Want to see something beautiful?

Hi everyone,

During these unexpectedly difficult times, I've been very, very encouraged that Unbound are continuing to work on publishing their books as normal (even if from their own homes). So there's no delay in the publication of Underdogs: Tooth and Nail.

In the meantime... take a look at this amazing cover they've designed for it!!

I don't know about you, but I utterly love it. (For those curious about the characters, left to right they are Raj, Thomas, Gracie, Shannon, Ewan, Mark and Simon. The others are on the back, except for Kate who takes pride of place on the spine.)

All the best to all of you who are currently in isolation. If it helps those who are interested and are on Facebook, I'll be hosting a live reading of Underdogs on Autistic Not Weird's Facebook page (cross-posted to Underdogs' Facebook page, naturally) each day at 6pm. At time of writing (March 26th), only one episode has been broadcast (chapters 1 & 2), so there's only one video you'd need to catch up on.

United by our differences,

Chris Bonnello

Would be nice if you could post those reading videos to Youtube for those of us who don't use Facebook.

Thanks for the suggestion- that's a good idea! And I just discovered that I can download my live videos, so I'll give it a go. My YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/c/autisticnotweird
Thanks again,
