I am happy to announce that my latest book, The Quest, was published on Tuesday, September 17. As I’ve mentioned, most hardcover novels are published on a Tuesday. Why? Think of it as the starting gate in a horse race — about a dozen major novels line up in the gates on Tuesday, a gun is fired, and the announcer shouts, “They’re off! The Quest is out in front, followed by…” Well, I’m not saying who else is in the race, but let’s say The Quest has some stiff competition.
To further confuse the race, some books from the previous weeks are still on the track, jockeying for position. There are only a limited number of bestselling positions and it can get ugly.
Having said that, all authors are truly collegial and we wish each other well. We don’t, however, wish to be beaten.
The fall season tends to be crowded with big-name authors on the run-up to the holidays, and this is good for readers who have a lot of excellent choices. I urge you, my loyal fans, to put your money on The Quest.
The Quest is available in hardcover through your favorite online retailer, and also as an ebook and an audio download. The audio CD will be available shortly. There was a slight problem at the CD factory; they mixed up The Quest CD labels with the musical score from Mary Poppins. We’re getting it straightened out.
The audio is read by Scott Brick who is the narrator for all my John Corey books, and though I haven’t heard it yet, the people in the recording studio said it sounded great. Better than Mary Poppins.
What is The Quest about? It has been described as Indiana Jones meets The Da Vinci Code. Lots of action, romance, and mystery. I think this is one of my best books and I hope you agree.
Don’t forget, you can read the first two chapters of The Quest, for free, by clicking here.
Early sales of The Quest have been excellent and I thank you all for your continuing support.
