Neil sent me his latest book the other day.. The Graveyard book.. It comes out on Halloween in the US..

And it's so hard to say this because I love all his books.. but I think it is my favorite so far.. I absolutely disappeared into it, and l cried when I finished it.. The characters are so real and wonderful.. and the scary bits are really scary.. It's about a boy who grows up in a graveyard, raised by ghosts..

You can follow it and even see the different ideas for the cover on Neil's Journal.. (If you haven't been there already) ;)

I'm off to an interview this morning on Plains fm.. it will be broadcast on Saturday if you want to tune in - 96.9fm :)

The concert at the Yellow cross last night was lovely, very different as the stage is on a mezzanine/balcony type thing and I found myself playing about two meters above the crowd which was strange..

Thank you all for the lovely comments :) Do keep sending :) and any questions too..

-and right now.. you can read Neil Gaiman's novel 'American Gods' online for free..

(it is one of my favorites.. I've given it away at least 15-20 times.. highly recommended)
