Today the audiobook version of If I Die Before I Wake was recorded – exciting times!
The actor cast to read as Alex is Finlay Robertson, whose voice or face you may recognise from scores of other acting gigs on TV, stage, radio and other audiobooks including Pat Barker’s Life Class trilogy. He’s an excellent choice – I can’t wait to hear the finished product! Continue reading
I had some very exciting post today – finished copies of If I Die Before I Wake!
They look fantastic. I’ve had my hands on quite a few proof copies so far, but they look quite different to these.
If I Die Before I Wake by Emily Koch
This week I had my first public appearance talking about If I Die Before I Wake – at an event at Cheltenham Literature Festival.
It all went really well. I couldn’t have asked for better company on stage, being interviewed by Caroline Sanderson alongside Imogen Hermes Gowar and Mary Lynn Bracht. Their excellent debuts are also out in January – Imogen’s The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock is a hilarious 18th century romp about a widower, a courtesan and a grotesque mermaid; Mary’s White Chrysanthemum is a heartbreaking but beautiful story about Korean sisters separated by war. It was interesting to have three such different books being discussed in the same event.
Bound proofs and e-book versions of If I Die Before I Wake have been going out over the last few weeks to reviewers and bloggers, and the verdicts are coming in. It’s a terrifying process but so far I’m really pleased with the comments people have made – and I can’t really be unhappy with a 4.5 star average on Goodreads! Continue reading
Ten gorgeous copies of the bound proofs of If I Die Before I Wake have arrived on my doorstep.
The team at my publishers Harvill Secker have been working hard and we finally have a design for If I Die Before I Wake‘s cover.
I’m so pleased with it – I think it’s an excellent mix of being terrifying and beautiful… with a bit of the surreal thrown in for good measure.
