All with added exclamation marks!!!!
A writer’s exclamation mark count really is like any normal person’s heart beat rate. There is a direct relationship between the total count per page and how excited he or she is feeling. So, you guessed it, I’ve got some exciting news! Momentum has announced release dates for Timesplash and its sequel. Timesplash will be available on 1st June and the sequel (which still doesn’t have a name!) will be out on 1st July.
In fact, you can go to the Timesplash Amazon page or its iTunes page right now and pre-order a copy. Is that not great? I was expecting release dates in Q4 this year but I’ve been bumped up the schedule it seems. The only trouble is (and you can see this on the pre-order pages) the books don’t have covers yet. An artist has been appointed and he or she is “working on concepts” at the moment so I guess we’ll just have to wait to see what they come up with.
Meanwhile, if you’re hungry for a Timesplash fix and can’t wait until June or July, a new anthology is out called Sidekicks! that contains some terrific short stories on the theme of heroes and their sidekicks and I have a story in there called “After the Party” about a teknik and his brick. You can get your copy of Sidekicks! by clicking this link! And no, it isn’t me doing it, that exclamation mark in the name of the anthology was put there by the publisher. I guess he was excited too!
As ever, I’ll let you know as soon as there is more news.
