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.
