Release Day + Website Extras!

I had a super nice release day, not least because it spanned two timezones. Mmm, cosmopolitan.

Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier said lovely things (Sarah spoils, Justine doesn’t) and my US editor Alvina Ling did a wonderful post in her Beyond the Book series on Guardian‘s road to publication, which also collected a number of MY favourite posts on the publication process, so be sure to check that out.

Internets, I want to reward you if you are one of the lovely people who has purchased the book. So here you may find some website extras in the form of mini-essays.

This essay explains some of the real people behind the names I used for the fake Mansfield College.

And this one talks about the creation of my treasured replica of Mark’s bracelet.

You may rightly imagine very minor spoilers in each.
