I’m delighted to introduce you to the cover of First Time Solo. I can’t begin to explain how much I love this. The genius designers at Freight Books have outdone themselves with this bittersweet image which takes its inspiration from 40s modernist posters. I can’t stop looking at it and thinking ‘oh my god, it’s real, isn’t it.’ Next step: holding it in my hand. I think my brain might explode.

Hi Iain- I saw your post on the Scottish Writers’ Centre FB page. The book looks fantastic- can’t wait to read it. I too have my first novel coming out soon: Blast Radius, being published by Sandstone Press. It is also about the victims of war- namely the present war in Afghanistan. I share your excitement and not-quite-believing-it giddiness. I’ll hopefully get along to your evening at Looking Glass Books in Edinburgh– it is my favourite bookshop. Best of luck!
Hi Rebecca, thanks for your kind words. Good luck with your book, I’ll have to read it when it comes out. I hope you can make it to Looking Glass Books. If so, say hi.
