|Hello from your Director of Døøm. As 2011 comes to a close, we’ve been plotting what’s upcoming in 2012, and getting ready for the battle, errr … I mean, the year ahead. Here’s what it looks like from here:
January: will see new merchandise in the Sigler Store. We’ll have “Dig the Sig” tees in the store shortly, and a few more tees coming by month’s end.
February 4th: is Superbowl Saturday, and is the launch of the pre-order for THE MVP (Galactic Football League Book 4). Pre-order starts at 9:00am PST on 2/4/12, and not one second sooner!
March: Our second ebook-only collection of short stories, BONES ARE WHITE will drop (probably).
April 3: Scott’s next book from Crown, NOCTURNAL, comes out in hardcover. A five-city book tour is under consideration for the first week, but you can and should pre-order right this minute as we’re stirring up some fun rewards for pre-ordering, and it doesn’t matter when you do it. So, use some of those holiday gift cards to secure your treat right now!
End of May: will see both Scott and me at Balticon 46! This is such a great con, and we’re already looking forward to it.
June: is a super busy behind-the-scenes month for us. We’ll be working on putting the print version of THE MVP to bed, and recording the audiobook as well.
July? Ooooof. Might just have to breathe a little. San Diego ComicCon is on the books as a potential visit for Scott, and a sure thing for me.
August 20 – 24: is the MVP Shipping “Hell Week.” We’ll be opening this up for volunteers again. Come join the fun! And right after that we head to Dragon*Con in Atlanta over Labor Day Weekend.
September 4: is THE MVP’s official publication date. At this moment there is talk of a potential MVP Tailgate Tour. If it happens, we’ll do that in September as well.
October 12 & 13: SiglerFest 2012, Las Vegas, NV. Details to follow, but it’s on, Junkies!
November 2 – 4: Scott is a featured guest at CONvolution in San Fran/Burlingame.
November and December: are currently heavily weighted for writing time, as you’ve seen these last two month of this year. While there will be three Sigler publications in 2012 (NOCTURNAL, BONES ARE WHITE and THE MVP) Scott is also slated to complete PANDEMIC before the year is out.
That’s what the year ahead looks like for us at the moment. What big things are brewing for y’all?
