Apologies for not yet getting my London pics online; between Launch Week and life stuff I haven’t had time to edit and optimize. I’m not much of a picture taker, to be honest, and I tend to not do much with photos when I do take them. The visual fascinates me far less than the textual or auditory, for whatever reason. But I have two visual treats to share nevertheless:
First, when I was in London, I did a signing of The Broken Kingdoms at the Forbidden Planet bookstore there, which is kind of like the sexily accented big brother of the Forbidden Planet in New York. And an extra treat — I got to sign with Karen Miller! Karen and I have been buds since the Romantic Times Booklovers’ Convention, so it was great to see her again. And the Orbit UK folks were on hand to ask us both a few questions:
I’m stunned at how coherent and sensible I sound in this. The Orbit UK folks are master editors, clearly. I remember babbling a lot more.
Also, got this today from another Aussie writer, Justine Larbalestier, who spotted a familiar French-flavored cover getting the “tower o’ books” treatment (among lovely company) at the Utopiales Festival. So enjoy this reminder, Francophone fans, that Les Cent Mille Royaumes is now available!
BTW, courtesy of my French publisher, here’s sample chapters in PDF format to get you started.
ETA: Sorry, the Orbit folks took down the old YouTube link to fix the sound. Here’s the updated one!
