Hild: 12 November 2013

This is the seventh draft of Hild. It is the version you will read (after some copyediting). It will be published in the US on 12th November by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

At this stage I don’t know when it will be published in the UK, or by whom. I’m guessing I’ll have a notion of that in three or four months. Stay tuned.

Hild is a big book: 207,000 words. Depending on book design and typeface that could translate to anything from 650 to 800 bound pages. Just the thing to curl up with before the fire and lose yourself in Hild’s world as the wind howls and the hail beats on the window. That’s my goal: an immersive read that is so physically, emotionally, and intellectually convincing that you feel as though you’ve lived another’s life alongside your own.

I can’t wait to get it into your hands. I’ll keep you updated every step of the way.
