Angry Robot and Titan Books present: the HANG WIRE and THE BURNING DARK joint book launch!

As you know, I’ve got two books out in 2014 – Hang Wire, an urban fantasy from Angry Robot, and The Burning Dark, a dark space opera from Titan (in the UK; Tor in the US). Their release dates are pretty close together in the UK – February 6th for Hang Wire, and March 25th for The Burning Dark. Which is tricky.

So, we’re throwing a party!

For one night, Angry Robot and Titan are joining forces to host a double book launch at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London on Thursday 6th March, 2014, 6pm.

But… have you spotted it yet?

Yep. This is your chance to get hold of The Burning Dark nearly THREE WEEKS prior to publication. The Titan paperback will be on sale at Forbidden Planet. Stock will be limited. When they are gone, they are gone. But if you can make it in, you’ll be among the first in the world to buy the book. It’s not out anywhere – UK or North America – until March 25th.

Here’s the cover for the Titan edition:


So – this is your chance to grab it, nice and early!

Oh, and there is more, too.

Also released that night is the limited edition hardcover of Hang Wire. This features a cover in alternate colours, and is limited to just 100 copies, all signed and numbered. This hardcover is exclusive to Forbidden Planet.


The regular paperback of Hang Wire will be available as well, of course.


And… there’s still more.

There will be… drinks! Nibbles! Surprises! Giveaways! Surprise giveaways!

It’s going to be a lot of fun.

A Facebook event page will be set up shortly, although you don’t need to RSVP to attend. If you can’t make it, you can still order your copies of Hang Wire and The Burning Dark direct from Forbidden Planet.

And… one more thing.

Everybody who comes to Forbidden Planet will go into the draw for my giant pre-order contest (even though it’s after the official release of Hang Wire). I’m keeping the details of the contest prize a secret until January 6th, but trust me, you will want to be in the draw. The same rules will apply – buy one book, get one contest entry. Buy both books, get four contest entries. Buy the limited edition Hang Wire hardcover… well, I’ll have to think of something special! Full details of the contest will be posted in the New Year.

See you at Forbidden Planet!
