Denouement Mole / The End
So, we've reached the end. You've done your part and helped usher my first horrible little pile of printed woodpulp into the world, for which I am eternally grateful, and you're either reading it or staring lovingly at your own name where it's printed between the covers.
We had a launch party the other week and I've finally recovered enough to share the photos (taken by local genius author and photographer Sarah K. Marr, hosted at the excellent Waterstones Tottenham Court Road) with you! BEHOLD:
Thank you so much to everyone who came and made it such a memorable evening. I hope you like the book! I hope you also don't mind my signature being a disaster I'm still learning how to write my name apparently - also thank you to everyone who tried to warn me that I was standing next to a very distracting bin.
ANYWAY WHAT'S NEXT
1) READ IT
2) BUT I ALREADY READ IT
Great! I hope you liked it. If you didn't, come to my house so I can tell you to get out of my house. Either way, please head over to your local ultracapitalist nightmare collective Amazon.com and leave a short review!
3) BUT I HATE AMAZON
Yes, I know. I hate Amazon too and every night I pray for its swift and bloody overthrow, but unfortunately its stranglehold on the publishing industry is something new authors have to live with - for now. Once a book receives 50 reviews then The Algorithm kicks in and the book can be considered for a whole bunch of publicity-raising stuff. So why not leave a review and force Amazon to do something nice?
4) BUT I REALLY HATE AMAZON
I PROMISE YOU DO NOT HATE AMAZON MORE THAN I DO but if you really don't want to leave a review there then you can still help out by leaving a review on Waterstones, Goodreads, or by the good old-fashioned method of delivering your review directly into someone's ears at a party!
5) I DID MY BIT AND YOU'RE JUST ANNOYING ME NOW
THAT MAY BE TRUE BUT I STILL LOVE AND RESPECT YOU FOR THE SUPPORT YOU'VE GIVEN ME AND I'LL NEVER FORGET IT THANK YOU FOR TAKING THIS JOURNEY WITH ME YOUR REWARD IS I WON'T EMAIL YOU ANY MORE
LOVE NIALL X
