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: May 18th will see the publication of the UK paperback of Everything Love Is.
Here is the beautiful jacket artwork for the UK paperback edition. Thank you so much to the authors who have read this book and said such lovely things about it: 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.
If I’m honest there’s been less enthusiasm from retailers than we might have hoped, but the good thing about this kingfisher is even if you don’t spot him around and about, you can always place an order. 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 by Skype or Uber conference, to answer your questions. You can find a few ideas for discussion points to get you started over on the Bibliomaniac site here .
