Launch of The Crow and The Website

The Crow is launched in the US today, woohoo! And to mark its launch, my publishers Candlewick have created a wonderful website for The Books of Pellinor. It has all sorts of bells and whistles - author interviews, descriptions of the characters, maps, poems and lovely graphics. I am thrilled.

(And now I have to make the official weasely blogger apology for neglecting this blog. I'll be in more often, I swear, but maybe after October, which is the Melbourne Festival, one of my favourite but most exhausting times of the year. If you want to see how tired I've been, check out the rather wan author photo on the site!)

hey alison, i just checked out the site. it is so cool! nice work whoever did it. and you dont look at all wan, remarkably good for someone whos put that much work into it. The one thing i dont like is the illustration of cadvan. i think he looks a little too wild and wooly. I know its just a drawing, but it is so not how i invisaged him at all! what do you think? do you see him the same or much different from that?? Thanks Rach

I can't wait to see if my library has The Crow!! I've been on pins and needles since I finished the last book.

Thanks Tinkerbelle and Ednella! Tinkerbelle, he's not how I imagine him, but to be honest, I'm not quite sure what Cadvan looks like (this is why I'm so interested in how other people see him). And we can't have you suffering pins and needles, Nella.

I'm glad that The Crow is finally being released in the US. I'll have to order it for my library (it's so good to be a voracious reader who is also a librarian!!), and take it out just because it's finally here! I must admit that a fortuitous layover in England last December allowed me to get it then, and I don't know how I would have waited until September to read this. If no lucky vacation related travel allows me to get this book when it first comes out, I'll just have to order it directly from Australia. I'm getting quite good at that...
