So it is my birthday - another step towards fabulous old-lady sleuthdom! Last year I spent my birthday with my best friend in Japan, this year I spend it in New England Chez Black. I have good luck with birthdays.

The Smart Chicks tour was lots of fun, and to everyone who came: thank you! I now miss the other Smart Chicks authors, though. So many stories! So many excellent people! I do feel this picture sums up my behaviour on the tour however.

SRB: Muahaha! I have the microphone! Nobody shall take it away from me! I feel so gleeful! And so evil. I feel so gleevil!
HOLLY BLACK: Ahahaha, what is she saying? She is raving. Maybe she will eat the microphone next!
CASSANDRA CLARE: I do not even know what to say. :|

Or possibly my behaviour is summed up as follows: How I Shamed The Smart Chicks Forever

In other news, YA Book Reads are having a Sarah Rees Brennan week. That's me, y'all! I feel fancy.

And now for something completely different: what will be on the back (well, on the inside cover, but on the back if it wasn't a hardback) of the third Demon's Lexicon book.

The Goblin Market, where lives are won and lost and magic is bought and sold, has always been the center of Sin’s world. Now the war between magicians and the Market is escalating, and her position as future leader of the Market is threatened by a rival. Sin knows Mae can never really take control of the Market: Mae is a tourist and her brother Jamie is not only a powerful magician but the Aventurine Circle's newest and deadliest weapon. But as the Market gains strange new allies, support for Mae is growing, and Sin's only chance of leading the Market is to accomplish an impossible task.

Among the most dangerous of the Market's allies are the enigmatic Ryves brothers: Nick, who was once more than Sin's friend and whose demonic nature she cannot forget, and Alan, who has always been Sin's enemy and who she now owes a debt she cannot repay. Even as their unlikely band discovers common ground and new feelings arise between them, Sin realizes the brothers pose a greater danger than she dreamed. Alan is marked - and being tortured - by the magicians, and Nick seems to be working for them.

When Sin's family secrets are revealed, Alan's plans are rendered useless and betrayal comes from someone they trusted, a terrible sacrifice has to be made if anyone is going to survive the final battle.

The demon's surrender could destroy them all.

Happy Birthday :D

Happy Birthday Sarah! Have a great day filled with cake and drinks with little umbrellas. :) Very excited for TDS, I expect it shall be awesome. :) Also that picture is rather brilliant. Makes me even more distressed that the Smart Chicks didn't make it the UK. Epic!

Happy birthday, penblwydd hapus, breithlá shona dhuit!

If the sacrifice is Nick, I will cry. Like, legit, real crocodile tears. Branches crashing into my windshield? No big deal. Complicated and awesome characters dying? SOB.

PS - How DOES one tell the difference between black underwear and a black bikini through a window from afar!?

Well, at that point one must play marry, shag, cliff, to decide which character should bite it. ;) An excellent game: I made everyone play during Smart Chicks.

Oh hurray. I love rereading, so being told about people rereading my stuff is most pleasing. ;)

And also always nice to hear about a boy likin' Covenant: I admit we were all worried given the 'boys won't read about girls' received wisdom, but so far my excellent guy fans seem to be like 'Someone gets stabbed in the liver? We're still cool.'

Oh! Will you be having an event in New England?

Also, the summary for the new book sounds fantastic. I'm looking forward to it!
Sep. 21st, 2010 05:51 pm (UTC)
No, I haven't been asked to do so, I am just bothering my friends who live here. ;) But one day!

And I hope you will like it!

Happy Birthday!
All the best for your birthday! - from "the lady" who gave you the chocolates ;-) I hope you liked them and had them all to yourself despite the other hungry chicks around you. Feliz Cumpleaños, Herzlichen Glückwunsch, may there be endless parades and rains of red roses in your honour!

I am very pleased I went to Houston - and not only because I did get to meet you, you lovely person! I was also immensely impressed by the other authors, especially Kelley Armstrong and Holly Black which I had read but never seen in person before. Intelligent, eloquent, charismatic and so much fun, I like women like that and will enjoy there books even more now.
Also I made a new friend at the event, which makes me happy.So, thank you so much for the experience!

Re: Happy Birthday!
The chocolates are all belong to me, and I thank you again!

And I am so glad you had fun! I love joint events because I do think they are the best fun. I thoroughly enjoyed fangirling Kelley Armstrong myself, and I have never seen anyone be as fantastic at events as Holly Black.

And yay for new friends. ;)
