The Seven launch details

Cover by Jaime Jones

THE SEVEN is launching on the 20th April at Waterstones Piccadilly at 7pm. The event is ticketed and if you book in advance then you make me feel 100% less worried that nobody will come (it also helps the store to know numbers in advance).

The event is going to be chaired by my wonderful agent, Juliet Mushens. There'll be a Q&A, signing, and then leisurely drinks and chat afterwards.

 

 

Tickets cost £8 (£6 to Waterstones card holders) and the price of the ticket is redeemable against the cost of the book. Tickets also get you:

  • A drink
  • An edible cupcake version of the book
  • A doodle in your normal copy of the book*
  • A hug from me*

You can book tickets in store, through the website or by calling: 02078512400

Hope to see you there!

The Malice: Update (Pre-ordering & Launch)

Cover by Jaime Jones. Love it!

The Malice is coming out in Hardback and ebook on the 19th of May! To celebrate I'll be having a launch event at Waterstones Covent Garden where I'll be interviewed by Emma. There will also be drinks and nibbles, including The Malice cupcakes! I will of course be signing books, and I've been working on a new doodle…

Tickets cost £3 and you can book here. Please come!

 

I'm quite fond of the back too.

For those of you unable to come, the book is available for pre-order from Amazon and Waterstones, Forbidden Planet, and Goldsboro are doing another limited edition run as well! 

 

 

 

 

And if you're thinking that you've not yet read The Vagrant, there's never been a better time. It's currently on offer as part of the Kindle Spring Sale, yours for only £2.99!

Fun times!

The last few weeks have been pretty great. The Vagrant is now out in the world and entirely out of my hands! This is both amazing and terrifying. It feels a bit like the book is crowdsurfing. It may sail majestically across a sea of supportive hands into a glorious sunset, or it may be dropped and left to languish on the floor, out of sight, trampled by a thousand feet.

Either way I have no control of it anymore.

And while this has scared the pants off me, I’ve been blown away by the general warmth and loveliness of friends, family and the internet in general.

The London launch at Forbidden Planet went well*. Highlights included: lots of smiley people, some incredible cocktails (Apple Pies and Fallen Angels FTW!) and a ridiculously beautiful barman. And, thanks to magic beyond my comprehension**, I awoke the next day without hangover!

 

 

Since then, the warm and fuzzy feelings have been kept alive by various people checking in. It’s hard to describe what it’s like when someone else reads your book and then gets in touch to say nice things about it. But it’s a real gift.

I love the goat here too.

And I’ve had my first piece of fan art! 'The Hammer that Walks.' Drawn by the wonderful Kareem Mahfouz***.

 

 

So, now that the launch is over and I’ve (mostly) recovered, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate all of the people now taking The Vagrant out into the wider world. Massive thanks to everyone who went and bought a copy. And to all who tweet about it, post about it, email, message, shout, sing, review or otherwise help spread the word:

YOU ARE AWESOME!
