Heya, folks!

If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have missed that a) I sold a novel, and b) that novel is coming out on September 30th.

But what you do not know is that I will be holding an official West Coast Release Party for Flex at Borderlands Books in San Francisco on October 11th!  I’m psyched, because the one time I went to this shop (which specializes in fantasy, sci-fi, and horror), I totally fell in love.  A love I expressed judiciously with my credit card and a bent back, staggering out of that store with an absurd load of books.  To get to do a reading/Q&A/signing there is totes exciting.

(I’ll also probably go out for drinks afterwards and invite you along, just to spend more time with y’all.  I like people.)

You may ask, “Ferrett, what about an East Coast Release Party?  Or, you know, a Cleveland one?”  And I’m still researching those.  Locally, I have some friends who need a bookstore that’s wheelchair-friendly, which rules out a surprising amount of local bookstores (as it wouldn’t be a party without those friends).  And if you know of a good New York-based bookstore that’d be amenable to a weasel, let me know.

You may also ask, “Ferrett, what about a Florida Release Party, or a Southern Release Party, or a European one?”  And the answer is that “Ferrett has a limited amount of vacation time, and family to visit on both coasts.  These Release Parties are tremendously exciting but also a net loss in cash, as there’s no way I’ll sell enough books at Borderlands to fund the airplane trip to San Francisco – so alas, this is not so much ‘a book tour’ as ‘Ferrett thinks this would be fun to visit his mother and throw this in.’”  While I’d love to visit your home town, I don’t have that kinda money to burn.  Three stops is the max.

But you can still order Flex from any number of bookstores in advance.  Which would be nice.  Authors live or die on preorders, so if you’re not gonna attend a release party but wanna celebrate, you can do a little dance when Flex arrives on your doorstep.

In New York City, we have a few independent bookstores, including McNally-Jackson in Nolita; St. Mark's Books will also be relocating to 3rd street and Avenue A sometime in the fall, probably; either one would be a great choice for a release party, as they're both very progressive bookstores. You might even make some money off a release party out here.

I will probably get the Kindle version soon; can't autograph it, but it's very portable that way.
