"When a book is this ambitious, either it is a thumping success or it falls on its face. Happily, The Actual Star is a stone-cold masterpiece. It is one of the most moving novels I have read and surely a contender for major awards." Welp. 😳 newscientist.com/article/mg2…

publishing: we're *all about* inclusion!...but not willing to pay interns, or living wages, or authors, or do much of anything to ensure that the vast majority of authors without generational wealth or rich spouses can keep writing, good luck to y'all lol

if you’re a little nerdy like me, you’ll jump at the chance to be #500! i would do it but i’ve been a (very happy) patron for years.
Every month I lose a few patrons due to expired credit cards, and so I've been dancing back and forth across the 500-count line. Which is to say: I'm at 499 now, and if you wanna be patron #500, this is your chance 😌 patreon.com/monicabyrne

The very first time I had a chance to “surf the Internet” in 1995, I used it to…look up #WheelofTime content. And print it out. And save it in my diary to reread over and over.

I'm so thrilled by this new rave review in Columbia University's undergraduate magazine! "The Actual Star isn't casual play--it’s powerfully constructed theater, tugging at your wonder, curiosity, and confusion up until the very last word. cuinthemargins.wixsite.com/m…

If you've read The Actual Star and would like to see it adapted into a series, feel free to say so, loudly and often. 😉
