On a related note, what do you mean "possibly in November 2008". Surely we can't be expected to wait that long???Say it aint so.
Last I heard, it was possiblyin August in Australia, and 'a Fall book' (i.e. September or October) in the US. It keeps changing, so I'll leave the 'possibly' in the profile until it's a 'definitely' something.I know, it's a long time. I guess they've got to grow the trees, eh.
Dear Outraged of Lewisham,Cloth-golem buggery?? I say! Reminds me of my boarding school years.Intrigued of Marrickville.
Okay, Jonathan, latest is, possibly August-September 2008.Yes, Chris, it's all good, wholesome fun, wot! And I'm allowed to keep the buggery, apparently. Phew, that was a close shave.

OK. I guess I can wait. I guess I'll have to. That's the trap of a writer blogging about their writing. Us readers get all excited and want to read the book. But there's all this editorial reviewing and printing and binding that still has to be done.I'll find something else to read in the meantime.

I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
