Sold Out

I’ve had some readers contact me wondering why The Paradise Will wasn’t appearing on the Robert Hale web-site.ย  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.ย  Alternatively, please contact Robert Hale Ltd through their contact page here to place pre-orders for additional print runs.ย  They will reprint if enough advance orders are received via their web site, or from other sellers such as Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚

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