Catching up and Rhombus news

I know I've been gone for a while, but with school / the Brown Bookshelf / work / Thanksgiving / life in general, I just haven't had the time to blog.

I've got a few things to announce, but first, some Public Service Announcements:

1) Thanks for all of your support for both The Brown Bookshelf and the 28 Days Later initiative. The last day to suggest a book is this Saturday, so be sure to head over to the site and nominate a book.

2) There's a great discussion going on at Finding Wonderland concerning just what it means to be a "brown" author. There are good points on both sides of the issue there--I highly suggest reading through the comments (up to 30 as of this evening), and perhaps even posting one of your own.

And concerning Rhombus:

It's hard to believe, but in five short weeks, My Life as a Rhombus should be on the shelves (I say should because release dates are notoriously wrong). I've updated the website to list upcoming author appearances, a new blurb from Booklist, and...the first full chapter of the novel!

Take a look, and let me know what you think.

Varian, It looks to me that Amazon is showing your book as available!!!

Just thought I'd let you know in case you hadn't seen that!

I'm going to wait and buy it at Powells. :)
