UPDATE: Thanks for all your support and pre-orders! The Grief Nurse is out now, with gorgeous foil, and silvery endpapers. We couldn't have done it without our readers! If you haven't got a copy yet, it's available from all good bookshops, as well as online.

Fans of historical fantasy and spectacular world-building, WE NEED YOU!

We know you’ll have seen the gorgeous cover for The Grief Nurse by Angie Spoto and hopefully you’re as excited for the release of this amazing debut as we are! We’re keen to make the book look as gorgeous as possible and that’s where you come in.

A lot has been written about the rising cost of printing recently. Every additional flourish has an attached cost. We would love to add extra foil and lovely coloured endpapers to make this book as special as Angie's writing.

If you’re excited for this book and want to help us make it the most beautiful object on your bookshelf, please pre-order from our online store by 25 Jan - the book will be out on April 13th, but we have to send it to print this week. We’re about 50 orders away from ensuring we can add these details, and with your help we can get there!

Pre-orders make a big difference to an independent publisher as it helps us determine how many to print, helps booksellers anticipate demand and helps us pour more into the details we love to share. You can read more about the importance of pre-ordering on our blog.

Need some convincing? Angie's debut has already had fantastic reviews from readers and authors:

‘Unforgettable.’ -Helen Marshall

‘Conceptually-explosive.’ -C J Cooke

‘Extraordinary.’ -Elizabeth Reeder
