Cover of Song

One year since Song became fully funded

Sunday, 28 January 2018

Dear all,

Happy New Year, if it's not too late at the end of January.

It's been a while since my last update because there's not been a whole lot going on. Corrections were being incorporated. Jacket art was finalised (see attached -- although the tagline will change). What do you think? I hope you like it. We're now plotting a marketing plan. Backers should receive their copy of Song in May. There'll be a party! The publishing date for the trade is June 28th. After that date, the novel will be in the bookshops. I hope to do some bookshop talks, some festivals, some press. Fingers crossed. 

The main reason I'm writing is because I just noticed the date today and realised it's been a year since the day I saw "100% funded" flick up on my screen. I wanted to say thank you again. A year on, thank you. 

More soon.

MIchelle x

Thank you all for your lovely messages...
Simon -- the illustration is by Aitch H. Love his name as much as his penwork!
