No Sleep till FOC
(not literally tho, I'm def going to sleep tonight)
First. The Lux answer that is on all your minds in the comments of the last post has been answered. Apologies for the completely accidental tease — but I appreciate how engaged you all are in this! lol
Second. FOC for The Cull #1 tomorrow!!!
I know you guys are all about as locked in as you can be on this stuff, so I mostly don’t want to ask anything of you, just to thank you for your patience in the increased PR Chatter/Book roll out stuff to do. As I said before, with social media pretty broken and when not outright broken then pretty fractured and scattered to the wind right now it’s harder than ever to launch stuff successfully, so your patience is… awesome. Obviously we’re not going to just stop talking about THE CULL, but after tomorrow the noise should get down to a more reasonable dull roar at least, and we appreciate your patience with that — and assistance in telling everyone you know. ;D
We continue to get a lot of really positive response from retailers and pros. Midtown Comics very kindly hyped the book on their socials. And I got all the Retailer Packages out yesterday, which frees me up for starting shipping on all those orders you guys placed last weekend!
And I’m showing off new quotes today — first up, from the excellent GERRY DUGGAN:

So. Not a terrible day when some of your writing heroes say things like that about your work. Not too bad at all. <3
I hope you guys have a great Sunday. Give someone who needs it a hug, self-hugs accepted but not preferred.
