1) I just found out last week that The Replacement made Booklist’s Top 10 for YA Horror. Because I have a ridiculous love of all things horror, and have wanted nothing more than to be a “horror writer” since childhood, this is basically the most excellent news ever.
2) I have real, actual ARCs of The Space Between, and this week, I’ll be giving one away over on Merry Fates.
We’re having a prompt contest, and also a very important announcement about the future of the Merry Fates blog, which you can see here.
3) Also, this is semi-related to point number two, but my sample dust jackets for The Space Between came in the mail today and they’re really, really pretty—covered in embossing and a metallic effect that looks like steel or antique silver, and I can’t stop touching the filigree because it’s bumpy.
There aren’t finished copies yet, but for the sake of having a good solid visual aid, here is a hardback of The Replacement wearing a dust jacket that does not belong to it:
And the back flap:
This book is getting so real, you guys!
