It has been a busy two months since we hit 100% as the grand task of novel development with the publisher, editors and the creative team continues. Golden labyrinths are being designed, the story has undergone a professional edit, and whispers of cover designs are being heard. At this stage a publication date is not far from being announced – and here at Talliston we have been busy contacting all the higher level pledgers to start arranging visits, dinners and nights in the Haunted Bedroom. In the next week all the special editions of the Room Atlas, Book of Days and the A0 architectural Room Plans will all be printed and will be winging their way to their new homes.


For those who wish to keep up with peaks into the magical world of The Stranger's Guide, what better way thatn to follow the Instagram pages at #thestrangersguide. Explore the moments of the novel, watch videos and see some of the key items in the story – all beautiful shot and rendered by Eleanor Kiff for the project.


Or perhaps, if you are stuck for a summer holiday location, you could do worse than head for some of the real world locations that inspired the rooms of the house & gardens. Stay in a Norwegian lighthouse or explore the bayous of New Orleans – and experience the magic of the places that are now captured inside the once ordinary house in Essex.
