The release date is January 3rd, 2012. I've got an ISBN and everything.
Shit's gettin' real, yo.
There's no cover art, yet, but I've seen the prelim sketches. I don't know how much I can talk about it, I'm still a little unclear on how this whole thing works, but I will say that it fucking rocks. They wanted to get a comic artist to do it and asked me who I wanted.
And then they got him.
Yeah, the people at DAW officially fall into the category of gods.
As soon as I know I can talk about it and post pictures I fucking well will. Believe me, you won't be able to get me to shut up about it.
The book's coming out in trade paperback and it is going to be gorgeous.
"But!" I hear you say, "I don't care about the cover. Is it crime? Is it urban fantasy? Is it sparkly unicorns with top hats fellating porcupines and prancing about the Maypole? I want to know what the book is ABOUT!"
And the answers are "Yes," "Yes," and "Keep your sick fetishes to yourself. Believe me, we're full up over here as it is."
Joe Sunday’s dead. He just hasn’t stopped moving yet.It's very dark, it's very violent. I do things to midgets.
Sunday’s a thug, an enforcer, a leg-breaker for hire. When his boss sends him to kill a mysterious new business partner, his target strikes back in ways Sunday could never have imagined. Murdered, brought back to a twisted half-life, Sunday finds himself stuck in the middle of a race to find an ancient stone with the power to grant immortality. With it, he might live forever. Without it, he’s just another rotting extra in a George Romero flick.
Everyone’s got a stake, from a psycho Nazi wizard and a razor-toothed midget, to a nympho-demon bartender, a too-powerful witch who just wants to help her homeless vampires, and the one woman who might have all the answers — if only Sunday can figure out what her angle is.
Before the week is out he’s going to find out just what lengths people will go to for immortality. And just how long somebody can hold a grudge.
I mean in the book, not... Okay, there was that one time, but I was really drunk.
