Just a quick update to start 2012.
Simon and Schuster released Already Gone in the UK on December 8th, and the response has exceeded all my expectations. It hit the Heatseekers Chart the first week after the release, and climbed into the top five the second week. I have no idea where it is now, but with any luck the momentum is still going strong. I’ll post a new update when I hear more.
A lot of really good reviews have come in since my last update, and I’m flattered so many people are enjoying the book. Here are a couple of my favorites that popped up recently:
The Nerd of Noir @ Spinetingler Magazine
The Lincoln Journal Star
I also did an interview with Ray Banks at his blog. You can read that one here:
The Saturday Boy
Several people have emailed asking about appearances and signed copies. Here’s what I’ve got set up so far:
Left Coast Crime (Sacramento, CA) in March.
Bouchercon (Cleveland, OH) in October.
Thrillerfest (NYC) in July.
Noircon (Philadelphia, PA) in November.
There are a couple tentative in-store signings in the works, but I'll post those when I know the final details. If you want a signed copy, but you don't think you'll make it to any of these stops, just email me here, and I’ll give you an address where you can send your books. We’ll figure it out.
That’s it for now, but since one of my 2012 resolutions is to update this blog more often, you should hear from me again soon. Until then, I want to say thank you to all the readers, reviewers, and friends who picked up copies of the books and helped me spread the word in 2011. I had a fantastic year, my best yet as a writer, and it wouldn’t have happened without everyone’s support.
And as always, thanks for reading.
