It’s come around unbelievably fast (well, it has for me anyway) but the first big day for the second Split Worlds novel is finally here: Any Other Name is now available as an e-book and as a paperback in the US and Canada. UK lovelies need to wait until June 6th for the paperback I’m afraid. On this page you’ll find all the details on where you can buy the e, p and audio versions of the book. Oh, and the first two chapters are up on Tor.com.
As you might already know, I’ve started the three wishes community to celebrate the launch but then I had an idea for something a bit more frivolous which I just had to do.
Secret objects from Any Other Name
I’ve hidden descriptions of twelve objects from Any Other Name on the Split Worlds website, all of which play important roles in the novel. You can read about them without spoiling the book, by the way.
Over the next ten days – starting today and finishing on the date of the UK paperback release – I’ll be tweeting links to blog posts elsewhere online which will contain the links you need to find all twelve objects and I’ll be using the #splitworlds hashtag. I’ll link to them on Facebook too. On the 6th of June I’ll announce the next part of the fun – so it might be a good idea to bookmark those hidden object pages when you find them…
The first one to go up (thanks to Paul!) can be found here.
P.S. As a bit of karmic rebalancing after all that horn tooting up there, may I also offer congratulations and shout-outs to Chuck Wendig for the launch of The Blue Blazes and Susan Jane Bigelow for the release of The Daughter Star – we all share a book birthday!
P.P.S. Also, happy birthday to my deeply wonderful husband Peter. Today is truly a nexus point in the space-time continuum.
P.P.S. Blimey – just discovered that the brilliant Mur Lafferty’s book is out today too! What is going on?! Hers is called “The Shambling Guide to New York City”
