running out of days

The Invisible Library is still available as an ebook on Amazon at a very reduced rate (just £1.19) until the end of the month. (And it seems to have been selling very well indeed – thank you, anyone who bought it! If I weren’t so very English, I would be running around and going *squee*.)

I’ve been interviewed by Taiara Desirée on the Brazilian website Bloguesia – you can find it here. (In Portuguese, and many thanks to Taiara for the interview and for translating it.)

Otherwise, I’m looking forward to next week’s holiday in Vienna. Reports that I’ve been going demob happy at work and babbling about all the cool stuff I’ll see and do are vastly exaggerated. I only babble a bit. Besides, one of my coworkers is off to Cuba in a few weeks herself. So it’s not as if I’m the only one doing surreptitious holiday research in a spare browser window . . .


I am delighted to be able to say that The Invisible Library is going to be published in Estonia, by Varrak. This is absolutely fantastic. I’m so – well, I’m running out of superlatives here, but I’m absolutely thrilled that my books are being popular not only in English, but in other languages as well.

There is probably personal bias here. My father was a lecturer in French literature before his retirement, so I grew up with the concept of books in other languages as, well, a thing – that they existed, and that the more books that were translated and available to read in all languages, the more we all got out of books in general. So while I’m very pleased that my books are doing well in English-speaking areas, I’m also punching the air and going, “Yes!” whenever I find that they’ll be translated into another language as well.

I’m sure Irene would understand.

In other news: The Invisible Library e-book on continues to be just £1.19, and I think it’s staying that way till the end of the month, so I’ll probably be posting about it again in the near future. The Lost Plot is signed off (signed, sealed, and delivered) and with the publishers in both the UK and the US. Book five . . . is still being worked on. Cats are involved.

For all those being afflicted by any or all of the ongoing hurricanes (from Harvey through to Katia), my sincere sympathy, and I hope you’ll all be okay.
