Breaking News: A SPECIAL EVENT FOR
Hello, it's me again. You know, it was only after sending out the last newsletter that I realized just how much I'd missed you. This silence between us isn't good. We need to stay in touch more. Take a look in your garden. See that bloke there? That's me, that is...
So, doing anything special on Thursday June 6th, by any chance? Well, apart from recreating the D-Day landings on your living room floor, in which case it might do you good to get out a bit more. Think you might be anywhere near Belfast? If so, please join illustrator Emily Hall and me for a special event to sign and discuss the collectible hardcover edition of THE WANDERER IN UNKNOWN REALMS at No Alibis Bookstore. Here are all the details, in case you'd like to cut and paste them and share them with your friends:
We'll offer you a drink, and sign some books. Emily Hall and I will also chat a bit about the story and her approach to the illustrations. Everyone who attends or orders from the store will get a small gift to mark the occasion (we'll also send along the little extra thingy to everyone who has ordered the book so far via ABE or the other bookstores carrying the special edition, because we don't want anyone to feel left out). With luck, you'll also get a small preview of coming attractions, including THE CREEPS and possibly even the new Parker novel in progress. It'll be a lovely, casual evening, as these things tend to be at No Alibis.
If you've ordered the special edition, thanks! (And if you haven't, you can still do so here, although it's going fast: I think half of the 750 copies sold in preorders in the first week.) The books will be signed on the day of the event, so we'll start shipping them immediately afterwards.
The e-book is now available in Ireland, the UK, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe through your favorite electronic bookseller. It's coming to the US and Canada on June 25. Thanks for your support!
