The cover of the paper version of Under a Dark Sky

Under a Dark Sky is available to buy in print!

Posted on The printed version of my novel Under a Dark Sky is now available and ready to be ordered from both Bokus Adlibris!
Why not pick up a copy for yourself or someone you really like?
It makes a great gift, and also doubles as a very stylish beer mat.

Of course, for the more modern minds out there, it's also available as an eBook.

The print preview has finally arrived

Posted on I just received the printed preview copy of Under a Dark Sky in the post and I've got to say I'm very pleased with the result!
The size is good, the print is good and the weight is very good. The paper quality is amazing, and the only thing missing is the classic print smell. That's the only downside of print on demand, I guess.

I ordered it through the new self publishing service Type & Tell, and I'm very impressed with their commitment to service and quality.

Next on my agenda is ordering the distribution package that allows you, dear readers, to buy it from your local book shop.
And then fame and fortune awaits. Hooray!

This is your chance to listen to none other than Stephen Hawking reading the first chapter of Under a Dark Sky.
Never before has my novel sounded so good.

Under a Dark Sky has been sent to the printers!

Posted on I just sent the manuscript for Under a Dark Sky to the printers, and if it goes through the technical quality check there should be a printed version available for purchase from your favourite physical book store in the not too distant future.

I'm printing it through the new Swedish self publishing service Type & Tell, which so far has been a very nice experience.
Type & Tell is still in beta and there are a few bugs as may be expected, but I'm very impressed with their customer support and the bugs have been promptly fixed.
Good stuff and a sign of their commitment to quality!

Vote for the print cover!

Posted on I'm currently working on getting the paper version of Under a Dark Sky ready to send to the printers. Before I can do that I need to decide on a cover, and this is where you come in, dear reader!

Alas, another rejection letter...

Posted on I just got another rejection letter from a publisher.
This time it was Baen books who gracefully declined. I'm still waiting for a reply from one more publisher and four literary agents, so there is still hope.
