Drawing-break: Sophie Hatter, from Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle. I love the film, but I love how she talks to the hats in the book!

Reading is a tactile experience and never more so than in childhood, as our first encounters with covers and spines and illustrations are imprinted on our minds.

From The Millions, a beautiful essay by Alix Ohlin on “the sad, strange brilliance” of Tove Jansson, creator of the beloved Moomin series

But, please, can we stop calling queer women’s lovers and spouses mere “companions”? It does an injustice to the dignity and depth of those relationships. (Especially during LGBT Pride Month.)

Today is the day!  My little book, Chasers of the Light, is officially out and we still have the chance to push it to the #1 spot and show the whole world that poetry is not dead.  Thank ALL of you for all you’ve done so far to make this so amazing.  Now I have something to give back :) 

Right now, I am so happy to announce that I’ve paired up with Penguin and Perigee to offer an amazing sweepstakes.  From now until September 7th, go into any bookstore and snap a photo of yourself with my book, upload it to Instagram or Twitter or Tumblr or Facebook with the hashtag #chasersofthelight to be officially entered.  I can’t legally say you have to buy the book, but obviously I’d love it if you did :)  The winner, chosen at random in about 10 days, will receive a rad prize…a photoshoot for you in Your hometown with me and my wonderful partner Sarah Linden, as Treehouse Photography is coming to you!  I will get to meet you, hang out, snap some amazing photos of you and yours, and you get all the images when we’re done!  There are some fun Runner-Up prizes as well, including signed books and Prints from my Typewriter Series.
