Good news – the specials and extras from Poppet have finally arrived safe and sound, in spite of going off the radar (apparently the tracking number went dead for a while). So i will be getting all the preorders packed up and mailed out starting from Monday.

To make up for the delay for some of you, I will be popping an extra Eibonvale paperback in as many of them as i can. It will be a bit random, but i only have a certain number to hand!

Before all that though, there’s just time for a bit of book porn. One of the perks of this business is that i get to play with them en mass. Most of you you only get one copy. I get to roll in them (metaphorically – usually)! Heheh! So here they are!

Rustblind 5

With our next two books well in preparation now, we are announcing a new special offer on pre-orders of both these titles. Like Tallest Stories, this will be a time-sensitive special! The first 26 copies of both books will be hand-lettered, 25 of which will be available to the public and ONLY via pre-order. In addition, Poppet will be putting together a set of special personalised sheets for inclusion with Moonshine Express, as well as a few other specials (free book and a charm bracelet) for the FIRST person to order. I am also currently planning a nice treat for the person who orders the first copy of Rustblind and Silverbright – watch the blog for details. There will also be a nice discount for customers who purchase both books together or add another Eibonvale title to the order.

Here’s how it works. I am opening the books up for ordering on Saturday the 22nd June at 6PM London time. At that moment, I will launch a link to the ordering buttons on this page (you may have to refresh your browser). Letters will be allocated in precisely the order that orders are received, so you will have to be very quick if you want to bag the coveted first copy. Even before I have publicly announced it, it is clear that there is going to be a scrum at 6pm!

Please click here for more info – and bookmark this page ready for the fight on Saturday!

Moonshine 03

Moonshine 03

Cover not final!

Making the selection of works for our anthology of railway stories Rustblind and Silverbright was a challenging process and many interesting stories fell by the wayside.  In the case of this spectacularly dark, lively and brash novella by Poppet, which was just too big for the anthology, we decided to bring it out as a separate book – Moonshine Express.  This will be available individually and alongside Rustblind and Silverbright, making a very good pairing.  This is Poppet’s first appearance in hardcover – or as she put it, “There’s so little ‘virgin’ left in my author world, and David is popping the hardcover cherry! A first! That totally rocks!”  A phrase I will just leave hanging in the air with no further comment.

Coincidentally, I am hoping that this book will launch a new line of Eibonvale novellas (about which more later). Look forward to pre-ordering the hardcover of BOTH titles starting from 22nd June at 6PM, including some nice special touches provided by Poppet – but I will be formally announcing that in the next post!
