Just one week to go.
I admit, I set the release date and tour date to coincide with my initial promises made during the funding campaign, which was planned before I realized I’d be chronically ill with no help for three months now, so I’m kind of FREAKING THE FUCK OUT at the moment. I’m exhausted, not everything’s done yet, and I’m pushed well beyond my limits right now, but so it goes.
Today the first chapter was posted at the River site. Seven total (the first part of the book) will be available, one a day leading up to the release and tour start on the 25th. Rather than update my blog constantly, everything will be posted there, so please bookmark it for daily updates.
(If for some reason it’s not up, sorry. I scheduled it. I’m possibly asleep right now. I’ll fix it.)
Remember, River is not like my usual books. No one gets murdered. Nothing blows up. There are no guns and car chases. There is no sex and very little swearing.
Please do not be frightened by this fact; I promise, when you download it, it’s the right book and it’s really truly by me and I apologize for any confusion. I’ll make up for it by writing something terribly violent and sexy and full of cursing again soon.
I’m hoping to get River up for preorder on a few sites in a few days. Unfortunately, I can’t do that until I hear back from River campaign contributors so I can fill in the thank you page. To protect anonymity, I don’t want to release names without permission, and I asked for that along with a few other things I needed to send print and ebooks. Please check your spam folder and fill in the form if you haven’t already. If I have nothing by Wednesday, you won’t be included on the thank you page. If I don’t hear back about what format you want your ebook in, you’ll just get a PDF. If I don’t know what backlist books you want, I can’t send them. If I don’t know who to sign your print book to, it’ll just have my signature and no customization. I don’t have the spoons to keep following up and the form just takes a few minutes to fill in. Please and thank you, I *really* want to give you stuff.
If for some reason you indicated you wanted perks when you donated but have changed your mind, I’d like a clearly written note stating that. I’m obligated to fulfill the terms of the Indiegogo agreement and I don’t want to get in trouble for not doing so. Thanks.
