Happy Friday! Every week, I post a photo with something I got up to recently. More are on my instagram, which usually consists of cats, food, art, books, and travel.
OK, this is three photos but just LOOK at how pretty the finished copies of the UK edition of False Hearts are! There’s shiny silver foil, spot varnish, a red belly band and RED STAINED PAGES. I still haven’t received my copies (come on, postman, bring them today), so I’ve been drooling at these photos. I can’t wait to hold physical copies and cuddle them and sniff their pages. What, that’s not weird, right?
Elsewhere on the internet:
If you’re in the UK, you can win 1 of 10 copies of finished False Hearts over at Maximum Pop! Books. There’s also a Q&A with me and I talk a little about Shattered Minds, the next Pacifica thriller, for the first time.
Maximum Pop also has Pantomime & Shadowplay featured on this quiz about LGBT+ YA.
Tor.com has also put up the first chapter of False Hearts if you haven’t read it yet.
If you want a signed first edition of the UK version of False Hearts, you can get them at either Goldsboro Books or Forbidden Planet. If you want either the UK or the US versions out of those territories, a reminder that the Book Depository offers free international shipping (but these won’t be signed copies).
The book comes out in 18 days in the US and 20 days in the UK. :-O I’m going to be pretty promo-heavy the next few weeks, but I’m not going to apologise for it. I’ve worked hard on this book and I want to give it the best chance it can to find readers. Go go, Bonkers Book!
