Well, some of you may have noticed that my new short story collection did NOT hit the street when I announced it last month. You might have also noticed I never even posted ONE WORD of explanation. Well, guess what? That all changes today! Hooray for our side!
The short version is that the original cover and introduction to IT’S JUST US had to be put aside. This was due to scheduling conflicts, and of course I tried working around them. But sometimes bad magic is unavoidable. Because I could find no one to pen a new introduction or do a new illustration at that late hour, it fell upon Yours Truly, and squeezing it all into my already-insane do-do list (much less even announcing a new release date) was next to impossible . . . but it was very important for me to have this book out by the end of this year. Sigh. So I just got it done however I could. Above is pictured the new cover.
The book will finally be out next week, on Wednesday December 28.
Just got it out under the gun, folks.
Because I have published this edition through my own imprint Eibon Press, there are intrinsic difficulties. I’m sure I’ll spot errors and oversights that have not yet been corrected by the editorial staff. (READ: Me and two other people.) That said, there may be a second edition of IT’S JUST US in the future. But for now I’m fairly happy with what the book is. I think it has some great stuff in it and I hope you love it.
As a thank you to whoever is paying attention, and an apology for my lateness, I’m offering the first three PROOF COPIES hot off the press FREE OF CHARGE to whomever messages me first. That’s three copies, one for each person, and each copy will be personally autographed and inscribed. You only need to give me your name and address and pay the shipping cost of 7.00 domestic. (Overseas people have to pay a little more obviously, but that depends on where exactly where you are.) You will receive the VERY FIRST printed copies of IT’S JUST US, signed by little old me and stuff.
IT’S JUST US is a sort of sequel to THE RIOT ACT, with more bizarre and bloody adventures from the Klown Prince Of Darkness.
Merry X-Mas, folks and a Happy Nude year!
