Thumb available in paperback!

Facebook Twitter Email


Thumb is now available in paperback from Amazon, priced $9.99 in the US, £7.99 in the UK and €11.17 in Europe. I confess to being biased but I’m really happy with the quality – the book looks and feels nicer than a lot of standard trade paperbacks. Anyway, the links to buy the book are below. If you do buy it and enjoy it, please spread the word to others you think may be interested, and also let me know what you thought.

It should gradually come on line in the other European Amazon sites, the French Amazon says that stock is currently ruptured – I failed my ‘O’ level French with an unclassified mark (in the words of Nanny Slagg, I was ‘lowest of the low’), but I’m hoping this is French for not available and doesn’t refer to the poor guy who’s had to cart boxes of my books around.


You can also see some bookmarks in the photo at the top of the post. I had these printed off to hand out to people as I thought they would be more useful than just flyers or posters. If you would like to help me promote Thumb and you know of Science Fiction fans in need of bookmarks please let me know and I will send you some.

      Thank you! I was surprised at how chunky the paperback is – it runs to 372 pages – and the quality is really nice. The only drawback is that because Createspace use better quality paper it makes the book physically heavier than a standard novel, not by much but it gives it a noticeable heft. Great for self defence I suppose, but it might tip you over the edge of the Ryanair weighing scales.
