I learned just today that Whiskey Creek Press will release Storm Chaser June 1 -- that's Wednesday! I have some previous commitments tonight and tomorrow, but I'll do a longer post with more information about pricing, ordering, and availability Tuesday night.

 

Wow, it's been a long time coming ...

To coin a phrase: I know, right?

I am so proud of you and happy for you, Mark! Will Barnes & Noble carry it? If I mail it to you (after I read it and love it!) will you send it back to me, autographed? Pretty please??? (In a self-addressed prepaid mailer, of course!)

As far as I know, Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble online will carry it, but the hard copy won't be in the major book stores (as far as I know). However, a little later I'll be posting that I'll have some copies myself, and if you want to buy directly from me I can send you an autographed copy. My plan at the moment is that I'll charge for postage, but handle the mailer costs myself. I've had a good experience so far with Whiskey Creek Press, but they're a small press and don't have the distribution budget of the big boys.

I would love to buy from you! But does it look better to your publisher if I buy from them? I want you to take off, sales-wise. Perhaps your next book will be published by the big boys!

Actually, it probably does look better to the publisher if it's bought from them or one of the bookseller sites, rather than directly from me. I haven't been telling people that because I don't want people who want autographed copies to have to go to a lot of trouble in mailing, but from what I've heard it's true.

I can only hope to get a big boy publishing contract! There's a lot of competition out there.

Hurray! That's so cool. (And I know you didn't think it very likely, but if you do end up doing any Barnes & Noble local author appearances, let us know!)

I'm hoping to do some author appearances here and there, but I doubt if Barnes & Noble is likely! We'll see, though ...

Re: That's today
Yes, but it's not listed as available on their website yet! I'll give it until I wake up this evening before I start panicking -- I just hope there isn't some last minute delay that knocks it back to their June 15 release date. The waiting is killing me!

Lol. I bet. It's like waiting for your baby to be born.

Re: That's today
Exactly! And I've been pregnant with Storm Chaser for about ten years.

Re: That's today
That's right! I don't understand how those people who labor away at a book for fifteen years before they even start trying to sell it stay sane ...

So you're gonna lose that baby bump when it gets put up? ;D
