Shameless self promotion – cover update and other news
My publisher got the proof copy of Without Alice back from the printers and he wasn’t happy with the way it looked. He thought the type was too hard to read on the cover so he adjusted the cover design until the problem was solved. I love the updated cover because it makes me feel as if I am looking in at the characters inside Without Alice.
It wont be long now until copies of Without Alice will be available. Initially they will be sold exclusively from my publisher’s website until the official publication date on the 4th October. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for Without Alice then send me an email at djkirkby (at) gmail (dot) com and I will notify you when the first copies are ready to come live on your bookshelf.

The London launch party for Without Alice has been confirmed for October 4th 2010 and will be held at the Big Green Bookshop.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at the launch parties.
