All the way from London, England...

I love it when a big box o' books arrives on my doorstep. And I love it even more when the box is filled with my books.

This is the first package I've ever received from the UK. It was very exciting, indeed!


My CREEP UK paperbacks! They're big! And... flexible!


I love how CREEP looks in paperback. Love love love.


Welcome to the family, paperback CREEP! (Yes, I realize I photograph my books like they're children, but I can't help it. They're gorgeous, if I do say so myself.)

Big thanks to Sphere, my UK publisher, who've been so wonderful to work with. My editor, Catherine Burke, is absolutely lovely, and you should follow her on Twitter (@CathBurke_Ed) because she's so sweet and funny and I love how she says "Hurrah!" instead of "Hooray!". CREEP will be out on December 22nd in the UK. You can pre-order it now from Amazon UK.

Oh! And in other news (please excuse all the exclamation marks in this post, but sometimes periods just don't adequately convey my enthusiasm), look what's available for pre-order on Amazon: FREAK! Which will be released in hardcover on August 7, 2012.

Got good news to share? Or just news? Do tell!

  2. "Yes, I realize I photograph my books like they're children, but I can't help it." - You crack me up! Let me just say that they look better than some of my family photos growing up. ;-) Seriously, though, I love that size! Too exciting! AND FREAK is ready for pre-order? Wowza! It's Christmas indeed. :-) One of these days I will have good news to share with you!

  4. Very, very COOL! And I really love trade paperbacks, btw. Sometimes I prefer them over HC, even, just on portable flexibility alone. Mass-market paperbacks are too small.

    Congrats, you big time author you! :)

  5. John Locke refers to his novels as if they were human salesmen on a route. Your way is more humane and funny! Congrats, Roland

  18. August 7, 2012 is an eternity! But the UK copies of Creep are totally awesome and if I had my books published, I'd be having photo shoots on a daily basis so I see nothing wrong with it! LOL. They do look really awesome. Yay! (I have no good news to report unless no news is good news, but I am very much enjoying hearing yours!)
