Early FIXER feedback

Long road to release

I have to be honest, I’m not the most patient person in the world when it comes to book releases.  This may be a surprising thing to hear from someone who held onto to three finished novels for between six and eight years, but it’s a different experience, temperamentally, between keeping a book in your back pocket, and having it ready to go with a publication date and everything.

Fixer is very much ready.  It’s been edited to within an inch of my life and the collective lives of the editing team, and it has a lovely cover, so all that’s left is for it to roll out.

In March.

What’s waiting

The reason the book isn’t already out is that media need time to hear about it, get a copy of it, and prepare a review for it.  So while to you or I might not be seeing anything happening, right now there are people reading about it on NetGalley, bloggers getting emails and a larger P.R. machine warming up the engines.  All of which means every now and then a review of a book you can’t buy yet will roll out, leading up to what should be a much larger number of reviews and/or a blog tour coinciding with the March release.

First review

Which leads me to the first early review of Fixer, which popped up a few days ago on GoodReads.

Excerpt:

This book is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I don’t know what I can say about Corrigan Bain that won’t come out like a gushing, fan-girlie mess, but he is imperfectly perfect.

The entire review can be read here.  And if you have an account with GoodReads you can also add it to your to-read list.  Which of course you should.
