The Actuality: blog tour round-up

A huge thank you to all the wonderful bloggers who took part in our online tour celebrating the paperback publication of The Actuality by Paul Braddon. We knew the reviewers would love the book, but we couldn't be sure they'd love it quite this much!

The paperback is now available from all good bookshops, as well as online. If you'd prefer to pick up a copy of the (gorgeous!) hardback we currently have an offer running on our online shop, where you can buy a copy for only £7.99.

'I was entirely immersed into the story, totally invested at all times and completely hypnotised by the characters, especially Evie.'
