Coming in October: The Clockwork Crow

Coming in October: The Clockwork Crow

My next novel The Clockwork Crow will be published by Firefly Books in October. We’re still finalizing the cover, but when it’s ready I’ll put it up for everyone to see.

Here’s the link for Firefly’s announcement.

Magical middle grade adventure coming soon from Catherine Fisher …
The book is for children rather than Young Adult, and is set in a snowy Wales at Christmas time. It has a deserted railway station, a mysterious parcel, a rather tetchy Crow and the spirited Seren Rhys. Not to mention a door of blood and tears.

It’s been great fun to write for this age group again (7-12 years roughly) but the book is also clearly under a spell, because every time we’ve worked on it it has started to snow here.

Also, I will be at the London Book Fair on Wednesday 11th April as part of a panel event in the Children’s Hub, talking about magic and mystery in books from Wales. That should be a really interesting event.
