    Hi Melissa,
    Thank you for your interest :)
    Once the project reaches the funding target and I am able to print the book, I will publish the names of the bookstores in Barcelona where the book will be available on the blog: http://thekingandthetree.blogspot.com.es/

    If the target is reached (fingers crossed!!)
    the book should be available at the end of March.
    With a smile, Kate
