A few months ago US publisher Catalyst Press bought the international rights to all three books in my Elevation trilogy. It’s now renamed the Fiery Spiral trilogy, and we’ve just finished editing and extending book one, The Thousand Steps.
The Fiery Spiral Book 1 It’s been a really interesting process. I’m used to writing for younger readers, where pace and action matter more than description, so it’s been challenging to adapt my style to older readers who want to know more about the setting and development of even minor characters. Here’s the cover for the US edition. I think it’s gorgeous – showing the four amulets in the centre, surrounded by the fynbos typical of the Western Cape, which features prominently in the book. It’s designed by fellow South African, Karen Vermeulen.
