Release date change!

It looks like Seraphina will be coming out July 10th, 2012, instead of the previously announced date in May.

I realize that means waiting two extra months for it – and I totally sympathize with how heartbroken you all must feel – but it’s actually good news. Captain Editorpants assures me that this means Random House is trying to optimize the release date so that my book can make a bigger splash. Yay!

But even better than that: it means the book will be coming out the day after my 40th birthday. As if it were a birthday present, yes. It just strikes me as auspicious.

I’m not superstitious as a rule, but I’ve had enough setbacks and weird luck on the road to being published that I am only ever hesitantly optimistic. Somehow, though, this has broken through my skeptical shell just a little bit. July is a fine month to be born, for books and people both.

Time to start planning that party, methinks!

One thought on “Release date change!

  1. You do realize you’re going to need to have your cake printed with the final cover for the book, right? Or maybe a separate cake just for the book. Hmmm, more cake is always a good thing. . .
