After initially being told it wasn't, we found out this week that Septic Isle is being picked up by Diamond distribution after all. This means that it'll be in discerning stores around October time. To say I'm chuffed about this is an understatement. When, at first, I was told that it wasn't being picked up, I was gutted, it seemed a shame that, despite good reviews, a book I'd been working on for such a long time was only going to be seen by relatively few people. Now, it's going to be in shops here and in the States, and hopefully it'll do well.
Also, now it's going to have a second print, it's given me a chance to draw a new inside cover for the book. The original one was done quickly (saying that, though, the new one was done in less time, funnily enough, and it's miles better) and I grew to hate it more and more each time I saw it. The new one is the picture at the top of this post. Good, eh? Click on it to make it bigger. If only that worked for everything.
I've also done some character pictures this weekend for the website that'll be up and running soon to promote the book. I'll post those soon.
