Did your book make it? And some housekeeping and a brag!
Yesterday, we sent the last 15 signed copies out the door. Most of you should have gotten your books by now. If you didn't, then let me know and I'll track it down for you. (If you got a signed book, and/or are outside the US, you might need to wait another week or two—but feel free to ask anyway). If your book arrived looking like it was buried in a dirty NYC snowdrift for a week, likewise, let us know (bonus: send us pics for social media!) and we'll make it right.
And....that wraps up this project. We'll post updates only occasionally from now on—usually when we have a Kickstarter project or call for submissions for a similar book coming out that we think you'll like.
I'll leave you with a little housekeeping and a brag. First, the housekeeping:
The permanent home for The Velocipede Races is and will forever be here.
If you'd like to keep up with what Microcosm / Elly Blue Publishing are up to, you can subscribe to our monthly-ish newsletter.
Feel free to post your own reviews of TVR on the Microcosm site, on Goodreads, and (when it comes out in April) on the big A.
And if you're inspired to excitedly post photos of the book along with your cup of tea / champagne / malt whisk on social media, feel free to tag us (@microcosmmm on twitter, @microcosm_pub on instagram) and Emily (@emilyjunestreet on twitter, @emilyjunest on instagram) and/or use the hashtag #veloraces
And next, the brag: Library Journal, a major industry publication, just gave The Velocipede Races a starred review! You can read the whole thing on the book's home page on our site. We're very proud and excited that this praise will help get the book in front of many avid library book readers.
Thank you all so much for making this happen. We are excited to bring you more feminist bicycle science fiction stories (a solarpunk graphic novel is in the early stages of planning!) and as always we love to hear from you.
