OK, folks…you dear souls who are subscribing members of my LizNews email newsletter already got this information yesterday, but today we go public worldwide with it! My British publisher, Bloomsbury, has just sent me the final design for their version of my new novel, “The Signature of All Things”. People, it’s so gorgeous, and it so beautifully matches the spirit of the novel. And look at the INSIDE, at the lush 19th century botanical designs that will welcome you when you open the book! I couldn’t love it more. I can’t wait to hear what you think… And here is the synopsis of the book, so you can begin to put ideas with images: “Elizabeth Gilbert’s first novel in twelve years is an extraordinary story of botany, exploration and desire, spanning across much of the 19th century. The novel follows the fortunes of the brilliant Alma Whittaker (daughter of a bold and charismatic botanical explorer) as she comes into her own within the world of plants and science. As Alma’s careful studies of moss take her deeper into the mysteries of evolution, the man she loves draws her in the opposite direction—into the realm of the spiritual, the divine and the magical. Alma is a clear-minded scientist; Ambrose is a Utopian artist. But what unites this couple is a shared passion for knowing—a desperate need to understand the workings of this world, and the mechanism behind of all life. The Signature of All Things is a big novel, about a big century. Exquisitely researched and told at a galloping pace, this story novel soars across the globe—from London, to Peru, to Philadelphia, to Tahiti, to Amsterdam and beyond. It is written in the bold, questing spirit of that singular time. Alma Whittkaer is a witness to history, as well as maker of history herself. She stands on the cusp of the modern, with one foot still in the Enlightened Age, and she is certain to be loved by readers across the world.” Guys, I’m so excited about this book, I can’t even tell you. I can’t wait to bring it into the world in October, so you can all meet Alma, whom I have come to love so dearly…and I’m so delighted with the lush, delicious British cover! And don’t worry, Yanks…the American cover shall be coming soon…along with some cool surprises. If you want to pre-order the book, you may do so here: http://www.elizabethgilbert.com/books/ And if you don’t want to miss out on this week’s big reveal (which is coming up in just a few days, and will absolutely BLOW YOUR MIND) then do sign up for my LizNews Newsletter, where you will always be the first to hear of all the really big and really cool news.
