six months to go

The Harper peeps have spoken: Total Constant Order will go on sale October 23, 2007.

My students keep asking, "Aren't you excited?" But it still feels a little weird...learning to let go of my characters as they fly across the country.

I'll be posting links to reviews on my website. It's been a blast, meeting readers (through the magic of the internet) who have taken the time to write something nice about it.

The best thing about books is how they work like virtual reality. Everyone experiences their own custom-designed version of an imaginary landscape. What's cooler than that?

This morning, it's stormy in Miami. Rain drums the roof as I type.

It almost feels like fall.
