ISLANDERS - my first YA novel

YA fictionPosted by John Barlow Thu, November 01, 2012 19:33:42

Here's the cover of my new novel, ISLANDERS. I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in this case please do.

ISLANDERS is ready to go, and we already have a bunch of reviews and other features lined up for the launch date, November 16th.

And how's this for an early review! The reviewer, Vicki, is a school librarian. There's no better source of opinion on YA fiction than that. What a great start to the publicity campaign!

Right. I'm off to Madrid, not that this is relevant to anything...

Hi Debbie. yep, all the big sites (Sony, Kobo, Apple...). BTW are you Debbie from Seville? I ask because I remember talking to you about the book when I was there last Feb. (There's no way of knowing your IP/email etc. from the blog stats.)

Hi John. I've just read Vicki's review. Wow! Will it be on ePub sites (i.e. not Amazon)? Looking forward to it. Debbie.

Since you've read it about a dozen times, I would have thought you'd know, Sam! (NB helps run Storm Books)

Looking forward to it, JB. What's it about then...?
