T-minus Two Weeks!


And I have finished copies. Very exciting!! It's all very very real. Or at least as real as it can be when it's a book that involves the breaking the universe.

Just a quick preview of the next few weeks. I am hard at work on a series of posts for next week devoted to revealing How I Write, How I Edit, I shall share my Original WONDERBAR Query Letter, and provide the secrets and the alchemy of creating planets that smell like burp breath. (Kidding about that last part).

And then starting May 9th we shall be hosting a special surprise or two that may involve winning something you may possibly want to own. Specific enough? (Prizes, prizes!)

WONDERBAR officially releases May 12th, and you are invited to the launch party on May 13th.

All this is to say: busy busy! Blogging time limited! But good stuff is in store. And if you haven't yet pre-ordered JACOB WONDERBAR AND THE COSMIC SPACE KAPOW, let me rather ostentatiously present you with some links:

Amazon!
Barnes & Noble!
Books-a-Million!
Borders!
Indiebound!
Powell's!

Very exciting!!!! I'm looking forward to you posts on your query and how you write/edit!!!!

Krista V. said...

So exciting, Nathan! (And I just have to say that, of all the industry goings-on I tell my husband about, your book is the only thing that's ever really caught his attention. He loves the title and the cover. Maybe we'll have to get two copies so we won't have to fight over one... :) )

Mr. D said...

Well, since it's a kid's book, I'll let my kids decide if they want to read Wonderbar. Fair enough? Don't worry, I'm betting they'll like it.

C.E. Hart said...

Congratulations! How exciting. :)

Did I hear prizes? lol

Laurel said...

Yay! Congrats and have fun!

Loree Huebner said...

D. U. Okonkwo said...

How exciting! Really chuffed for you. Looking forward to seeing that Query Letter :o)

Rick Daley said...

I'm going to buy a copy.

D.G. Hudson said...

Great Photo - had me wondering at first if that was the paint job on Jacob's flying saucer.

Things are 'ramping up' for Jacob and for you - CONGRATS on a job well done!

Thanks for the promise of sharing your inside tips. I'm looking forward to getting your perspective on the process (especially on how you do edits).

PS - you should do a book signing in Vancouver, you know. (Hint Hint) -- there's a fall conference here that many well known authors and agents attend (SIWC). Just sayin'.

Very nice, Nathan. Congrats!

Is the book hardback? (That's how it looks in the photo.) If so, double congrats.

Great cover art looks infinitely more amazing on an actual cover.

Tiffany C said...

Yay! I'm happy for you! Can't wait for your book to rocket to success!! I'm surrounded by kids who read MG so I know I'll be responsible for passing out several copies. Will you offer bookplates if we cover postage? The Avery velum labels work great.

Bane of Anubis said...

Congrats... looking forward to the wonderbarness.

Carrie said...

So exciting. Can't wait to read it.

Congratulations, Nathan! I expect you're experiencing a rather wide range of emotions right now. Excitement? Relief? Nerves? Well, you've made it this far--no one can stop you now!

So wonderful - that must be an amazing feeling holding your book in your hands.

Major congratulations, Nathan!

Am very much looking forward to your posts, too. And contests - very fun.

Sounds like you're totally busy, but I hope you get some time to really enjoy this. You only release your very first book once! :)

Lauren & Erin said...

Other Lisa said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! How totally awesome! I assume there will be corn dogs at the launch?

Best of luck to you with this and all future writerly endeavors, Nathan!

Kristin Laughtin said...

wendy said...

Congratulations on the imminent release. You and Jacob deserve to do well. Excited, too, about the up-coming blog events. You really give value for money on this blog, Nathan. :)

Jeff S Fischer said...

Yes, Yes, Yes, and sorry, broke as broke gets without starving on the last one. Sorry! But, yes, yes, and yes on the others. Good luck.

Anna Zagar said...

Oh Gawd, how awesome! A pile of your books. Squeeeeeal! Congrats, and have a blast (off) at your launch party!

The Lemonade Stand said...

congratulations! How fun to see the final product. Sure makes e-books seem less cool.

ddelano said...

Congratulations! Thanks for letting us all peek into this exciting process with you - I can't wait to by the book for my son (he will love planets that smell like burps!!)

J. T. Shea said...

Wonders never cease! Are them really HARCOVERS I spy in your pic, Nathan? Given your espousal of e-books I thought the only other WONDERBAR format would be direct retina beaming.

Anyway The Ever-Controversial Online Retailer Named After A Certain South American River currently offers the hardcover for $9.40 and the Kindle e-book for $10.49. The significance of which merits a whole Bransforums thread, I'm sure.

But seriously, congratulations Nathan, and I await your posts about writing WONDERBAR 1 and its query letter with bated (but non-burbing) breath!

Mom of Three said...

The perfect Moms' Day gift!

Remilda Graystone said...

Congrats, Nathan! Did I mention before how much I love the cover? It definitely stands out!
