Lost & Found - printed & bound!

I'm delighted to let you all know that Lost & Found has been printed and is now a 3-dimensional reality. I'm so proud of how it has turned out, and I can't wait for you to have your own books to hold. To whet your appetite, here's the moment the advance copies arrived on my own kitchen table!

A few exciting things need to happen before Unbound can send yours out to you: I'll be heading into London in early August to sign the books. Phoebe and Unbound are working on producing the original artwork, the digital prints and indeed the pendant moons for the pledge levels. Once that's all done, copies will be sent out to you – most likely in the second half of August and certainly before the books hit bookshops on 15 September.

I will also be in touch about the discussion events, the workshops and the book groups.  I want to give you a chance to read the tales before we all meet up - so I'm looking at September dates for all of the above.

Thank you all so much for your continued support and for helping to make Lost & Found a reality.

Can't wait. This will be my first book group as an adult. Can't really remember what went on while a teen in the 70s and 80s.
Retired now and ready to enjoy.

So wonderful to finally be close to receiving these tales.

We would be honoured to have your visit Talliston House & Gardens if you are in this neck of the mystical woods.

Elizabeth, sharing your journey to publication has been enlightening. Lost & Found will establish your credentials as a guardian of folklore storytelling. Waiting in anticipation for my copy.

Dear all,

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments - and apologies for the delayed response. I was at BlueDot festival over the weekend and am only now catching up!

I am so excited to be able to share the book with you all very soon (and indeed the book club, Bobby!) None of this would have been possible without your kind support, and it really is very much appreciated.

Hi, Elizabeth. Sorry to be late to the party-I expect you're busy with book signings and agreeing on the artwork. I am delighted to have the opportunity to read your new collection of tales which will, I am sure, be excellent. I would love to attend one of your workshops-will you be doing any online? Also, I will enjoy discussing your book with the Book Group. Slan! E.M.

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for the kind words and for your support of the book- not long to wait now! I am currently signing away and getting ready to ship. So, I'm afraid that the reward level for the Folktales writing workshop is now closed. However, I will be doing some publicity events - talks, readings, collaborations - over the next couple of months. I will be sure to let supporters know!
