Somewhere Between Hiatus and Sabbatical
In the meanwhile, I want to alert you to a cover survey we're currently running. It's for a book called Danny Gospel set to be released in April 2008. It's a book that blew my socks off when it came in-house and I'm excited for it to hit shelves. If you're interested in weighing in with your opinion, head here.

Finished The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall. Deeply original and surprisingly poignant. I can't really even begin to describe it other than to say it's about devastating grief, and what makes us who we are, and, well, a conceptual shark who feeds on your identity. I wish I'd written it.
Mike Snyder seems to have a book coming out next year. Claudia Mair Burney has a tremendous cover for her newest book (it looks even better in person).
All for now.
