Stretch goals! (Or why you really want to pre-order Underdogs 3 if you haven’t already.)

So Underdogs: Acceleration is moving ahead, and in the coming days I can expect to hear a specific timetable for the publication process. The most relevant point for all of you being this:

Those who pre-order the book will receive it about six months before the rest of the world.


Keeping it to a two-sentence explanation: basically we the book will be ready for autumn, but releasing it just before Christmas is a death sentence for sales (because regular novels get shoved aside by the celebrity big-sellers). So it’ll be released to the public in February 2022, but pre-orderers will just get it once it’s ready in the autumn.

And if that’s enough to persuade you, here’s the link.


Anyway, I mentioned stretch goals. Well, in an effort to get as many people reading it in the autumn as possible, Unbound have come up with these lovely ideas:

Yep, we’re 9% away (at time of writing) from me writing you another short story. We’ve done Ewan, Jack, McCormick, Oliver Roth and even a Christmas special and another one will be waiting once Underdogs: Acceleration hits 115%. (There’ll also be a vote on Underdogs’ Facebook page about who stars in it… Kate? Simon? Even Charlie?)


The other goals are a while away but pretty self-explanatory. There’s stuff, and it’ll be good. And it’ll be exclusive too.

Huge thanks to everyone who’s brought the Underdogs series to where it is so far, and I look forward to bringing you further news! In the meantime, here's the link to Underdogs: Acceleration once more.


United by our differences,
