Team Human

Team Human is out today!

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:

Event announced here!

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

Start: 07/15/2012 4:00 pm
This event will be held at Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY.

RSVPs are required for this event. Please RSVP to rsvp@oblongbooks.com

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!

Congrats! This is very exciting. :)
Although I'm all "Why did I not get this book months ago, why do publicists hate me so."
(And then I'm all "respond to my email so I know how and where to send you money and co-signed contract, you silly distracted writer, you!) :)

You have a book out and I do not have it. This is wrong. :(

I spent the afternoon reading Team Human (okay, reclining on a couch with a book in one hand and a fan in the other - it was very Victorian, Francis would have approved) and thought it was most excellent. As soon as I was done, I emailed my sister and told her to get a copy. Happy book launch day.

Congrats on Team Human!! How can I get in in the UK? Do you know if it will be available at all, or do I need to harass my family back in Australia to buy it and post to me?
I doubt if you'd remember at all, but last year when you and Cassie were signing in London I came and made my poor 9yr old daughter stand in line for almost 2 hours. She was very happily reading the latest Sisters Grimm book and when we got to the front of the line she asked both you and Cassie if it was ok for you to sign her book too. Cassie wrote that she didn't write the book, but hoped Maddi would enjoy it anyway, and you wrote that you had totally written the book and that you might possibly also be a liar. Well, she now uses that book as her 'signing' book for all authors, and has about 10 signatures! She is desperate to be old enough to read your books, because she thinks you are hilarious based on that one meeting. She snuck all your books onto her bookcase in the hopes I wouldn't miss them - sadly for her I re-read favourite books and missed them really quickly!

I think getting it in the UK means amazon or thebookdepository.co.uk (free shipping!) or indeed, family.

That is wonderful and adorable! I remember my lying sign... I'm clearly the bad egg. ;) And I like your daughter's ninja ways...

I had pre-ordered Team Human on Kindle and I see that it must have downloaded sometime today. Zips off to read...

Congratulations! I loved the Demon's Lexicon series, I'm looking forward to reading this one. Do you know if it will be available at Kobo? I'm not 100% clear on which companies sell eBooks with proprietary format, and I know my Sony can read books from them!

I just finished Team Human, I laughed, I teared up, I recommended it to my friends. :)

I'm definitely Team Human. But mostly I'm Team Mel.
