DW Akademie recently published this in-depth piece that takes a look at the creation of Inkheart. Did you know?…after Inkheart was published, Cornelia Funke quickly followed it with Inkspell and Inkdeath, each coming out just two years later! The international buzz around Inkheart was even part of what brought Cornelia out to Los Angeles, California.
And the story continues! Over a decade since the first book in the InkWorld series came out, Cornelia is in the midst of writing a fourth book in the series.
