Haven’t poked around over here for a bit as I’m still recovering from the last few days of L.A. Festival of Books (where I signed a few copies of CITY OF THE LOST, including someone’s oddly cellophane-bagged copy that was clearly headed for eBay – good luck young entrepreneur, hope it makes you a few bucks), house guest (The lovely and wonderful Fraulein Sabrina Ogden was in town and
set fire to crashed on our couch bringing along with her the entire niceness quotient of Salt Lake City) and general book related madness.
I had the opportunity to hang out with Herr Chuck Wendig while he was in L.A.
shooting scheisse porn for some coked out German producer named Himmler signing his new novel BLACKBIRDS at the Festival of Books and at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach. Many Bothans died books were defiled.
And amidst all this madness there is news! YES, NEWS!!!1!
First off, DINOCALYPSE blew past everyone’s expectations on Sunday and closed at a whopping $42,769.00 and 1,516 backers.
So if you backed it for at least ten bucks you can go over there and get your digital copy of DINOCALYPSE NOW, well, now. Otherwise, you’re shit outta luck until the presses start rolling.
No dates yet on when I will be writing KHAN OF MARS (only a working title, though I’m rather fond of it), but it will be a bit. There are five other novels in the series before I come on board and we’re still working out dates.
And to those who backed the project, and to those who couldn’t but wanted to (believe me, I get it) I would like to say thank you. Thank you for the enthusiasm and excitement you brought to it, for the hopes and expectations that you have for it. I know most of you didn’t chip in because you saw my name, but the fact that at least 1500 of you are going to be reading a book penned by me is very humbling. I hope that when you get it into your hot, little hands you are not disappointed. I very much want to make this book worthy of your time and attention.
Secondly, DON’T READ THIS BOOK, the anthology set in the nightmare world of Don’t Rest Your Head is now available and includes my story DON’T LOSE YOUR PATIENTS (the opening line of which is right up there at the top – see, that’s me being CLEVER).
Thirteen stories of hallucinogenic horror and nightmare for your reading pleasure by Harry Connolly, Rich Dansky, Matt Forbeck, Laura Anne Gilman, Will Hindmarch, Mur Lafferty, Robin D. Laws, Ryan Macklin, C. E. Murphy, Josh Roby, Greg Stolze, Monica Valentinelli, and me.
Some damn fine stories in there, folks. You don’t want to miss this one.
