i want to say moree about my overwhelming glee & gratitude, etc etc but my unbelievably crabby 2yo just fell asleep in my arms so im typing very quietly, one handed, i'm sorry 😂
okay i have transferred him to his bed!! pretty sure i could disarm a ticking bomb if i had to!

i am so, so, so happy with this cover, and indebted to the entire tordotcom team, especially editors @JonathanStrahan & @EngleLaird, and David Curtis for his AMAZING art.
i am also--just between yall and me--pretty damn happy about the novella itself. writing it felt like an indulgence, an escape, a thing to pour my whole cheeseball heart into. i mean, look, they let me get away with THIS nonsense: excerpt from unpublished novella

it's an outrageous indulgence and privilege which i neither deserve nor need--i wrote most of my last book parked outside the utility building with my laptop propped on the steering wheel--but god, i love it
okay

1) it cost about $850, but we salvaged the windows and tin

2) we designed and built it ourselves!!

3) i will not poison myself with propane, i am familiar with the dangers, thank you for your concern

4) process pictures!!! ImageImageImageImage

our anxious 4yo recently learned that all humans die. it was really tough, we all cried, but we got through it.

today he found out that all humans die at DIFFERENT TIMES and he's LIVID
"who's going to die first??? which one of us?? are you going to leave me alone in this house while you turn into dirt?? i can't reach the cereal!!!!"
apparently he previously thought humanity would "all stop living together," in some sort of mass extinction event, and that was totally fine with him

okay wow, this thread did not go the way i thought! to the city kids who never read the Chincoteague books, baby horses are called foals and they look like two pairs of stilts wearing a hat. ponies are called ponies and they look like well fed stuffed animals. foalpony
