Blurbs and other fun stuff

Fun book stuff is starting to happen! Petty Magic recently got a couple of lovely blurbs from two of my favorite authors:

A charming curiosity shop of a novel, packed to bursting with secret histories and glittering marvels. With Petty Magic, Camille DeAngelis has given us a glimpse into a strange and enchanting world. It’s dangerous good fun, and well worth getting lost in.
Jedediah Berry, author of The Manual of Detection

Love, magic, history, witches: it’s all here, between the covers of this lovely book. Updike might have written it, if he’d had a better sense of humor.
Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish and Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician

(Also, in case you missed it, you might want to read my post about how Daniel has inspired me.)

The other exciting thing is this profile published Thursday in my local newspaper, the Burlington County Times! [Edit, 2013: alas, no longer online.]

I’m also working with the designer of these two fabulous websites to come up with a brand-new blog; more about that later.

    These blurbs are wonderful, and I loved the profile of you! I am thrashing in my chair in impatience for October, when I can at long last read your new novel! Congrats on all the great things in the works!

    Awesome blurbs!

    Yesterday, Anne said, "I read the article about your sister. Very cool. Here she is publishing her second book, and what have I done? Nothing. She puts us all to shame."

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
