US release schedule

First, remember that nothing is set in stone; this schedule will PROBABLY not change, but that doesn’t mean you should burn down a windmill if it does.

With that caveat, I’m pleased to announce that Tor has ‘finalized’ a release schedule for the Serial Killer books:

I Am Not a Serial Killer: April 2010 (which, in practice, means March 30)
Mr. Monster: October 2010
Full of Holes: April 2011

They will be released as trade paperbacks, about 6 months apart, with a “significant investment” in bookstore displays and such. I’m incredibly excited. Releasing the books on an accelerated schedule like this will build a lot of momentum, and we should be able to generate a lot of excitement. I’m starting to work on a book tour for this spring, so if you live near (or work in) a bookstore you’d like me to visit, please let me know!

    Dan, did you sell your Canadian rights along with the US ones? I know sometimes Canada comes with the UK deal instead. Are these the expected release dates for Canada too?

    I assume your tour will be US only, like most tours, which is unfortunate.

    Oh, Come to Seattle! I will travel to any of the bookstores in the area to get the book (which I have been waiting anxiously to see released), and an autograph. Plus, Seattle is super cool. And it will be so pretty in April/May/June!

    Ummmm, dare I say Reno, NV? Come to the Barnes&Noble here! You already have a few fans here who’d like you to sign their copies.

    It would be great if you stopped by Dallas, Texas.

    Congrats Dan! This is terrific news.

    Any chance you could drop by the New England area? I live in Rhode Island but could drive to CT or MA if necessary.

    So, I never knew what the name of the third book was. Until now. Bonus! Excited to read them all. Luck on your current project, and I’ll be watching for announcement of the tour.

    Do you think you can stop by the Barnes and Noble in Collierville, Tennessee? I would love to have you sign my books, I Am Not A Serial Killer, and Mr. Monster…

    Please let me know! I love your style of writing; the character reminds me of myself, aside from enjoying dead bodies…

    The ending of Mr. Monster was just plain evil. Hahah…
