Digital art part 1 of 3! Bookplates! Books IN THE MAIL!

HI EVERYONE IT IS ALL HAPPENING! Your books are IN THE MAIL! Here’s a pic of the bookplates while I was mid-signing:

You will all be getting your books very soon. We’ll send a link to the audio version (for those backers that wanted one) in about 10 days (I’m still recording it.) I hope you enjoy them! If you want to recommend it to your friends, here is a link for the UK and here is a link for the US to purchase the mass market paperback in a way that supports local independent booksellers. 

The one thing you can do for the book and for me that helps more than anything else is taking five minutes to leave a good review at Goodreads and/or Amazon (where number of reviews significantly alters the metric of whether Amazon will recommend your book or not). It doesn’t have to be eloquent, just some stars and a “enjoyed it” is fine. Reviewing the work of authors you want to support is the easiest, cheapest way to help us and it makes SUCH a difference to the success of the book. 

Here is part one of our digital art bonus reward! Three pieces by Maichan:


I will post Part 2 tomorrow, Tsumi’s paintings of Iain! There is also a PART THREE of EVEN MORE BONUS ART because I may have tripped and asked my friend Nick Robles to draw a poster for the book’s US release. So there’s a great poster of Harry rather beat up and exhausted, resting after a tournament, that’s coming your way by the end of the week.

Michael: whoa! That’s a lot of book to read in one sitting (and it’s also the greatest compliment you can pay an author, THANK YOU). I apologise for all the sleep you didn’t get.

Marie-Lyne and Suze: SOON, it is coming SOON! I’ve already seen photos from some backers with the book in their hands...
