There will be sparkles apparently. The girl, the moth, the shards of ice will all shimmer slightly when you turn them to the light. (and, of course, my illustrations are being used as dinkuses) Oh, I cannot wait to hold this creature in my hands.
Release date for AUS/IRE/UK is April 2015, and she’s already available for preorder from Amazon with the following blurb:
What does it mean to be alive? What is it worth to stay alive?
Ireland, 1890: two ruthless immortals prowl the theatre district in search of food for their ‘Angel’. Ancient, pitiless and caring for none but their own twisted family, they will stop at nothing to maintain their grip on life.
A seamstress, the young man who loves her and a penniless American magician soon find themselves imprisoned in a snow-bound country estate, the latest additions to the family’s warped collection. Here, they are nothing but food, nothing but entertainment, and soon they will be nothing at all.
Many miles from their homes and fighting for survival, Tina, Joe and Harry will come to understand that far more is at stake than their lives
This baby has been a long time in the works, and there are little bits and pieces all over the net. The following three are my favorites. I hope you enjoy them:
Under the Ice, a short section from one of the Vincent POV chapters (note this is an unedited version)
The Risk of Tuppence (originally published in the Irish Independent Christmas Supplement 2009) a short story written from Joe’s POV. Set 6 or so years before the book
Chapter One: The Fading God (note this is an unedited version) The opening of the book and one of the Cornelius POV chapters
