It’s quiet. Too quiet.

Actually the activity over here is appallingly frenetic. I went to Toronto, talked about the future of the book, then got stuck in the airport Sheraton overnight on the way back, from which I drunk-tweeted up a storm. In about three hours I’m going to be interviewing Neil Gaiman onstage.

(I just keep saying that over and over again. Each time I get a little cooler.)

But most of the activity is happening below the surface, meaning I can’t talk about it. I’m writing some interesting essays I can’t talk about. I’m getting some fantastic art for the Magicians store, but I can’t show it to you yet (and we need more. More!) There’s zithromax antibiotics online some cool secret things coming that are so cool and secret that I can’t even make veiled allusions to them yet.

Oh, and the new website for The Magician King went up. I had nothing to do with it — I didn’t even know it had gone up! — so I can say that I think it’s lovely and elegant. And The Magician King got its first review, from Kirkus, which is one of the ‘trades’ (meaning it’s for booksellers and librarians and such, and it runs reviews well in advance of a book’s actual publication). It was a great review.

But it’s not up yet. So I can’t talk about it.

    can’t wait to send a fillory postcard

    seeing the white vs black dark vs light thing
    does that mean the magicians king is going to be much darker than the magicians?

    what if it becomes a trilogy
    what color are you (website personnel) going to use next?

    Ack, you are so mean, teasing us with that Neil Gaiman interview. I’d have loved to be able to see that.

    I will see him do WITS on Friday (this Friday, as in the day after tomorrow!). You, however, aren’t coming here (I know, not your fault). We will have to petition harder to get you to the Twin Cities next time. For sure.

  7. OMG! OMG! There’s a sequeal!? Thank God I read Slate now and then. I know I live in a cave, but I really need to get out more often. Best part is that I will have finished re-reading The Magicians and finished the Game of Thrones A Dance with Dragons just in time for The Magician King. Perfect timing.

    Thank you book gods.
