The 11th November, Armistice Day. But also the feast of St Martin, and a day credited with changing the course of Descartes’ life in 1619. The 11th crops up again and again, something Descartes can’t quite seem to shake off.
It’s a date that is significant for me – UK rights to my novel The Words in My Hand, have sold to Two Roads books. My book will be published in hardbook in 2016 (and reported in today’s The Bookseller). The novel will also be translated into German after rights were sold at the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair to Ullstein.
Germany and the UK – I am very happy with that!
