happy magic thief day!

Today (or possibly yesterday, the time zones are still screwing me up) is the release day for The Magic Thief, first novel (in a trilogy) by my pal sarah_prineas, aka SarahP, aka The-Woman-Who-Loves-Calling-Me-a-Wombat. Unlike many of our mutual friends who've also announced the good news, I have not yet read the book, in manuscript or otherwise, but based on SarahP's other writings, it is sure to be full of kickassery, and probably a dragon or three.

By all accounts, it's also a beautiful book to behold and to hold in your hands, a book-as-artefact to caress and cuddle and name George if the mood suits you.

cynleitichsmith has posted a great interview with SarahP that explains a bit about the genesis and world of the book, and makes me want to get back to work on my own novel.

And HarperCollins has set up a highly interactive microsite for The Magic Thief that is an incredible amount of fun. (I turned out to be a raven in the Embero Spell Game.)

I'm not sure when the book will be arriving in Singapore, but I'll be snagging a copy when it does.

Yay and w00t and huzzah for SarahP!
