As I am reading on a lot of my author-friends blogs and websites, I too must announce a delay in the publication of my books. While we’re all physically isolating to flatten that curve (a policy I am 100% behind) my publisher has let me know that The Detective and the Spy is being bumped into the fall. This means Trip of the Dead and The Detective and the Spy could potentially come out within weeks of each other which is weird, but whatcha gonna do?
I’m going to sit here in my home office in Toronto and be grateful that my food and mortgage are not dependent on my fiction writing because there are a lot of fine artists out there who cannot say the same.
So, here’s to all of the amazing indie bookstores trying to stay afloat, the authors whose books came out just as the pandemic hit and had to cancel the launch parties and to all the editors and writers out there who just need to get back out there.
I see you, I will retweet you, I will order your books and I wish you all good health.
