Sheesh. I didn't know the Aussie dollar was that weak against the GBP... the colouring book may be 9 pounds and 99 pence, but in Oz land, it is $25.65. :cry:

Drat it, Aussie dollar! Get stronger, dammit! *jumps up and down on the Aussie dollar* :devil:

Someways behind everyone else on current news as usual but I will absolutely buy the Small Gods graphic book. Maybe the colouring book though I don't colour in as a rule. Not the quote book. I couldn't get through the first Long Earth book and haven't bothered with the rest.

7. Author Joanne Harris (via Twitter) has confirmed she has written a new introduction for Wyrd Sisters. We don't have a release date for
this yet - but we suspect it will be sometime in 2017.

It also looks like the new paperback editions of Mort and Guards! Guards! we mentioned last month will now be released in 2017 as
Amazon have put back the release dates listed on their website by a year.

8. The 18th May 2016 sees the launch of the French translation of The Shepherd's Crown. There will be a launch event in Paris at Librairie La dimension fantastique at 18.30. Not sure how many French folks we have here, but just in case... :)

There is an awesome launch pack for those who have pre-ordered a copy of the book via the store. It contains a bee bag, a bookmark, a sticker sheet, a bookplate and a bee badge.

Patrick Couton (the translator) will be in store doing a book signing.

For more information go to the Facebook event page at: https://www.facebook.com/events/568424949986384

...and that's all for now, folks! :)
