Strange Chemistry Launch


Strange Chemistry are go! A huge thanks to Amanda Rutter for inviting me to their launch party last night. It was great to mingle with authors and bloggers alike (and some booksellers too). We had readings from Kim Curran, Jonathan L. Howard and Laura Lam. There was even popping candy and tiny unicorns! I think we can all agree that we love the unicorns in the goodie bags.

The five launch titles are:


All the books will be available in paperback, audiobook and a variety of ebook formats so you can read them whichever way you like best. Amanda also hopes to get involved with Angry Robot's Clonefiles initiative which provides a DRM-free ebook for anyone buying the paperback in participating bookshops.

Following on from the launch titles (released during September, October and November) will be Broken by A.E. Rought and Pantomime by Laura Lam. I can't wait for Pantomime of which we got a taster of last night; circus fantasy!

Of course, you all want to know what was in the goodie bags, don't you? I believe the Angry Robot USB stick holds top secret information on how the robots will take over... or extracts from Pantomime and Broken.

  1. *Squee* goodie bags! You've already read/reviewed Shift, but I don't think I've seen you reading the others. The Assassin's Curse - no advance reading copy? :( - has a really pretty cover.

  2. I've read Katya's World and it is AWESOME! My friend went to the launch and asked Jonathan L Howard to sign a postcard for me! I did a lot of manic smiling.

    It looks like you had a good time. I love the bags!
