This year we’re publishing the first 3 books in Emma Newman’s Split Worlds series, beginning with Between Two Thorns (next week in the US and the following week in the UK). The author describes the book as “Downton Abbey, but with mad sorcerers and evil faeries”.
Anyone who pre-orders a copy of the paperback or eBook of Between Two Thorns will be entered into a draw, the winner of which will have a character named after them in Book 3 – All Is Fair – to be published in October.
If you’re outside the UK
You can pre-order the book online from your favourite bookstore before Tuesday 26th February. Forward a copy of your pre-order confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you pre-order from the Robot Trading Company you don’t need to forward your confirmation email, as we’ll already have your details.
If you’re in the UK
You can pre-order the book online from your favourite bookstore before Thursday 8th March. Forward a copy of your pre-order confirmation email to email@example.com. If you pre-order from the Robot Trading Company you don’t need to forward your confirmation email, as we’ll already have your details. Kindle owners in the UK won’t be able to pre-order the ebook, so we’ll extend the deadline until midnight on Thursday 8th March (publication date) for you.

Forbidden Planet Launch – Extra Gift
For those of you who are able to attend the launch of the book at Forbidden Planet Bristol, or Forbidden Planet London (see below for details), you’ll get a draw entry, and there also is an extra-special gift for you.
Everyone who attends the launch will be given an envelope containing a signed, numbered, limited edition short story card. This card contains a new short story by Emma – Debt – set in the Split Worlds. It’s a deliciously wicked little tale, and you won’t be able to read this story anywhere else in print, or online. That’s right – the only place to get this story is at one of the two launches. This is sure to become a collectors’ item!
Additionally, one lucky attendee at each launch will find a Golden Ticket* in their envelope, winning them a copy of Book 2 – Any Other Name – weeks before it is published in June.
If you are intending to come to one of the launches, it would be very useful if you could indicate that on the relevant Facebook page, or in the comments, below.
