Fantastic Folk Friday

Aaron Polson's YA 'The House Eaters' is now available as an ebook or (major squee) paperback. Check out the fantastic cover to the left (or should that be ' to the right' - I get confused when looking at a screen. Who am I kidding, I get confused when giving taxi drivers directions).

I had the pleasure of beta reading this book and have recently re-experienced it. A definite must read. It's available from Virtual Tales and Amazon. I've grabbed a signed copy from the man himself.

Now, head over to Simon Bestwick's blog and offer him a hearty congratulations. He's got himself a pretty awesome book deal.

*The above confirms I know the best people.
**As you're one of the people I know, you already know this.
***If you're not one of the people I know, I bet you're still pretty awesome (unless you're a spammer and then you suck or a spanner and then you're a tool).

That book does look awesome. For some reason the cover has quite a nostalgic feel to it. Like the kind of books I used to see in Libraries when I was a kid.

Anyone who can write horror for kids gets a round of applause from me, I just don't know how to turn off the 'eww, gross out' switch.

The cover has a Scooby Doo vibe and the story, it rocks.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks for the signal boost, Cate.

I'll be sending Scooby snacks post haste. ;)

That Polson guy puts books out faster than I can read! Just as well they're good. :)

India Drummond said...

Oooh, that is a great cover!

Your spanner comment cracked me up. :D

Cate Gardner said...

Anytime, Aaron :D

He is a busy bee, Mike. And now he's not editing as much, he'll probably write twice as much. I hope.

Ha! Thanks, India.

Awesome. I have to pick this up. And yes, I am ashamed I haven't already.

Tyhitia Green said...

Yay, Aaron. Gee, I need to check the Internet daily. I am sooo late on this. :-/

I need to post this myself.

Cate Gardner said...

You're going to love it, Anthony.

:D Tyhitia.

Hahaha the *** comments made me laugh so hard, my G&T almost exited through the nose.

Which would've hurt. But it was still funny!
