Yes I’m SORRY I didn’t post an fan art last Friday. I was overwhelmed with submissions and with a touch of the flu. But rest assured that you’ll be seeing lashings of fan art right here THIS Friday.
In the meantime, I have a cool interview to share with you, but first some very important news:
Today is the book birthday of The Last Little Blue Envelope, Maureen Johnson’s long-awaited sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I’m sure zillions of you read that ages ago, and will want to get the new one TODAY. If you haven’t read 13 LBE, you’ve been missing a total YA classic.
The books are about a girl who inherits a set of 13 envelopes containing mysterious messages from her recently deceased aunt. She has to travel around Europe to decode them, and discovers love and art and much more in the process. 13 LBE is justly famous and beloved, and is simply a must read. I’m sure the sequel is going to be awesome.
And now for my interview with the Science Fiction Book Club, which is publishing its own edition of the Leviathan trilogy. This interview contains some tantalizing hints about Goliath, and reveals for the first time some of the amazing color images from the companion art book for the series, The Manual of Aeronautics.
Click here to watch it bigger. Thanks to Diana Pho and the SFBC for taking the time to chat with me.
Before you ask, The Manual of Aeronautics comes out in August 2012. It’s in a bigger format than the other books, so you can bask in its large and glorious images, and is ALL in color. There are beasties, machines, uniforms, character portraits, and of course loads of plans from a certain living airship. (Obviously, Keith does the art.)
See you Friday.
