My book is here! Publication date is still 2 May, but the copies are now in the office. (cue much squee-ing)
It’s so pretty! Thank you, All The Lovely People At Faber, for my beautiful book!
ARCs (Advance Review Copies) will be going out soon. These will be copies of the finished book (i.e. the version above). My first copy should arrive on Wednesday. I will probably cry.
Though I shall try not to cry on the book.
I will definitely be cuddling it. (My own, my preciousssssssis.)
My cat will be very jealous, but there we go. On the plus side, he likes books: he enjoys chewing lazily at the edges, but mostly he enjoys lying on his back (on my tummy) with a book open on his tummy. Yes, he is spectacularly cute. And very tolerant. When he’s not being A Wild and Ferocious Beast. Then he’s not cute or tolerant.
There’s cats for you.
If you’re looking closely you will have spotted that this is a unusual size paperback with a dustjacket. If you get a copy (please, please read my book!), remember to look under the cover at the gorgeous ‘inside boards’ (i.e. the design printed on to the binding of the book).
Altogether it’s a fairly unusual format for a book, but this fits the fact that it’s a pretty unusual sort of story. It starts with a rib bone in a pot. A human rib bone belonging to someone still alive. It ends up with a Dragon.
Preorder from Amazon, WHSmith, Waterstones or your local bookshop.
