He is here for your questions and comments.

Dear Cornelia Funke, I am doing a report on the book Inkheart. What kind of genre does that book have?

It's a fantasy novel, Rachel.

Savannah on 24 April, 2017

Is the new book made yet? Remember Rachel and Michaela we are friends

Not yet, Savannah. We will keep you posted on all new book projects in our Writing House Times.

Big Inkheart Fan on 23 April, 2017

I should've posted this in the last one, but when will "Colour of Revenge" be released?

The publication date is still not known. Cornelia is working on the German original version. It is far too early to know how long it will take to publish the English edition.

Isabelle Van Brocklin on 22 April, 2017

Hi.... This website is sooooo awesome! I read Reckless, and the Ink series and I absolutely loved them! Are any of your books having film adaptations done? And if so.... are you looking for actresses?

Hi Isabelle, there are no current film productions, but take a look at our Film/Theatre section, where you can find all former adaptations.

Big Inkheart Fan on 20 April, 2017

Hey! I am the ABSOLUTE BIGGEST FAN of Inkheart EVER! I have read through the entries recently, and it says that Cornelia is working on book four? If so, I will be the very first to read it!! Is it true?

Yes, it is, BIF The working title is "The Colour of Revenge". We will keep you posted here on Cornelia's website.

Someone on 16 April, 2017

Hi Insa, In the 'writing house times' the next chat is announced, but when I clicked on the phone it just said that the next chat will be announced soon. Maybe It's something with my computer, but I thought I'd better mention it anyway...

So sorry, Someone, that was a date-typo. The date for the next chat will be announced tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding

Does your publishing company, Breathing Books, accept other manuscripts?

They won't publish books by other authors for probably the next two years.

Jessica Shibley on 13 April, 2017

Almost forgot to mention, (should have posted this question before the other one) I'm a big fan of Cornelia Funke's Dragon Rider series and I'm an artist. I made her some fanart from her Dragon Rider series, I wanted to know if I could mail it to her and if so, what address do I need to send it too?

You can send your pictures to mail@corneliafunke.com. Would you like us to post them in our fan album? Best from Germany, Insa and Guesty

Rosa and Liesel on 11 April, 2017

Hi Cornelia, my friend and I were wondering where you got your inspiration from in an older novel you wrote, "The Thief Lord". It takes place in Venice; did you ever visit help write your book? We are going to Italy this year and are actually visiting the City of Water. We'll make sure to reread "The Thief Lord" before then! Thanks so much for your time!!

Hi Rosa and Liesel, have a look at our...Read more
