Book Event: Barnhill

My book is coming out into the world, and therefore we must have cake! And stories! And questions! And there will be swamp monsters and witches and possibly-murderous paper birds and sorrow eaters and overly-keen young men and dragons with delusions of grandure and young girls who are ever so much more than they think they are.
