Alberto on 21 August, 2017

Greetings, Cornelia Funke: My name is Alberto, I'm sixteen and I'm from Brazil. My first contact with your work, Ink World, was two years ago in the library of my school, and I have been following and recommending with enthusiasm, since that cold, rainy April day, to everyone who that says looking for good literary experiences. Your stories had a gigantic and truly magical influence in my life: they captivated me, inspired me and kept me company, and I try to express a simple reverence and immense gratitude here. I'm in love with your characters: there is not one of them who, cruelestly, did not conquer me (by the way, I still think it's a crime that you killed Dancer of the Clouds). Words in your hands come to life and offer life to those who read them. Dream in a day to be able to discover your tricks personally! Like you, I really enjoy to draw and would like to know how I can send you some of my drawings. And I would also like to ask: Do you enjoy reading or writing with music? If so, what kind of music? Again, thank you so much for everything that made me live and feel with your books. It's a pleasure finally write to you. Giant embraces and hummingbird kisses, Alberto.

Hi Alberto, thank you so much for your beautiful entry and welcome to Cornelia's guestbook. Cornelia loves listening to classical music while writing or illustrating her stories. Writing Inkheart...Read more

Talisu on 11 August, 2017

Hello, I am curious to know Cornelia's opinions being LGBT and whether there is a potential to have characters who are represented in future works of hers?

Hi Talisu, in one of Cornelia's books of her C.H.I.X. book series, two girls fall in love with each other. It is the fifth book of the series, and it has not been translated into English yet.

Anna Whinchseter on 10 August, 2017

Hi Mrs. Funke, I have read all of the Inkheart, Inkspell, and Inkdeath. I was wondering if there is ever going to be any more in that series? I enjoyed reading about the Inkworld, and I was wondering what do you sugest to read next from your work? Thanks

Hi Anna, Cornelia is currently working on book 4. It is called The Colour of Revenge. We will keep you posted here on her website As to her other books, just browse our bookshelf, where you will find a complete list of her books plus excerpts and audio samples. Best from Germany, Insa and Guesty

Hello Cornelia, my name is Ilona. I am from Izhevsk,Russia. I love very much your books, I love very much your characters. I want to know more of you and your characters. How are you ? What you going in free time? How are Jecob, Fox, Nerrone? Will I see them in your books one more time. I want to see them happy and I think you too. Will Fox see her brother one more time? Will Lui seeing Nerron? And I want to tell a my favorite characters it is Fox, Nerron, Nioma, Will, Gambler, Elinor, Black Prince, Saperuk and Scipio. I love very much them. They are very clever and help me a lot in life. I and my friend Nastia read a lot of your books and I think my favorite roman is Reckless. It is gloomy and magical.

Shelby on 23 July, 2017

Hello Insa and Guesty! I saw that a little while ago that an Inkworld app was mentioned in an interview and I was wondering if that was something that you are still working on. I would absolutely love to see an Inkworld app and would download/buy it in a heartbeat!

Hi Shelby, the Mirrorworld app was published in 2013 Have a look here ...

Hi, Insa and Guesty. I sent a story to the website. It is there in the 'Your Stories' section, but nobody except my family has read it. What should I do?

I'm not sure, if I got your question right, Jahnavi. Would you like me to delete your story from the site or would you like to know how to get more comments on your story?

Hello Insa and Guesty! I have a friend who wants to register for the mirrorworlders like I did. But I am curious if it is still available to join anymore. If it isn't, why?

Yes, it is, but we do not send passports anymore. That was just a temporary offer.
