30th March 2014: UK Finnikin and a classic Alibrandi


Walker Books in the UK will be releasing The Lumatere Chronicles starting in July this year with Finnikin of the Rock.  Being published in the UK has been a long time coming so I’m pretty excited about this trilogy being released there.  I spent time at Conwy castle in Wales and Rochester Castle in Kent, as well as Guernsey which is kind of part of the UK, researching Froi of the Exiles and Quintana of Charyn with my dear friend Barbara who lives in Ireland.  Our three day road trips would squeeze in about a year’s long gossip and TV talk and life talk, so you could imagine that there wasn’t a moment of silence. The trilogy means that much more to me because of our time together.

As you can see, the UK cover borrows from the Australian and the US paperback.  I think this image  comes out stunning in any form or colour.
