The Pagoda Tree has landed!

So, here it is, the big reveal! The book that you all funded and helped made real now exists, it’s real, it’s gorgeous and the rich red-wine cover invites you in. Thank you so much for your patience and support.

I spent yesterday afternoon signing books at the Unbound offices in London and they will be on their way to you very soon. I can't wait to hear what you think. And by the way, they look even better 'in the flesh'. The gold leafing stands out and the inside is beautifully textured

If you’re on social media, please share a photo of you with the novel using the hashtag: #UnboundPagodaClub. The more exotic the locale, the better ; )

To show my appreciation, I’d like to offer you more special Unbound supporter goodies. Email me at to find out more.

And lastly, don't forget. Tomorrow night is LAUNCH night at Daunt Books. The fund starts at 6.30pm... and a virtuouso violinist from India, Nandini Muthuswamy, is flying in for the event. Hope to see you there. If you are coming and haven't let me know, RSVP to the above address.
