It arrived and it's beautiful

UPDATE: It arrived and it's beautiful. Book covers are so tricky, and we ask them to do and say so much. We quibbled over this one a bit and now it's here and I love it so. Evidently, if you are tired, a stack of these books also makes an excellent chin-rest, FYI. In other news, the best freaking bookstore in Melbourne kindly put me on their list of titles to look out for in the second half of 2017. I have some excellent company on this list, including my old writing group buddy and all-around excellent lady friend, Kate O'Donnell, who is launching her debut YA novel Untidy Towns in October. I remember sitting across from Kate in one of our first classes and hanging on her every word, and being pleased as PUNCH when she read something I had written, turned to her friend next to her and said, 'I like this.' Untidy Towns is sure to be a ripper read xx
