Last week’s shock has begun to fade, and while I would love to say that
I am getting back to “normal,” I am no longer certain exactly what
If anything in my life can be said to fit that bill, it is the
publication of a book. In the first month of this year, when Covid-19
was still just one of many feeds on my news site watchlist, I made the
decision to commission Zhivko Zhelev to make new covers for all my
existing novels. In addition to new covers, I decided to continue honing
my print layout abilities by doing brand new interiors for all of those
novels as well.
When I started putting together the release dates for the new books, a
happy coincidence presented itself: August 1, 2020 is the fifth
anniversary of the release of Schrödinger’s City. This coming
Saturday, I will be releasing the novel’s newest edition, featuring
Zhivko Zhelev’s beautiful new cover. Those who already own the ebook
will get the updated cover as well as access to a new afterward, one I
will also post on this blog this coming Tuesday.
This Thursday on the blog, I am planning a post about the book’s new
interior design compared to previous versions.
As for the release itself, I will hit the button to publish the print
book and update the ebook early in the morning on Saturday Pacific time.
I expect it to be available the following Monday at the latest.
I did not do any writing this weekend, but that was probably for the
best. I am aiming to resume my Saturday Shorts series next weekend
along with the obligatory post.
