Perhaps today’s the day + non-crappy prize

That’s right, the final book of the trilogy, Magic’s Child should now be available in the US of A (and possibly Canada too). You can celebrate by

  • buying Magic’s Child
  • borrowing it from your library (or getting them to order it in ’cause they’re very unlikely to have it already)
  • reading it
  • reading the whole trilogy through all in one go (please to let me know what that’s like)
  • reading the first draft of the first book in the series, Magic or Madness and laughing at how bad my first drafts are
  • downloading a special Magic’s Child screensaver (they’re on the sidebar to your right—pretty flutterbyes!)
  • Reading through the various reviews of Magic’s Child
  • Making origami ammonites

Or if you’re me, the mad author, you sit and play with the hardcovers of Magic or Madness, Magic Lessons and Magic’s Child and chuckle madly to yourself “I did it! I did it! Look at my pretties! All finished! All finished!”

[Accompanying image of mad author assaulting her books censored. Your eyes are grateful.]

The first person to send me photographic evidence of actual copies ofMagic’s Child in an actual book shop will win a signed copy of the book complete with matching Magic’s Child bookmarks.

    i’m planning to read the whole trilogy in one go…but since i’m in germany i have to wait for amazon to ship *magic’s child* to me over here…

    and since i’m on semi-bedrest due to contractions, i’ve got plenty of time. see the good side, right? 😛

    Yay!!! I’m going to have to go Chapters to see if it’s out in Canada yet. 😀

    See, this is just perfect–my birthday is in 2 weeks, and I asked my pops for an Amazon giftcard. I bought Magic or Madness with my Christmas giftcard, and I plan to buy the other 2/3 of the trilogy with this one. Serendipity, eh? I know your publisher *totally* planned it this way, just for me…. =)

    Magic’s Child isn’t in any of the bookstores around! It’s terrible!!! I have to order mine through, which is earlier than any of the bookstores are getting it in. Thank god for online shopping.
