November 19, 2010I am so looking forward to 'The Mistress of Nothing' coming out in the US. This will be my 'American debut' and I really hope that readers in the US enjoy the book. I'm so pleased to be working with Touchstone, Simon & Schuster.
Publication isn't for another seven weeks.... but the countdown is definitely on!
