A Song For My Brother – New News About An Old Release!

Hey, guys! I recently realised that due to life and stuff happening, I never made any sort of ‘official’ release post for A Song for My Brother. I mean, I briefly and emotionally blogged about it when we got our hands on the first printing, but I didn’t really announce anything since. So I figured that now’s as good a time as any, especially since we just got our first independent review this week.

Drum roll…

Dearest audience, Maria Stanislav and Emmi Bat are proud to present their first full-length collaboration:


A Song for My Brother is a 40-page fantasy graphic novelette, and, as the title suggests, it centers around two siblings, L’iume (featured on the cover) and her brother N’iel. It is a story of loss, hope, but, above all, love.

Needless to say, this book, being the first project of this scale that Emmi and I pulled off together, is very dear to us. So you can imagine how excited we were to find it was included in an episode of Pixels and Pages, alongside such titles as HIT 1957, Jem & The Holograms, Past Aways, and the classic graphic novel Maus. Pixels and Pages is a video blog run by Lucy Myatt, owner of Level UP!, an independent comic book store in Liverpool – and you’ll be missing out if you don’t check it out:
(Song appears about nine minutes in.)

Thank you very much, Lucy, for your wonderful review!
As for you, dear readers, you can grab a copy of A Song for My Brother at Level UP! in Liverpool, and if you’re located elsewhere, you can get it on Etsy with FREE SHIPPING. Alternatively, if you just can’t wait to read the story, it’s also available digitally, as a DRM-free PDF, yours to keep forever and ever and enjoy on any device of your choice – for just two pounds! Yes, you read it correctly – you can have 40 pages of quality story for less than the price of a decent cup of coffee. If that’s not a bargain, well, just go ahead and revoke my Business Administration degree.

And, just in case you’re still hesitating, here’s a free sampler of the first chapter of Song, for your enjoyment (click on each page to make it bigger):

Wait, what river? What happened? Find out!
