How Not to Poach a Unicorn

This is, by far, one of the finest novels I have ever read. It is witty, well paced, clever and captivating. Also… I may have written it. Yes, this is shameless self promotion, but I really do think it’s worth a read.

My first published novel, How Not to Poach a Unicorn, is now available in eBook format on Kindle and Kobo. It’s a fun fantastical adventure and it’s brilliant. Here’s the summary:

An unlikely band, brought together through a daring escape from a wizard’s dungeon, is forced on a continent spanning race to save two kingdoms from mutual annihilation. Their every step is hounded by mages, thieves and monsters. Every turn reveals a new enemy and every answered question spawns several more.

Curious but hesitant? How about this? The first three commenters that ask nicely can have a copy. Just ask and I will send it to you via Kindle or Kobo, your choice.


Ryan is a professional nerd, teaching engineering in the frozen north. Somewhat less professionally, he is a costumer, author, blacksmith, juggler, gamer, serial enthusiast, and supporter of the Oxford comma. He can be found on twitter and instagram @studentofwhim.

  1. It sounds delightful! I’d love a copy but have neither kindle nor kobo, do they have readers that let you read it on a pc or iPhone?

  2. @Ashlyn- The Kobo version is a DRM-free ePub file, so any PC or smartphone app that can read that (which is most of them) should be able to handle it.

  3. Well that was fast.
    Congratulations Carrie, Peranting, MarlowePl, I will be in contact to make sure it gets sent to the right place.

    Ashlyn, sorry but you were minutes behind peranting. To anwer your question, both Kindle and Kobo have iPhone and PC apps where you can download and read ebooks.

    Clearly mine is the first anyone should get, but they have huge libraries including many free titles. Read ebooks, they save trees and increase global cleverness.

  4. Well damn. That’s what I get for spending the day debating a Twitter troll–I miss out on a free slice of awesome pie. However, I do not mind in the slightest supporting the author by purchasing his work.

  5. @Devitek That’s how I feel, except about sleep and not Twitter trolls.

    I may also have to purchase this work of fiction. 😀 Books!

  6. This ‘eBook’ invention the kids keep talking about does absolutely nothing to assuage my dead tree addiction.

    You wrote a book! That’s awesome! Will be checking this out.

  7. Thanks for the support, folks.

    @quarksparrow, I understand the fondness for triturated arboreal cuttings. There may be such a version in the future, but I’m sticking to eBook for now.
