Exciting Vertigo News & Starshine Sale
You know how the teaser for Vertigo at the end of Starshine says "Coming Next Winter"? Is October 'winter' by chance?
With all the standard caveats, I'm tentatively eyeing an October 8th, 2014 release date; if the next month goes spectacularly, perhaps even as early as the end of September. Stay tuned.
[EDIT:] September 25th looks good to me!
Those progress meters over on the right have been updated to reflect the book's 'mostly complete' status. Before too long you're going to see a Transcendence word meter show up over there as well - because I have learned the hard way that it is far easier to just keep writing than to stop writing and begin again!
As a side-effect of the editing, it came to my attention that on some devices (I'm looking at you, Kindle), the Vertigo cover looked too blue (and thus too similar to Starshine). So the cover images around the website have been updated with more purple!

One benefit which comes with participation in Kindle Select is the ability to do a "Countdown Deal" once every 90 days. So for the next 2 days, Starshine is on sale for 99 cents! On Friday it will be $1.99 for 2 days, then $2.99 for 2 days. I realize most people reading this probably (hopefully!) already own Starshine, but if you know someone who might be interested, let them know about the sale.
The next update should include more concrete information about the Vertigo release. I can't wait to share it with all of you!
