Yes, it’s nearly here. You can preorder Queenie’s Teapot right now and save.
Queenie has been a gleam in my eye since Ken and I first started bickering in the queue at Tesco about the merits of self-service checkouts. To save many more arguments, all the things we disagree about became sublimated into a book.
Beta readers liked Queenie and asked for a trilogy, so the non-fiction writer locker herself into a room and imagined some more.
Drumroll, maestro please…
Book one of the Queenie Chronicles, Queenie’s Teapot, will be launched on January 24th. You can preorder the kindle version now and preorders for paperbacks will be possible very soon.
Well, for starters, both the kindle and paperback editions are a dollar cheaper in the preorder phase, so if you got vouchers or tokens in your stocking, they’ll go a bit further. Do you need a second reason? Well, maybe. It helps me too because preorders all go live on the same day. Enough of them might just boost Queenie into Amazon’s popularity algorithms.
So, if you need to blow a whimsical raspberry at politics and politicians after the train crash that was 2016 on both sides of the Pond, you might as well treat yourself.
Here’s the blurb:
In a world where democracy has been declared no longer fit for purpose, a cohort of randomly selected British Republic citizens receive their call to serve in parliament. As the strangers gather to learn their tasks for the next three years, the Cabinet Support Team try to fit jobs to skills—but Queenie can’t do nuffin’. Naturally she becomes head of state. Together the new government muddles through, tackling unrest on the streets and a spot of global bioterrorism in addition to their own journeys of self-discovery.
