Déjà Vu: Special Edition

This will be a short post because I’m knackered. I just wanted to write that, fol­low­ing an explo­sion of swear­ing, spittle and pinch­ing my cheeks with rage, there is now — finally — a spe­cial edi­tion of my first book Déjà Vu avail­able to buy via the good folks at Lulu.com. It’s taken a long time. I know; this is pub­lish­ing. The cov­er is some­what Spartan. I know; I knocked it up in PowerPoint.

But this edi­tion con­tains an exclus­ive illus­tra­tion by Pia Guerra and has been lov­ingly reworked in a Bladerunner/Ridley Scott kinda way (actu­ally, the meta­phor isn’t so far from the truth.)

So there is a long and involved story behind this edi­tion. I’m not going to tell it right now. I just want to write this: If you’d like a copy in time for Christmas, it’s pos­sible that it might arrive if you bought it now. And this: The roy­alty — which is one pound for each copy — will go to a loc­al home­less char­ity in Canterbury that needs the cash.

Over the years, there haven’t been hun­dreds of people ask­ing me where they can get a copy of Déjà Vu, but there have been a few. I hope this edi­tion fills a gap. It’s cheap; it’s an improve­ment on the ori­gin­al in lots of ways, and con­tains that excel­lent Pia Guerra illus­tra­tion. What are ye wait­ing for, m’hearties?

I will now go and put a cold beer bottle against my fore­head.

I may even drink it.

  1. Thanks, John! This spe­cial edi­tion is a bit of a stop gap just to keep the book in print. My agent will be (and is) tak­ing my oth­er books around tra­di­tion­al pub­lish­ers, so we’ll see how that goes…Thanks again for your com­ment.
