I am going on holiday, which always sounds more festive than “on vacation” for some reason.

It is mostly a writing holiday. I shall be hiding myself away and working on the new novel. Hopefully getting it something closer to novel-shaped or at least adding more words to my Scrivener file and doing some novel-related research as well.

I will not be checking non-personal email pretty much for the rest of the month. I am going to try to catch up a bit before I leave but I doubt I’ll get to everything. If you’ve written (or plan to write) about something important or time-sensitive please contact Jen Marshall at Random House or Inkwell Management, contact links are in the blog sidebar.

I am mostly going to be avoiding the internet but I will be posting occasional, likely pre-written blogs and flax-golden tales. I will also be limiting the tweeting but I will probably Instagram pretty things because I like Instagram and pretty things.

I haven’t taken a proper leaving home, just-for-myself holiday since… I don’t even know. At least before the book sold.

There are going to be palm trees involved. They will likely be captured via Instagram for posterity.

So, be good while I’m gone. Though keep in mind my definition of “good” is fairly flexible.

I’m from Spain! I bought The Night Circus this April because teh book was saying “buy me, buy me”
Yesterdat I saw it on my bedroom table and I thougt ” I’m going to read a bit”, but it was impossible. I coulsn’t stop, and this morning I’ve finished it. Congratulations because now is one of my favourite books and I can’t stop thinking of Celia and Marco. I love them!
I’ve decide that I couldn’t die before I’m going to a circus 🙂
Thanks for this novel because It has given me very good momnts!
