We're only days away from the release of Incendiary. The paperback edition is set to release Nov. 30th and the eBook edition will release Dec. 7th! I'm listening to BREATHING UNDERWATER by METRIC and wondering, "Is this my life?"
The printed proof of Incendiary arrived at my office in the afternoon on Thursday (the 9th). I hadn't even realized it had shipped. When I figured out what it was that I was holding in my hand, it was a heart-pounding moment for me. It's strange knowing that it's the only copy--that it belongs to me. As I thumbed through it, my hands were shaky from a mixture of fear and excitement. It's heavy. It's a serious book.
I know I said I was going to submit my changes right away, but I'm more of a perfectionist than I thought. I had to look it over again. I took the weekend to do that and then I turned in my changes on Monday (yesterday).
Here's what will happen now: they have 5-7 business days to make the changes--the latest date for that is around the 21st. Then they'll ship me the new proof. Approximately 2-3 days to ship so the latest date is the 24th (which is a Saturday.). I'll approve the proof immediately (barring any huge debacles). I'll have to wait until Monday for them to be in the office to acknowledge the approval. From there, they'll build the site on Amazon. So it could show up on Amazon anytime between Nov. 28-30!! (or sooner!!) You know I'll post that it's there the second it shows up! I'll be the town crier!
After the print book posts, I'll initiate the eBook conversion. We're looking at Dec. 7th right now, but I'll know more soon. I can't wait for you to read this book. I really want to share it with you.
I'm leaving in the morning to go to the book signing in Baton Rouge! I'm looking forward to it. I hope I see you there!
