FIVE THINGS ON A FRIDAY

Hello, dear Readers, and happy Friday! Congratulations for making it to the end of another week. Friday rather took me by surprise today - it crept up on me when I wasn't expecting it - so I'm bringing you a delightful taste of Friday randomness, which reflects my state of mind and which I hope you'll enjoy!

1) A pair of cartoons guaranteed to make any writer laugh (Warning! Adult language!)

2) A beautiful piece of artwork, which, f you're anything like me, will make you feel very inspired (this was all over the internet a couple of weeks ago, but I realised I never shared it here).

3) A sage piece of advice from US Agent Jennifer Laughran. When I see this in published books, it drives me mad.

4) Shadows on the Moon gets a mention in this great piece on fairytales in popular media, written by Liz from My Favourite Books.

5) There are less than twenty adds to go on Goodreads before Shadows on the Moon hits 500! That's a lot of people, considering it's not even out yet. In related news the casting call just went out for actors to play the male protagonist of Shadows on the Moon in a book trailer which my UK publisher Walker Books are producing. So exciting! I can't wait to see it and share it with you.

That's my Friday Five, guys! Have a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday.

P.S. RANDOM 6th Item! That's just how I roll, yo! Also, I meant to post this before but forgot! A lovely interview with me, conducted by well known commentor Alex. Check it out.

I saw that Liz had mentioned you in the article. I am so excited to be reading one of your books again. I will be starting it very soon!

I am studying in the School Of Arts in Varna. I'm in a class for drawing, so I really liked the second link ("A beautiful piece of artwork") When is the trailer of "Shadows on the Moon" coming out? I WANT TO SEE IT!

Zoë Marriott said...

Wow, Borko! That's very impressive - and I'm glad you liked the Born Like An Artist link. I really loved that one myself. I'm not sure when the Shadows trailer will be ready, although I believe they're shooting it soon. I should hopefully be able to share it with everyone before the book comes out, though.

4. Yay!!! I saw! I am so excited for Shadows... it's so great the word is being spread around! :D

5. WHOOT!!! Just you wait it will become an international bestseller. ;)

6. I SAW THAT! Loved the interview! I'm a regular follower of Alex's blog and when I heard that she was going to be doing an interview with you I was very happy... also a bit jealous! =D

Thanks, Isabel - I'm glad you liked those pieces of artwork. I've really been waiting for a chance to post them for ages!

I'm so glad you edited to add Alex's blog. I was really hoping you would! I think her blog's awesome and she deserves a few more readers. ;-) Thanks.

Zoë Marriott said...

That was actually the origina purpose of the blog, but I got so caught up in finding other links to share that I completely forgot about it. Whoops.
