Congratulations! 🙂 That is great news!
Thanks, it’s pretty cool. 🙂
What is really good is that the publisher is already trumpeting my third!
Ooh, even better! 🙂
Murphy Beaucoup. 🙂
Congrats, Marie! :-))
Murky Buckets. 😀
This is extremely rad.
Oh this is right through rad and out the other side, Millie!
So you sold your soul to the Angels? Big congratulations Marie. I’ve been a one dimensional reader for the past…oh, 15 years or so with baseball books never being in short supply, but I’m eager to experience your new novel. I certainly enjoyed Lupa. It’s a huge accomplishment. Glad to share in your joy. And congratulations to Millie as well!
Yes, Millie is astonishing. The new novel is totally different from ‘Lupa’ in just about every way, so I hope you have some fun reading it. Currently it’s only available in eBook form, but it should be available in print soon…
Looking forward to it. I might throw in a couple of baseball books with my amazon order when the print version becomes available. Twist my arm. Enjoy.
As it should be different from Lupa. Your interests seem to spread out to both poles. I secretly hope..oops, no longer a secret…that busy schedules allow you to write a novel featuring cricket. Your passion for the sport is evident in your explanations. Come to think of it, is there a body of literature devoted to cricket? Or maybe it’s not even considered literature as baseball is in North America.
Anyway, what matters to me is style of expression. Lupa gripped me and I’m confident any other subject matter you tackle will do the same.
A cricket novel? Maybe I could become the Dick Francis of cricket. The only thing that springs to mind at the moment would be a pastiche of the early-mid 20c school stories we used to get in Britain. It’s worth thinking about, though. Maybe making an episode in one of my vampire sequels a cricket match between vampires an humans. Sledging – threatening to drive one of the stumps through the BATsman’s heart…
Although I have written about cricket before, kind of: http://mairibheag.com/2011/11/05/a-woman-on-the-edge-workshop-project-of-prose-and-poetry-part-5/
And indeed tennis:
It looks like the comment thread ran out of string. Oh well, let me start another one and be as brief as possible. Your “springs to mind” is just what I had hoped for and never expected. It sounds wonderful.
Thanks for the links. I’m off the (whatever it’s called when a skier decides to push away from the flat space) and dive down. I don’t know Dick Francis but I see that he was a steeplechase rider and crime novelist. I envision your cricket novel (s) being significantly to the east or west of pastiche. It’s already evident in what you revealed-a match between vampires and humans. I’m looking north and south and don’t see anything.
