got this Giada cookbook for the holidays and while I haven’t tried any of the proper recipes in it yet I have become mildly obsessed with putting olive […]

going on hiatus

An announcement! Erinland is going on temporary hiatus. Not that it will be terribly noticeable, since I have pre-scheduled flax-golden tales & will possibly be posting photos from hiatusland, but I thought I’d announce it anyway.

I am delighted beyond measure that the circus is inspiring such loveliness. This post started as a random collection of things I’ve been listening […]

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.

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 […]

musical interlude

I meant to have time to put together a proper post today, but time, she is a fickle thing. Instead, have a musical interlude. This album is going to be the soundtrack of my next novel, I can tell already.

if you feel just like a tourist

I was in Boston for all of six hours last night before flying to London today. Now I am in a very cozy hotel room, unsure of what time it is and unable to blog properly but I have my nice camera with me so there should be proper photos eventually and I will tell […]
