#AtoZChallenge Theme Reveal 2022: The Tale of the Hostage Prince

#AtoZChallenge 2022 Theme Reveal

Technically this post was supposed to go up yesterday. Practically, I only started writing it today. Well, it's still Monday somewhere in the world, I think?? But delay aside, I decided to kill two birds* with one stone with this year's A to Z Challenge.

You see, instead of organising a cover reveal and book launch tour, which takes massive coordination skills and time, I decided to use the A to Z Challenge as launch month for 

The Tale of the Hostage Prince

...which means content around the world of the Absolution series, teasers for the new book, writing insights, and basically a bunch of Yosua-related content!

The Tale of the Hostage Prince - 14 April 2022 - Teaspoon Publishing

The Tale of the Hostage Prince launches on April 14, because that's when L for Launch is. 

I'll be updating the index below as and when I start filling them up! :)

*No birds were really killed, promise.
