Heroes and Villains In Print

On the heels of yesterday's bestseller list news I have something you'll probably find even more exciting:


My publisher, Breathless Press, handed out the prelim print list for the next fiscal year. Both EVEN VILLAINS GO TO THE MOVIES and EVEN VILLAINS HAVE INTERNS (coming winter 2014/2015) are on the list. Once the books are available in print we'll start working towards stocking them in stores, including Barnes and Noble and local bookstores.

This is a big step forward for my little super villain series. I'm thrilled and terrified and elated and about to faint of fear from the thought of it. Being in print and on a bookshelf? That's the real deal. Visibility jumps. The ability to sign copies and hold GoodReads giveaways suddenly becomes an option. Hurrah!

So, details...

I don't really have any yet. I'm sorry! There's a lot to be discussed. There might be new cover art and EVEN VILLAINS HAVE INTERNS might go to print and ebook the same day (no release date has been set yet), and there's just a lot of little things behind the scenes that need to get worked out before this dream becomes reality.

But it is coming!

But... but what about EVEN VILLAINS FALL IN LOVE? I hear you ask. Well, EVFIL is a little bit
sort to be a Stormtrooper. Breathless Press is only considering stories over 40,000 words (roughly 100 pages) for publication, and EVFIL doesn't make the cut.

My editor and I discussed some solutions to the problem: writing a few more chapters, expanding EVFIL to make it longer, not worrying about print at all... but in the end we decided to print EVFIL with two (so far unfinished) short stories from the Heroes and Villains universe. EVFIL will come to print with the new stories THE SEA MONKEY INCIDENT about Young Evan and EVERY HERO NEEDS A VILLAIN, Evan and Tabitha's How-We-Met story told from Tabitha's POV.

Since the short stories still need to be written and edited it's entirely possibly that EVEN VILLAINS FALL IN LOVE Print Edition will hit the shelves sometime after the other two books. But it's coming.

If you want to be told as soon as I get the publication dates are for the print editions, get a sneak peek at the cover of EVEN VILLAINS HAVE INTERNS, or follow all my other bookish news you can sign up for my very irregular newsletter that only goes out when a new book is announced/released/ect.  

Now, go out and be the Hero or Villain you were born to be.
