THE STARTER hits Sept. 2010

  • Profile photo of Joseph Cartwright

    love football, never really got into the whole draft pick …. so I’m wondering people are going to be let into the center to view the draft pick at 2:45. what time will the pre-order gates be opened?

    Sigler,
    Do original junkies get first go at buying this new book??

    That would stop the prirate brigade highjacking a book to print and sell on…

    Bottom line is I’m doing all the shipping and warehousing, so I have to play it by ear if we go higher than 3,000 copies. If I pre-order out 3,000 copies before September, we’ll have to look at increasing the run, but I highly doubt we’ll get that high. This is only from my website, it won’t be in stores and I’m not even sure if I can put it on Amazon marketplace.

    but some of the extreanious stuff is taken out

    like when Pine is teaching Barnes to take a snap from a Ki.  In the podcast, Coach says "If football 101 is over, can we run the damn play"

    in the app, coach says "can we just run the play?"

    oh, and "The Giant Lookie Rineman" when referring to Mumu-Kill-Owhee was corrected

     so it’s a win-win.

    Thank you, George Hrab, for composing and performing the acoustic version of brainsbodyboth. Humorous yet poignant, and you gave me a theme song. I miss Ally <sigh>

    I still have the rest of Nocturnal and Earthcore to listen to. I’m pysched for the Starter Scott. Whenever it comes out will be like "my birthday and Christmas on the same day!

    There will be plenty of shit to inject into your veins, don’t you worry. But, putting out hardcover novels yourself is a bitch-and-a-half. Can only manage one a year (plus, I haven’t even written it yet …)

    It’s funny that Scott still includes the word Ass but changes F*ck to Shuck.  What the Shuck!!!!!  I laugh every time I see it!!!  I figured he would have changed it to "What the hell" or something like that.

    Kind of seems the direction you’re going with the fancy color plates and everything. Personally, I’d hate it if you went with multiple editions in various price tiers, but you could probably make more money that way. Have some of the 3,000 be signed and numbered etc. etc.

    The comic industry is notorious for this type of crap and I’m sure you’ve seen DVDs doing the same shit. Hell, even Windows does it to a small degree. Don’t you love the business end of things, Scott?

     Yes, there will probably be a market for more than 3000. But the more you print, the less collectors will want multiple copies. And there’s nothing saying a paperback wouldn’t be printed at some future date.

    Don’t know how far in advance you would want to set up preordering but I would snag my 3 copies tomorrow to make sure I got them.I’m sure a venture like this can scare you more than a nocturnal eating you nads first but I have a feeling 3000 wont be enough

    Profile photo of Mark Wheeler

    To get my hands on a copy! or 3… lol But i almost feel that some of the pictures might take something away from the experience. I maintain that alot of what made the podcast so great was getting to visualize all the differen alien species in action. Hmm, although i suppose finally getting to see all of the charecters that i saw in my head on the actuall printed page will be pretty great too!

    So I presume the self published edition of the Rookie will be that edition. My guess that the Starter would be youth friendly as well. It’s not like he was planning on changing any content from the Rookie, just BSGing some of the language.

     Everything he’s said has told us that Crown has zero interest in that franchise.

    I’m up for some football violence…embossed cover, colour plates and extra content. What does this mean for the under 18 version? Is that project dead?

    I don’t think 3000 will be a problem, Scott. Although perhaps there will not be enough. Even so, I understand your pause to do any more. You are one good … evil bad FDO.

    It’ll suck waiting a little more than a year and a half, but the payoff will be totally worth it.

    Will we see a countdown timer on the site anywhere?

    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.
