Clicketty-click

Publishers Weekly devotes/donates a large slab o' text to our multi-author novel.

Nice words from Arthur Levine, who pulled it all together:
These authors have been a joy to work with. What is incredibly wonderful about the final book is that you get to hear each writer’s distinctive voice but together they create another voice—the voice of the novel. I imagine the 10 of them sitting around a campfire, taking turns telling a single story. The thing is, with a group of celebrity authors like this, you know that they are all wonderful writers, but you don’t really know if in the end you will have a book that is interesting to read. But this is. It worked.

Congratulations Margo! This is Very Good News Indeed. We knew you could do it! We have been watching your career closely (well, that's not exactly true, more to the point I discovered your blog a couple of months ago). :-) Anyway, just to let you know that we haven't sighted a rat in a long time, but ... we do have a grey (phantom?) rabbit who visits now and then .. in case you need one for a story or something. Love from the Wilds of Bankstown, Jan, Adrian & Darcy. xoxo

Hi Jan! Thanks for dropping in and commenting! I think I can do something with the phantom rabbits (can you hear my brain whirring?). And we've had our share of rats since I borrowed yours; I am now all too aware of their habits, appearance and average (dead) weight. Oh, and their smell. Say hi to Adrian and Darcy, too - I hope you're all doing well. I saw Susi down in Melbourne last week; she's (re-)buggered her left wrist but is in good spirits otherwise. She's got a radio show on PBS called What the Folk - you can find out all about it here.
