It’s out! Finally, this journey of many years (I forget exactly how many but it’s been through two house moves, a baby who is now at school and two and a half interim novels) is over.
New Gods is here. The culmination of the Anders Nordvelt trilogy is finally available to buy. Please don’t think me too forward if I’m prominent and liberal with the link.
I’m not expecting too much in the way of sales. The lower the expectations the more likely they are to be met, that’s one – possibly flawed – way of looking at it. But I know how much competition there is amongst new releases, how few copies of the previous books (available here, if you haven’t already snapped up yours) have sold. I’m not under any great illusions as to my own sway as an author and as a human. I’m just happy to have my work out there, (very) slowly accruing readers and being part of the canon of literature.
But today is a big day and should be marked. I am releasing a novel and, if I may be forgiven for so saying, a pretty darn good one at that.
I wish I could say that I’ll be celebrating with champagne and whizz-bangs and all sorts of high-jinx. Sadly I’m more likely to be struggling against copyediting deadlines and complaining about my daughter not going to bed on time. Life, as they say, goes on, whether or not we want it to.
But I have a novel out! Today! Get your grubby little mitts on it right now!
