The paperback


I'm very excited to finally be able to share this with you - it's the jacket for the paperback edition of Sticky!

As you can see, it is rather different from the hardback! Bloomsbury's marketing teams in the US and the UK really wanted the gecko to star on this edition, and while I was a bit hesitant at first, I must say I am thrilled with the outcome. So much so that I will be getting a necklace made to mark the occasion.*

Release dates for the paperback are still a wee while away

  • UK/Eur: Feb 23rd
  • US/Can: April 25th
  • Aus/NZ: May 30th

If you're keen to get your hands on a copy when its released, please consider pre-ordering it, e.g. direct from Bloomsbury, via, in store at your favourite bookshop, or anywhere books are sold.

Pre-orders are hugely helpful for authors. So if you decide to do that, and would like a signed / personalised bookplate sticker to put into the copy when it arrives, please let me know - click on the Contact tab to send me a message (or drop me an email). Once I have all your details, I'll post a sticker to you.

And don't worry, the hardback, e-book, and audiobook editions will remain available, if you prefer any of those formats. If buying is not an option for you, please consider borrowing it from your local library. I spent every weekend of my childhood at the library. The thought that I now have two book-babies on library shelves fills me with joy.

*For those of you who don't know, I also had a custom necklace made for Science and the City. Weird / fun / surprising necklaces are kinda my thing)
