So, that little box over to the right? That says I update this blog every Tuesday?
REASON 1: I'm doing line-edits for The Whatnot, which is like where I stare at a sentence for an hour, change one word, stare the sentence for another hour, put the word back, and ONWARD.
|Entitled, tantrum-throwing baboon.|
REASON 3: I don't actually have a third reason. But those other two - they keep me busy.
Whatever, hopefully I'll be back into blogging SOON, and in the meantime I have the official synopsis for The Whatnot, ahhhhh!
Possible spoilers if you haven't read The Peculiar, but come see. . .
Oh, the Sly King, the Sly King, in his towers of ash and wind.
Pikey Thomas doesn’t know how or why he can see the changeling girl. But there she is. Not in the cold, muddy London neighborhood where Pikey lives. Instead, she’s walking through the trees and snow of the enchanted Old Country or, later, racing through an opulent hall.
She’s pale and small, and she has branches growing out of her head. Her name is Henrietta Kettle.
Pikey’s vision, it turns out, is worth something. Worth something to Hettie’s brother—a brave adventurer named Bartholomew Kettle. Worth something to the nobleman who protects him. And Pikey is not above bartering—Pikey will do almost anything to escape his past; he’ll do almost anything for a life worth living.
The faeries—save for a mysterious sylph and a mischievous cobble faery or two—have been chased out of London. They’ve all gone north. The army is heading north, too. So Pikey and Bartholomew follow, collecting information, piecing together clues, searching for the doorway that will lead them to Hettie.
Does that sound intriguing? :D I hope it does. I hope you guys like this book, because I'm PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT IT.
Anyway, add it on Goodreads if you'd like to, and also go check out the newest stories over on The Cabinet of Curiosities, which is where three brilliant ladies and I write creepy stories every week, annnnd I'm done plugging things. I hope everyone is having jolly good time. Lemme know what you think of the synopsis!
