Kaaron Warren and Angry Robot, They've done it again

The folks at Angry Robot are always promising to push the boundaries,
and now there is yet again proof that they are doing it.

Here's the latest development from their little world of insanity.

When Kaaron Warren told us she wanted to re-write her next book Walking the Tree as a 20,000 word novella from the point of view of one of the book’s minor characters, we thought she was mad! But we’ve always encouraged creative madness.
Kaaron says:

“As I was writing Walking the Tree, with its strong adult and child
characters, it struck me that it would be a wonderful thing if my son and
I could be reading the same book but in appropriate versions, so I wrote
Morace’s Story, the child’s point of view version of Walking the Tree.
My idea is that every parent can share the reading of Walking the Tree with their child.
Sit there, together, reading the same book.”

Our only concern was how to fit an additional 20,000 words into an already-hefty book. The answer was so obvious we wondered why everyone else wasn’t already doing it!
The first two chapters of Morace’s Story are included at the back of Walking the Tree along with a secret DVD-style download link and password that allows you to read the entire novella online or on your eBook reader. And if you buy the eBook edition you get the whole thing as an added extra. Walking the Tree is published worldwide by Angry Robot.
