I started a full-time job on Monday, my first in eight years, so I haven't had much spare time for the progress report I've been intending to make. But today is my birthday, dammit, so I'm taking the time to check in.
Everything is on schedule with The Accidental Terrorist. Revisions are all done. My copy editor is copy-editing. (Hi, Paul!) Uncorrected ARCs have started making their way out to reviewers (and potential blurbers), and in fact we've already heard back from one who says a "very positive review" will be forthcoming. Shh.
Pre-orders for the signed hardcover edition are now closed. To everyone who ordered one, I'm happy to report that it looks like I'll be able to get everyone's books out to them before the end of September. To everyone else, the regular editions have begun showing up for pre-order on Amazon. I'm hoping they'll soon be listed on Indiebound too.
I'm beginning to get a bit of travel squared away too. With the new job, I won't make it to as many places as I had hoped, but it looks like things are lining up for me to get to Salt Lake City in October for the Exmormon Foundation Conference and Chicago in November for Tuesday Funk.
