Travel Mode

I’m making the final preparations for this weekend’s signing trip, which will include turning the blog over to travel mode. Assuming I have time to take pics and fire off some Tweets from the road, they’ll be showing up here in daily digests. I suspect I’ll either be thrilled with the crowds at Dark Delicacies and Borderlands Books or Brian, Jesus and I will be hanging out in a bar and wondering why nobody showed up. Or hell, maybe we’ll be at a bar celebrating the huge turnout.

There will be a bar in there somewhere, anyway.

Wish us luck, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. I’m off to get my stuff together and maybe squeeze in a last minute Photo Friday entry.

For now I’ll leave you with an unrelated picture from this morning:

Hes coming for us all

He's coming for us all!

Big Week for The Pack

There’s a lot going on this week for my new book, The Pack: Winter Kill.

First up, the first reviews have been rolling in to Amazon (both the paperback and the Kindle edition), and so far they’ve been very positive. The noir-horror hybrid seems to be a big hit, and people have been happy with the pacing and action. So far, so good. I just hope magazine and newspaper reviewers are as generous.

In an attempt to encourage even more reviews, the publisher, Evileye Books, launched a review contest. If you’ve read the book, drop by and tell the world (or at least Amazon shoppers) what you think and you may just win a signed, limited edition hardcover edition of The Pack: Winter Kill. You’ve only got ’til Friday to enter, so get crackin’!

On Friday I’ll be catching a flight out to California to meet my friends (and authors) Brian Keene and J.F. Gonzalez, and on Saturday you can catch us at 2pm at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, CA. The following day, we’ll be heading up north Borderlands Books in San Francisco to sign at 3pm. I’ll be doing a lot of flying a s a result, but I’m looking forward to reconnecting with some old friends and meeting some new readers. (It’ll also be nice to trade in the snow and cold for some warmer weather.) There’s a full schedule on my Appearances page.

These are exciting times, and with a little effort, I should be able to keep up the momentum.

The Pack Unleashed Tour — Special Guests!

Just announced! Both Brian Keene (The Rising, Urban Gothic) and J.F. Gonzalez (Survivor, Primitive) will be joining me on the California leg of my The Pack Unleashed Tour.

Déjà vu?

Ack! Look at that gut! Right before I started karate.

Ack! Look at that gut! Right before I started karate.

Well, not really. Jesus (far right) mainly joined us to hang out at this signing at Comix Connection, and Coop (seated) won’t be coming to Cali, but we’re looking forward to hitting the road together. We’ve been friends for a while, and I’ve collaborated with both of them in the past. My collaboration with Brian, “To Fight With Monsters” (4×4), has long been unavailable, but you can still get your hands on the novella “Restore From Backup” by Jesus and I.

Come on out and see us at the following locations:

Burbank: Dark Delicacies Bookstore, January 16th, 2pm
San Francisco: Borderlands Books, January 17th, 3pm

January’s going to be a busy month for The Pack, but I’m excited to get out there and promote my work again. I’ll sign whatever you have, but please do support these stores while you’re there and pick up a book or two.

Look for additional signing locations in the coming weeks.

Tour Plans

The mini tour to promote The Pack: Winter Kill is taking shape. So far I’ve confirmed stops for January in California, Indiana, and Missouri, and we’ll be announcing them soon.

Not much love from my home state of Illinois just yet. Evileye Books and I are flirting with a couple of shops, but so far it’s looking like the first real opportunity to push locally will be the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo in April.

I’m kicking around the idea of heading out east for some signings, too. It’s far from firm, but if things move forward, I would be aiming for summer or fall. There are a couple of conventions I’ve had my eye on out that way, and maybe I can work something around one of them.

As for the book itself, we’re getting closer. We’re still working on a final fix with the printers, then we’ll be ready to rock ‘n’ roll. I’m still confident we’ll have books in our hot little hands in December, including the copies won by folks participating in the Twitter contest a couple weeks back.

The Missouri leg of the tour will be the Visioncon convention in Springfield in January. The rest of the dates and locations will be announced when we announce the paperbacks are available.

Soon, my friends! Very soon!
