So, it seems my publishers have decided to bring out The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood in hardback! I’m very excited about this because it’s my first ever hardback book, And it looks like it’s going to be absolutely beautiful. I was a bit worried about the price, because many hardbacks cost twice or three times what the paperback costs, but this will be 12.99, so just about doable If you don’t want to wait for the paperback, which will be out towards the end of 2019. I’ll let you know as soon as I have the exact date. But in the meantime, here’s the gorgeous hardback jacket. You can preorder the book here

But Marjorie’s memory is failing fast and she can’t recall what she wanted to say. Eleanor knows time is running out, and as she tries to gently uncover the truth before it becomes lost inside her mother’s mind forever, she begins to discover what really happened when she was a child – and why…

The German edition of The Things We Never Said Is published by Aufbau under the title, Ich Habe Dich Immer Geliebt, which translates as: I Have Always Loved You. I quite like the cover which is similar to the English version in that it shows a woman by the sea, and we can’t see her face (or in this case, her head!)
