ECHO CITY day arrives

July 5th, 2011 • Posted in Book News |

Today is a very big day for me.  After being a published writer for many years, and seeing books published by mainstream publishers in the USA (about twenty novels, and counting), my novel ECHO CITY has hit the shelves in the UK.  It’s not the first book of mine to do so — a couple of years ago, Allison & Busby published three of my books.  But it’s the first book from a major publisher, and I feel at last that I’m properly published in my own country.

And that’s cause to celebrate.

You can go here to the Orbit website to read an exclusive extract, and also to check out the great reviews that are already coming in for the novel.  My mate, fantasy writer Steven Erikson, said:

Brilliantly conceived and exquisitely well written by one of the genre’s most original and inventive writers.  Tim Lebbon is one of the few fantasy authors whose new works I eagerly anticipate.

Nice, eh?  And check that gorgeous cover…

I hope you’ll pick up and enjoy ECHO CITY.  If you do, please let me know what you think.  And please spread the word. This is only the beginning.

    Nothing beats having success on your home turf. Congratulations. Sure, people can say they’re big in Japan, but it has more meaning when you can see your stuff in your local bookstore.

    Just finished this after finally getting to the top of my reading pile. Thoroughly enjoyed it and ordered some of you earlier books on import.
    Great cover too!!
