Casting out

Always an exciting moment - I've just received advance copies of The Outcast, the third Nergui book, which comes out (I think I might have already mentioned this) on 6 November.  Quercus have gone for a slightly more dramatic cover this time, and I think it looks pretty splendid.

Can't wait! I see what you mean about the cover, quite a different style from the previous two. Loyal readers such as myself won't mind anything on the cover, we'll be reading anyway, but I can see that it is important to attract as many new readers as you can. Good luck!

Thanks, Maxine. I'm pleased with the cover because I think it gives a better sense of the content than the previous ones, attractive as those were. You might also be interested to know that your (very generous) Eurocrime review of 'The Adversary' is quoted on the back, so I imagine Quercus will be winging a copy of this one to you pretty soon! Thanks again for all your support.

Looks good to me, too.

Thanks, Martin - it's certainly very striking!

I totally agree - the cover is fab! Keep an eye on the Ampersand blog as I will be commenting further around publication date!

Thanks, Amy - I'll keep watching the skies (or at least the blog)!
