'More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea', is about to be released in what is called 'Mass Market' edition. This is a cheaper and smaller format of the book – hopefully it'll mean a bump in sales, and therefore a bump in royalties coming to me.
It's the same book, just a handier size.
It is released on April the first (yes, yes, I know…) and if I may dare to be so bold, would make a lovely gift for your loved ones, neighbours, acquaintances and random people in the street.
It's being stocked by Waterstones and Smiths and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a supermarket or two might pick it up.
The last time I pimped my book here it shot to the #1 slot in the pre-order charts and it gave my ego a much needed massage, as well as giving my publisher a smile (which I think he needed, after all he has to put up with me).
And of course, you can download it for nothing from this fine site.
(OK, pimping done – back to the more usual whinging).
For those that are interested in how the publishing industry works – can I point you to a series of blog posts by Charlie Stross, collected for your delectation on my ebook site
