A box full of delightful copies of #TheStasiGame has arrived from @ZaffreBooks. Out in e-book now, and as a paperback in the UK on New Year’s Eve. Probably my favourite cover thanks to @domforbes’ design incorporating the 1980’s #hcafc kit colours. And #hull does feature in it.

So #TheStasiGame #BlogTour continues with this lovely review from @Littlemissbook6. Many thanks indeed!

«Una #novela interesante y entretenida, con una intriga que se mantiene hasta el final y que deja con ganas de más». Lee ya la reseña sobre #NaciónStasi, de @djy_writer, que nos deja @anikalibros. #LibrosRecomendados #thriller https://twitter.com/anikalibros/status/1333008481104883712

I finished my current treebook read and audio listen at the weekend so I have new reads and listens! Now reading The Stasi Game by @djy_writer (love this series and this, the last *sobs*, is fab). Now listening to Pines by @blakecrouch1 - it is fantastic!

Wow! Just watched the video review, Rosy. How kind of you. Delighted you enjoyed it! #TheStasiGame #BlogTour @ZaffreBooks. And good to see #TallOaks by @WhittyAuthor on your bookshelf. What a great book.

Thanks, Kathy. The problem is rights issues. Everything is available in the UK, but not everything is available in the US or Canada. They may be eventually, but in the meantime imports of paperbacks may be the only way.
