I'll update this post with links as they go up. Next week should hopefully see some advance reviews; I'll link to them as well.
There may be some sort of belated event in meatspace in the New Year, or to boost the paperback coming out in March, but until then, there's an online launch party on Facebook on the release date. This will include discounts on the hardback and ebook, an ebook giveaway, and a reading from Hell's Ditch (via the wonders of YouTube) for anyone who fancies it. (If you're on my Facebook friends list and haven't been invited, sorry! I started inviting everyone I knew and then found out too late there's a limit to how many invites I can send. So if you want to take part, click the link and invite yourself!)
