Fallen is out in the US but not yet out in the UK, meaning that this two-week period is an odd sort of limbo where all of my US readers have been able to read the book but my UK readers haven’t. So here are various bits and pieces in the meantime.
Fallen’s had time to start getting reviews now, and they’re extremely positive on average. Looking at the receptions of my past books, I’ve started recently to work out some theories about what my readers tend to prefer, and so far, Fallen’s reaction seems to be confirming them. Here’s a selection of some of the earliest reviews: Geeks of Doom, I Smell Sheep, and PrimmLife. (Note: don’t read these if you haven’t yet read the book!)
I occasionally get people asking if this site is going to have any online forums or similar. The answer’s no (I do all the website admin myself, and managing a forum is way too big a time sink) but if you’re looking for an online discussion community, probably the best one is the Alex Verus sub on Reddit. It’s still small, but it’s growing.
And on the topic of Reddit, my AMA is coming up one week after the UK release date, on October 17th. If you want to ask me any questions about Fallen or anything else, come along and say hi!
