Exclusive Cover Reveal: The Seventh Miss Hatfield
We’re delighted to reveal the cover for our July debut, The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano. Anna was only 17 when she wrote this book and I hope that you will be as entranced and impressed with it as I – and the rest of the team here at Orion – were.
This beautiful cover was created and designed by the fantastic Sinem Erkas, and we’re very grateful for her fine work. There’ll be lots more about this book coming out as we near publication – and Anna will be over in the UK to launch the book !
As one of 2014’s Gollancz debuts, we will also be offering the ebook at the reduced price of £1.99 from now until the first week of publication. Look for it to appear on your favourite e-retailer soon!
Who is Miss Hatfield? Elderly neighbour or girl next door . . .Read More
