Can't Wait! December 7, 2014

“Blätterrauschen,” will be published in German on February 27 — for readers 11 and up and for fans of “Everlasting.” The wonderful cover was designed by Joachim Knappe. You can lose yourself in it.

 

Something was wrong. It was too quiet. Outside, the leaves on the trees had ceased rustling. The busy chatter of voices in the bookshop beyond the door had died out. Even the clock on the wall had stopped ticking. Oliver had the sudden sensation that someone was standing right behind him, whispering in his ear. He twisted around. ...

 

It’s a stormy autumn afternoon. The “Whispering Leaves” reading club is interrupted by a knock at the bookshop’s back door. Oliver, Iris and Rosa open up ... and begin the adventure of a lifetime. The boy at the door, Colin, is from the future and it takes a while before he understands that he’s not in the middle of a virtual reality game, but has actually been sent back in time to the 21st century. But why? The four children are caught up in a dangerous time warp and soon realize that not only are their own lives at stake, but the future of the world too!

Nieskończoność September 14, 2013

 

 

Look what I discovered this week online: the cover

for the Polish edition of "Infinitissimo", set to be released

by Egmont early November. The title is a mouthful — but it

means none other than "Everlasting.” ... I'm so much looking forward to the Polish readers. Fantastyczny!

Infinitely Infinitissimo April 28, 2013

Hot off the press in Mexico: Infinitissimo, brought to you by the folks from Planeta/Destino. Now, is that a great book for you or your girlfriend, boyfriend, mother, uncle or Spanish teacher or for anyone you know and appreciate who reads Spanish, or what? Absolutely! I’m so excited about the Spanish-language publication of my novel, known in Germany as Everlasting — Der Mann, der aus der Zeit fiel. And just think: the book only costs $248 … uh … Mexican Pesos, of course, not dollars. Whew! (Why do they use the dollar sign for pesos?) It can be found and ordered in all good bookshops in Mexico, for example at gandhi.com.mx.
