Spring has come around at last, and the canal here is bursting back to life, although I haven’t seen the flash of the kingfishers along the towpath for a while.
Here’s another shy little kingfisher that you might see around if you’re lucky: It’s the paperback of Everything Love Is, launched on May 18th (a few keen eyes have already spotted it in bookshops around the UK). Here is the beautiful jacket artwork for the UK paperback edition:
I’m really glad that David Mann’s design from the hardback has been kept with just a few tweaks – look at that spine!
By the time a paperback goes to press, a lot more people have been involved in helping it along the way than those thanked in the original acknowledgements. So I want to take the opportunity here to shout out a big thank you to some more of you!
I’m very grateful to the authors who have read this book and said such lovely things about it. Thank you to Joanna Cannon whose words you see on the front, and also Vanessa Gebbie, Paul McVeigh and Katie Fforde whose kind words are on the back of the jacket. I’m so proud for this little book to carry the names of such wonderful writers.
Thank you also to the wonderful book bloggers who have been supporting this book since its launch last July. Your support is really appreciated. We are going to make a bit of a splash around social media this week with these e-cards, and I’ve added clickable links to the reviews below.
Thank you too to everyone else who has left a review on a retail site or blog. These are for you:
And here are some thank you sunflowers to the book shops who have been supporting the hardback over the last year:
There’s a lot in this story for book clubs to get stuck into, so do bear in mind that I’m always happy to show up at your book club discussions virtually to answer your questions. You can find a few ideas for discussion points to get you started over on the Bibliomaniac site here and a reading guide will be available here soon.
