Fixer is coming
If you have been hanging around my blog for a little while you’ve already heard of Fixer, and possibly also read the preview chapter I posted almost exactly a year ago. (Note: the chapter has since been ransacked comprehensively by a large team of editors, but it is not substantially different.) Today I have three new things to share.
First, the tentative publication date, which is March 21, 2013.
This may seem like a long time to wait for a book that has been completely edited already, with a cover design in place and a publisher ready to roll it out, but there is PR to consider. In the next few weeks the campaign will launch to get Fixer in the hands of reviewers and other media, and people are going to need time to read it and prepare their reviews to roll out in time with the March release. So if you are not a reviewer, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait anxiously for the 21st to arrive. Much as I will be. (And if you are a reviewer, the ARC’s are pending, so drop me a note.)
You can take a nice long gander at the cover design to my right. And below is a draft of the book summary.

What would you do if you could see into the future?
As a child, he dreamed of being a superhero. Most people never get to realize their childhood dreams, but Corrigan Bain has come close. He is a fixer. His job is to prevent accidents—to see the future and “fix” things before people get hurt. But the ability to see into the future, however limited, isn’t always so simple. Sometimes not everyone can be saved.
“Don’t let them know you can see them.”
Graduate students from a local university are dying, and former lover and FBI agent Maggie Trent is the only person who believes their deaths aren’t as accidental as they appear. But the truth can only be found in something from Corrigan Bain’s past, and he’s not interested in sharing that past, not even with Maggie.
To stop the deaths, Corrigan will have to face up to some old horrors, confront the possibility that he may be going mad, and find a way to stop a killer no one can see.
Corrigan Bain is going insane . . . or is he?
Because there’s something in the future that doesn’t want to be seen. It isn’t human. It’s got a taste for mayhem. And it is very, very angry.
