I had wanted to wait on this until I could announce the two things together, but a few people have been asking why The Glass Republic isn’t available on US Amazon, so I’ll say it now.
The reason TGR isn’t up on US Amazon is that I, and my US publisher Flux are parting ways. This is a business rather than a personal decision, and a wholly amicable one. I had a blast working with all the guys there, and I wish them well.
I should (hopefully) be able to announce who’ll be publishing the Skyscraper Throne trilogy in North America going forwards soon, we’re still working out a few contract details.
The upshot is though, that they’re unlikely to be able to put it out over there until next year.
I’m really, really sorry if you live in the US and Canada and were hoping to be able to read The Glass Republic this summer. My agent and I did everything I could to make that happen, but ultimately it was beyond our control.
On a personal note, I’m very sad that the cover Flux made for the book that we revealed in January now won’t see shelves. I think it was perfect, and a good example of the kind of cover YA needs more of.
As ever, you guys are the best.
