Something marvellous arrived in the mail this afternoon – my signed hardback copy of The Blood of the Spear, an epic fantasy novel by my good friend and fellow author, Mark Timmony. I've been looking forward to this for ages, having helped Mark a little with beta reading and the occassional publishing question along the way. (Thank you very much, Mark for mentioning me on your acknowledgements page.)

I unboxed the book on my first ever Instagram live feed, which was an interesting experience unto itself.

Mark got the book printed with Ingram Spark, and I must say the quality is fabulous. The dust jacket with the book's incredible cover art just pops off the page – my video doesn't really do it justice.

You can grab this incredible book on Amazon.
