So the ARCs (Advanced Reading Copies) and DRCs (Digital Reading Copies) of Of Bone And Thunder (OBAT for those into acronyms are out there and some early reviews are starting to pop up. Interview requests are also coming in. My web designers, Amy and Ethan, of BeBetterStudios are getting my website revamp ready to launch (which reminds me I need to get back to them on some tweaks!)
The final files of the book went to the printer last month. The final cover file won’t go until next week. The book itself will be printed next week as well. It will then be released from the warehouse the fourth week of September and start making its way to wholesalers and retail outlets all over North America. While all this is going on, my agent, Don Maass, will be shopping the book in Hollywood and the subrights team at S&S will be shopping it at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany in October. That’s where they look to license the book for translation.
Meanwhile, Todd Haberkorn is putting his vocal cords to the test as he narrates the 500 pages of OBAT. The audio will be available October 14, same as the hard cover and ebook.
And I will be doing a signing event at New York Comic Con which just happens to be the weekend before OBAT goes on sale. If you’re going to be at the Con please drop by the S&S/Gallery Books booth and say hi.
Now I just need to figure out what my next novel will be!
