"Such a page turner."
These are a few of the verdicts that I have received in emails from British readers of my book, The Most Remarkable Woman in England: Poison, Celebrity and the Trials of Beatrice Pace.
So, I'm pleased to announce that, just over a month after its UK release, the book is now available in the US/Canada and in continental Europe.
In the UK, details and ordering information for the reasonably priced paperback edition are available direct from Manchester University Press. It is also available--at various discounts--from online retailers such as Amazon.co.uk, Blackwells and Waterstones, as well, of course, via ordering through your local bookshop.
In the US, the book is being distributed by Macmillan and is available directly from them. Or, of course, from Amazon, other on-line retailers or, again, via ordering through your local bookshop. For the moment, it may be that US orders take a bit longer than would be ideal. Keep in mind that the book is from a university press based in the UK.
But the best signal for them to stock up is to get your orders in.
If you're looking for more immediate gratification, there is already a fair amount of information on the case on this blog, and you may also wish to 'like' The Most Remarkable Woman in England at its Facebook page: if so, please encourage your friends to do the same!
I will be posting updates here and at the Facebook page of any reviews or commentaries on the book and of any future book-related events and developments.
And if you do enjoy the book (which I hope very much), I encourage you to say
so via online reviews, comments in social media (Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, etc.),
blogs you may contribute to, and, of course, in that trusty old means of
communication: conversation. As a book from a university press,
word-of-mouth advertising (amplified electronically) is going to make
all the difference!
