Bookshops who stock our titles…

Of course we have no idea who stocks our books most of the time, because they order through wholesalers but, occasionally, we (by which I mostly mean Jacqueline Downs, a woman with a mission) spot a book on the shelves and take a picture. Now this is something anyone can join in with. So if you see an Arachne book in a shop (or even better a whole pile of them) you could take a picture and send it to us!

Here’s some photos to get you started.

We also know the books are (or have been, and therefore would undoubtedly order for you) stocked at Riverside (Hays Galleria), Foyles St Pancras, Belgravia books, Daunt Books Hampstead and Chelsea, Owl Bookshop, various Waterstones and Blackwells (including Heffers). Mr B’s Emporium in Bath,  , Sevenoaks bookshop and Little Apple Bookshop in York Online you can get our books anywhere but we know we’ve sold through The Book Depository and Books Etc.  You can of course also order direct from Arachne and did we mention the eBooks are now available?

If you are a book shop who stock our books, please let us know and we can add you to our list – even better send us a photo of our books on your shelves!

London Lies Launch photos and video

A very successful launch for London Lies at the London Review Bookshop.  Stock of books sold out! No doubt they will be ordering more for their regular customers who couldn’t make it.

We’ll be posting more pictures and video soon.

Other events to celebrate the publication of London Lies in September: Wednesday 12th, Thursday 20th and Thursday 27th.

London Lies available for pre-order

When my very first story in an anthology was published (In and Out of Time a long, long, time ago) it was a strange experience, it didn’t seem real until I had put it on the bookshelf, nestling between Sylvia Plath’s Bell Jar and Arthur Ransome’s Coot Club.  These days my books sit next to my mum’s – Ghillian Potts rather than Arthur Ransome – Plath is still there, and so is Ransome, just not touching covers anymore.

I’ve just added my advance copy of London Lies. So it’s real now, for me, anyway.

I’ve been chatting to someone at one of the large online retailers, and I suddenly realised that they, and a large number of their competitors, already have London Lies on site available for pre-order.  So it works, then! Very exciting, it makes it all seem much more real for everyone else, not just that little version of reality on my bookshelf.  And I got my first order from a wholesaler yesterday!  This means you can order the book anywhere, and they will be able to get it for you – any bookshop, any on-line book retailer – even from us (short delay while I set up the systems, but soon!)

Publication date is 8th September – order a copy now, from your prefered retailer, and be one of the first people in the world to hold a copy in your hand, or indeed put it on the bookshelf next to Ms Plath or Mr Ransome!
