    I just finished your short story, ‘Our Man in the Sudan’ and I can’t say enough about it. The descriptions of the dessert and the people of Sudan were amazing. The story was romantic, exciting, and at times terrifying. I will definitely try one of your books next.

    Thanks for the chills!

    just finished ‘A MATTER OF BLOOD’ WOW

    that does not express the awe i am feeling.
    thank-you thank-you

    Who should I contact/where should I go to find your “Dog-faced Gods” books in eBook format in the US? I can only find the p-book versions – not that I’m averse to going p-book, but it’s just quicker for me to get the e-books 🙂

    • sarah

      Hi, Ace (Penguin) are bringing the books out in the US from January next year, so I should imagine that’s when the eBook will be available over there.

    Hi Sarah:

    I sent the below to your gmail a while back, then I remembered you saying it was down, so here it is again. Excuse my raving. Old habits die hard.

    ‘Reformed Facebook nuisance Stephen Lord here. I’ve just finished The Chosen Seed and wanted to congratulate you on a job well done. I’ve enjoyed all three Dog Faced Gods books in different ways and for different reasons and, while there were times I didn’t know or fully understand what you had in mind, the revelation/resolution at the very end of Seed made it all worthwhile. It’s an ‘inevitable surprise’ of sorts and, once you know what Mr Bright and friends are up to, all the clues in the previous books become obvious. You put a lot of thought and planning into the storyline and it shows.

    I am first and foremost a crime buff, so the familiar territory (grim urban setting, serial killer on loose for reasons unknown, righteously screwed-up antihero tracking him down) in A Matter of Blood hooked me right away. Once we find out Mr Solomon is not altogether human, you shift gears- effortlessly and gradually- into the sort of metaphysical fantasy Clive Barker taught me to love. That’s no mean feat, yet you manage it while still playing fair with the whodunit elements.

    For me the most important part of any mystery is not who but why. By the time students start topping themselves in Shadow and people get injected with Strain II in Seed, we know the Network is somehow behind it but we don’t find out why, and nor should we until Cass does. I had my suspicions but in a case like this it’s nice to be proved wrong.

    Like his namesake in the Bob Dylan song, Mr Jones doesn’t know what’s going on and, by the time he susses it all out, he really has no option but to accept his lot in life (or thereafter) and make the best of it. There’s an inevitability to many of the Network’s actions, and the stories that spring from them, and the whole ‘choice vs fate’ theme lends itself to the grand scale plot you dreamed up.

    I’ve started to sound like the overanalytical, pseudy English Lit student I once was, so I’ll shut up in a minute. Let me sign off by saying that I read an awful lot and the authors who occupy space on my shelves fall into two categories- the ones at whom I snort derisively and ‘I can do better than that’ and the ones who make me think ‘ho-ly shit, I have to lift my game.’ I’ll give you one guess which category you’re in’

    PS: What are the odds of a short story collection from you one of these days? I know you’ve written, and continue to write, a fair few of them, and it would be nice to have them all under one cover. Perhaps with The Language of Dying as a centrepiece?

    • sarah

      Thanks for this! Very glad you enjoyed it!;-) As for a collection – no doubt I’ll get round to one at some point but that would involve writing a couple of fresh stories and I currently just don’t have the time! Once again, thanks for the kind words,
      Sarah x

    Hi Sarah,
    Just finished the forgotten gods trilogy and I loved it! will reccommend your novels to my friends.Also, as a Periodontist(gum specialist) I will have all my patients read these books. Hopefully, after reading the trilogy, they will take better care of their gums and teeth.
    Is their any chance of either a pre-quel or a sequel to the trilogy?

  • Toby lynch

    Hi there
    Have no idea if this is possible but if you’re not doing any London book signings I would really love to get a dedicated signed copy of the death house?

    • sarah

      Hi, there are signed copies in Goldsboro Books and Forbidden Planet, and I have an event at Drinkshopdo on the 10th March where I will be signing too!

  • Mark

    Have you quit Twitter? It’s been a pleasure to follow you and I’m gutted that you seem to have deleted your account.

  • Nikki

    Are you going to write anymore books like Beauty, Poison, and Charm? They are the best fairytales I have read in a long time. If so do you have a upcoming date so I can plan on going to the book store? Thank you so much!

  • Christine Hornsby

    Sarah… I was overwhelmed by The Death House . it is one of the best novels I have ever read, not only for the style, so compatible with the theme. At times so sinister, certainly contemporary and then…such beautiful descriptions eg the northern lights and their effect on Toby, Clara and Will. I was moved to tears by Will’s death too… so poignantly told. I will be reading more of your work, Sarah and learning as I go along. I write for young people but am self published. Your success is well deserved and I wish you well. I enjoy novels which are well written but which also give much food for thought and this one gave me everything I could hope for… a real page turner.

    I was enjoying my 1st Sarah Pinborough novel, behind her eyes, until page 194 when her description of someone critical to the story describes her as ” having to be a retard”, to not have realized something in the plot. I am a librarian, 65 years old, over 30 years in the field, and I read reviews from many sources, and purchase adult titles for the public library where I work. I also happen to be the grandmother of a sweet, funny, handsome, non-verbal 6 year old child who has a severe case of autism. I wear abracelet with all of thecolors of “the spectrum” , autism, and also one that says ” send the word to end the word” , which refers to using the word “retard” in a perjorative manner. My grandson was born with his disability, his parents both work with adults with disabilities, and we, and many others who know first hand the trials of everyday life with someone with this affliction, strenuously object to such terms describing such issues. Using that word in that context shows a total disregard for those who struggle daily with such issues, and using that word as a derogatory term only shows the ignorance of the person using the word in that way. I am very disappointed to see that even a best selling author such as this, can be so uninformed, callous, and demeaning as to toss around a word like that. I highly recommend that she at keastdo some research, or better yet, spend a week with a family that deals with the harsh realities of such disabilities daily. Their reality is stressful, depressing, sleep- deprived, isolating, and endless. Do some research, perhaps for another novel, and write a book that tells their story.

    • sarah

      I totally agree with you about this word. I’m an ex-high school teacher and have taught many children who have very different learning issues. I would NEVER use this word and I thought about it carefully before using it in the context of the novel – I, as person, as the author, DON”T use this word. A character does. And the point is that it should say something about that character that they would use it, and it is there to make the reader view that character less pleasantly that they would use that word. I hope that clarifies a little, and I’m sorry that you think that I would behave in such a way.

  • Marilyn Bastarache

    thank you for your reply.

  • Kimberly White

    Hi Sarah,
    My beloved book club will be discussing Behind her Eyes tomorrow evening. We all, as far as I can tell, couldn’t put it down. Was hoping you’d have suggestions to start our discussion or a note to the girls from you would be a real treat.

    By the way, I chose the story based on a positive Facebook post from the great mystery writer, Stephen King. Very glad I did too.

      Hey Kimberley!
      Thank you so much for getting in touch to say you and the book group all (hopefully) enjoyed the book! I’m rubbish at coming up with discussion topics (when it’s your own story it always feels weird to try and think of those kinds of things) but maybe something about blending genres? Or whether it was hard to by sympathetic to someone who was basically putting themselves in someone else’s marriage? But anyway, please all have a glass of wine with or after your discussion and I shall toast you from here! x
