My most beloved book baby, The Poison Box, turns 5 years old today. Actually, that only marks her debut into the world. She’s actually much older than that - more like 23 years old! I started that book when I was 19 years old and rewrote it several times until I was satisfied with it.
I’m launching a week-long celebration on social media to honor my sweet book baby. I love this book so much and am so proud of the work I put into it. And Mary Raedwolfe, the protagonist, has become a dear, dear companion over these long decades. In fact, I’m still writing her story. I’m almost finished with the next book in the series, and halfway done with the third!
Here’s a video in which I talk about the book, and the sequels. Please forgive the video - my camera really did a number on me and there are a few places in the video where the audio and video don’t match up (ugh, major pet peeve of mine!). My apologies. Maybe just listen instead of watching. ;)
