Yesterday the boxes of Too Cool to be Forgotten for MoCCA arrived! This was the first time I got to see them live and in person and I think they did a great job designing the look of the thing (the contents inside are another matter, of course!).

That looks so awesome!
I can't wait to hold it my own hand.

...and read it.
I'll probably read it too.

Man, those look so much better than these crappy advance galleys that I've been sending everybody.

Can't wait!

Can´t wait!
Will you come to Barcelona to launching it?
I want to read it in English, not a Spanish translation!

Re: maria from bcn
Thanks, everyone!

We signed up with Astiberri (who already published my other books in Espanol) so hopefully I'll be able to return to promote that--I'll make sure to bring you an English copy.

You should make some huge cigarettes to confuse buyers!
It's not a book, it's tobacco! ;)
Or you could dress Tony in drag and make him wear a little hat and he could sell them out of a box?
or not... still... COMEDY GOLD.
Can't wait to see it and you and Kristen at MoCCA! :)

No, no, no. The last time I dressed in drag for Alex was the LAST time I'll dress in drag for Alex.

How much would it be to buy a copy from you, all signed and stuff. I've got a bit of paypal money burning a hole in my virtual pocket.

And I've already sent you a nickel.

I really don't want to buy it at the store and wait for to see you in person to sign it. Who knows when I am ever going to get out of Michigan again, and you never seem to make it to the big mitten.

Congrats! Didn't realise it was going to be hardback, it looks brilliant. Will have to wait til it gets released over here in the UK to get a copy. Wish I coulda made it to Mocca..

And how did our Doozer Cat sneak into your photo?

Fantastic! I don't normally pickup hardcovers but I am definitely making an exception.

You should totally smoke that shit.

I can't wait!!

I didn't even know there was a HC edition! All amazon tells me is that I'll have to wait another 1,5 months for it to arrive in the FATHERLAND, in floppy version. I've been looking forward to this for years, and judging by the preview pages, it's going to be amazing! Congratulations!

Re: OMFG!!
It seems that Amazon's information is not quite up-to-date, since the decision to release the book in hardcover came fairly late in the game. At this point, the book is only available in hardcover (at least in English; I don't know if the other publishers will follow suit) and we haven't discussed a paperback version so--for the time being, at least--this is the only way to get the story.

bravo mon ami
Congratulation !
Can't wait to read it as a book !
The cover is really great

Wow, that looks awesome in hardcover!

I'll be grabbing that tomorrow.
