Now I confess that I have not yet read Penny Blubaugh’s BLOOD AND FLOWERS, but I’ve been wanting to every since the sale was announced by the agent we share. It sounded like a great concept, and here’s what Kirkus wrote about it:
“..atmospheric language, arresting “culture mash-up,” unique characters, an alluring overlap of fantasy and reality, and strong themes of family and friendship create a provocative read.”
So now that Calyn’s story is temporaily finished, I’m planning on getting my hands on a copy. There’s a contest going on EMU’s Debuts to win one. For an interview with Penny that features her writing process and her idea for rejection cupcakes, (“Brilliant! Brilliant!” as those cut-out guys in the Guiness commercial would say.) click here.
