Fantastic Planet & Creaking Shelves

Two bits of bookstore news, one in Australia and one in Scotland. (You had the US news yesterday - trying to share things around a bit!)

First, I just saw the new arrivals post on the Fantastic Planet blog, and they've now got copies of Hal Spacejock No Free Lunch (book 4 in the series)

A couple of weeks ago I agreed to go in and sign stock for them, so it looks like it's time for me to follow up on the promise.

(Fantastic Planet is in the city of Perth, Western Australia. Each of the three previous Hal Spacejock books has been a top 10 bestseller at one stage or another, so you can't fault their excellent sales team!)

In other bookstore news, The Creaking Shelves Bookshop (love that name!) in Wigtown (Scotland's National Book Town) has been in touch about stocking the Hal Spacejock series. They're talking to my publisher now, and fingers crossed they can come up with something between them because having an outlet or two in the UK would be fantastic.

One final note: would you believe the "Creaking Shelves" shop owner won a signed copy of Hal in a draw a year or so back, before she even owned a bookstore?

Simon Haynes is the author of the Hal Spacejock and Hal Junior series (Amazon / Smashwords / other formats)
