Last week was my birthday (39, I have one year left in my 30′s!) and I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of well-wishes from friends, family, and readers all over the world via Facebook, twitter, e-mail, and the like. Literally hundreds of them. Sometimes writing feels like the loneliest gig on the planet, but once in a while I am reminded what a huge family I have thanks to my books, and how fortunate I am. Thank you everyone who took the time to chime in. It means the world to me.
One facebook post in particular stood out … Portuguese graphic novel artist Pedro Pires, who I met in 2010 on my visit to Lisbon, painted an amazing portrait of me! Pedro, you are awesome. Thanks so much!
On top of that, my agent got me a Hungarian book deal for the first three Demon Cycle books on my birthday as well. Win.
