A new member of the team: say hi to Hannah

The lovely smiling face in this photo is Hannah the Editorial Assistant.  She's a new recruit to Team Keith at St Martin's Press, which is probably why she's smiling. 

Hannah's holding the very first jacket to come from the printer for my next book.  This is the first time I've seen the entire jacket too.

I have a feeling this is Hannah's first foray into the wild and wacky world of publishing.  I wish her many long years of success, and hope she manages to keep her sanity more or less intact.  Welcome Hannah!

So exciting! The cover looks gorgeous. Can't wait to read it!

Hi Vicky! It does look rather cool.

A lot of people don't realize that authors usually have no control over the covers or titles of their books. I've been extraordinarily lucky with the consultation over mine.

I wouldn't normally copy stuff from twitter, but I can't resist this one.

This from @jltri on twitter:

@GaryCorby What??!? Familiar face in your blog post today - I went to college with Hannah! I can confirm that she is wonderful. Small world!

Yup! She's extremely talented. You're in excellent hands here. Yay Hannah!
