It’s official, folks — The Daedalus Incident will hit bookstores on Aug. 13! I just reviewed the final proof today, made a couple of tweaks (geez, how did I miss those?) and it’s off to the printers. To be printed. As a book. That you can buy.
It’s been a long and winding road, but I’m thrilled that it’s finally getting out there — and just in time for my first official signing at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach, Calif. on Aug. 17. It’ll be fun to have a signing in which I can, you know, sign books.
Of course, if you’re not in southern California, you can still get in on the fun. I’ll be the guest on the #SFFWTRCHT Twitter chat on July 10, and I’ll also be doing a Shindig event on July 24. (For those that don’t know — I didn’t until they approached me — Shindig is a Web-based group video chat platform. And the best part? It’s FREE. Click here to RSVP.) In fact, I did up a little events calendar in the right sidebar on the blog to keep everything straight, so check it out.
And you can now safely pre-order The Daedalus Incident with the knowledge that, yes, it will indeed arrive by Aug. 13…or a day or two after, depending on shipping and such. I’ve compiled a handy list of ordering links toward the bottom of this page, because I’m helpful. And, of course, Daedalus is available now in ebook, in case you like your gratification of the instant variety.
Many thanks to everyone at Skyhorse Publishing for pulling out the stops to get Daedalus printed on short notice. They’ve been really great to work with, and I have confidence Skyhorse and Start Media are going to be good stewards of Night Shade Books. Happy to be publishing Daedalus with them!
