The first six books in the Septimus Heap series are going to be rejacketed this summer in the UK. Below is the first cover. What do you think?
Katherine Tegen, Angie’s editor at HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen Books, posted this picture on Facebook, with a nice comment.
I’ve spent days and days on editing FYRE—and I’ve been having a great time. It’s a fantastic finale to the Septimus Heap series! Here’s a hard copy of the manuscript with all of my post-its. I always work on a print-out of a manuscript, because that’s how I’ve done it for so many years. The post-its are places where I need to go back and see if my comment still makes sense, once I’ve read the entire manuscript, or to see if a thread was woven back into the story later on. Look for FYRE in Winter 2013.
NOTE: Winter 2013 means January of February 2013!
Back again, at last… Fyre took everything over for the last few months, but I sent it to my lovely editor, Katherine, two days ago and am waiting to hear what she thinks! Then I will have another look at it in a few weeks, when I have had a little bit of space to sort things out in my head.
So, I will be back answering questions next week – but before then I am off to the Lit Fest inCologne! I will be there this Sunday, 18th March at 3pm in the Commedia Theatre, talking about Darke. I will be reading in English and with David Fermer reading in German. www.litcologne.de
