It’s a beautiful day to publish a book in softcover!
Today, April 30th, The Orphanmaster hits the bricks as a paperback. Less than a year ago people were introduced to my book for the first time.
It’s interesting. I’m sitting in the Ossining library researching Revolutionary New York City for a new novel. At the same, I heard today that the copyedit for my next book, Savage Girl, to be published by Viking in early 2014, is wending its way toward me. Savage Girl‘s story is set in Gilded Age Manhattan. I’m not flummoxed, though, by all these cultures, all these stories, all these versions of New York crashing against each other.
Like a fat, comfortable burgher in the 1664 Manhattan of The Orphanmaster, I’m taking it in stride.
