Catherynne Valente has a new project and she needs all our help!

Catherynne Valente author of the acclaimed "Orphan's Tales" duology reviewed HERE(In the Night Garden) and HERE(In the Cities of Coins and Spice) as well as the recent Palimpsest, needs our help!!

Times are challenging today and sometimes bad fortune hits unexpectedly. Last night I saw THIS on sffworld and today Cheryl Morgan also talks a bit about Ms. Valente's project as a way of coping with the hard times.

So in Ms. Valente words:

Over the course of the Palimpsest tour, people asked me one thing more than anything else.

What about The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland? Is it a real book? Will you write it?

And I said no. It's impossible, a YA book that is a book-within-a-book in a deeply non-YA novel. I even said no to a very sweet six year old.

Starting Monday, I will start posting chapters of a full-length novel version of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. I will be writing it in real time, posting every Monday. It will be free to read--but please know that the sheer calories to make my brain create it require funding, and I would very much appreciate your support. Pay whatever you like for it, whatever you think it's worth. It's kind of like an old-fashioned rent party. There's a button at the bottom of the post to start things out.

This is a book about a little girl named September who gets herself a ticket to Fairyland on the back of The Green Wind and a somewhat cranky Leopard. There she discovers the realm of the capricious Marquess and the dangers of the Perverse and Perilous Sea. It is going to be something else."

So go and check it out and help if possible. Check out the The Omikuji project too, maybe something there will be for you!!
