I will refrain from gag-inducing metaphors of birth & infancy. Suffice it to say that today, the second Agency novel, The Body at the Tower, is published by Candlewick Press. I’m one-third disbelief, one-third out of my mind with excitement, and one-third “Stop it, Ying, you’re such a nerd”.
Fortunately, it’s not all about me. The Body at the Tower blog tour is at Steph Su Reads today, where I guest-post about Notorious Victorian Joseph Merrick – aka the Elephant Man – and the way he used celebrity as a survival strategy. His is a tragic but also smart and fascinating story.
Steph then reviews Body: “damn if the pages didn’t nearly catch on fire…” *evil cackle from smug author*
There is no real-world launch party today, but stay in touch: I’m planning an online launch party in September. Details to follow.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to celebrate.
