Seven Wonders is just eleven weeks away from release in the UK – and on the official release date, Thursday 6th September, I’m having a launch at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London!
Starting at 6pm, I’ll be reading from the book, having a general chitchat, and signing books, all the while possibly swigging from the strongest cup of coffee ever prepared on Earth (as this is the day after I get back from WorldCon in Chicago). You can read the official post from Angry Robot here.
But wait, there’s more! Seven Wonders is getting the limited edition hardcover treatment! Just 100 gorgeously wonderful hardbacks will be printed, exclusively for Forbidden Planet. The hardback will be available to buy on the night, and they’re going to go fast – whether you can attend the event or not, you can pre-order your hardback here to ensure you get your hands on a copy. There will also be regular B-format paperbacks (the same size as Empire State) available for sale.
And if that wasn’t enough, the limited hardback also has something special inside – a new short story starring the Cowl called A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The ComicCon. This story will only be published in the limited hardback – you won’t find it anywhere else.
As well as this UK launch, there will be a one in the US as well – if you’re going to be in the Chicago area around late August/early September, stay tuned! In the meantime, get your Forbidden Planet orders in. A Facebook event page for the Forbidden Planet launch will be set up in a little while if you feel like RSVPing – I’ll put the link up here when it goes live.
