It has a publisher. It has an editor. It has a title. It has enough notes to justify it’s own lever-arch file.* What it unfortunely doesn’t have yet is permission to tell you about itself until the ink has dried on the contract, which should be in a month or two. To keep you going until then: it’s an idea I’ve been mulling for around three years, it’s a single story, it’s historical (naturally) and I can’t wait to share more details when I can.
I’m also not able to share the American cover of The Golden Thread, because it doesn’t have one yet, but I can confirm that it will be unleashed to American readers later this year courtesy of Liveright. It is also currently being translated into German, Romanian, Russian, Mandarin, Italian, Korean and Spanish! Huge thanks to those of you who have emailed me to tell me you’re reading it and to share the bits you’ve loved, the sections you’ve found surprising, and your own textile tales.
That’s it from me for now, but, as ever, I wanted to share below a few of the things that have caught my attention over past few weeks, as well as some of the pieces that I’ve worked on. Enjoy!
