(The Younger Man) and.. Peter FitzSimons.. (Eureka).. Here we are after deciding it would be a lot more fun to promote someone else's book for a while:.. And here, if you're in the mood for some futher bookish merriment, is the segment itself:.. Kate Morton.. |.. 3 Comments.. Share Article.. Email Article.. 04.. Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 2:41PM.. Things I did in the UK, in no particular order.. ***.. Went to the National Portrait Gallery and saw, among other treasures, Branwell Brontë's painting of his three sisters, complete with the crease marks from where the second wife of Charlotte Brontë's husband (are you still with me?) found it, folded and stored, at the back of an old wardrobe.. (Oh, but.. how.. that detail belongs in a story! I especially love Branwell's own ghostly form looming behind the others.. ).. Talked to the lovely Dan Lewis of the Waterstones blog.. Our chat took place in a little cheese shop in Kensington that was really very charming (we were sitting on bales of hay), and included topics like writing, life's big questions, and the ghosts that live inside my dad's old pub.. Drank tea and ate scones in the glorious V A tearoom, all the while hatching plans to take up secret residence in the nineteenth-century wing.. All I ask is for a ceiling like this one.. what? Too much?.. Made the requisite pilgrimage to.. Persephone Books.. on Lamb's Conduit Street in Bloomsbury.. As you can see, it was as perfect as ever.. Signed an awfully big pile of Secret Keepers on a visit to my publishers at Pan Macmillan.. (Don't they look just lov-er-ly en masse?!).. Travelled to Oswestry, Shropshire, to attend an afternoon tea event with the brilliant and beautiful.. bôôka bookshop.. (Apologies again to those who were trying to eat cake while I read aloud the rather dramatic and shocking first chapter ending of Secret Keeper!).. Here's the bôôka manifesto:.. And here's the lovely shop itself:.. Went to Windsor.. to visit the Queen.. to speak at a Christmas showcase for independent booksellers (and you know how much I love.. independent booksellers.. ) along with the delightful Judith Kerr, author of When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and The Tiger Who Came to Tea.. Oh, and just for good measure I went to visit.. Hogwarts.. 4 Comments.. Friday.. Nov.. 30.. Friday, November 30, 2012 at 1:29PM.. Daunt Books, Marylebone High Street.. I've spent my whole life dreaming about being locked inside a place like this.. Haven't you?.. I've just returned home after five weeks touring.. The Secret Keeper.. in the UK, Germany, the US, Canada and Australia, and have consequently had the pleasure of visiting a number of fabulous bookstores and meeting the (always incredibly hard-working and passionate) human captains steering them through the sometimes choppy waters of the digital age.. Many writers have stories about the person in their formative years who handed them the right book at the right time and it just so happens that mine was a bookseller.. His name was Herbert Davies and I've written about him.. before.. in this journal.. Here's a little piece I wrote some time ago about his influence on my reading habits and, thereby, my life.. I ve always been a reader.. I read, voraciously, long before I ever entertained ideas about becoming a writer, and I wasn t fussy.. Black print on a white page was pretty much the only specification I had sure, a magic faraway tree or a set of chipper English school children solving mysteries and devouring tins of condensed milk improved matters, but I d make do without.. I.. needed.. to read.. I didn t know what else to do with myself.. I still don t.. A book before school, a book afterwards, in the bath, in the car, in the boughs of avocado trees, in front of the television.. I d read the back of the telephone bill if it was all I had in front of me.. This is Herbert before I met him (you might recognise him as the inspiration for the description of Mr Snelgrove, the Cecil Court bookseller whom Nell encounters in chapter 13 of The Forgotten Garden?).. Then, when I was ten, something changed.. I met my  ...   the top of the faraway tree.. There are countless others who value the experience of disappearing amongst beautiful books in bricks and mortar shops run by expert booksellers: the sort who read and think, who love and promote books, who know that what they re selling is so much more than a bound set of pages.. These are the people who put books in the hands of children and parents and those for whom the choice of what to read may seem daunting.. Frontline soldiers in the battle for literacy.. And having seen the faces of my son s classmates light up when I read them.. The Enchanted Wood.. last year, I know that s a battle well worth fighting.. ***.. And here, because I can't help myself, for your listening pleasure a small sample of Under Milk Wood (obtained very easily in the age of youtube.. nowhere near as romantic as the rummaging through dusty boxes that Herbert had to undertake in order to find the cassette he played for me).. 2 Comments.. Thursday.. Jul.. 26.. Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 9:57PM.. Australian cover, Allen Unwin.. I've been longing to write about the new book for ages, and now, having sent the manuscript off to the typesetter this week, I finally can.. I've written before about how it feels to finish a novel (.. here.. , for instance), but looking back at that earlier post, I have to tell you this one felt very different.. Oh, the final days of writing passed, once again, in a blur of words and ideas and pictures in my head and fingers that wouldn't type fast enough and -- I admit it -- tears when some of my most-loved characters reached the ends of their journeys; but writing Secret Keeper was such a joyous experience.. Of course there were periods during its composition when I felt utterly confuddled and couldn't make the puzzle pieces fit together, but I'm learning.. UK cover, Mantle.. that's just part and parcel of this wonderful, frustrating, exhilarating book-writing thing.. There were times, too, of enormous thrill.. When things just.. worked.. , or threads I hadn't expected to belong together surprised me, or really difficult sections finally came right.. Most of all though, this book reminded me what I love about writing.. Not just writing, but.. storytelling.. It reminded me that I write because there is nothing on earth I love more than disappearing inside the world of a made-up story.. And The Secret Keeper is a.. story.. Those have always been my favourite types of books.. It's a mystery with a big old secret at its heart and characters whom I love.. It will be published in the UK and US in October 2012, Australia and New Zealand in November 2012, and I'm excited to say I'll be touring in each country through October and November (with a whistlestop visit to Frankfurt, too).. Tour dates and locations to come as soon as I have them, along with publication details for everywhere else.. US cover, Atria.. And now, to the story.. 1961:.. On a sweltering summer's day, while her family picnics by the stream on their Suffolk farm, sixteen-year-old Laurel hides out in her childhood tree house dreaming of a boy called Billy, a move to London, and the bright future she can't wait to seize.. But before the idyllic afternoon is over, Laurel will have witnessed a shocking crime that changes everything.. 2011:.. Now a much-loved actress, Laurel finds herself overwhelmed by shades of the past.. Haunted by memories, and the mystery of what she saw that day, she returns to her family home and begins to piece together a secret history.. A tale of three strangers from vastly different worlds--Dorothy, Vivien and Jimmy--who are brought together by chance in wartime London and whose lives become fiercely and fatally entwined.. (I held this post back briefly while I waited until I had all three covers to share with you.. Aren't they beautiful? So different, and yet each one captures a different aspect of the story.. Do you have a favourite?).. 83 Comments.. Saturday.. Mar.. 17.. Saturday, March 17, 2012 at 8:40PM.. Hola, Spanish readers!.. was released in Spain and parts of South America in March (and went straight to #1.. Thank you all for trusting me to tell you a good story.. ) I can't wait to get back to Spain; I had such a brilliant time in Madrid on my last tour.. It was my last stop on a long programme and I was pretty tired when I arrived.. The glorious people I met, the wonderful food I ate, the incredible beauty of the place completely revived me.. *.. The Suma cover is one of my favourites of any of my books anywhere in the world.. There's something so beautiful and vulnerable and mysterious about her, isn't there?.. Isn't she lovely?.. PS Readers of Spanish can talk about my books (or whatever else takes your fancy, I expect).. 11 Comments.. Page.. 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. 5.. 7.. Next 5 Entries »..

  • Title: Kate Morton Website - JOURNAL - The Book Circle
    Descriptive info: Main.. Bits and pieces from the Secret Keeper tour, Part I.. Reader Comments (3).. Dear Ms.. Morton,.. How I love reading your wonderful books! I am an avid reader and look forward to your new books.. I have just finished reading your book, The.. Secret Keeper.. It was thrilling, especially the twists and turns that it took.. There was one question that I could not answer and gave my book to.. my friend to see if, after reading the book, which, by the way, she loved and gave you another admirer, but she could not answer the question either.. So, we decided to write to you and ask you, the wonderful writer, the question.. After so many years, how did Vivian s husband know where to find her? She had covered herself so well and we cannot find in the book a clue as.. to how he found out where she lived and that it was Dolly and not her that died?.. To help us sleep at night, we both would appreciate an answer.. I don t think you would want to display the answer on your website and give away.. the major  ...   can spin such a wonderful mystery.. The bad part is it was hard to put the book down and I finished it.. You just want the story to go on.. That is the way with all of your books.. Looking so forward to reading your next.. January 29, 2013 |.. Richard.. Dear Kate, I was given The Distant Hours by a friend to read during my convalescence after some surgery.. And I loved it.. and am so happy to have discovered you as an author with other titles I can read too.. I should be thoroughly convalesced by the time I read your other titles! I have a question though.. Why did Tom and Juniper not travel together down to Milderhurst from London that fateful night.. It doesn t make sense to me that they would be living together in London but make their separate ways back to the castle for dinner that night.. Kind regards Fiona.. May 27, 2013 |.. Fiona Mack..
