I also want to point you in the direction of a wonderful review for the book up at Mabel's Fables. This stunning review by Shanti makes me very proud indeed. I noticed a fabulous review of Teri Hall's Away (the sequel to The Line) posted there too. Having loved The Line I'm really excited to read this sequel. Hopefully soon after those line edits are done! With a deadline two days after Canadian Thanksgiving (October 10th), though, I'm going to have to pause book-work on the weekend to bake a couple pear pies. My stomach is getting grumbly at the thought.
I'll also be pausing to vote in Thursday's provincial election, of course, and I'm hoping a whole lot of Ontarians are as worried about what a Conservative hat trick would do to this place as I am.
