Yesterday in the mail I received the ARCs (Advance Review Copies) of King of Shards. And while this is of course not the finished book, it’s pretty cool to hold the book in my hands. I’ve seen the other great titles Resurrection House has put out, so I know I’m in good hands with them. This is also that weird interstitial period, where my book is out with reviewers and I don’t know how it will be received. I think it’s a damn great book. But, of course, I’m biased. Anyway, it’s exciting to see the novel slowly come to fruition. The book will be available to buy on October 13, but you can preorder a copy now from most booksellers.
