A new look… and the big reveal

Pastis, NYC

If you’ve stopped by this blog any time in the last 24 hours you’ll have seen the changes. Jo and I have given the site a mini facelift and I’m loving it! Over in the sidebar there’s a few extra bells and whistles, including a search bar (finally!), links to the Polaroid guide and the Aquarian Twins podcast and, more controversially, a photograph of me. This, I must admit, feels a bit weird — I haven’t had my mug on the homepage like this in years, but it’s all part of me embracing my author-y future *gulp*, and while I can’t imagine I’ll ever have a corporate-looking site, I realise that as my name’s on the door it makes sense to have a prominent pic too (shot on Impossible Project film, fact fans :).

However, the biggest change is up there in the header, where we’ve included a sorta-kinda subtitle for the blog, which just so happens to be the subtitle for my book, too. So this is me officially announcing that the name of my book is:

This I Know: Notes on Unraveling the Heart

When the book comes out ‘unraveling’ will have one L and not two, as my publisher is in America, so American-English is the norm. And to my English eyes it looks odd, but then again, it embraces the fact that the community I belong to — here on the blog, on Twitter/Facebook, in my Unravelling classes — is global, so it doesn’t matter whether it’s Unravelling or Unraveling, the truth behind the word is the same.

So there you go — the title.

I’ve been feeling so nervous about sharing it here! It feels so final, so real, so oh-shit-this-is-really-happening. It’s exciting. And really scary, too.

I hope you like it. x

    As a Commonwealth sister I will miss the second “l” but I’ll be among the first in line to buy your book next spring. The site is lovely and it’s nice to see your gorgeous face up there. xo

  21. jane

    It’s perfect! Can not wait to read it! So excited for you Susannah! So much blood sweat and tears. What an accomplishment!

  22. Helen (Dixon Hill Girl)

    LOVE that title! :)

  23. Christine

    The blog looks great and I love the book title. I’ve always like your use of “unravelling’ – it always evokes this image of a huge ball of thread, all twisted and tight, unspooling and becoming a million smooth lines of colour. It’s a lovely image, and for me, that’s precisely what it feels like to go from suffering to wellness.
    Congrats on all these good changes – I’m very much looking forward to seeing your book on my shelf : )

  24. susannah

    Christine, i love that description – perfect! x

  25. Fabeku


    And I can’t wait to hold a copy in my hands + see the magics with my own two eyes.

    So excited for you.

    Just discovered you but do love the look. Congrats on the book and I look forward to more!

  29. jane (faerian)

    congratulations lovely Susannah – the reason you have to give up the second l in unravelling is because you are officially Lovely Susannah in my head and so the l is required for that title (just thought you would like to know) – new blog look is awesome, of course x

  30. echo

    I can’t wait until your book comes out! The site looks grand, and the picture of you is lovely (of course – no worries there).

  31. Rae

    Looking forwards to the day I become a proud owner of your book ….
