Over the next few Fridays, I’ll be posting several times on Mette Ivie Harrison’s upcoming novel, The Bishop’s Wife (to be released December 30 from Soho Press). I know Harrison primarily from her memoir Ironmom (which I haven’t read) and the frequently forgotten fact (only to me) that she writes YA fantasy. This is the first longer work of hers I’ve read.
Instead of writing a long post covering many issues, I’ve decided to write a series of shorter posts covering such topics as exposition, marketing, genre whatnot, and who knows? maybe even a review! A couple posts that seem unfair to post before you’ve had a chance to read the book will post in the new year.
Suffice it to say I think the novel is worth your time and I’ll see you next Friday and the Friday after that and the Friday after that . . . . or maybe every other Friday. We’ll see how it goes.

For what it’s worth, they’re running ads for it in Publishers Weekly. Not a lot of books get that kind of push anymore…
Yeah, I’ll have a whole post touching (but only touching) on that stuff.
When I was at the American Library Association’s conference this summer, it was one of the main books being heavily promoted by Random House. They ran out of ARCs before I got to the booth, but thankfully I’ve been able to snag a review copy since then.
I would love to see it do well.
