Many thanks to the folks over at Yellow Brick Reads for chosing The Moorehawke Trilogy as the subject of this month’s Three Step Trilogy. I love YBR’s indepth, thoughtful approach to reviewing and I especially like their new Three Step Trilogy series which takes YA trilogies as a whole unit and analyses them as such. (See their detailed break down of The Hunger Games,Catching Fire & Mockingjay, and keep an eye out for next month’s series which is – I think – Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking Trilogy [though I may be wrong!]) Go check
out what they had to say about Moorehawke :
You will hear me on the radio this week. I’m heading to Dublin tomorrow to record an interview with RTE Digital for their Little Pages programme. Grainne Clear, a young friend and I will be chatting about Into The Grey. Not sure when this will be broadcast but I think Friday 15th? (I’ll let you know!) If you’d like to check out Grainne’s previous excellent book discussions you can find many podcasts here.
On the morning of Thursday 14th I’ll be over at the Newstalk studios chatting to Chris Donaghue for the Newstalk Breakfast Show. I’ll be on air around 9.20 or so. If you like, you can pick up the show on the newstalk live broadcast here.
On Friday I will be participating in the writers centre’s attempt to break the world record for the most number of writers reading consecutively from their own work There will be 111 separate Irish authors, inc myself, John Boyne, Roddy Doyle, Sarah ReesBrennan, all reading for 15 minutes each for 28 hours The entire thing will be webcast from the writers centre website, so even if you aren’t in the area, you can pop in and out over the course of the 28 hours to hear your favorite authors reading ( If you’d like to tune in – and I’d love you to! – I’ll be reading from Into The Grey at 2am (Irish time))
This week’s TV3 AM appearance has been postponed until August 15th, so I’ll remind you of it nearer to the time
After all this chatting, I’m going to be a little quiet for a bit. I’ve been finding it very difficult to work recently (I’m blaming my lack of a laptop – but there are other factors involved too) and I need to retreat for a while in order to give myself space to concentrate on the WiP before the next round of edits start on Resonance. So I won’t be around the interwebs too much in the next few weeks. I’m on a wee bit of a drawing kick though – there may be the occasional illustration to punctuate the silence
