Awesome, right? EVERYONE AT THE NOVEL RELEASE PARTY WILL RECEIVE MONEY, BOOZE, POWER, AND ALL THE STRANGE CHEESES THEY CARE TO EAT!
Wait, what? The invitations didn't go out?
Me? Dammit, I thought you had 'em.
Instead, here's a look at real life. This week, my eldest daughter Virginia is getting married to her fiance, Cody. They're fantastic kids, and they've been working on what they've got for much longer than it took to write Dark Crescent. This is their week.
Today is still mine, though.
I reminded my wife this morning that today was the release date, and she said, "Excellent! I'm so proud! But for now, take out the trash, then go buy some jalapenos. I'll make a pot of chili the way you like it tonight." You might think it's no big deal, but none of you have ever had Jennie's chili. It'd make a rich man beg. NO, you can't have the recipe. Don't even ask.
Other than chili and beer tonight, my celebrations are consisting of creating and proofreading a series of blog posts, chipping away at my current Work In Progress, and helping the kids get ready for their wedding. I've got a guest blog post showing up on the 12th over at the Darkness Dwells website. Come by and check it out.
The booze and strange cheeses? That is actually occurring, but tomorrow. It's just happening with the bride and groom taking center stage, not the father of the bride and his weird imagination. I'll stand in the background and be the proud poppa, and if my mind wanders, you can be sure that it's only traveling as far as the next story.
Get Dark Crescent. Click the cover art, then purchase. I'm extremely stoked about my new novel, and I know when you read it, you'll love it, too.
Talk to you soon,
