Blindspace Publishes in Paperback!

Yesterday, Blindspace, Book 2 in the Common series, was published in paperback format! This is the mass-market paperback version – the leaner, smaller, cheaper version of the book that’s more readily accessible for bookstores and readers alike. It should already be on the shelves in the UK/Ireland, and will be releasing in a few days time in Australia/New Zealand, with Canada to follow shortly.

The Broken Binding will have signed editions, with each page being lovingly defaced with my bespoke handcrafted signature. Alternatively, you can get the book straight from Gollancz’s website, with all the purchasing options available. I can also sign and personalize copies of Blindspace (and Stormblood) through my wonderful local indie SFF bookseller, Galaxy Bookshop.

If you good good people actually *have* purchased the book already, leaving a review on Amazon and Goodreads and Audible or on your channel/blog page, etc, would be extremely helpful. Algorithms are spiteful, fickle bastards, but feeding a healthy amount of reviews through their greedy maws is hugely beneficial for us authors, as well as readers and publishers.

Failing that, asking your local library to stock my books is also extremely helpful. It allows people who might be financially unable to get a hold of reading material, and is a way to give back to libraries. 

I do have some news about Book 3, aka, WOLFSKIN, including tentative chapter titles and some details about where the story is heading, and what it’s shaping up to be. For now, I’m keeping those details exclusively for newsletter subscribers. So if you want the juicy details, you can sign up here.

Jeremy Szal has a . . . book club?

I’ve finally gotten off my arse and launched my newsletter/book club/email list. It’s so everyone who likes my stuff (surprisingly, such people exist) can remain in touch, hear about upcoming book releases, early cover reveals, etc. I’ll also be doing free giveaways, posting free short stories, and posting news in advance. In addition, all subscribers will get a free novelette that’s set in the world of The Common, and acts as a sort of prequel to STORMBLOOD.

It’ll be the best way to hear what I’m up to, as I despise WordPress and don’t see myself sticking around here for long.

I’ll be sending these updates very infrequently – perhaps three to four times a year, but I’m still ironing out the kinks.

Stormblood US Book Launch with Mysterious Galaxy

The great Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore is hosting the virtual US launch of STORMBLOOD tonight, on April 6 at 7pm PT, along with my good mate Jackson Ford, aka Rob Boffard. It’s free to attend, so if you’re keen to watch us talk nonsense about beers and books and roast each other senseless, do come along.

The link to register for the event is here.

Oh, and all copies of STORMBLOOD with Mysterious Galaxy will include signed bookplates, since I know some of you guys like that.

STORMBLOOD US launch!

After nearly 2 years (thanks COVID), STORMBLOOD will *finally* be releasing locally in the US and Canada in print format! In actual bookstores!

Even better, Mysterious Galaxy in CA will have signed copies available in a few weeks time. So, if a gnarly military SF/space opera adventure about two estranged brothers on opposing sides of a drug war looks up your alley, and if having my chicken scrawl signature defacing your book happens to be your thing, you can pre-order a copy here.

Other stores that have signed copies include:

Borderlands Books

White Dwarf Books

Barnes and Nobles, Lafayette IN

Considering this is basically a soft relaunch for the book, pre-orders are hugely hugely helpful. I can’t understate how essential they are for newer authors, especially with indie SFF bookstores.

BLINDSPACE Hardback Available at Goldsboro

At last, it can be announced! The fabulous Goldsboro books are doing a special, limited hardback run of BLINDSPACE, just as they did with STORMBLOOD, with fabulous dark-purple sprayed edges. They’re all accompanied by my hand-crafted, vintage, bespoke signature, with some witty turns of phrase included for good measure. I do it for you, dear readers! I do it for you!

There’s only going to be 250 copies available (one of which is MINE), so if you’re looking for a hardback edition I do suggest you grab one quickly. . .

You can go ahead and buy it on the Goldsboro website, here.
