Exciting update on my new book Phoenix! It's now just two months until publication, and we sent the final files to the printers this week – so I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to post the front cover here!
Hasn't Dave McKean done an incredible job?! Just wait till you see the interior art! I'll be posting some in the not-too-distant future, along with more updates, sneak previews, and announcements about events... In the meantime, please share this image (there are buttons below for facebook, twitter etc), and help to spread the word!
I can't wait.
Thank you! I can't wait either - this book took nearly seven years to write; it's hard to believe it's actually going to be out there at last!!!
What a cover. So excited to read it!
Wow, thanks so much Julie - that means a lot! I'll ask them to send you an advance copy!
WOW! Congratulations, SF! It's so very exciting! The cover looks great, reminds me for some reason of Silver Surfer (could be the body shape), but I'm sure it's packed with exciting things inside. You must be VERY thrilled. :)
Thanks Alexa! I am VERY thrilled indeed! And I know what you mean about the Silver Surfer - some of the interior art reminds me of that too; I guess the Silver Surfer sets the standard for human figures flying through space!
Dear SF Said
Tell me, phoenix book will be translated into Russian?
Hi Ivan! I hope it will be translated into Russian, but the rights haven't been sold yet as far as I know. Maybe if you write to the Russian publishers of Varjak Paw, telling them that you'd like to read Phoenix in Russian, they'll be more likely to do it?
Would LOVE an advance copy! Will see if I can do something for Scottish press and definitely on our DEMENTION group blog. Just tweeted a link to this. Exciting!
Looks really great, can't wait to read it. I'm happy I found your blog!

Yay! Thanks so much again Julie - that would be beyond brilliant, and totally appreciated!!!
Hopefully advance copies will turn up in early July - fingers crossed!
Wow, thank you so much for your lovely comment, Haddock! I'm glad you found my blog too!
May I just ask you a question? Did you come across my books in translation, or in English?
I read Varjak Paw in Danish. I when bought the second book on Amazon, because the second book isn't translated into Danish.
I contacted the publisher to hear why. They told me that the book had sold very little – Such a shame.
Ah, that is a shame! I hope Phoenix will do better – please spread the word to anyone who you think might be interested!
And thank you for letting me know, I really appreciate it.
WOW! I CANT BELIEVE YOU'RE PUBLISHING A NEW BOOK! I actually grew up reading and admiring the illustraions of Varjak Paw back in primary school. I also stumbled upon your blog today while wondering if there was a third book to the series. I'm pretty excited a new book is coming up :D

Hi Nysha! Thank you so much for that fantastic comment! It's great to hear from you, and great to hear that Varjak Paw has fans in Singapore!
I hope you'll enjoy Phoenix too - I think it's the best thing I've written so far, and I'm very excited about it... so could I ask you to please pass the news on to anyone you know who might be interested? Thanks!
