“Back to the Future for the Large Hadron Collider generation”

New year. New book. New blogpost.

On 14th January, The Many Worlds of Albie Bright will be published by Nosy Crow. You can find out more about this novel on the Books page of this website and read the first chapter here. The Many Worlds of Albie Bright is a very different book to Twelve Minutes to Midnight and the other Penelope Tredwell novels – my best effort at an elevator pitch is Millions meets Sliding Doors with a side order of quantum physics. It’s a book about love, loss and parallel universes.

For me the build-up to publication day is similar to how I imagine actors feel before the curtain goes up on opening night, filled with nervous anticipation, so it’s been really heartening to hear some early reviews of The Many Worlds of Albie Bright. Thank you to @bookloverJo and @chaletfan for these fantastic first reviews:

“This book is such a delight – it made me laugh out loud, took my breath away and made me cry. It truly is a wonderful story which I loved reading.” BookLover Jo

“The Many Worlds of Albie Bright is a gloriously eccentric and individualistic beast. It’s one to hoard those post Christmas book tokens for, I think.” L.H. Johnson 

It’s been amazing too to hear some really positive feedback about the novel from authors I admire and I want to thank Piers Torday for his quotes about The Many Worlds of Albie Bright that grace the cover of the book and the title of this blogpost.

I’ve got some exciting stuff planned for the rest of the month, so keep checking back for updates. You can read my Top Ten list of parallel worlds in fiction at the Guardian Children's Books website. And if you’re interested in finding out more about the real-life science behind The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, check out the Pinterest board for the book.

Wishing you all a very happy new year. I hope your world in 2016 is filled with hope and wonder.
