Yes, I know. You've all seen publication dates before: dates in 2007, 2008, 2009. None of those were ever hard dates, however. Most of them... well, call it wishful thinking, boundless optimism, **** dreams, honest mistakes, whatever you like.
This date is different. This date is real.
Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12 . I hope you like it.
I know quite a few of you guys have been interested in the books so I thought I'd share the great news. So feelings, thoughts? Anyone as excited as I am? I'm hoping they'll release a kindle version at the same time as the hard copy, but if not then I won't let that keep me from getting a copy on release!
