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.

Big Box O' Books

My first big shipment of The Pack: Winter Kill copies have arrived. Let me tell ya, the thrill of opening a box of my own books doesn’t fade. This batch is all spoken for, with copies destined for the Twitter contest winners and the bookstores on the signing tour.

They even have that new book smell!

I’ll be signing a bunch of them over Christmas. I’ll call that a gift to myself. I still enjoy signing books because it means I’m working.

I’ll be handing everything off to my publisher this weekend, so the Twitter winners will receive their copies shortly after that. The rest I’ll be seeing again in California at Dark Delicacies and Borderlands Books.

Signing Announcement: Borderlands Books

I’m pleased to announce I’ll be returning to San Francisco, California to sign at Borderlands Books on Sunday, January 17th, at 3:00pm! Come on out and pick up your copy of The Pack: Winter Kill and feel free to bring along anything else you may have of mine while you’re at it.

I haven’t been out there since the 4×4 signing back in 2002, and I don’t think I’ve seen Alan, Jude, Jeremy, or the rest of the crew since World Horror 2003. Yikes! Way too long. I can’t wait to see the cafe Alan just added to the place.

Borderlands is the second stop on the trip, and the others will be announced soon. Evileye Books wants to make sure we have the books in place before announcing the signings, but Borderlands slipped me into their newsletter so I’m happy to continue the announcement here.

The good news is today Evileye has worked through some printing issues with the printer, so we’ll be good to go! As soon as they give me the high sign that the rest of the minitour dates will have stock, I’ll announce them as well.

If you’re in San Francisco, please stop on by and say hey! Borderlands is a great little shop and if you’re not shopping there already, you’re doing yourself a disservice. They fill orders by mail as well if you’re looking to get your hands on a signed copy but can’t make it to the store.

Hitting the Road!

A tour? Really?

Yes, really. I’ll be taking Winter Kill on the road in December and January, and here’s a glimpse of one side of the postcard Evileye Books will be sending out to support one of the events:

Round and round he goes. Where will he land? Nobody knows. (Yet.)

It’s still a bit early to announce specific locations, but I’ll give you a hint: I’ll be spending a weekend in warmer weather come January.

The book isn’t even out yet, but I’m already excited. Brian, Coop, Mikey, and I did a brief tour back in 2002 to support 4×4, but this will be a little bigger and will be the first time I tour to support a solo project. The logistics will be a handful, but I enjoy getting out there to promote my books. I’ve been way too quiet the last couple of years, so it’s time for a change.

Of course, I’ll probably have to stock up on vitamin C and Germ-X, and pack my trusty neti pot. All that plane time with the seasonal and swine flus spreading around could get messy!
