I Wanna Be a Paperback Writer

Just LOOK at that. Did you ever see anything so gorgeous?



THE UNNAMEABLES comes out in paperback March 21. I am now the proud possessor of a whole box of them. I feel a contest coming on.

In case you want a closer view:



The cover was designed by Regina Roff, and those who've read the book will know just by looking at it that she did, too. And very carefully. Thank you, Regina! I'm also grateful to Julia Richardson, editorial director for paperbacks at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, for shepherding Medford and friends into their new home.

Bloggy goodness: Nice reviews for SMALL PERSONS WITH WINGS at Educating Alice , Charlotte's Library and Flamingnet, where young adult books are reviewed by actual young adults. Thanks, all!

I love the new cover. The black stencilling reminds me of the animated scene in Deathly Hallows.

Dear Sir or Madam can you read my book? It took me years....
oh, that's too depressing to continue.

Many congratulations. It really IS lovely.

That's beautiful. If I didn't have the hardcover, I'd buy the soft ;)
