I feel that it’s important to fail now and again. For instance, if I go for a job and I don’t get it, that makes me not a better person, but more balanced, more aware of what life is really like. Romola Garai

Walker Books in the UK will be releasing The Lumatere Chronicles starting in July this year with Finnikin of the Rock. Being published in the UK has been a long time coming so I’m pretty excited about this trilogy being released there. I spent time at Conwy castle in Wales and Rochester Castle in Kent, as well as Guernsey which is kind of part of the UK, researching Froi of the Exiles and Quintana of Charyn with my dear friend Barbara who lives in Ireland. Our three day road trips would squeeze in about a year’s long gossip and TV talk and life talk, so you could imagine that there wasn’t a moment of silence. The trilogy means that much more to me because of our time together.
As you can see, the UK cover borrows from the Australian and the US paperback.  I think this image  comes out stunning in any form or colour.

"Why do men feel threatened by women?” I asked a male friend of mine. (I love that wonderful rhetorical device, “a male friend of mine.” It’s often used by female journalists when they want to say something particularly bitchy but don’t want to be held responsible for it themselves. It also lets people know that you do have male friends, that you aren’t one of those fire-breathing mythical monsters, The Radical Feminists, who walk around with little pairs of scissors and kick men in the shins if they open doors for you. “A male friend of mine” also gives—let us admit it—a certain weight to the opinions expressed.) So this male friend of mine, who does by the way exist, conveniently entered into the following dialogue. “I mean,” I said, “men are bigger, most of the time, they can run faster, strangle better, and they have on the average a lot more money and power.” “They’re afraid women will laugh at them,” he said. “Undercut their world view.” Then I asked some women students in a quickie poetry seminar I was giving, “Why do women feel threatened by men?” “They’re afraid of being killed,” they said."
