Silence is now out in the wilds (in theory). It’s May 1st.
Book days are always both exciting and nerve-wracking: Exciting because book! Nerve-wracking because the book – and my writing of it – is finally open to public scrutiny. Some people will love it. Some people will hate it. There’s always a little bit of fear lurking in the midst of the excitement — both are genuine.
What I can say about Silence is that it’s the first of three books, it’s contemporary fantasy, and it doesn’t — I’m sorry — have much in the way of romance in it. It’s the Michelle version of a ghost story. It has a cover I adore, by artist Cliff Nielsen.
The book jacket is a bit of (a lot of) a spoiler, so if you haven’t read it and you hate spoilers, don’t.
This isn’t meant to be a spoiler thread, because I imagine most of you haven’t read the book yet. I’ll make a spoiler thread post later, for people who want to discuss the book here.
