Don’t you love the retro cover? I told my American editor I’d really like the bike, and she’s promised to ship it over, but publication date was April 25 2011, and I’m still waiting…..But I decided I needed to see my first US publication for myself, so I headed to New York just to stand and look at it on the shelves of all those funky bookstores. Of course I also found time to be a tourist – I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, took a boat out to Ellis Island (and waved at the Statue of Liberty on my way), did a little shopping – well, you have to, don’t you? – and strolled through Central Park on a lovely sunny afternoon. Bliss!
