Dear friends and followers, I just looked at the calendar and realised: there are, as I type this, just eighteen days (and a couple of hours) to go until 31 July, when "A Gentleman’s Murder" is officially released into the wild.
If you happen to be in Montreal for the week following, there will be a book signing and launch event at the Indigo bookstore downtown (Place Montreal Trust, 1500 McGill College Avenue) on Saturday, 04 August from 1 pm to 4 pm.
In the meantime, if you’re in the U.S., there’s a GoodReads Giveaway happening with 25 free copies of the book to be won. Check it out and tell your friends.
And speaking of GoodReads, we’ve got a few reviews there already from readers with advance copies. Reviews have so far been complimentary -- let’s hope the trend keeps up! And I hope you’ll consider adding your own when you’re done.
I thought long and hard about the cover...
Should I stick with the crown of blood or should I head in a different direction? I chose a different direction. And this... is the result.
Why constellations? Why is there a crown in the sky? Why is Thom standing on grass? OK, so I don’t know why he’s standing on grass. But for the first two questions, the answers are in the book. I guess its safe to say, this cover reflects the content of the book more than the title itself. And that... makes it even more awesome. Oh, I can’t wait to see it in print! Can you?
Aside from this new cover, the content of the book is well on its way to publication. It has been sent to the media and influencers for the pre-launch marketing campaign. So, the next time you hear from me, the book will be on its way to you.

Well, that’s about it for this short update. I hope you like the cover, as much as I and the team at Inkshares do. Until you hear from me again, have a wonderful week ahead!
