Getting signed books at the Broken Binding and Galaxy Bookstore!

I sign as many copies of my book as I can. Unfortunately, that usually extends to bookstores in my local area, or stores that I can visit physically. In some circumstances, I’ve been able to send off signed bookplates to bookstores to be glued into the books. Jeff Bezos has enough money, so I’m very happy to go the extra effort to sign books if it means more readers support indie and SFF specialist bookstores.

These are the places you can, as far as I know, get signed copies of my book:

Galaxy Bookstore. Located in Sydney, Australia, have agreed to continuously stock signed copies of my book. They ship nationally and internationally. I’m more than happy to provide dedications or personalized signatures for anyone who wants a copy. Order a copy from them with any special requests, and I’ll pop by and sign them for you. It’s really no bother, and it’s a great way to get signed books sent off to readers who’d never otherwise be able to meet me in person.

The Broken Binding. Located in the UK, they’ve got plenty of signed copies of my book. I can’t personalize them, alas, but they’re the only folks in the UK who have signed bookplates. They’re a great indie bookstore and I highly, highly recommend checking them out.

STORMBLOOD Cover Reveal!

The day has arrived. The good good people at Gollancz have revealed the cover art for my debut novel I’ve been jabbering on about for almost a full length of the Earth’s rotation. And it is gorgeous. Feast them eyes:

Stormblood

It’s very blue.

I had extensively input on crafting the cover. We agreed to go for the “Gotham in space” aesthetic. Dark and moody, but slick and adventurous. Containing a sense of noir mystery, underpinned by a sense of exuberance and widescreen exploration. And they knocked it out of the park and into orbit. I asked them to make it as screaming blue as possible, and they jumped the rail to outdo themselves. I mean, look at it! Those spaceships! Those buildings! That mist! All credit goes to Gollancz and Blacksheep for their stellar work.

I’ll do a write up on the finer details of crafting the cover, but for now, I’m going to bask in the blue glow of this very fine cover. Gollancz has a full proper write up, if you’re inclined to check it out.

Pre-orders have also opened! I cannot understate how disproportionately helpful they are for debut authors, and essential keeping us afloat. If you do pre-order, I’ll owe you a life debt (and by life debt, I mean buy you a drink or send you a bookplate). If you can, support your local bookstore, but you can also order it online:

In the meantime, I’m going to look into framing this thing on my wall.
