Oh my God, you guys — IT’S FINALLY HERE. That’s right, as of TODAY my seventh novel, BONESHAKER is officially available … and I for one could not be happier (as I trust you can gather by the accompanying photo).
Go on! Click right here! Note the big green “IN STOCK” status on Amazon.com. And while you’re there, if you haven’t already, I’d like to rather shamelessly ask you to take a chance on it — if you are so inclined.
If you’d like to know more about it first, please allow me to point you at this interview over at the Mad Hatter blog. It too went live today; and in this interview I talk a bit about the Clockwork Century universe, the players in it, the hats I like to wear, and at least two things that very few people know about me.
For a much more in-depth discussion of this book, this universe, and everything else — visit The Clockwork Century and poke around all you like. There, you’ll find maps, commentary on the philosophy of steampunk, novel summaries, and some enticing reviews.
No, really. This one got a starred review from PW, my first truly favorable nod from Kirkus, and friendly words of recommendation from everybody from Mike Mignola to Warren Ellis and Wil Wheaton (all of whom — and everyone else quoted here — I thank from the very bottom of my heart).
[Side note: For U.K. readers, I am told that your easiest way to acquire Boneshaker will be through Amazon.uk.]
So. If you have any interest whatsoever in steampunk pulp adventuring, alternate history, dirigibles, pirates, zombies, secret criminal societies, and Bonus! extended deleted scenes from the Civil War, I honestly believe that this book may well be right up your alley.
Thank you so much for reading, and thank you so much for picking up this book, if you can be persuaded to do so. And if you feel the urge to repost this information or pass it around — that it might better reach others who might also dig a good steampunk pulp adventure — then please don’t let me stop you. For that matter, if you read an advance copy of this book and enjoyed it enough to tell people about it, I’d be forever grateful if you’d take a moment to share that opinion by blog or by customer review.
Anyway. Wow. Yes. Today’s the day, and I’m all out of breath just from the sheer excitement of it. Thanks again, everyone. Times a million or more.
