Some Theatrical Belly Flips

You may have witnessed a wee bit of butt-shaking excitement last night when I discovered that Theatre of Curious Acts (the hardback) is available to pre-order on Amazon (just the US site at the moment). Oh my!

The book will be available as a hardback, paperback, and ebook and they'll all be released (fingers crossed, things going to plan etc etc) on December 21st or thereabouts.

And there was more butt shaking this lunchtime when I read Pablo Cheesecake's review over at The Eloquent Page..."From the battlefields of Europe, to the end of the world, this novel is a seamless blend of physical and psychological horror that will leave a distinct impression..." It's a seriously awesome review. Me and my boys can battle anything now - dragons, war, death.


Theatre means so much to me - I love Barbed Wire Hearts and Strange Men but both those books had easy rides to publication (or at least that's how it felt - or rather, a magical ride) whereas poor Theatre often felt like the book that would never be until it landed on Hadley Rille's shores. Have I said how much I love the book. And my boys, especially Daniel & Swan and poor, poor Ken. Ken breaks my heart so don't you dare hate him (okay, you can if you want). Assuming you read their story that is. I hope you do. And if you do, let me know if you love Ken (and if you don't, it's all my fault and not his).

Magic indeed. That's how it happened--you confunded your editors!

Kidding, of course. You deserve every ounce of praise which tumbles your way.

Cheers!

Don't hate Ken. Wise words.

It's on my Christmas list, so I'll be destorying those santa-cams (he sees you when you're sleeping? scary) and swaping his naughty and nice lists to make sure I get a copy. I can't wait to read it.

Ray Cluley said...

Destorying? Sounds like a writer's worst nightmare. I meant destroying. Oops.

Cate Gardner said...

He thanks you, Katey

The hex I put on you should be lifting now, Aaron. You may feel dizzy for a time but that will pass.

Woot! Eric

Thanks, Simon

Ha! Ken :D

Destorying!!! Shudder, Ray. (And thank you)

Been running around the internet tonight reading the reviews. I'm really excited to read this book! Sounds like you're knocking em dead. I'll definitely be buying a copy next week when it comes out.
