One week to go till the paperback release of Act of Will. Though it’s always exciting when a book comes out, there’s a measure of anxiety too, particularly in a case like this when I know that the performance of the paperback will determine whether or not there will be a third book in the series. The hardcover came out at a pretty tough time, so I’m hoping that this cheaper format ($7.99!) and swanky new cover (discussion of which you’ll find here) will bring a wider readership. Tell your friends. Better yet, buy it for them
In other news, I had a great ConCarolinas which featured–in addition to the great panels and signings–quality time with my Magical Words colleagues and the dreaming up of some exciting projects for the future. I’m also gearing up for Thrillerfest in July and getting as much work done as the World Cup will permit. I have completed an edit of the YA/middle grades book which WAS called The Olde Mirror Shoppe, but we have a new title now which took a long time coming and delayed the PW announcement mentioned below. That should be coming very soon.
