Warmed and Bound News and Interviews

Warmed and Bound is now available at Amazon.com, and was so popular on Barnes and Nobles’ site that we effectively broke the computer (and until they get things figured out, I suggest ordering through Amazon.)

The good news out of all that, however, is that we climbed the B&N sales charts, becoming the #1 trending book the day of release, and finishing the night #7 overall and #3 in paperbacks, just above the Harry Potter boxed set. Which is quite an accomplishment, to say the least.

In other news, many of the authors from the collection have been interviewed by Booked Podcast and many of those interviews are available now, with many more to come in the following days. Mine just went live today, as a matter of fact.

The Johnnie Walker Gold Label I'd been saving for the release.

All in all, we’re selling like hot cakes and getting some real recognition.

I’m sure all you who read the blog have already ordered a copy, and if it was cancelled form B&N due to the popularity, you’ve likely placed your order elsewhere.

How you can help, of course, is by spreading the word and keeping the momentum going.

Many thanks to those of you who have been supportive of me and the rest of the Velvet writers, for your loyalty and your friendship, and for making this whole experience such a rewarding success, and cheers to all of you.

Warmed and Bound : Table of Contents

I’m re-posting this from the official Warmed and Bound news blog, just to help get the word out.

The whole project is shaping up to be fantastic, so here are some highlights right out of the gate. First and foremost, an excerpt from Axel Taiari’s Death Juggler is being released along with this official list. You can find that at the bottom of this post or over on the official blog.

The next thing to point out is that some of the authors who made the cut are heavy hitters that many of us in the anthology have been drooling over for years now. Stephen Graham Jones, Brian Evenson and Craig Clevenger top that list for me. To check out each of their bios, just head over here.

And I don’t know if it means anything, but my story hitting the list just ahead of Clevenger is really cool. I like the proximity.

And here’s that excerpt like I promised.

It’s all laughter and nervous giggles until the bombs explode for real. Then the audience’s mood short-circuits fast as a brain stroke: a boom louder than staccato lightning strikes eardrums, a body skyrockets into the air, screams zigzag through the big top, people trample over each other for the swiftest way to the exit.

—first page, opening to Axel Taiari’s Death Juggler

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good opening line. I can’t fucking wait to read Death Juggler.

So stay tuned here, or just bookmark the official blog, for further updates as events warrant.
