Asyouknowbob, Carousel Sun, the eagerly-awaited sequel to 2010’s smash hit Carousel Tides, will be published in February 2014.
Now, asyouALSOknowbob, Carousel Sun will, like its prequel before it, be published as a trade paperback. Which is perfectly fine; I like trade paperbacks. Especially when they have my name on the front cover. In fact, the only thing wrong with trade paperbacks is that they do not enjoy the “signed edition” status currently bestowed upon Baen hardcovers. Doesn’t seem fair, somehow. I said as much to Don Blyly of Uncle Hugo’s, and —
So, here’s the deal. Don and I are working on a way to provide those who want them with signed copies of Carousel Sun.
But that’s not all! We’re trying to figure out a system that will allow me to personalize copies of Carousel Sun pre-ordered from Uncle Hugo’s (and only from Uncle Hugo’s). Which, if we can pull it off, would be very cool indeed.
Watch this space for details. This has been a Distant Early Warning; the pre-order page will in no case go up on Uncle Hugo’s website before mid-November.
. . .and there you have it. Is that exciting or what?
