miscellaneous post of miscellany with links

This is not an actual post, this is a list of things I wanted to tell the internet on someplace other than Twitter. I have several proper posts in-progress and at least one of them will be posted this week.   This weekend The Night Circus won the 2012 Locus Award for First Novel. I am […]

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 […]

i can’t believe this day is here.

I wish I knew how to say thank you a million ways, to everyone who has already visited the circus and to everyone about to enter its gates. To those who made this possible and those who held my hand along the way. But I don’t, so instead I offer a plain and simple Thank […]

miscellany & musings & music

Pardon me, but where did August go? Excuse me whilst I cling to this final day, in denial that the morning will bring September in all its autumnal, impending book release glory. This post is going to be all over the place, be prepared. Proper blogging keeps getting lost in the wilds of the to-do […]
