I refuse to pre order i am holding out for a copy at launch where I will part with cold hard cash or more likely book tokens to get a copy signed. Assuming there is a signing south of Newcastle?
I would very much enjoy that,  but only the big name writers tend to get actual signing tours (and can afford the time off to do them far from home). Otherwise it's the unknown debut author sitting at a table reading a book waiting for somebody...anybody...to buy one. But things can change all the time where publishing is concerned.

I'll definitely be at Eastercon/Follycon in Harrogate over Easter but that's before the book is out, and likely Fantasycon at Chester in October. I *may* be in Derby in July for Edgelit as well but that is very dependant on finances.

Preorders help an author more than you think!

You could always steal my marketing plan to dress as a wizard carrying books in a leather knapsack at cons. My other plan to travel the UK in a gypsy wagon might be overly expensive however

Waterstones do tend to promote debut authors, however tickets tend to be free to those events so presumably its down to the authors or publishers to fund the expense of getting there and doing their thing.

I answered cunning questions from Hippogriff's Aerie for my first ever interview as an author.
Featuring: stop-motion skeletons, video nasties of the 80s, mysterious statues and the beauty of swords. Oh, and The Traitor God, better mention that too!
