Some of you may remember the wonderful music the young composer Charles Gray has written in response to Lost Voices and Waking Storms. Well, here’s the final piece in his series, “The Lost Voices Trilogy Finale: The Twice Lost.” I think it’s the best one yet, so deep and suspenseful and gorgeous!
I’ll be leading a workshop for teenagers on writing fantasy fiction at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 23rd. Would love to see you there! (The workshop is near the very bottom of the schedule: 2PM in the Borough Hall Conference Room.)
Waking Storms is finally out today! To celebrate, I’m giving away two signed copies. Stop by the Lost Voices Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lost-Voices-volume-1-of-The-Lost-Voices-Trilogy/179651908753958)
and write a comment on my top post–the one about the giveaway–BEFORE NOON on July 4th, and I’ll include you in the drawing.
I’m so excited.
A brilliant thirteen-year-old composer, Charles Gray, has just written this exhilarating, moving overture to Lost Voices! I love it immensely.
The biggest news is that I finished writing the third and final volume of the Lost Voices Trilogy. It’s called The Twice Lost, and I am very happy with how it turned out–but it won’t be out until July of 2013! Ah, well. After I delivered it to my publisher, I went into a long swoon of reading all of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice, and now I’m on the last book, and it is just as brilliant as everyone says.
In other news, I recently saw the first review for Waking Storms, and it’s so sweet! (Scroll down; it’s the last one on the page.)
Finally, Lost Voices has been nominated for The Children’s Book Council Teen Choice Award. If you could take a minute to vote for it, that would be awesome!
Actually Carolyn tells me our reading on the 16th is at 6PM, not 7. Same location, though.
On November 16th at 7 PM I’ll be reading and signing books at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble at 97 Warren Street, and the charming Carolyn Turgeon and Tara Altebrando will be reading with me! I think I’ll read a dream from Lost Voices and also a dream from the sequel, Waking Storms.
We have an official winner of the Name-A-Mermaid Sweepstakes. She’s Cala, and I have a wonderful mermaid all picked out for her. Congratulations, Cala! Here’s wishing you marvelous adventures in book three!
