November Update

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Two new books have been wrestling each other in my brain, leaving little time for anything else. I've just about tamed one of them, but the second one is still wild and whipsnappy with long-reaching tentacles. It hasn't revealed all of its secrets yet, but it will be mine.

Some quick Wintercraftian news - last month, Shadowcry was chosen as a recommended book for Neil Gaiman's All Hallow's Read (very exciting!) and Blackwatch was picked as a Junior Library Guild Selection in the US. The series has been picking up lots of steam in the US, and for those of you who've emailed to ask about the release date of book three, stay tuned for an update very soon.

In the meantime, as an apology for being away so long, here's one of my favourite poems being read - rather brilliantly - by John De Lancie.

The Raven - by Edgar Allan Poe. 

Perfect listening for the darkening winter nights.

Sleep well, my friends.
