The Burning Hill is released today, 13 Dec. Exciting! I hope you've all received your copy by now. If your pledge included a digital copy, I believe you should have received an email from Unbound with an instruction on how to download - please let me know if you haven't managed to get hold of your digital copy yet.
I'm checking with Unbound on the delivery of the giclée prints for those pledges that included the print.
Reviews and ratings on Goodreads and Amazon will be the lifeblood for my novel and I would be incredibly grateful for a rating/review on either or both of those platforms when you've managed to read (I know Christmas is a busy time though). By the way, you won't be able to leave a review on Amazon until the release on 13 Dec. Here's a 'How To' link for Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/230-how-do-i-write-a-review-of-a-book (although I'm afraid you do need to sign in to be able to rate/review).
The blog tour went swimmingly last week and I had some amazing reviews - I have pasted an excerpt from one below:
'You know the feeling you get when you read a book by an author that is just SO WELL written, with such unbelievably descriptive scenes that it literally plays out like a movie in your mind? That is THIS book.'
'I love a story with conflicted, complex and flawed characters, so this book was a terrific match for me. Both Jake and Vilson are broken, complicated humans, with their histories and circumstance having shaped them into what they are. I loved how the story moved from one character's perspective to the other, letting the reader fall deeper into an understanding of who these people were, and why they were so driven to do what they do.'
I am speaking to venues in London about the launch party and it seems likely that it will be in late January or February. Will let you know as soon as I have something confirmed.
Please take a look at the short animation I made (not sure if it will appear at the top or bottom), which I'm using for online publicity. I'm rather proud of the flames!
