NEWS & BRIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Means the world to me that The Third Hotel made a few lists before the end of 2017:
Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2018 from The Huffington Post.
What to Read When 2018 is Just Around the Corner from The Rumpus.
The Strand’s Buyer Preview: What We’re Most Excited to Read in 2018.
Hello Giggles 19 Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2018.
For most authors, the moment when you see a prospective cover for the first time is both very exciting and a bit fraught. Thankfully I was in wonderful hands with Sarahmay Wilkinson at FSG, whose illustrations are also featured on this site. When FSG’s Work-in-Progress did the cover reveal for The Third Hotel, they included an interview with Sarahmay. I find the creative process for cover designers fascinating and when Sarahmay said that “I tend to start and end on the computer, but the middle is always a mystery”—I also thought hey, that sounds an awful lot like novel writing, that bit about the middle being a mystery.
