At long last, the paperback process is underway!!! The Silencer will be the first to go into paperback to coincide with the upcoming audiobook. It's currently being formatted and the cover is also being worked on. It'll have to be proofed once everything's together, but I would imagine that it should be available by the end of May.
I've previously gotten a few questions about autographed copies when they were eventually available, and my initial thoughts are that I'll probably do two things. One, you'll be able to buy a copy on my website and I'll personally autograph it and send it to you. The price will be a little higher to account for shipping costs. The other is that I'll have book plates made that I'll personally sign (no copies) and send to someone if they request it. No payment necessary for that option as it'll only cost me a stamp.
The cover for A Dangerous Man is done and, if you looked at the main page of the site, has been revealed. Just in case you don't visit over there, I'll stick it in here too.
OK, so in my last entry I indicated that auditions were going on for the audiobook version of The Silencer. I am extremely happy to announce that we settled on a narrator and contracts have been signed. I am not ready to announce who it is yet, mostly because I want to get his OK with me spilling the beans. But I will say that I couldn't be happier as I wasn't expecting someone of his pedigree. It is an actor who has mostly done theatre, both on and off broadway, as well as some TV and film. He's also narrated best-selling books by authors like Jodi Picoult and Scott McEwen. Some of you may be able to deduce who it is if you dig hard enough.
I am also announcing that auditions are underway for Rogue Ghost. It'll probably be another week or so before any decisions are made as we're still in the early going for it.
Just giving a general update with some news and tidbits. First off, an official blurb has been released for A Dangerous Man, which can now be seen in the Coming Soon section. Second, based on comments and feedback I've received, both The Silencer and Rogue Ghost have undergone some slight changes. Mostly, it's just some editing issues that slipped through the cracks, misspelled words, unnecessary dialogue tags, things like that. So if you want a cleaner copy, I'd suggest you download the newer version. There are no new sections, chapters, or content so don't think you're missing out if you don't download a newer copy, or if you're content with the older versions.
Second, the wheels have been set in motion to put The Silencer out on audio. Auditions for a narrator are currently underway. Hopefully I'll be able to decide on someone within the next week. After that, it'll probably take about two months before it's released. Somewhere around there. Speaking of audio, the last book of The Cain Series, The Cain Redemption, should be wrapped up in the next couple of weeks.
After some prodding by people around me, a few emails, some fan requests...I've finally gone and created a Facebook page. It's still in its infancy, and I still don't quite have the hang of how it works, so stick with me a little while until I figure it out. To celebrate the ceremonial opening of it, I'm offering free copies of The Cain Conspiracy audiobook. To be eligible to get a copy, all you have to do is like the page and comment under the audiobook offer post. That's it. If you have friends that might like the audiobook, please share!
Just in case you haven't been following along, Hard Target was released on Saturday. The books page has been updated with Hard Target's description, as well as clickable links to the retailers it can be purchased from. The newsletter also went out today with all that information, so you should be swamped with Hard Target news! So far we've gotten off to a great start and sales were strong over the opening weekend. I would just like to say thank you to my readers, thank you to the people who email and say they enjoy the books...I really appreciate it!
