Today is the big day! Arthas formally hits bookstores and you can get your very own copy! It was a lot of fun to “debut” the book a couple of days ahead of time at Starfest this weekend. People were very excited to have the chance to pick up a book so new and shiny that it hadn’t even hit stores yet. I sold over thirty-five copies, and some people were already well into the book by the time they left the convention!
As you all know from reading the blog, there is a limited edition print run of 10,000 copies in the gorgeous leather box featuring my signature on the book. I’ve already done five thousand, and Pocket says they want five hundred more! We may run out that full ten thousand, who knows? 🙂 I’ll be signing more on Tuesday and my hand is feeling fine.
I am theater trained and I miss acting, so I always love to do readings from my books. I like to think I’m pretty good, but I have to say…Chris Metzen is better! Here’s a link to him reading from the prologue of ARTHAS and also some very cool wallpaper of that incredible cover.
And fun fact? A huuuuge snowstorm rolled into Colorado on Friday, the first night of Starfest. dropping up to 18 inches of snow. Hm…..big old snowstorm the same day Arthas becomes available for purchase in Denver? Coincidence? YOU TELL ME. He’s a pretty powerful dude, that Lich King….
