Hi, you guys! Ahahaha. I'm so on-schedule. Not really. But anyway.
1 - The Cabinet anthology is out in ONE MONTH.
2 - It recently got a starred review from Kirkus, which completely broke our brains, because Kirkus is tough, and we started the website as a fun side project to do while we were revising our books, and we set about writing our stories with nnnno expectations of getting a fancy anthology or starred reviews from Kirkus. So this is cool, and we're really grateful.
3 - Because of numbers 1 and 2, I felt like OBVIOUSLY WE SHOULD CELEBRATE.
Here's the gist from the Cabinet's back cover:
Welcome to The Cabinet of Curiosities.
No, really, come in. The Curators are delighted you are here. They invite you to turn a page, pull open a drawer, peek inside a room, slither into a nook. In fact, they insist.
Sometimes visitors to the cabinet find it rewarding to dive right into the middle. You could try that. You could flip back and forth. Start your exploration at the very end. Or the beginning.
The important thing is that you are here. Oh, do come in! The Curators guarantee you will find something . . . curious.
The Cabinet of Curiosities is a collection of eerie, mysterious, intriguing, and very short short stories presented by the cabinet's esteemed Curators, otherwise known as acclaimed authors Stefan Bachmann, Katherine Catmull, Claire Legrand, and Emma Trevayne.
Illustrations and decorations throughout by Alexander Jansson
Step inside, May 27th, 2014.
Doesn't that sound cool and vaguely sinister? I'm cannot wait to see the finished copies. I cannot wait to see Mr. Jansson's illustrations and decorations. I cannot wait to read the bonus stories from everyone, which I have not read yet. Basically, I cannot wait, hurry up, May.
I'm giving away 3 prize packs, to 3 different people, so 1 prize pack each.
Here's what's to be had:
- 1 signed hardcover of The Whatnot + 1 Teaser for The Cabinet of Curiosities
- 1 signed German edition of Die Seltsamen + 1 Teaser for The Cabinet of Curiosities
- MASSIVE PRIZE PACK consisting of 1 signed paperback of The Peculiar + 1 paperback of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand + 1 hardcover of Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times by Emma Trevayne + 1 hardcover of Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull + 1 Teaser for The Cabinet of Curiosities
(This is for anywhere in the world. There's only one Rafflecopter widget below, but it will pick three winners, and I'll email you guys, and then if it turns out you live in Antarctica and don't really want the German edition or whatever, we'll sort something out. It was just easier than doing 3 different Rafflecopters, I thought.)

Also, you can get a bunch of extra entries by following the Cabinet's twitter feed, which would be a cool thing for you to do anyway because we have some fun stuff planned for the near future. And you also get extra entries for following Claire or Katherine or Emma on Twitter, and they're all lovely and funny and write awesome books, so if you have twitter and aren't already following them, how is THIS POSSIBLE?
Hope everyone's having a good Spring! Bye! :)
