Congrats, Dale :) Great to have an update. Any news re. remaining queries on the novel?

call me impatient, (because i am) but i gave up on the query wait today and signed a contract with a small publisher. i just signed it
and already they're planning a release date of january, are scheduling me a local book signing. getting reviews lined up, and helping
me polish up my social network a bit......far more than the small publisher releasing my novella next summer is doing. my WIP is less offensive
and more literary, so hopefully the agent search will go better with that. but for this debut novel? i'm satisfied so far with where it's
going.

Wow that's quick!

It's good to see that they're taking an active hand in selling the book.

Congrats Dale, did you ever finish the last chapter???

lol. yeah. that little self inflicted panic trick of mine actually worked. it became double panic right after, because after i sent
those premature queries off, i finished the chapter i was working on to discover it needed another one. i was like "oh my god...
....i have to have another chapter!!!!!" i got it done in time, though.

It makes sense when I think about it. It costs them money to sit on your book and keep revising it in the long run. But if they turn it out as quickly as humanly possible then the costs are lowered. Since there won't be a huge marketing campaign accompanying it, January isn't so hard (except on the guy that has to do all the edits ;)).

Good for you, dale! Talk about pressure.

I am new here and having a hard time building my ability to give constructive criticism. The main reason I came here was for feedback on my latest story but I still need to reach ten posts. Just thought I would stop in because the title caught my eye. I think it's great this site helped you get accepted for publishing.

Congratulations. I have to say by reading the short explanation of the book, it sounds way over my head. :read:

thanks, lew. it's a disturbing book. it even made me uneasy a couple times while writing it, to be honest.

lovecraft eZine has requested a copy of the book for possible review. keeping my fingers crossed he finds the book worthy enough
to dedicate a review to there. with my lack of social networking skills, i need all the reviews i can get.
