It never fails that exciting things happen when I’m trying to stay off the internet, and I can either report them and let myself succumb to distraction, or I can stay off the internet and appear even more oblivious than usual. So yes, while I was gone, I learned that Seraphina is one of the finalists for the 2012 Andre Norton Award. I’m not so jaded by my other nominations that I’m impervious to the tremendous honour of this one. What a wonderful list to be on. I am so very, very awed and grateful.
I finished the current draft of The Sequel Unnameable and sent it to El Capitan Pantalones de Editor. The second book won’t be called Dracomachia, I am reliably informed, but what it WILL be called is still up in the air at this point. I am now off to a week or two (or however long it takes) of unbridled napping. That’s right. I’m tired.
Thursday evening (7ET) I will be participating in an on-line author chat at a site called Figment, along with fellow debut novelists Alexandra Monir and Elizabeth Laban. It should be excellent good fun. I’ll wake up for it, I promise.

I don’t say this often enough – I just could not be happier for you, Rachel.
Can’t wait to read the sequel.
Enjoy your well earned hibernation.
I am so excited to hear about the success of Serafina. I am reading it now and I love it! I am thrilled to hear about the sequel as well, cannot wait!
I preordered “Dracomachia” from Amazon. They are now calling it “Shadow Scale: A Companion to Seraphina” in my order status. Is this what will appear on my book when it shows up?
We have recently changed the title of the book to SHADOWSCALE (one word) (I hope). I guess if Amazon knows about this already then it’s official and I should write a post about it.
