I’m taking a break from writing FAQs (they’ll be back next week) because I have 2 things to say today. The first is:
OMG! OMG! LOOK! AT! THIS!
Walker Books have completely redesigned the covers for The Agency. I can now share with you the new artwork for the second book in the trilogy, THE BODY AT THE TOWER, which will be published in the UK next year.
I can’t decide what I like best: the period-perfect font? The way the Houses of Parliament are backlit to just the right degree of spooky/familiar? The “aged” effect around the edges? Maybe it’s just the sum total. In any case, I’m thrilled to bits (as if that wasn’t quite obvious.) And the designer, Patrick Insole (who did the cover for SPY, too), kept the old logo in the bottom right hand corner – YAY!
My second announcement today is that my friend Sarah is a genius. Specifically, she’s a paranoid-yet-deeply-rational genius who’s created a website that displays the contents of her brain in a terrifying yet witty manner. She is The Catastrophizer and I suggest you study with her forthwith.
