This Monday, we arrived at the office to find it transformed.
Father Christmas (Giles Milburn) had slaved away his Sunday to transform our work space into a Christmas grotto. In no particular order, we were greeted with tinsel, tree, lights, stars, baubles, stockings, chocolate and window stickers. Safe to say, Christmas has come early at MMLA.
And the Christmas cheer only grew as it was announced today that Madeleine Milburn is once again on the Bookseller 100 most influential people, for the second year in a row. We couldn’t be prouder or more thrilled!
Following that, some of our authors received serious publicity this week.
C.J. Tudor’s The Chalk Man was featured in The Guardian this week as one of the best books of 2018: “Also worth seeking out is The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor (Penguin); there are shades of Stephen King in this very creepy timeslip, as well as an evocative portrait of small-town life in 1980s Britain.”
The US paperback of The Chalk Man will be published on 31st December (pictured above).
C.J.’s chilling next book, The Taking of Annie Thorne will be published in the UK next month.
Gail Honeyman’s multi award-winning novel, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine continues to take the world by storm. It is currently sitting comfortably at No. 2 in the UK and in the New York Times bestseller list.
