The Split Worlds is Coming!

Look, look! That's my wife that is. 😀

It seems like eons since I hosted a Split Worlds story here. Now the first Split Worlds novel is launching and things are pretty crazy in our house as a result!

Obviously, I’m chuffed to bits and dead excited for Emma. I’m also really excited about coming to the London launch at Forbidden Planet on the 8th March. Hopefully some of you will be coming too. It’d be great to catch up and put real faces to some of the avatars I’ve been chatting with over the last year and a half.

Anyway, if you fancy getting your hands on a copy of the book, Emma has a prize draw for anybody who pre-orders. Details below.



Pre-order a copy of Between Two Thorns for a chance to win a great prize!


Pre-order a copy of Between Two Thorns and you'll be entered into a prize draw. If you win, you’ll have a character named after you in "All Is Fair" – the third Split Worlds novel (released October 2013) – and a special mention at the end of the book.


How to Enter


Pre-order a copy of the book from your favourite retailer (if you pre-order from Forbidden Planet you'll get a signed copy).


If you order from Forbidden Planet or (for ebooks) you don't need to do anything else – Angry Robot will take care of your entry for you. If you pre-order from anywhere else you'll need to email a copy of your order confirmation to: thorns AT angryrobotbooks.comand they'll assign a number to you.

  1. You've got an intensely talented wife, Peter. And that's a great idea for a pre-order contest. Did she and Angry Robot brew that up themselves, or is there precedent for pre-order-based naming? I've watched friends auction off name spots for charity before, but not as pre-order incentives. Very clever, regardless.

  2. Nice coverto art, and congrats on the launch!

  3. Cover art, not coverto art (sorry).
