Last year I read and loved The Wish Child by Catherine Chidgey. In December, when listing my favourite books of 2017, I tweeted this:

The author saw the tweet and shortly afterwards I heard from her agent.

I am now going the publish her next book!

The Wish Child went on to be New Zealand's bestselling book of last year. It really should have been bigger here.
The Beat of the Pendulum is a "found novel", comprising material such as news stories, radio broadcasts, emails, social media, street signs, TV, and conversations that the author came across during the year she was writing The Wish Child. We have got a stunning cover for it.
And as the first entry of the book is January 1st, we will publish on January 1st 2019.

If you want, you can pre-order a copy direct from Lightning Books.
