Two October events scheduled

August 21, 2009

Readings and signing scheduled at two of my favorite Seattle region bookstores ... Oct. 15 at Parkplace Books in Kirkland and Oct. 19 at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. Both are at 7p.m. Booksellers at both places have been so nice in the past year they've turned into good friends I like to visit even if I don't really need to buy any books at the moment. Patti and the ladies at Queen Anne Books are the same. It's a good reminder to support your local independent book store.

"Guernica" paperback in US

August 5, 2009

First, thanks to all who have left comments on the weblog. Great to hear from you.

Not much news to report other than the fact that the U.S. paperback edition (Bloomsbury) is scheduled to be out in the first week of September. The last that I heard, they had decided to keep the cover relatively unchanged. I'm happy with that decision as I like the moody, atmospheric colors.

Since you're at this site now, you might be interested in checking out the "works" page to see the various covers from different territories. Whenever a new one is published, I'm always amazed at how creative designers are able to take the same book and come up with such different interpretations for a cover they believe will capture both the readers' attention, and the essence of the subject.

Curious if anybody has any preferences among those displayed. Feel free to leave comments with your favorites.
