THE MARBURY LENS. A Glimpse of PASSENGER. The Epic Giveaway Continues.

The MARBURY LENS is a brilliant, disturbing, echo-inducing book. I can't help it; I always see the title in capitals in my head.
Watch the trailer.

I think maybe you will see the title all in capitals now, too.
Waiting for PASSENGER (yes, that will always be in caps for me as well) is a trial.
Happily for one of us, Andrew Smith is giving me page five of PASSENGER to give away.
This page has edits from Liz Szabla(chimes) and is signed by Himself.
Here is what Andrew says about his piles of manuscripts. I think many people would call them "archives."
I think Andrew would laugh at the thought of him having "archives."
What Andrew writes is important. I posted about that here. I believe in making boys visible. I believe in good books and passing the nimbus.
I believe in books that kick ass and take you places you may not want to go, and then when you get there you realize that's where you needed to be. Books that convey moments of grace when grace is unlikely. And, really, if you think about it, few things are less likely and more necessary.For all of us.

If you would like to enter the contest,see the details here.

The The Spooktacular Giveaway Hop is also going on right now. Each blogger is offering a book-related prize. Go for them.


  1. That book trailer is so spooky! I forgot about that. I agree wholeheartedly with the idea that we all need, in one way or another, moments that bring us that type of insight or clarity or, as you say, grace.
    Well done K.

  2. Thoroughly intimidated by 'book trailers' this one is awesome. I must rad this book.

  3. I want to read the book, not rad the book. I have a sticky keyboard that needs replaced, and apparently sticky eyes that can't proof.

  4. Whoa. The trailer makes the hairs on my arms prickle. No kidding. Your last paragraph is awesome, well said.

  5. *shudders*

    That. Trailer. Was. AWESOME.
