This is really exciting for us - it's the first time we've released a hardcover and it's going to be something special because it's going to be strictly limited to just 50 copies!
Naturally, it will be numbered and signed by the full creative team - that's writer Lawrence Rider, artist Rebecca Teall and editor Steve Tanner of course - and the cost of the hardcover will be just £15!
But, and isn't there always a but, due to the cost these limited editions are to produce we really need to be sure we can get at least 30 copies sold, so we're also pleased to let you now that we are taking pre-orders for the hardcovers now that can either be collected direct from us at the launch of Longship at the Birmingham ICE convention on 2nd August or posted to any worldwide address!
Also, as a special thank-you to anyone who pre-orders a Longship hardcover we'll also include another limited edition at no further cost - a copy of "The Orb" print, which is a wonderful, quirky story produced by Lawrence and Rebecca that is ideal for framing!
Here's the pre-order prices and ordering instructions:
Limited Hardcover collected at the launch convention - £15
Limited Hardcover posted to any UK address - £18
Limited Hardcover posted to any other address worldwide - £15 for the book, but please contact us so we can let you know how much the postage would be for you.
Payment must be via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org and please ensure you include the full delivery address.
Any pre-ordered hardcovers will be posted out early August.
Needless to say this is a perfect opportunity to get hold of a very special edition of Longship - and would make a pretty cool gift for someone, too!
