THE STRANGER'S GUIDE TO TALLISTON PUBLICATION DATE & BOOK LAUNCH
As you will have read, The Stranger’s Guide To Talliston is now printing and the 500 limited edition copies are expected to be in the UK warehouses by the last day in April 2019. While the trade hardback is not set to be released for another two months (11th July 2019) for the summer, your copies that you have waited so long to receive will be with you in the first days of May 2019.
I would personally like to thank each and every one of the supporters of the book – for making it possible to publish such a gorgeous book into the world. In the initial publisher’s questionnaire, when I was asked where I saw the book, I replied: ”In a wizard’s library!” (Which was unfortunate, as they were expecting answers like “in a WH Smith bargain bin”.) And I think we have really accomplished that. I know I for one am terribly excited to final see the book in all its red leather glory.
Each copy of the limited edition will have a hand numbered and initialled golden seal featuring the Talliston logo, plus an inserted entry for The Golden Key to Talliston, a token that allows entry into an annual lottery to win a quite wondrous and unique prize (see more about this competition for all owners of the novel here).
So, now that we have that news, we can confirm the following:
LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK LAUNCH DATE
Supporters should get their copies mailed to them on or around this date. Please check that your mailing address is still the same as when your pledged your support by visiting your Unbound account today.
There will be about 150 limited editions unclaimed after the mailing, and these will only be available to buy at Talliston House & Gardens and selected author appearances. So, if you or your friends & family do require additional copies, you know where to come…
You are cordially invited to:

On Thursday 9th May 2019
We have booked the first floor Market Room, and they’ll be canapés and refreshments – and a chance to celebrate the launch of the novel. We also have use of the smaller, quieter Oak Room – where books can be signed and you get to chat with the author. Supporting this book with a personal visit will mean the world to me and a suitable celebration of the next chapter in the Talliston adventure.
