Back in April, I told you that the release date of the paperback edition of my book has been postponed to 5 November 2013 (see post). Well, my editor Gideon has just informed me that information has now become a lie: the release date has now been moved to 2 September 2014. The reason continues to be strong sales. Today, for example, the Amazon Best Sellers Rank of the hardcover is an amazing #496. Because sales for the hardcover has been so strong, HarperCollins decided to move the paperback release date even later than originally planned.
I asked Gideon to make a funny comment about this so I don’t have to funnify what he says, but he responded, “I fear being funny is best left to the Buddhists.” Good thing I’m a Buddhist, or there will be nobody around here to make the jokes, dammit.
Speaking of lies, remember when I told you I would donate 100% of my book profits to charitable causes? Yeah, about that, so far, I’ve been giving away more like 200% of my book profits. So I’ll need to earn another 100% from my book to make it not a lie.
But seriously, my friends, I couldn’t have gotten this far without readers like you. Thank you.
