A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

New York! I wanna be a part of it but baby it's cold outside!

TALL STORY is out in the US on the 8th of February!

My UK copy (right) meets its American cousin! They're not as similar as they look. The British version has yellow endpapers and under the dustjacket, a dark blue cover. The American version has a light blue cover and slightly different fonts on the spine. And I am told the American version is bigger by a fraction of a millimeter!
So what is an author to do if she lives way over on the other side of the Atlantic and her transportation budget is only just big enough to pay for a rowboat ... with no oars?!?
