While I have been busy here editing my third novel, and working on ideas for a fourth, I recently heard that THE GIRL WHO CAME HOME will be published in Slovakia, which is lovely news! I was also thrilled to see the Hungarian edition of the book released last week. The title translates as ‘Sea Waves’. Here is the cover:
I heard about the Hungarian offer way back in 2014, so it is lovely to finally see the book available, and as my first foreign translation, it is especially exciting.
In other news, I have seen the cover and interior design pages for the U.S. edition of THE GIRL FROM THE SAVOY. Once again the team at William Morrow have done the most amazing job and I can’t wait to share their creations with you all soon. The description of the novel is now showing on the book’s Amazon page, and the novel is also ranked highly in a Goodreads Historical Fiction 2016 listing. If you would like to add the book to your Goodreads ‘Want To Read’ list, or would like to add your vote to the listing, you can do so here.
With Remembrance Sunday just past, and today being the anniversary of Armistice Day, my contribution to WW1 anthology FALL OF POPPIES has been on my mind. Having researched the Great War in detail for my short story, HUSH, and having recently been given a packet of letters my great-grandmother wrote to her son who went missing in action during WWII, the poppy day service and events have felt particularly poignant this year. I love this image which fellow Fall of Poppies contributor, and editor, Heather Webb created:
Lots happening, and lots more to share over the coming weeks and months!
