Dodge & Burn and the Dodo...

Posted by Sam Mills (Creator)
Hello everyone,

Just a quick update on happenings at Dodo Ink HQ: We are putting the finishing touches on our debut title, Dodge and Burn by Seraphina Madsen, soon to go to print. We hope you’re as excited by the cover as we are! It was designed by Dan Stiles...

Eugenie Lund, a heiress on the run from a fairy-tale nightmare past controlled by Dr. Vargas, makes her way through a real world that is no less fantastic than the one she has previously known. Seraphina Madsen’s Dodge and Burn is a multi-continent road trip which becomes a psychedelic journey to piece together the self, or end up succumbing to its hypnotising, kaleidoscopic fragments. 

 We’re excited to have plenty of ecstatic advance praise for this title: 

 ‘A graceful, droll and absorbing book. Madsen’s nimble prose winds around your mind and heart, leaving you breathless.' Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals

 "Seraphina's writing is vital, exciting and above all, original. Dodge & Burn marks the arrival of a brave new voice." Lee Rourke, author and critic. 

 “Madsen writes like a fallen angel from another world; intoxicating, strange, super-charged with occult knowledge and a mystical sensibility. Dodge & Burn is an unforgettable tour de force of avant-garde writing. You’ve never read anything quite like it.” James Miller, academic and author of Lost Boys. 

 Dodge & Burn will be out on 21st July and we look forward to sending you copies... 

In other news, Alice Furse and Tomoé Hill have joined the team as Publicist and Associate Editor respectively, so a big welcome to them. As always, we are all working at Dodo unpaid, so that every penny of our kickstarter goes straight into our books. 

Our bookmarks are just back from the printing press: 

We will be sending out bookmarks to our £5 reward backers in the next few days. Please note for our US backers in this category, it may take a bit longer for them to reach you, but rest assured we are on top of it. If you have not already responded to our survey requesting address details, please do so, otherwise we can’t get your lovely bookmark out! 

Once again, thanks to you all for your generous support—we couldn’t have done it without you! Love, Sam, Alex, Thom & The Dodo xxx
