So my baby has a new habit: gasping. She just started with these really loud, shocked noises, the kind you might hear if you saw someone falling down a flight or stairs. Or, if you yourself were about to fall down a flight of stairs. I should probably be used to it by now, as she does this constantly, but I still find myself jumping, startled, every once in awhile. Never a dull moment around here, I’m telling you.

In other news, there have been a lot of questions in the comments lately about Lock and Key. When will there be a more detailed summary? Perhaps an excerpt? I promise you, it is all coming, and some of it soon. Things are getting ready to really crank up here in terms of publicity–the book actually already received two good reviews, in VOYA and The Horn Book, yay!—and I will link to any and all of it as soon as I can. It probably would be up faster, but I’m too busy trying to calm my beating heart from all the gasping. Anyway, to answer your questions, a summary is coming, there will hopefully be an online excerpt (of me reading, no less) as well as lots of other fun stuff. So stay tuned.

Baby’s down for a (short) nap, so I’ve got to fold laundry/answer emails/drink some coffee/make the bed/plan my day. And I used to think I was actually efficient. HA!

have a good day, everyone!
