Novel Update

Posted on: March 24th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 9 Comments

Things are really moving along now with Soundtrack to the End of the World.  The good people at Bad Moon Books have been in constant contact over the past month or so as we continue to work towards our “early 2012” release date.

About a month ago Bad Moon sent the first draft for me to go over, so I could make last minute changes.  A couple weeks later they sent the final edits with a few more changes/questions.  I also wrote all of the front and back matter (acknowledgments, dedication, synopsis, author bio, etc.)  for the book at that time and sent it all back the next day.

Yesterday I received word that the signature sheets (for the limited edition hardcover) are on their way to my front door.  I’ve been sitting on most of the artwork for the novel for a while now, but when the sig sheets arrive, I’ll snap a few shots and post a “reveal.”  However, I am still going to make you wait a bit longer for the cover.  Oh I know, I know.  I’m a real tease.  But I have a good reason for it!  Although the cover art is completed, it doesn’t yet have the title and other text incorporated.  See, I’m not a total bastard after all.

    You have a lot more strength than I do when it comes to “keeping it to oneself”. I hate keeping secrets… even cover art. I’m just happy that its coming! Write up press releases and send them around!

    • That’s a good idea. I’ll probably do that once I have a solid release date. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

  2. Can’t wait, dude. Seriously. I refuse.

    Will there be a Kindle edition available? I only ask because Gizmo is salivating at the prospect…

    • Thanks, Milo! Well, initially there is going to be the signed hardcover special edition, promptly followed by a trade paperback. At the moment those are the only rights I signed away in the contract, but I think Bad Moon does eventually release the books in ebook format too. I’m not sure when or if that will happen though.

    I was wondering how things were going. Nice to know I’ll be able to enjoy the main event soon. I’d be busting out of my skin waiting, in your shoes. I don’t have a lot of patience and from what I gather this business requires tons.

    And on puppy love, won’t see them until next weekend. Talk about bumming. Eh *shrugs* (Hugs)Indigo

    • Oh, that stinks, Indy. I hope the week goes quick for you at least.

    Really looking forward to this.

  5. Awesome. Can’t wait.
