Eve emerged triumphant in June, after many pandemic and Brexit related delays (proving that the book will remain topical for some time.) It’s been worth the wait, it’s a beautiful book, solid, heavy, gorgeous print job, and hopefully you will all enjoy it. I don’t want to say too much about the story, except that it is a piece of political writing about the changing climate in the UK and I’ve used a combination of handmade and digital drawing to produce it. Eve is our stroppy, independent hero but the title of the novel also refers to our general proximity to disaster.
If you want to get a copy of Eve, you could buy from Leeds indie shop OK Comics, who have kindly made a unique signed book plate for the release. They do a great mail order service. Or you can go to any big book store and a few small ones. Try Foyles of London, Bristol and Birmingham or Waterstones, who have been supportive of my work in the past. You can also buy a signed and drawn in copy directly from me, in my Etsy shop.
