Phew, calm down, PJ. It's all good now. But the fact is, while the act of putting your book online for the world to see may seem like the icing on the cake for the slow-cooking process that is fiction writing, it just feels like you've reached the end of a long marathon only to be greeted by the riot police. Enforcing a ban on marathon runners.
Anyway, enough ranting. I come here running from the battle of Marathon (figuratively speaking) with good tidings! Tick is now available in Paperback!
But wait, there's more! (Cue flash-bang commercial music) This paperback edition isn't
just a soft-cover version of the same story. Ooh no. There's plenty here for you completionists too: this edition comes complete with an extra story also based in the world of 'Tick', 'The Trials of a Midtail'. And It's not some flimsy mini-story either; it is a rather chunky 25,000 words. To put that into perspective, the main novel of 'Tick' is 94,000 words. Not bad, right?
And there's still more! There's another short story in there too: 'Paganini's Strings', a short story I wrote a for a Waterstone's competition a while ago. Didn't win, I think I lost out to some piece that mentioned 'coffee' and 'existentialism' 7 times, making it an instant classic. Still, I hope you enjoy it.
