I am curious though how a book that doesn't come out for a month already has 17 reviews in Amazon. :shock:
:D :lol: :mrgreen:

Thank you, Ed!

My publisher's doing a big push for this book. They ran a couple of contests and more than a hundred people won advance review copies. So I guess I'm curious about why there aren't eighty-three more reviews on Amazon. ;)

Good point! Had I known I would have tried to win a copy and review it. Either way I'm excited for the book.

I've just reserved it at my library. I can't wait!

Well, I CAN wait. I mean, I have to ... so I'll just chill :)

The Yard goes on sale tomorrow, as I write this (which makes the sale date May 29th). It'll be at all major bookstores, including independents and, of course, is on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Yard-Alex-Grecian/dp/0399149546/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1338212701&sr=1-1

And Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/The-Yard-ebook/dp/B0073XV740/ref=sr_1_1_title_1_kin?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1338212731&sr=1-1

And here's yesterday's New York Times review: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/27/books/review/the-yard-by-alex-grecian-and-more.html?_r=1

There are no pictures in this book, but it has a pretty cover and a couple of fairly bloody chapters, if you're into that. Feel free to purchase a copy or Tweet about it or whatever it is you kids do. I appreciate your support. Also, I will be reading and signing in Kansas City, Phoenix, Houston and, I think, Chicago and New York. I will also be at both Comicon International and Tr!ckster in San Diego this July. If you can't come see me, I'll be making a couple of really cool signed bookplates available through my Web site (http://alexgrecian.com/) for free. You can paste 'em in the front of the book and pretend you met me and I was really cool. I'll let y'all know when I manage to get those set up there.

Thank you!

-Alex

I'll be at the book store first thing tomorrow to buy my copy!

I'm super stoked for you, Alex. Reception for the book seems to have been fantastic, and all of the reviews that I've read are definitely favourable.

Congrats. :D

I'll be looking out for those bookplates on your site - so keep us posted!

When I buy one will you put a sketch in Alex? Not sure I can read something without a single picture in it. :mrgreen:
