One: There’s still time to enter my inaugural Operation Clean Out Closet (hereby christened OCOC) giveway of Jessica Day George’s Princess of the Midnight Ball. The drawing’s Friday, March 6th (that’s tomorrow!)… go here for details.
Two: This month’s Estella’s Revenge is up. One of the fun things working a bit behind the scenes is seeing how, when you’re afraid that there’s going to be hardly anything in this issue, people can come through last minute, and suddenly there’s a great issue bursting at the seams with features, columns, and (of course) reviews (in the category of “books I really would LOVE to read, but can’t because they’re not out in the US”, check out Elaine’s review of The Madonna of the Almonds. Sounds heavenly.)
My stuff… I interviewed Joshua Henkin, one of the nicest and most interesting authors I’ve talked to in a while. I also have three reviews: two YA winners — The Parliament of Blood and Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One Before — and one so-so nonfiction — Somewhere in Heaven.
Go check it out! (And don’t forget to enter my giveaway!)
