Actually, that’s kind of ridiculous—I won’t make you guess.
So, for anyone who has not been listening to me yammer on incessantly for months, it is Space Between Day!
And to celebrate, I went out this morning and signed some books at my favorite local bookstore, the Tattered Cover . (Colfax location, for anyone who’s in the area and interested in snagging a copy.)
Also, D documented the event for posterity, so here I am signing copies with a vague, slightly worried look that has nothing to do with my feelings (elated) and everything to do with my Thinking Face looking kind of similar to other people’s Oh, Is it Monday Already? Face.
See? It is proven! The Space Between has gone out into the world. And now, I am here on my couch, just smiling, smiling, smiling!
Woo hoo!! Congratulations!!
Congratulations Brenna! I hope to go out and get my copy as soon as possible! The Space Between looks like your best book yet, and the anticipation of waiting to read it was almost too much to handle. Happy Book Birthday!!!!
I feel so, so unfair and like I’m indulging in mean favoritism, but … right now, it’s my book that I like best!
Don’t worry I’m sure it will live up to your expectations:) Yay! Your reply made my day! Would you be able to do a post on advice for revising? I just finished writing my novel and am now in the dreaded editing stage….

You know, this is actually a post I’ve been thinking about for some time, because I revise really, really aggressively. Like, with a machete, so what I have to say might not work for everyone, but at least it will give hope to all the people who look at their first drafts and wonder how they can ever turn them into something salvageable. Because trust me, mine never look salvageable :D
We don’t get ours until tomorrow (and that’s assuming we can find them…Christmas is a crazy time in a large format bookstore!), but I have CLEARED MY SCHEDULE and I am TERRIBLY EXCITED.
CONGRATULATIONS, m’dear! *throws iron filings in place of confetti*
(actually…that would be kind of cool. Afterwards, you could make patterns on the floor with a magnet!)

Also, this is my Favorite <3

My publisher actually moved the release date a few months ago, but there has been Some Confusion. So, some stores had it out yesterday, and some were holding it for today. Now though, it’s out everywhere in the US!
Somehow the copy I ordered came in early and I read it over the weekend and it is MAGNIFICENT and I am so happy for you!
Oh, I’m so glad! I saw on twitter that they gave it to you early, and then I got all nervous :D
Congratulations! I can’t believe Daphne is out there, ON EARTH! :)

Fate’s a funny thing isn’t? I’m sitting here eating my lunch at work and thought I outta check on Brenna and see how things are going for her…What an awesome day to see what’s new in your world!
CONGRATULATIONS! Super big new book hugs to you!
I bought The Replacement last year as a Christmas gift to myself and I’m so excited to have The Space Between for this year.
It’s hard to get really excited about the holiday unless there’s something super cool under the tree….so eeeeeeeee!
The concept sounds intriguing and the cover is gorgeous! Can’t wait!

Good instincts :D I’m glad you liked The Replacement, and I hope TSB really does it for you! (P.S. there is kissing!)
Wheeeeee!!! Welcome to the Big Wide World, Space Between! Australia Post had better hurry up b/c I am STARVING for this book. Congratulations Brenna, I’m thrilled to bits for you!!! [Hope you got my early best wishes, hugs & (virtual, sorry!) crates of Moet].
Love the pics of Ms Fabulous Author Person, yay D for capturing the moment. I love your jacket btw, the cut & different coloured panels, its very flirty dangerous highwaywoman-ish :).
Aaaand I finally received [from Fountain Books] and read The Replacement. I will try and gather some adequate words at some point other than WOW HOLY $%*@ what an incredible beautiful original thing it is. LOVE. I finished and flipped back to the front to start all over again . . .

Oh, sweet! I’m really glad to hear that you liked it—and I enjoy my jacket precisely because I feel that it somehow matches the US cover :D
Also, I am ridiculously sorry that this comment sat for a week unresponded to. I broke myself playing soccer and then forswore the internet. (not for any real reason—I was just in the mood to forswear something.) So, that is the story of that.
so happy and excited for you. i just got my copy of THE SPACE BETWEEN in the post today and im super excited to start reading! the embossing is sooooo beautiful. THE REPLACEMENT was my favourite book of last year, and im thinking THE SPACE BETWEEN will be this years!!!
thank you for being such an amazing writer! <3
Oh, thank you! I’m so glad you’re excited. I really loved writing this book, and I lovelovelove the job they did with the cover—I’m addicted to the embossing :D
