The Lion & The Unicorn

A policeman sets out to investigate a murder in a near-future where bad taste is illegal.

So, last week we finally hit 100% after starting funding back in April 2019. It's been a huge, long process, and I want to thank each and every person who pre-ordered, bought a poem, bought another book, recommended it to a friend, shared my endless social media posts... I'm really, truly grateful for all of the support.
Now, next steps. The book has been written, and 'finished' for about three years. I haven't read through the whole thing probably since sending it to Unbound last year, so I'm now in the process of giving it a thorough edit, changing things, updating ideas etc. I'm hoping I can get this done in the next week.
After that, Unbound will asign an editor to give it a read. This will be the first external (and professional) set of eyes to see the whole thing, and the purpose is not only to proof-read the book, but to make it the best book it can be. After that is sorted, we'll talk about artwork, and any other outstadning issues.
As for when the book will be out, a publication date hasn't been set yet, but will be once the book has been through the editor's hands. I'm aiming to work as quickly (and hard) as possible to make sure the book comes out ASAP. Re-reading it I'm more excited than ever to share it after what has been a long funding process.
Watch this space...
