Close

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 […]

post-nanowrimo time again

I keep forgetting it is December, probably because I finished my NaNoWriMo-ness early this year. I do hope all of you who NaNo-ed enjoyed yourselves, regardless of how many words you wrote, and I hope you’re proud of yourselves because you should be. All I really wanted to do myself was add 50k to this […]

post-ocean blue dress gratitude

Last week I got to wear a blue (blue! not black!) dress and interview Neil Gaiman and talk about The Ocean at the End of the Lane and admit in front of hundreds of people that I’ve never seen Doctor Who. (I know. I’m sorry.) I had planned on doing some sort of post-event blog […]

twitter-sourced blog post the second

This is the second installment of the twitter-sourced blog post. This one is book/writing focused in two parts. (Part one is here.)   About The Night Circus I would love to know more behind the inspiration for the Night Circus and a possible sequel? Possibly bad news first: no sequel. It was never written to […]
