Yes. That’s right. A mysterious package arrived in the mail today. I was hoping it was what I had been waiting to receive for several weeks, but I wasn’t sure. Regardless, it didn’t take long for the little brown box to exchange hands at the front door. It took even less time for me to tear the box open to look at the contents. Well, not quite. First, I had to get some photos for all of you.
Unless you’ve skipped to the bottom of this post, you’ll be wondering exactly what it is. With a big smile on my face, I can tell you it was what I was hoping for. So, drumroll please … it was the paperback version of They Won’t Be Missed! The final proof copies before it goes live for sale to all of you. They look fantastic. The cover came out even better than expected, and it’s a thrill to finally have something in a tangible form. So far I’ve resisted the temptation to place it between Harlan Coben and Stieg Larsson on the bookshelf (I’ll be waiting for the comments asking why those two authors are side by side!).
This definitely pushes me to crack on with the next book for all of you. I should also note that the paperback isn’t live to the public yet, but I’ll be sure to let you know when it is available, which will be very soon.
Let me know how you think it looks in the comments or via e-mail.
