I have now heard a few reactions from the first readers of News from Gardenia, I am more than thrilled to say they have, so far, been universally positive.
I am collecting Tweets from people who have read the book but I’ve made one fatal error. In my enthusiasm I have collected the Tweets, but failed to record the Tweeter.
If, by any chance you recognise the messages below please leave a comment and tell me your Twitter name and which message is yours and I will attempt to rectify the situation.
And if you are one of the billions of earth dwellers who hasn’t yet got a copy of News from Gardenia, you can still buy the hardback at Unbound. It will be available in July as a paperback just like any book. It’ll be in book shops and on Amazon etc, plus there will be Kindle/e-book versions and an audiobook.
Just as a taster the first 2 chapters of the audiobook are free, if you like it you can buy the entire audiobook for £5.99 ($9.60 or €7.30) from Audioboo
