Release date! Book tour! AAAAHHHH

Hello! 

It feels like I started writing my silly little book about video games about two hundred years ago. Sadly, video games didn't exist then and a book about rocking horses got old quickly. 

Still, I persevered and I'm happy to announce that we officially release Fuck Yeah, Video Games in stores on the 19th September 2019! 

(Actually shops kindof ignore proper release dates and stock them when they get them so it might appear a little earlier that week!)

(Also, the US release date for stores is October... somethingth)

If you're reading this then chances are that you are waiting for a pre-order to arrive. At the literal time of writing I'm on a train to go and sign thousands of them, pack them into boxes and fling them at you! You should have them at the very start of next week! If you're outside of the UK, you'll get them sent out at the same time! No need to wait for the store release date! Sorry that it's a little closer to release than planned, but I'm awful at everything and hit every deadline like a dead fish in front of a pitching machine.

We are done though. The prints are printed, pins packed and the dog bookmarks are a brilliant mess. Quick note on those, we accidentally got them printed on the wrong paper (I told you I was awful) so if you backed that tier or the collectors edition, you'll recieve two bookmarks! One signed by my doggies and one clean one. Bonuses!

We're also on a book tour! Look at this lovely image! 

Wow! All those trains for me to catch! Each stop will have a few copies of the book avaliable, even though they're before the release date. I don't know how that works. Probably magic. Oh, and these events are free and not ticketed so come along! I'm more than happy to sign your signed edition again!

Right. That's all from me. I have to ruin thousands of copies with a pen.

Big kisses

Dan

Will we have the book before the start of the book tour? I don't want to show up in Edinburgh without my copy that I want to be signed again. Major congrats on this massive achievement.

Can't wait to read it! I'll be moving into university this weekend and it'll be shipping to my house so I might have to grab another copy on the day of the signing though.
