You've heard the news, right?
Isobelle Carmody has finally posted a release date for the much-awaited conclusion to her Obernewtyn saga, The Red Queen.
We were only alerted to its presence yesterday, but this interview is a great one - in which Isobelle discusses The Obernewtyn Chronicles, what inspired her to write it in the first place, writing for YA and children in general, and that she is thinking about adapting The Obernewtyn Chronicles into a TV series one day.

[strike]Two[/strike] Three teensy bits of news today, both mega-exciting and thus worth documenting here.
Our Penguin contact Felicity has passed us a newly-uploaded video in which Isobelle talks about her writing, drawing and life with her family in the lead up to the much anticipated sixth book in The Obernewtyn Chronicles, 'The Sending', in her beautiful hometown of Apollo Bay.
Our Bloomsbury contact Flora would like to announce the arrival of Obernewtyn.co.uk, the Bloomsbury Publishing website dedicated to the Obernewtyn Chronicles, with information about Isobelle and each of the Ober Chron books, plus links and downloads relating to the Chronicles (similar to Penguin AU's Obernewtyn.com.au).
That's right, we have a confirmed date.
We've just had word from Obernetter and Collins bookseller manager, Ethereal, regarding Isobelle's August talk in Bendigo in which she's sent us full details of the event.
In the lead up to the release of The Sending sometime in September, the Obernet Book Club is hosting a joint re-reading of the Obernewtyn Chronicles.
