Dear friends and family,
PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY OF PEGASUS FALLING TODAY!
There may only be 141 days left to go before London 2012, but booklovers have another, much closer, date to look forward to. Pegasus Falling, the first part of the Cypress Branches trilogy, launches in just 19 days and after a lot of hard work, and what seemed like an interminable wait, the first batch of books arrived this morning from the printers and I am very happy to announce that Pegasus Falling is now available to pre-order from the website. Head over to www.acuteanglebooks.co.uk/pegasusfalling to order your copy.
Pre-ordered books will be dispatched to arrive on launch day so this is the only way to guarantee receiving your copy before the official launch date of 26th March. Depending on how well the postal service is working, you may be lucky enough to receive your copy a day or two early (but I can’t make any promises!). Pre-ordering will be available until Wednesday 21st March 2012 when the site will revert to normal sales. All orders placed after 21st March will be dispatched from 26th March onwards, so hurry to make sure you bag your copy early.
THE DIGITAL EDITION
Those of you with Ereaders will be glad to know that Pegasus Falling is also going to be available on many devices. From launch, it will be available in the Amazon Kindle bookshop. Other devices and ebook services will follow in due course. Links to all available formats will be presented via the “Pegasus Falling Digital Edition” page on the website.
KEEP UP WITH ALL THE NEWS
A lot will be happening over the next couple of months as the PR campaign kicks into action. As I’m keen to keep these newsletters to no more than once a month, if you’d like to keep right up to date with all the news, you can:
• Follow @cypressbranches on Twitter and use the hashtag #PegasusFalling to discuss the book with your friends. Let’s get it trending!
• “Like” us on Facebook. Pegasus Falling now has its own Facebook page. Search Pegasus Falling, like the page and all the latest will be streamed straight to your newsfeed.
• Join the website and discuss the book in the Forum. Membership on the site is free and I’m keen to get people nattering about the book in the forum. Click on “Join this site” in the top left of the screen on the site and get the discussion going.
Facebook, Twitter and of course, the website itself will be updated regularly with news and photos and anything else happening. The newsletter will be sent out every so often with a digest of the latest in case you missed anything.
As ever, please feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone you think would be interested in the book. Everyone is welcome! And feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions or queries – the address to write to is contactusATacuteanglebooksDOTcoDOTuk.
I’ll be in touch again on 26th March to mark the launch day. Until then, best wishes to you all.
A note on the digital edition: We will not be selling ebooks directly from the website. Instead, we are making it available through third-party sites which specialise in selling ebooks.
