Well, Anna is here!  She’s in a book!  And you can meet her.

THIS  BOOK.  I’m not even sure I can explain about this book, and what it means.  I’ll write more later, about how this book came to be. Honestly, I still can’t believe it’s happening!

But the short version is that the text is a collaboration, between myself and my childhood-self.  Because as a little girl I was obsessed with Anna Pavlova.  I scribbled about her, decades ago. And now?

I guess I still am obsessed.

SWAN will be coming from the fabulous  folks at Chronicle (my first book with them!), in August.  If you’re at TLA this week, you should swing by the booth and meet Anna in person.  Some very exciting things (that I’m not at liberty to discuss) are already happening to her!  But I’ll tell you about them later, I promise.

Meanwhile, check out Anna’s pinterest page of stunning photos and ephemera, “like” her Facebook page, for book news and Pavlova-tidbits, add her to your Goodreads list, or preorder the book from one of several handy places.

I can’t wait to show you more!
