EOC arrives fashionably early!

As was reported in the comments to yesterday's post, Eyes of Crow is shipping earlier than expected from Amazon.com. The product page still lists it as "Pre-Order" and says that the publication date is November 1. The product page lies. UPDATE: It's now listed as "In Stock"!

Though Amazon is great, I encourage you to order from Mysterious Galaxy, an independent bookseller that specializes in science fiction and fantasy. They're a fantastic group of people. One of the owners is author Jeff Mariotte. MaryElizabeth Hart listed EOC as one of her staff picks (click and scroll down).

So support the indies if you can, because they support us. If Amazon's gotten their copies, so have all the other bookstores, including the one down the street from you (unless the one down the street from you has a name like 'Repent Ye Sinners').

They might not have it on the shelves until next week (or the week after), but I bet if you ask, they'll be happy to dig one out of the box and take your money for it.

Oh, and pick up Stephen King's new book while you're there. I hear he needs the support.



EOC totally rocked Jeri. Truly I enjoyed it. I am so looking forward To VOC. Any idea on the release date for that? And yes, I admit I'm being greedy but oh well. LOL

Thanks, Kathy! :-)

VOC will be out October 2007, which really means mid-September. I'm excited about this, not only because it means sooner, but October is one of the best months of the year for this type of fiction to be released. Which tells me my publisher is excited about it.

Me, I'm just excited about handing it in on November 1. It's by far the hardest book I've ever written. Ultimately I hope that means it's the best, but right now it needs, uh, attention.

Better get back to it...

I think I will go to Repent Ye Sinners and ask them to special-order it for me, just to give them something to talk about for the next few days.

I was just wondering why would Stephen King need people's support? Would seem that he wouldn't need as much. He's Stephen King man! I mean this guy's told so many different and great stories.

It's not like he's James Patterson or something. I dn't think his fan base has turned on him as a whole. I know lots didn't like the last few of Gunslinger. I was just wondering.

I also know from reading a few other author's blog's that their was a drop either last year or year before in book sales.
