Sold Out

I’ve had some readers contact me wondering why The Paradise Will wasn’t appearing on the Robert Hale web-site.  Having queried this, I’m pleased to say that due to heavy demand, the current print run of The Paradise Will has sold out at the publishers!

There are a very few copies still available via Amazon and The Book Depository.  Alternatively, please contact Robert Hale Ltd through their contact page here to place pre-orders for additional print runs.  They will reprint if enough advance orders are received via their web site, or from other sellers such as Amazon 🙂

Huge thanks to everyone who has ordered to date and made The Paradise Will a success.

Norm’s blog – Devil’s Cub by Georgette Heyer

Filed under: General News

Following on from Rosy Thornton’s great piece on Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, I was invited to contribute to Norman Geras’s excellent ‘Writer’s Choice’ series on his weblog, Norm’s Blog. Norm invites writers, journalists, poets or scholars to discuss a book that has been important to them. The series is now in its fourth year and I was delighted to be asked to take part.
