So, here is the link to the 2008 journals for Beatrice as she vacations in the Cochamó Valley. Just in case you were wondering, the Cochamó Valley really does exist in the mountains of Chilean Patagonia. It really is very isolated, and it really is that beautiful. Sadly, I haven’t been, but very much hope to go someday.
Publication news for This Same Earth is excellent! I have done the final edits on the manuscript, and it is at the proofer right now. Once I give final approval, it will go to the formatter and then out to you readers! ARCs will be going out to reviewers soon, so there should be some reviews posted by the release. Thanks again for all your amazing enthusiasm. You are all an inspiration to me.
I absolutely loved the response I got to the Polyvore sets I created for Gio and Beatrice. I guess you all like clothes!
Here are a few pictures of the valley via Cochamo.com. If you are a rock-climber, I’ve heard that it’s a dream come true.
