It’s only about a month until the launch of ‘Space Case’!
I have just received my first copies of the book, and it looks absolutely awesome. I know I’ve posted the cover image here before, but here’s the book itself (with a bit of a ’2001: A Space Odyssey reference’) If you don’t know the reference, go ask your parents and they will explain to you why this picture is so clever and hilarious.
The photo still doesn’t quite do it justice, as you can’t see the sparkliness of it. (I should point out that the book does not come with adoring apes.)
I should also point out that the first reviews have started to come in and that Kirkus gave the book a starred review! What’s that? you ask. Well, it’s very good. Just imagine that Kirkus is the most important book-reviewing company in the world, and that, rather than use a system of 1-5 stars like many people do (like Amazon and Goodreads) where one star means ‘crappy’ and 5 stars means ‘excellent’, Krikus only uses one star. You can still get a perfectly good unstarred review from them (which I have) but a star means ‘really, really good’.
Finally, here’s a sneak peak at the inside of the book itself. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past few months, Space Case takes place in… space. On the moon, to be exact. On Moon Base Alpha, to be even more exact. And since Moon Base Alpha is so important to the story, a map had to be done of it. So, here it is…
Excited yet? It’s coming. And keep an eye here for details about the cities I’ll be visiting!
