Fantastic Fiction was fantastic enough to email me and let me know, so I promptly scurried to Amazon to see if it was true.
And it is! Blood Wounds now has an official price ($16.99) and publication date (Sept. 12, 2011). No cover art yet (I've seen a preliminary sketch but that's it) and of course no ranking, since I'm the only person whow knows about it. Oh, and a tiny bit more plot than I would have cared for, but nobody asks me anything (at least not about how much plot I would like to have revealed in an Amazon listing).
I just counted and Sept. 12 is a little over 8 months away. That means it's less than 9 months from now! All I have to get through is a few more snowfalls and March misery and the glory that is spring and an excess of heat and humidity, and Blood Wounds will truly exist.
Hey. If I made it through the stomach virus, I can make it through that!
