People have been tweeting about receiving their copies of To Spin a Darker Stair, and they are saying such lovely things!
Faith Mudge, one of the authors, sent me a beautiful note, and I hope she won’t mind me quoting her description: “The book is gorgeous – so small and sweet, a bookling really!” I LOVE it – bookling indeed!
Artist Kathleen Jennings talks us through the process of the cover art on her blog – so PRETTY.
DarkMatterzine has already reviewed it! Nalini says: ”I’m charmed by the book … these are re-imaginings from the dark side.” (among other nice things).
And on Twitter, Tansy Rayner Roberts called it, “a fairy cobweb of a … book.” Beautiful!
And finally (for now!), author Catherynne M Valente also had some things to say on Twitter – I’ve captured it as a picture to have forever! My favourite bit? “… a beautiful, delicate, strange book…”
If you’d like a copy too, pop over to the Shop and pick one up!

It occurred to me today that I have a marvellous opportunity to give readers (even more) incentive to pre-order their copy of FableCroft’s forthcoming gift book, To Spin a Darker Stair. The book features stories by Catherynne M Valente and Faith Mudge, and is illustrated by Kathleen Jennings.
Last month I accidentally ended up with an extra copy of Sea Hearts, the newest novel from the marvellous Margo Lanagan (I reviewed it here). I highly recommend it, so I’m offering it up as a pre-order prize! One lucky person who pre-orders To Spin a Darker Stair before March 15, 2012, will win Sea Hearts as well (drawn randomly from all pre-orders).
So, for just $7.95 (Australia), $8.95 (New Zealand) or $9.95 (rest of the world) you have the chance to get not just one but TWO awesome (beautiful) books! Don’t miss out on your chance to win - pre-order now! **
** Winner will be drawn from all pre-orders prior to March 15, 2012, including those already placed.
