Today, my printed paperback copies of The Seventh arrived!
My publisher is based in North America and, while Australians can order the paperbacks online, there’s not yet any local Australian distribution agreement in place. This is why I have ordered a number of hard copies. Many friends have asked me for signed copies, so I can now pass them on, with some spare to offer to local bookstores and libraries.
I did all the normal things first time authors do when their paperback books arrive. I felt its weight in my hands, then actually weighed it on my kitchen scales (320g). I flicked through it to see all the pages and words and things. I took a selfie with it. I sniffed it. That’s all normal, right?
Then I decided to make it the star of a little modelling shoot. I think this is a great way to help my readers appreciate just how versatile my book really is. I’ve inserted the pictures here, with captions, as a helpful guide to different ways you can enjoy my brand new debut novel.
1. Shelf Placement

I hope you enjoyed my novel’s modelling snaps. Feel free to send any suggestions of your own and I will attempt to grant your wishes.
I’ll be in bed with my cat, sniffing my book.
