Wow--it has been awhile since I've been here, hasn't it? Look how dusty the place is. Disgraceful. And shocking.
Busy, busy, busy. No excuses for this level of neglect, but...still. I haven't been entirely idle in the gap between this blog and last. I did another round of edits with my incredibly talented editor on Passing Strange. I wrote my first ever Generation Dead short story (well, unless you count Tommy's entire blog), which will be published in an anthology before too long (more on that later), AND I also finished another novel with the working title of Shiny Happy People. I'll let you know up front that this book is 100% zombie-free and is not part of the Generation Dead series.
And you know what?
I really, really like it. I think you will, too.
And books! We've got some books coming out this year, too. Check these release dates out:
March 25 Generacion Dead The first book I've written that I can't read!
May 4 Kiss of Life paperback, which includes a ultra-exclusive sneak peak of Passing Strange!
June 1 Passing Strange U.S. edition, which includes the ultra-exclusive entire text of Passing Strange! Wow!
July 8 Passing Strange U.K. edition, which includes the entire text of the book with bonus alternate spellings! With a special variant cover! The image of which I will post if anyone wants to see it!
Whew, that's a lot going on. I also tried to get Disney to do a special three-in-one gwp (gift-with-purchase) edition of the three books, but it didn't fly. I had suggested that the GWP be a wheel of fine aged cheese, but they politely thanked me for my idea and went to the next item on the agenda. Cheese doesn't really have anything to do with the books(I decided to cut out a scene where Takayuki and Skip Slydell discover that the secret of the zombies' return from death is linked to a particular brand of smoked Gouda found only in little roadside shops in upstate Vermont, for various reasons): I just like cheese.
