French consequences

Here is the cover illustration for my next novel, from my French publishers Lunes d’encre (an imprint of Denoël). The title in English (An American Story) cannot be used in France, as there is a pre-existing book with that title in French. I like the variant title almost as much, as the book is essentially about consequences.

Publication date will be towards the end of this year, but it is hoped that advance copies will be available while I am working in Paris, in September.

An American Story will be published in the UK by Gollancz, on 20 September.

I have recently delivered another book to Gollancz: a narrated short story collection called Episodes. No publication date has yet been agreed.
