A whirlwind as of late...

The past few weeks have been busy to a ridiculous level...I had a very adventurous week to kick off November, visiting Sherlock's in Lebanon, TN, Border Bookstore in Columbus, OH (the Kenny Road location), and the Kentucky Book Fair. Glad to say that all of the events were very enjoyable, though I was admittedly a bit tired at the end of the week.

I am happy that the new book is now available...currently in softcover and shortly in hardcover (and we just got in the limited edition hardcover for those that pre-ordered it). The effort has been extensive to get this one out there, in the multiple versions with all the extras like the art cards, poster, etc. As always, I don't mind going as far as I can for my readers, in terms of doing everything I can to have some nice elements involved with the release and getting out the best possible verson that I can.

Things are going to be very busy in the next few weeks as we work to get the word out about the new book. There will be two appearances in December...one is a big homecoming signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington KY on December 10th. It will feature an exclusive collectible for all those who attend, and a friend of mine is shooting footage for a short documentary about the night. (even will be from 7-9pm)

Beyond that is an Imagicopter event at Sherlock's on December 19th. It will be great to catch up with David Blalock and the gang, as this will be my first Imagicopter event. It will also be good to go back to Sherlock's, which is a fantastic bookstore.

Onward and upward, as they say! Lots of work ahead, but I'm excited about it all,
