    This is wonderful news, Sam, congratulations! Since reading that excerpt, I've been quietly salivating for more. It's on my wish list, love, and best of luck where sales are concerned.

    Do I get a signed copy if I pay the extra for postage?

    No signed copies yet, Pilgrim. It's being released first as an e-book.

    Some editing issues have forced the publishers to push the release date back at least a week. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement, but when you consider that there's usually an 18-month period between acceptance and publication with most publishing houses, another week or so is acceptable.

    How the eff did I not see this thread!? Holy cow! Congratulations, Sam! And by the way, I'm with Pilgrim: Whenever it's released in tangible form, I want a signed copy!

    Hey Sam, after US publication, how many weeks will it take for the book to appear in PH shelves, or at least the Asian shelves?

    ... Will the book even arrive here? *hopes*

    Oops, I haven't updated this thread. Okay, the novel is now set for an early December release in both paperback and e-book format. That keeps both camps happy, I feel, and it's the way I initially wanted it to be released.

    Steph -- Thanks. I'll have to get back to you on the signed copy, though. Unless I'm doing a book signing in your part of the world, that might take some doing. I will definitely do my best to get you a signed copy.

    Fuhrer -- I don't know that my marketing plan extends that far. It will be available to buy through Amazon, though, and I'm sure they ship to your neck of the woods.
