Five Cool Facts About SKYBORN

My new book, Skyborn, is coming from Little Tiger Press in just over three weeks – on June 10th, to be precise! So, I decided to make a short video: Five Cool Facts About Skyborn, to introduce you to the book and its story world, and to give you a flavour of what it’s about. I hope you enjoy!

And don’t forget: if you pre-order your copy of SKYBORN from Halfway Up the Stairs Bookshop in Wicklow or from the Rocketship Bookshop in the UK, you’ll receive a signed and personalised bookplate to stick into the book, thereby transforming it (ta-daaaah!) into a signed copy. But, of course, you can pre-order SKYBORN just the same as you can pre-order or order any book: by calling into, or phoning, or emailing, or using carrier pigeons, or in any other way contacting your favourite bookshop or bookstore and asking them to organise getting a copy of the book to you. Booksellers are magicians, people. They can find literally anything. Try it!

Anyway. Without further ado, here are FIVE COOL FACTS ABOUT SKYBORN!

Today, August 22nd 2017, marks the date on which my first book was published in North America. Wahey!

I started this blog on August 20th, 2012, little expecting (though hoping, with all my heart) to one day be writing a post like this one; it’s poetic, and pleasing, and a source of such joy, to know that the dates so nearly coincide. Nearly exactly five years have passed since I started this odd journey, and this result is the one which, at times, I hardly let myself believe would ever happen.

I. Am. A. Published. Author!

Of course, the journey doesn’t end here. There are more stories to tell, more books to write, more dreams to chase. I hope to never be quite done.

If you’d like to check out the book I’ve spent all these years trying to usher out into the world, you can get yourself a copy on Indiebound or Amazon, or take a peep at its Goodreads page. I would love you to be part of my story – and if you could take the time to leave a review, or recommend the book to someone else (if, of course, you find that you don’t hate it), that would be wonderful. I’d love to know what you think of my lovable, loyal Thing, my eccentric, careful, anxious Emmeline, and all the ragamuffins they meet along the way.

As Thing would say, “Let the adventurin’ begin!” – and, naturally, thank you for coming this far with me. It’s been quite the ride. I’m glad to have had you along.
