Hello! I’m back in Manchester after a delightful holiday week in Cornwall involving lots of beer, sunshine, sightseeing, and cookies. Colin and I will be back on the road come Thursday (Swanseastones Con! Yay!), which also happens to be the official release day for GOD OF GNOMES (finally!). Here’s a quick update for you in the meantime.
Earlier this month, we revealed Gnomes’ final cover over at The Fantasy Hive. Alberto Besi’s extraordinary artwork and eye-catching typography was received with much-deserved enthusiasm by the fantasy book community! Here it is in all its glory:
Colourful, fun, and just a little bit different from your usual fantasy fare – the cover perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the book.
Pre-Order Gnomes Now!
God of Gnomes is releasing on September 26th – in just three days’ time! If you can’t wait that long, or are worried you’ll forget, never fear: you can now pre-order Gnomes in all three formats (ebook, paperback, and audiobook). Rumour has it that the paperback version is shipping early, but you didn’t hear that from me. 😉
If you’re still itching to consume my words via your eyeballs, I have even more good news for you: there’s an exclusive excerpt from the first chapter of God of Gnomes over on The Fantasy Hive right now! I’ll also be posting a few more free chapters on Royal Road later in the week for those who’re undecided as to whether they want to read more.
I’m also working on a prequel short story set in the God Core universe. The story – along with a whole bunch of others by my fellow publishing siblings – will be FREE when you sign up to the Portal Books newsletter.
That’s it from me! For today, anyway. Now please enjoy this video of me ziplining 100 metres above the ground while on holiday last week. (You’ll have to imagine the screamed profanities, I’m afraid, since they don’t show up on the audio.)
