Big Crazy Awesome

In a mad turn of events, I wanted to tell you all that Fairyland has sold to Feiwel & Friends, the YA imprint of Macmillan.

Along with a sequel.

You guys will always be the first adopters--Fairyland Pioneers. Thank you for everything--it's only just beginning.

Also I'm dying to hear what you guys think of Chapter 19 and the Marquess and everything, so consider this your discussion post!

So, i'm blown away. I knew things weren't adding up about Mallow, but... Holy crap.

Poor woman (married! pregnant!) reminds me of the real Dorothy in Was.

And Mallow can't be done with yet...

Yay, congrats on selling Fairyland, that's wonderful news.

I really enjoyed this chapter, it added even more depth to The Marquess, and September as well. I also like the twist, it was surprising when it was revealed, but it fits with what has happened in the story already.

You're freaking brilliant. That's really all I can say about it. In every chapter, there's something that brings tears to my eyes.

Congratulations on Feiwel and Friends! I hope you'll keep us updated on that. :D

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD SQUEE!!!!

How does this affect the serialization? Does it need to stop, or does your contract allow for you to finish the web-publication?

As to Ch.19, I love how you can make me love anyone. You have an understanding of humanity in its intricacies, flaws, and just plain strangeness. It takes great skill to give us a character we can hate and then make us love them and then leave us in the same moral quandry as the protagonist.

Congradulations! But really, no surprise for such an excellent book. . . .

So can we get an icon that says "Fairyland Pioneer Corps"? ^_^

Since I totally didn't see the Marquess/Mallow connection, I am now wondering paranoidly whether there could be any connection between Mallow and September outside of Fairyland.

And oh, Gleam! Her death was heartbreaking.

Yes, I'll be making a special graphic for you all!

Awesome! This is GREAT news! I always hoped that some day this novel will be picked up. My best wishes to you, Catherynne. :-)

About Chapter 19, who would have thought?! But I think it's possible that the Marquess is lying, maybe she isn't Queen Mallow... or is she really? Ugh, I'll go crazy thinking. Nevertheless, curious to know what happens next.

Well, I don't want to read too many of the comments here, because I'm only on chapter 5 and don't want spoilers, but I had to give you a big congratulations!
I only discovered your story very recently, and so far I am loving it. However, a few chapters in I started thinking how nice it would be to have a real book of it to carry around... and now I'll have one!

Also, wondering if the book will be illustrated?

Not sure yet, but likely.
