Lovely people, are you ready for me to demonstrate why I should never be an audiobook artist? And also prove that I’ve never had to say ‘voluminous’ out loud and therefore have no idea how it’s actually pronounced?
Yes? Then good! I have just the thing for you …
We’re into launch week for Gobbelino London & a Menace of Mermaids – only two days until things start getting a bit salty and piratical around here! I mean, not that they haven’t already – you can read the first two chapters here (chapter one) and here (chapter two) if you fancy a sneak peek and/or aren’t too sure about this whole mermaid thing. (But be warned – my mermaids, rather like my unicorns, are not … typical …)
But you came here for a short story, didn’t you?
Then we should get right down to it. Grab a cuppa – and possibly a broom – and make yourself comfortable. It’s time for a little …
Housekeeping – a Gobbelino London short story
Lovely people, I hope so much that you enjoyed my weird little tale. As mentioned, you can get your own copy via the link in the back of Gobbelino London & Menace of Mermaids, and then you don’t have to listen to me trip over words and fail miserably at voices.
Not pre-ordered your copy yet? Still want mermaids splashing into your ereader first thing Friday? No problems!
You should also see via those links that the paperbacks are now available to order at Amazon, and should be showing up very soon at other retailers if they haven’t already. Or, of course, you can ask your friendly local bookshop to order a copy in for you. And if you don’t have a friendly local bookshop but would like to support indie bookshops generally, Bookshop.org is a great option for buying print books.
And one final thing! As I also mentioned in the vid, I’m going to do a little Q&A in the Facebook group on Friday. I’ll share the vid to the page once we’re done, but if you’d like to join the group before then the link is here. Obviously we have lots of time differences going on, but I’ll be doing the chat at 6pm local time (Paris time – you should be able to find the local time for you at this link). If you have any questions you’d like me to cover, please pop them below, or let me know via the pinned post in the group.
Really, please ask me questions. It’s going to be very embarrassing if I have to make them up myself …
Until then – happy reading, lovely people!
