Post IV: A New Hope
If any man was ever more excited about a brown paper package delivered by Royal Mail, it would only be because he planned to have sex with the contents.
I arrived home late last night, after a great “Monday Club” dinner at McKirdy’s Steakhouse with some old friends, to find a slim 9” by 6” parcel waiting for me. Like all such parcels it had been wrapped to ensure it would stay in pristine condition for the archaeologists of future generations to open using their advanced technology.
One minute and some damage to my dental work later I had the joy of holding the first ever paper copy of my first ever novel in my hands. Only those of you who are parents of especially beautiful children will know what this feels like.
So the news is this: print copies of Singular are now on Amazon.com (and all good retailers everywhere). This means you can get free delivery on the book if you buy another $15 of stuff – for example, another two copies. (I’m just saying you could).
I’m working on broader UK distribution channels, but until that’s set up the book will still be available from Lulu. Follow me (@dfpiii) on twitter to be kept up to date.

Postman Pat just handed me my copy half an hour ago.
