It’s been a joy seeing the Tweets from all the supporters of the book as they have received their copies, my tweet-stream runneth over.
I’ve also had many queries from people who have only just found out about it so I will endeavor to explain.
News from Gardenia was a crowd sourced publishing venture I did with Unbound which really is a little revolution in publishing. Authors pitch their book direct to readers, if you like the idea, you can pre-order or support the book before it’s completed.
When I started writing this book I really wanted to try a different approach to publishing, I’ve previously published 11 books through traditional methods with varying degrees of success, I wanted New from Gardenia to be very different.
I use a Kindle, so I wanted it to work on that (coming very soon) I also wanted it to be an audiobook (I listen to a lot of them) so I recorded it.
So, News from Gardenia is a proper, old school hardback, copies are available now through Unbound.
It is also an e-book, (yes, including Kindle) and an audiobook and both these formats will be released in the coming few days, but at present only through Unbound.
In mid July it will also be an old school paperback too.
All these various versions (paperback, e-book/Kindle) will be available through Amazon and similar online book distribution systems as well as in proper old school bookshops with shelves and assistants and tills and stuff in mid July.
The audiobook will be available very soon through Audioboo.
I will Tweet the links, I will post them here and on Google+
Once again I want to thank all the people who supported the book, without you, it truly would never have happened
