Bouncing up and down a bit today, because the publishers have just sent through the blad for my latest book. Secrets in the Skies tells the story of Galileo Galilei, his discoveries and battle against the Inquisition, and is slated for publication by the brilliant folks at Wren & Rook this November.
Giving the storybook treatment to such an important slice of scientific history was a really enjoyable challenge, but I’m thrilled at how it’s come together – and especially chuffed at the awesome illustrations from the hugely talented James Weston Lewis. Hopefully I’ll be able to offer a glimpse of the interior closer to publication, but for the moment I’m delighted to share this preview of the cover!
