Sorry it's been a long time since my last update. I have some great news about The Boy with Nails for Eyes which I'm happy to share.
Last year Lizzie Kaye, who commissioned The Boy with Nails for Eyes at Unbound, set up her own publishing company, Cast Iron Books. Cast Iron specialises in graphic novels, and illustrated and experimental fiction. I'm delighted that Cast Iron Books will be partnering with Unbound to publish The Boy with Nails for Eyes.
The question you might be asking at this point is 'What do I have to do?'
The answer - absolutely nothing. Your book and the rewards you pledged for will all be delivered as usual, no extra steps required. As things stand The Boy with Nails for Eyes should be in your hands next year. (Obviously COVID-19 is having its effects here as everywhere else so I'll let you know if that changes.)
Of course this is only the first volume of the story - during lockdown I've been working on rough drafts of volumes 2 and 3. The plans have now been completed and I'm going to start the final artwork for volume 2 in the near future. Have a look at some pages from my sketchbook below.
Thank you for all your continuing support - and in particular thank you to everyone who messaged me with questions and encouragements about the project, I really appreciate it.
