Grief, Joy and Spilled Rum at the World’s Death Festivals

Thursday, 5 September 2019

Judge this book by its cover.

Hello, early subscribers to This Party’s Dead!

Just a quick note to let you know Unbound have let an artist loose on my book, and produced this beautiful Cover Art print:

And as is customary in our conveniently consumerist culture, if you want it, it's yours. A brand new pledge level, 'Cover Art Print' sits right there between 'Read With a Friend' and 'Death Get-Together'. So go ahead and pledge, or upgrade your pledge.

Also, at the time of writing, 34 of you have gone for The Biscotti Edition. Good lord. I was not expecting that. At this point I may as well just become a baker. 

One more small thing: I have officially finished ALL SEVEN DEATH FESTIVALS! So all that's left to do now, apart from get over the jet lag that's made me a morning person, is finish it. My manuscript deadline is December 1st and the book is currently sailing over the 85% mark. So close! Please do share with anyone you think needs to read about the world's glorious death parties, and if you fancy upgrading your pledge that would also help kick it over the line.

That's all for now. Have a lovely weekend, readers.

As always, it's delightful to have you along for the ride.
