The Map Of My Heart

So, I have a Thing To Announce!

Theo Black, fabulous artist, who did a map of Tamora Pierce’s Tortall, also drew me a map for the fictional English town of Unspoken, Sorry-in-the-Vale. It is MOST FANCY, and has things like the Hope Well, and the library, and other streets like Shadowchurch Lane which are in the second book…

And this map will be given out with Unspoken at the signing I have on Sunday at Powell’s, the lovely bookshops where Unspoken is a fall staff favourite!!! And where I will be appearing with other AWESOME LADIES.

Panel: Women in Speculative Fiction for Young Adults

Join us this afternoon for a panelist discussion between five female fantasy writers of novels for young adults. Participants include: Cindy Pon (Silver Phoenix), Mette Ivie Harrison (Tris and Izzie), Sarah Rees Brennan (Unspoken), Malinda Lo (Adaptation), Janni Lee Simner (Bones of Faerie).
Sunday, October 14th @ 2pm Powell’s Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. (800) 878-7323

Unspoken is buyabibble from the Powells website or you could come to the signing or call/email the Cedar Hills shop, to make sure your Unspoken comes with map and also a signature and whatever you’d like me to say. (I probably shouldn’t draw pictures, given my lack of artistic SKILLZ, but I will if you really want me to. ;))

I will add this: The cover of Unspoken is definitely changing for the paperback. I am sorry, as nobody loves that cover more than me, but c’est la vie, and Random House has been awesome to me so far, so I’m thinking the next cover will be lovely too. However, if you like this cover, now’s the time to get it.

In other news, I am interviewed by a very smart lady at here: Sarah Rees Brennan and Sleeping with Monsters… where I talk about ladies, and writing, and other such things. As is my way. At length. As is my way…

    I write a YA fiction with a feminist heroine and asked JJ from the Pub(lishing) Crawl if she knows a YA fiction with an “outspoken and proud” feminist heroine and she recommnded to read your novels, especially your Demon’s Lexicon triology. I see that you published a few novels, so my question is: If I want to read only one of your novels, in which one the heroine is the most outspoken about being a young feminist? Thanks and best wishes from Canada.

    Oh no! I’ve just read your book and would have rushed down the street to Powells to see you, but I’m a week too late. Which is always the way of it. Will you put the map up here at any point?
