On its way

The Chronicles of the Sea Dragon is en route to the printer as of 0600 tomorrow morning. Dropped it off with Fed-Ex to be delivered to Preney Print as soon as possible. perivayne did a bang-up job on the coloring for the front cover, esp. considering the time crunch I put her in.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to be ready in time for San Diego, but them's the breaks (as they say). I can't blame anyone but myself for the procrastination, but I will have it for Dragon*Con and Archon. Maybe I'll put in to see if they have any tables at SPX or Baltimore Comic Con and I'm definitely going to the New York ComiCon with Steve Roman in February.

The whole idea behind Chronicles #0 is publisher-bait anyway. Until I get some feedback from readers/retailers/other publishers, I don't see much reason to solicit it through Diamond. Considering how hideous the discount is to retailers to even consider a small-press book, I don't see much reason to waste the time or the money to try and solicit it unless I get some serious positive feedback for the book. Plus, I really don't want to get back into the "self-publishing" grind again. I'd rather concentrate on writing or at the worst, packaging the series. The whole printing/distributing/publishing thing is not that interesting to me anymore.

Still, I'm pretty geeked that Chronicles is finally out the door. I started working on this project back in 1994 and finally, 11 years later, it's come to fruition. I'm still in awe that Bill Bryan is doing the art on this project also. He's perfect for this style of story.

Speaking of writing, doing all the final touches for the book took a lot longer tonight than I thought it would. I wound up writing 1319 words tonight on Harbinger, but at least I did work on it.

Current Harbinger status:

(Edit: Be careful posting titles near midnight and always check for stupid spelling errors first. Sheesh)
