Apparently, getting a starred review in Publishers Weekly is what is known as ‘A Good Thing’. Pleased, therefore, to say that Winterbirth has got one, about two-thirds of the way down this page.
It talks about the ‘unapologetically stark yet darkly poetic narrative’ and seems to predict a ‘fervent audience’, which sounds slightly alarming if you ask me, but I imagine I could live with it should such a thing come to pass.
Also, if anyone feels like they have an unrecognised talent for interrogation, there’s an invitation to submit questions for an interview with me here – don’t seem to able to link directly to the specific post, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find, since it’s got a great big picture of the Winterbirth cover.
EDIT: Things change fast in internetland – I can now link to the specific post about interview questions so here it is.
