Now that the dissertation is turned in, I can start doing fun things again. Today that mostly consisted of raiding bookshops and record stores, but later this month I’ll be joining some other lit freaks for Books Show Off 5 at the Waterstones on Tottenham Court Road. If you want to have some wine, hang out in a bookshop, and listen to me and a few other people talk about books and publishing in a (hopefully) entertaining way, book a ticket soon because these events sell out fast!
A little while ago a friend posted a link on my Facebook wall for a contest to stay the night of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death at Kronborg Castle–the castle most of us know as ‘Elsinore.’ And in a very strange twist of fate… I actually won. (Trust me, I’m as surprised as you are.) We kept it a secret for a while so we could sort out the particulars, but I’m Denmark-bound on the 21st! If you want, you can read more about it here.
My wonderful editor Christine Kopprasch just sent me a photo of If We Were Villains in its newest incarnation as an RBM–no cover art yet, but I am beyond excited to see this. It’s starting to look like a real book!
