I'm very excited about the American edition of 'Ghostwritten' which will be published as 'Shadows Over Paradise' by Random House on Tuesday February 10th. It's the first time I've had a change of title for any of my novels, and although it felt a little strange at first I rather like it. It certainly emphasises the wartime part of the story, on Java.
I also love the cover design. The girl could be from the 1940s, or from the present day. The long grass in which she's lying might be in Cornwall, or on Java. The muted tones suggest nightfall and the distant planes add a note of menace. I'll be doing a Giveaway on Facebook, for US readers, starting on Sunday February 8th. On that day I'll also be doing one of my regular chats about fiction and answering any questions you may have about writing and publishing.
Here's a link to my FaceBook Author Page and I hope to see you there!
