Will be released in 2011. Notice how calmly I am delivering that info?
Kingdom of Cello #1 (currently untitled...) The first in a new trilogy.
"A series set partly in a Kingdom, and partly in the real world. I want a character to walk out free and clear, I want him to be tossing a ball, a red ball, and his hat is woollen and dark grey, and he’s walking across snowy fields. Across white, white, white, white fields." -Jaclyn Moriarty
I can't wait to meet the boy who walks across the white, white, white, white fields.
You can mark it as to-read on goodreads.
Check out Jaclyn's trippy little website which features Cures For Writer's Block, and How To Write a Novel in 47 Easy Steps and some FAQ that are, frequently asked... I think her website is the best writer's website I've seen because it is so Jaclyn Moriarty and it will make you feel happy just being there.
Some of the frequently asked questions:
- Why is everything so perfect today?
- Did you notice the way that guy was looking at you?
- Shall I put another log on the fire?
- Should we be afraid?
- What's with the attitude?
The way I feel about Jaclyn's books? It's like, you just had to be there. Once you read her, you'll know what I mean.
Anyway, today, I kept thinking about Elizabeth Clarry (from feeling Sorry for Celia) and I realised just how real her characters feel.
Anyone else ever read about character that just feel real that you often find your mind wandering to them, as if thinking of an old friend and wondering how they are going?
Anyway, another new launch of her Ashbury/Brookfield High series is happening sometime, here Down Under. here's a sneak peak at her new covers... (because I can't help myself...)
Here's the new Aussie edition (not yet available) v the original on the right
And the new UK v the original UK lemon one :)
And the US cover (hope you guys get a new one too :)
Is it just me, or does anyone else get tempted to buy their favourite books again when they are re-released with shiny new covers? I keep wanting to buy the new Aussie edition of Marchetta's On the Jellicoe Road.
And, thoughts on the cover of Celia?
Or anything at all you feel compelled to share with me today?
