Big surprise for all ink world fans!

Advance publication of the first 15 chapters of "Inkworld - The Color of Revenge" as audio book, live premiere with speaker Rainer Strecker on April 17th on YouTube, weekly publication of a chapter on all popular streaming services

Hamburg, April 9, 2020: Originally »The Color of Vengeance«, the continuation of their successful »Ink World« series, should appear next year. Now Cornelia Funke has decided to take an extraordinary step without further ado: She will publish the first 15 chapters of the long-awaited further story about Meggie, Mo, Staubfinger and Co. in advance as a digital audio book on her own label Breathing Books, read by "Zauberzunge" Rainer Strecker and lavishly staged by the sound artists of German Wahnsinn. She is breaking new ground as an author and, above all, would like to give her fans a special gift in these difficult times. The remarkable thing about it: Cornelia Funke has not yet finished writing the book and takes her readers and listeners on a journey with a previously unknown outcome. The plot of "The Color of Vengeance" begins five years after "Tintentod", and fans can now look forward to entering the "Ink World" again after many years and meeting all the characters they have come to love there.

“Actually, I didn't want to take you all back into the world of ink until the end of next year. After all, I haven't finished “The Color of Vengeance”, ”says Cornelia Funke. “But these are hard times, and stories are especially needed at such times. So I decided, together with my very good friend Eduardo Garcia, to have Rainer Strecker read the first 15 chapters of the new book to you - who, as you know, always does this wonderfully. I would also like to thank my editor, Imke Ahrens, for casting her keen eye on the text, even though we are also currently working on 'Reckless 4'. I don't like to send texts out into the world without them looking for mistakes in them! In the next few months there will be a chapter from the ink world on a regular basis. I hope you guys like going back there as much as I do! "

On April 17th there was a live reading of the first chapter from "The Color of Vengeance": Rainer Strecker read from his living room on Cornelia's Instagram and the YouTube channel of Breathing Books.

The chapters are available as stream and download at the following link every two weeks
