Advance Starglass Kudos (and a new look for phoebenorth.com!)

Good evening, lovelies! As you can see, I’ve revamped the website yet again–feels like I change my website almost as often as I change my hair. But I’m much happier with it now. It’s both better organized and louder. I wanted something a little more reflective of my personality, and what says “Phoebe” better than doodles and exploding sparkles?

Space Katz, maybe?

Feel free to click around, as there’s some new content, too–including some supplementary (but non-spoilery) materials for Starglass called “Notes on the Asherah (scroll down to the middle of the page). These notes will make more sense for those of you who have read the book. I know that’s not many of you right now, but since the book went up on Edelweiss, there seems to be more with each passing day.

And I’m proud to say that, as of today, I’ve been given the okay to announce that my little book can count four very awesome authors among its fans. I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you the blurbs Starglass has received:

STARGLASS is a richly imagined, beautifully written book. It’s science fiction, mystery, and coming of age story all wrapped into one; creative but also firmly grounded in a real human experience, with all its loss, pain, and disillusionment—but also beauty, hope, and belonging. A wonderful story.

—#1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth

STARGLASS is a poignantly written, gripping tale. I just loved it. I really enjoyed the themes of political intrigue, the depth of the characters, the suspense, and the twists and turns, all with the backdrop of space and interstellar travel, which I love. It all felt so original.

—James Dashner, bestselling author of the Maze Runner trilogy

Murder, rebellion, and spaceships done right: Phoebe North’s STARGLASS gave me the best kind of chills. I can’t wait to see what the sequel has in store.

—Jodi Meadows, author of Incarnate

Immersive and compelling, STARGLASS is sci-fi with both brains and heart. Terra’s search for belonging and authentic human connection is one to savor.

—Lenore Appelhans, author of Level 2

I can’t tell you how flattered and touched I am that Veronica, James, Jodi and Lenore took the time to read Starglass–and, more, that they liked it enough to share such kind and lovely words. Thank you all so much!

      Sadly, that picture is kinda old. I dyed my hair black to keep myself from damaging it anymore. MISS MY BLUE HAIR!
