Kate Allan

The online diary of Kate Allan, author

Saturday, October 07, 2006


Arrived this morning in a bright white padded envelope from Dundee: six copies of The Restless Heart, just published by DC Thomson as a My Weekly Story Collection paperback. If you'd like a copy get to the shops quick as it'll be on the shelves now.

I'm pleased with the title they've decided on. I'd called this story Journey to Love, but never really liked that title. It was the first manuscript I ever finished, back in 2001. I completely revised it last year for DC Thomson.

The cover's not bad either. I'll scan it in and post it here shortly.

So why I am upset?

It's been published using my full first name of Katherine - so it's by Katherine Allan, not Kate Allan. I guess somewhere along the line a mistake was made.

I've stomped about a bit at home this morning, but nothing I can do now.

    Kate, the girl on the cover is just precious! Want to know her story after first glance.
    Good luck,

    I love the cover! And somehow the name Katherine looks so right against that historcal cover. It sounds less comtemporary than Kate. I'd expect a 'Kate' to write chick-lit and a 'Katherine' to excel at historical fiction. Why not keep it for all of your My Weekly stories?
