    Last night before I drifted to sleep, I was thinking about the convergence of stories upon this one point of starting to heal a threatened world. It isn't one person who fixes everything, even if Nona or Yaz do extremely important things. It's all of them.

    That's rather nice and it was skillfully done.

    Where does this convergence take us though? What's next after a big inflection point in the fixing of a world? The real world we live in shows is that progress is not linear at all and that pain certainly waits in the future.

    Then I slept with no easy answers other than "I bet Mark is writing something fun".

    I am!

    I'm 80% of the way through book 3 of something fun.

    Soon I'll be thinking about what new thing to start. I'm considering finishing off Jacob's Ladder, the first 6 chapters of which can be found on Wattpad.

    It's a good job I remembered my password after a while (changed laptops). Because the whole "forgot my password" thing is totally busted. First off, it has the world's most difficult "what are these letters" thing, demanding the right case an changing the letter sizes ... is that a capital W or a little w? Who knows? And second off ... when you get it right eventually ... it doesn't send you the promised link to change your password. </rant> <who am I kidding? Imma keep on ranting>

    Wow - what a book (The Girl and the Moon). It stayed meaningful throughout and my heart broke a few times. Mark has gotten better and better at creating moments between characters that make the reader feel real things without being manipulative or easily predictable. It's a joy to read.

    I want to see what's happening at the bottom of the oceans - especially after a certain someone gets restored to themselves. I want to see what happens post-Moon. I want to see Nona develop over time - to see what happens to her headstrong fury and need to fix things as experience and more complicated situations arise.

    Great to hear you enjoyed it! :)

    Next year - something new - a trilogy starting with The Book That Wouldn't Burn.

    Meanwhile, on r/fantasy - the mother of all conspiracy theories!

    Finally settled down to read The Girl and the Moon, not even at chapter one yet and I'm about to lose my shit from the "Story so far" section...

    Mr Lawrence... if you've done what I think you may have done... you're an absolute madman and genius and I've been waiting for something like this for 9 years!!!

    Just DO NOT READ until you've FINISHED the book, spoiler from "The story so far" section before chapter 1...


    And if not, you're a bloody tease but I'll take that as that has got my heart going for this book even more now...

    It's funny you should use the term "madman".

    This from a recent interview I did:

    "One reader well versed in the ways of this particular character reached the reveal and messaged me to say "You absolute madman, you actually did it!". Another, who had also followed the character through many books, missed their presence entirely and yet still 5★ed The Girl And The Moon and reviewed it with lavish praise. So, in the final analysis, I feel that the undercurrents of the many books reach a confluence here that will bring a measure of satisfaction to the sharp-eyed Lawrence devotee, whilst having no negative impact whatsoever on the ability of a newbie to devour The Girl And The Moon with maximum enjoyment.

    But it wasn't an easy needle to thread!"


    The font seems to be invisible here, but I guess that can act as a spoiler-guard, not that it contains spoilers. Hints, possibly.
