Hearing about an exciting new novel is up there with hearing that your favourite band have got a new tour coming up, or that Mad Men have finally got a new series planned.

You want to pass judgement on the cover, to find out what the critics say, to see how it stacks up against the writer’s previous book. You want to find out more about the writer, you want to discuss the plot with your friends and see which characters you love and hate. Hell, you want to see if you can get your hands on an early copy and read it before anyone else.

Enter onthestrand.tumblr.com, the new blog from Penguin General that’s going to bring you all the news on all of our new fiction titles. Fig Tree have a debut author who we can’t stop raving about? They’re on there. Viking have just acquired a new US sleeper hit that’s going to be massive in the UK next year? The author interview and early proofs are up for grabs on the blog. Hamish Hamilton have the new cover for Zadie Smith’s first novel in 7 years?  No, seriously, IT IS UP THERE.
