The bird? Oh yeah. The bird moved out. No note.
I’m just putting the new kitten in here for safekeeping. Not planning to ship him to Mumbai or nothing.
Nnnggghh… So far away…
At least there are still kittens in the world.
duquesadecambridge asked: Hey, just wanted to say thank you a million times, for Wither, I read it in less than two days. Gotta be one of my favorite books ever. Can wait until they translate Fever. You have a huge fan in Brazil, you made it into my hall of inspiration! xx
Why, thank you! <3
forgettingspring asked: Do you have it played out in your head what has happened to Rhine and Gabriel after Sever?(ps. Thank-you so much for putting all your efforts into these three marvelous books, they have brightened my style of writing and given me a purpose)
Nope. After I wrote the last paragraph, all the characters just faded off into the fog. But I think that was their way of telling me they’d be alright.
Last night I finished reading Bridget Zinn’s excellent novel Poison.
Poison is silly and funny and features both a bad-ass heroine and some excellent kissing as well as first-rate pig and dog characters. I suppose Poison is a book for kids and teens, in the Harry Potter sense, but one is never too old to live inside another world for a while, and this book really did transport me.
Poison’s author, Bridget Zinn, died in 2011 of colon cancer. She was 32. It was a huge loss for kid lit—although I didn’t know how huge until I read this excellent first (and sadly last) novel.
These days publishers depend a lot on authors to market their own work. You’ve gotta tweet and tumbl and facebook and pinterest and set up school visits and signings and attend festivals. Sadly, Bridget isn’t here to share her excellent book, but I hope it still finds the many readers it deserves. Check it out.
Which side of history are you on?
