The Traitor, revealed

Hello friends!

In just one month, the third Mary Quinn mystery, The Traitor and the Tunnel, will be published in the UK. Yes, there’s still a long-ish wait for us North Americans (spring ’12), but I hope you’ll find it worthwhile. Candlewick Press are busy shooting the cover, which I hope to get a peek at soon.

I recently heard from an Australian reader, gently ticking me off (in the most charming way possible) for not mentioning Australian pub dates. Mea culpa, Crystal, and I won’t forget again! Traitor will be published there in November. And I was delighted to hear this past week that The Body at the Tower has been long-listed for an Australian teen readers’ award, the Inky. Woot! (Or is there a more appropriately Australian noise of celebration?)

In the meantime, let’s countdown to the UK release (and tide over Americans and Canadians until spring 2012) with this excerpt from Traitor. Hope you enjoy it!

    Spring 2012 for us Americans and 1 month for Britons. *sigh* The injustice of it all. haha

    You’re all swelling my ego to unmanageable proportions. But thank you, and I hope if you wait until 2012, you find it worthwhile!

    How come the British never have to wait?!? Huh, at least I have more time to read the first two books again and again- they never get old. :)
