I’ve rounded up some lovely links over at the FableCroft website – people are talking about the book out and about and saying nice things!

I’ve had a tough time getting to work on FableCroft business this year, so making the most of this week to catch up on things. The first job was to do the pre-orders mailout of To Spin a Darker Stair – TICK! All those lovely people who pre-ordered copies now have them winging their way to eager hands 🙂
Next job was to fight with Paypal and the FableCroft website to create a new button for purchase – TICK! The FableCroft shop page now has To Spin a Darker Stair (and of course all the other books!) available for sale.
I also started work on the new TPP/FC newsletter (look for it in inboxes soon!) and finalised the reports for the Aurealis Awards. I’ll get stuff done yet!
I opened a parcel at work today, expecting it to be one of a zillion Fishpond books I’d ordered, and stared in some bewilderment at the cover of the gorgeous little book that came out – this was MY book, which is not printed yet! How did Fishpond get it?! And finally the penny dropped and I realised it was my proof copy of To Spin A Darker Stair! It’s a great conceit for me to call it MY book, because the credit for this beautiful little gift book belongs fully with the authors (Catherynne M Valente and Faith Mudge), the artist (Kathleen Jennings), and the designer (Amanda Rainey) – I did very little to make this book come to life. It is so pretty, and little and CUTE!
There’s only a few hours left to pre-order your copy of To Spin A Darker Stair, which will be released at Swancon at Easter. RRP will be $8.95, but I’ve had a limited pre-order special for just $7.95 (INCLUDING POSTAGE!). As a special bonus, all pre-orders go in the draw to win the very excellent new novel from Margo Lanagan, Sea Hearts. Pre-order here!
I’ve just announced the special pre-order price for FableCroft’s new book, To Spin a Darker Stair, featuring work by the amazing Catherynne M Valente, Brisbane writer Faith Mudge, and the ever awesome Kathleen Jennings.
To Spin a Darker Stair was rather a surprise addition to FableCroft’s 2012 lineup, springing as it did, unexpected, from the slushpile of a completely different project! It’s a beautiful little book though, and I’m proud to be able to share it with everyone (at Easter).
The pre-order prices include discounts on the RRP and reduced/free shipping all over the world. It’s good to get in early!
