In a couple of hours Kelly, me, and Cassandra Clare will be doing a reading & signing at the Odyssey Bookshop in S. Hadley, Massachusetts. Should be fun as we love that bookstore and have a few titles on our want list.
Looks like Kelly and I will also be at Annie’s Bookstop’s Carnival of Authors in Worcester on Saturday, November 18. Come on by!
I was reading Shelf Awareness during my teabreak today and came across this lovely mention of the book . . .
“A title Delaney is handselling with success is The Inquisitor’s Apprentice by Chris Moriarty. Set in the early 20th century in New York City, a melting pot where magic is prohibited, the story is one of the books featured in a steampunk-themed window display. Another is Steampunk!: An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant and including tales by Libba Bray, Cory Doctorow and Holly Black. Some of the Rediscovered Bookshop’s clientele are already fans of the genre, and Delaney and her staff are actively working to introduce others to the world of steampunk.”
. . . so yay for the Rediscovered Bookshop in Boise, Idaho!
There was also a great review by Karen Meisner on io9 which really captures something of what we hoped we’d get when we were working on the book: “There is a tremendous sense of forward motion and hope for the future. I think readers of all ages can enjoy this book, and I hope it inspires them to go out and create wondrous things.”Leave a Comment »
