But wait — there’s more!!!

This just in: the Science Fiction Book Club has picked up Midnight Never Come as a “Main Selection” for June! (Er, I assume that’s June of this year. But checking the e-mail, it actually says “a June catelog,” so who knows — maybe it’s June 3185.)

A peek behind the business curtain: the money from this gets funneled through my publisher (since they’re the ones who licensed that sub-right). Which means I’m suddenly a leap closer to earning out the advance for MNC . . . and the book isn’t even out yet! My pie-in-the-sky dream is to earn out by the end of the first royalty accounting period, but since it hits the shelves June 9th and the period ends June 30th, that pie is pretty far up there. This sale just brought it down by a couple thousand feet. I may just make it after all . . . .

    That’d be awesome! And congrats on getting picked! I forget – preorders are better than just walking in and buying it, or not? If so, I’ll go preorder it at B&N…

    That means that there are very good odds that my mom (who gets most of her books from the SFBC, since she doesn’t get out and has no internets) will be able to buy an awesome book that has my name in it.

    This pleases me.

    Hooray! I’m really looking forward to this one! And, it’ll come out when I can actually read it. Yay!

      As in, when you have spare time? <g>

      (As tends to be true for authors, I won’t have the time to read it when it comes out. Not that I would, but point being — busy with next book. Like you do.)

    What if we stood in bookstores and slipped it into people’s hands?
