Exclusive Cover Reveal: The Seventh Miss Hatfield

We’re delighted to reveal the cover for our July debut, The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano. Anna was only 17 when she wrote this book and I hope that you will be as entranced and impressed with it as I – and the rest of the team here at Orion – were.

This beautiful cover was created and designed by the fantastic Sinem Erkas, and we’re very grateful for her fine work. There’ll be lots more about this book coming out as we near publication – and Anna will be over in the UK to launch the book!

As one of 2014’s Gollancz debuts, we will also be offering the ebook at the reduced price of £1.99 from now until the first week of publication. Look for it to appear on your favourite e-retailer soon!

 Who is Miss Hatfield? Elderly neighbour or girl next door . . .

There’s always been something odd about Cynthia’s next door neighbour, Miss Hatfield. Something beyond the strangely familiar miniature photographs and ramshackle house. And when Miss Hatfield tricks Cynthia into drinking a drop of the Fountain of Youth, she finds herself immortal.

She is the new Miss Hatfield and the next in line to the curse and blessing that is her legacy.

But immortality has a price. Becoming the new Miss Hatfield means letting go of who she was.

Tasked by her predecessor with recovering a mysterious painting, Cynthia finds herself in turn of the century New York. But someone else has followed her . . .

The Seventh Miss Hatfield will be out in bookshops in July. You can follow Anna on Twitter.

Marcus joined Gollancz as an Editor at the beginning of 2011, and is greatly enjoying the chance to work on the kind of books he’s always read. His shelves at home are groaning. Previously, he spent ten years as a bookseller for Blackwell’s, ending up as Sales Manager for their flagship London shop on Charing Cross Road. He lives with his partner, a historian and novelist, and their very small child, who is going to know more about SFF then anyone else at nursery. This may not be a good thing.
