I’ve just come back from the Festival du Premier Roman in Chambéry, France – a festival dedicated to debut novels. All the authors at the festival are invited because their books have been chosen by reading groups and students.
Our Endless Numbered Days received the student vote which meant that I got to meet four large groups of students who had been studying my book. I’m going to do a post about my time there soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d show the book covers for Our Endless Numbered Days that some of the students designed, including the winning design, and the one designed by their teacher which I was presented with. I think they’re all amazing. Penguin, Tin House, and all my other publishers take note!
Update: Here’s my post about attending the festival.
