Because the stars lined up for publishing THE ROOKIE at the kickoff of the 2009–2010 NFL season, I will release THE STARTER exactly one year later, for the kickoff of the 2010–2011 season. Quentin Barnes & Co. try their hand at Tier One. It won't be pretty.
Hardcover and podcast will be released at the same time, as I did with CONTAGIOUS. This depends, of course, on me making a profit with THE ROOKIE. Publishing 3,000 copies of hardcover on your own is no small matter. It's a big business risk, but I have faith the Junkies want these beautiful books with ebmossed covers, color plates inside showing aliens, uniforms and logos, extra content, etc.
