Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

A birthday and some big news

with 4 comments

Today is my birthday, which normally would mean a day off, but not this year—I’ve got about four months to deliver the sequel to The Icon Thief, so every writing day counts. Still, I’m looking forward to a celebratory dinner tonight, as well as a chance to reflect on the events of twelve highly eventful months, more than half of which, amazingly, have been spent on this blog. I hope you’ll agree that we’ve come a long way from my first post at the end of November, and I’ve been gratified to get so many regular visitors and perceptive comments. Thanks, everyone!

Also, in case you haven’t heard yet, I have some fairly big news: The Icon Thief is now available for pre-order on There isn’t a lot on the page at the moment—no cover art or description, for instance—but there is a release date: March 6, 2012. I’ve just confirmed with my publisher that this is, in fact, the real thing, so you can go ahead and mark your calendars. You could even buy it right now, although the estimated shipping date is ten long months away. And in any event, it’s cause for celebration. (All credit to Cake Wrecks for the photo above.)

  3. Happy Birthday! I think the cake you posted was for last week (at least on their wall calendar). This week’s cake features naked mohawked babies riding carrots.

  4. “naked mohawked babies riding carrots.”

    Sounds charming.

    Martha says it’s a good thing.

    After all, you’ve got to get your veggies somewhere.
