The author of The Demon’s Lexicon, Sarah Rees Brennan, has a blog that I follow faithfully. Found on livejournal – Sarahtales – you should all run, not walk, to read her updates. Sarah’s blog writing is both absolutely hilarious and yet serious at the same time. And of course, you should check out The Demon’s Lexicon if you haven’t already (proper review to follow later tonight or tomorrow).
In her latest post, Sarah mentions her new idea of releasing a short story each week that sales of The Demon’s Lexicon reach a certain number. This week, her short story is The Arundel Tomb and it’s brilliant. It focuses on characters from, and mentioned in, The Demon’s Lexicon – but it’s not necessary to have read the book to enjoy the short story. If you’ve yet to read anything by Sarah Rees Brennan, this short story would be a good way to introduce yourself to her writing style. Give it a try, you might just like it =)
