Delighted that early copies of Chris Walsh's The Dig Street Festival have been delivered. Under normal circumstances Chris and I would have met up for a coffee to get him to sign lots of copies... but we are having to do this by post/courier, a box at a time.
Please bear with us and rest assured that if you pre-ordered or you are a subscriber, your copy will be sent as soon as possible.
The e-book is also on its way! I'm proof-reading it at the moment... once I'm happy that it's good to go it will be available for pre-order from wherever you usually buy e-books. Early e-books can also be pre-ordered from the website bookshop. I'm aiming to fulfil all pre-ordered e-books a month or so before the publication date of 15 April.
Can't wait to get this book in front of readers...

Wonderful news today! Laura Laakso's Roots of Corruption has been long-listed in The Barbellion Prize!
"The Barbellion Prize is a book prize dedicated to the furtherance of ill and disabled voices in writing. The prize is awarded annually to an author whose work has best spoken of the experience of chronic illness and/or disability."
Laura lives with chronic conditions herself, and writes brilliantly in her series about her heroine Yannia's similar disabilities. This is such a well-deserved long-listing and Laura and I couldn't be happier.
It also couldn't have come at a better time... it's been such a tough year for all of us.
