Well, I originally said they would be printed and ready by January 31st. I’ve been talking to the folks who will print the book (who are the same folks that printed the book edition of Validation), and I have pretty much everything together.
However, I’m fixing some formatting errors before I send the book off to print. I want this book to look its best, darnit!
But that means the book won’t be available on January 31st.
The latest the book will hit the market is February 13th (and yes, that IS a Friday the 13th. No, I’m not superstitious about it).
You can still pre-order a copy, so I can reserve a book JUST FOR YOU from the printer (because I like you, reader, and you are awesome). It’s $10, and that price includes shipping.
Well, a lot of the stories I’m writing recently (especially their’s in particular) take place in places I haven’t visited in a long while. Like Chicago. And Pittsburgh. And there are even some that may take place in New Mexico or Tennesee.
So I’m wondering…should I take some time away from conventions…so I can go on research trips?
Another friend of mine, Suzy, did a research trip in lieu of conventions, and that has inspired me to consider doing the same thing.
I have quite the travel bug, and I would love to do more of it so I can see new sights, meet new people, write about new things, and share more of my experiences.
Either way, whether I do more conventions or more research trips, I intend to write about them here on this blog.
Have any suggestions for places to go? Travel tips? just have something you gotta’ say? I would love to read about it in comments.
Thank you for reading and I will see you on Monday.
