I've never had a book come out that wasn't part of the Demon's Lexicon trilogy: I've never had a standalone come out! I've never had two books out in one year. (And September and Unspoken are not so very far away.) I'm unsure of what to do, other than throw confetti in the air and hope you like the book!
And... present you with THIS BOOK TRAILER. I've never had an official book trailer before, so thank you Harper Collins for making me feel exceedingly fancy.
I always like talkin' about books, and I am talking about Team Human on twitter TONIGHT! The official chat hashtag is #THChat. The chat will begin at 6PM EST.
If you are not a twitter person, the Figment Chat will be Sunday, July 8, at 8PM EST. All you need to do is follow this link here when The Time Comes!
And while I am linking you guys to STUFFS, here are some more linkies I hope you enjoy.
Here is me and Justine discussing Team Human on chat, as an INSIGHT into our PROCESS
Cory Doctorow, praising Team Human on Boing Boing. (So fancy!)
Me, being interviewed about Team Human here
The first of the Team Human events I will soon be doing in America, but not the last (details to come!) is as follows:

Official statement, with my, um, less than official commentary on that statement. ;)

RSVPs are required for this event. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Holly Black (Black Heart), Cassandra Clare (City of Lost Souls), & Sarah Rees Brennan (Team Human) come to the HVYAS!
A monthly series, the HVYAS brings the best and brightest YA authors to the Hudson Valley in a memorable and fun party-like “literary salon” atmosphere, with refreshments, conversation, and giveaways for attendees.
Holly Black is the bestselling author of contemporary fantasy novels for teens and children. Her books include The Spiderwick Chronicles, White Cat, and Red Glove.
Cassandra Clare is the author of the bestselling Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series. Her books include City of Bones and Clockwork Angel.
Sarah Rees Brennan’s newest book, Team Human, is co-written with Justine Larbalestier. Sarah is also the author of The Demon’s Lexicon.
We’ll be reading, signing books, and answering questions. I’ll bring something special to read, be it the draft of Clockwork Princess or even a scene or two from The Dark Artifices!
I am going to be there, because I am Sarah Rees Brennan, and the announcement says I will be.
AND! I am going to be giving away advance copies of UNSPOKEN, my imaginary-friend-is-real-boy Gothic romance!
And I can’t wait to see you guys there! Holly and Cassie are a very good time. And I, uh, I have a… unique charm. It’s quirky. You might like it OK. I’ll do impressions of Holly and Cassie’s characters. They might hit me with their shoes.
It’ll be an ADVENTURE!
A new book always is an adventure. (Yes, I do impressions on request. I once did a Harry Potter/Twilight fusion impression I feel may have been my best work.)
And to end this very bizzy post, a beautiful, beautiful picture.
I met Street Angel at a signing I did in London with Cassandra Clare, and told her how much I liked her art, and she gave us CUPCAKES!
... I will be honest. She gave Cassie cupcakes, but I ate some, even though they were NOT MINE. I am a shameless cupcake thief.
So you see she is a very kind lady.
And she drew me, not only the Kit and Mel Team Human comic I have showed you guys before, but a SERIES of fantastic TEAM HUMAN pictures.

I am surrounded, both off and online, by fantastic people: I have a new book out: I am very lucky. Talk to you all soon!
