A DROP OF NIGHT – Book Birthday!
*dashes onto blog* It’s here!
A Drop of Night took three very lengthy years to write, and if you read it you’ll probably be like “Uh, why did this popcorn-y book take three very lengthy years? It’s not Proust.” To which I would say:
It was just a different sort of project for me, I think. It was written and re-written and re-written again during a pretty weird time, aka the last rage-y bit of my teenage life and the beginning of college. I’m proud of the book, though. I’m glad I wrote it.
Some things! (I will update and add to this as the week progresses.)
– Buzzfeed picked A Drop of Night as one of its books to read for Spring 2016.
– On Adventures in YA Publishing I answer the question “What is your favorite thing about the book?” (They’re also running a giveaway for a hardcover.)
And here is an interview I did with them where I talk about how long the book took to write, and what my writing rituals are, and what my next book will be.
– Since I don’t think I’ll be going to the US this year unless I absolutely must, if anyone sees A Drop of Night at a bookstore and has a moment to tweet me a picture that would be amazing. 🙂
Thanks also to my dear family and friends, especially the three friends to whom this book is dedicated.
And that’s it! I have a lot of other thoughts, but they don’t really matter at this point, so OFF YOU GO Weird YA Thing, and I hope you find your crowd. And of course I hope you – dear blog readers – like it, and and leaving reviews absolutely anywhere is the best thing ever, and awesome, and thank you, too, because obviously you are the main factor in this whole book-writing shenanigan. 🙂 Thanks a ton for reading.
