Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Just received the cover design for the Swedish pocket edition. Another variation on a theme – very nice!


The kindness of Finland

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

The Finnish cover for The Kindness of Your Nature РKaikki Hyvä Sinussa Рhas just arrived. I am very, very pleased with how it looks.
As an excerp for the back of the cover, the following passage has been chosen:
“Here, I realised that the darkness was not absolute. From up there on the deck the sea had been one with the surrounding darkness. But now I saw a multitude of shifting grey hues, as manifold as the most colourful landscape.”

Publication is scheduled for March 2012.
Publisher Gummerus
Translation Anuirmeli Sallamo-Lavi

I am grateful to the team who has looked after my books so very well in Finland, and I hope this release will make us all proud.
