Subterranean Press has posted a new McCammon update:
As another step in celebrating the release of Robert McCammon’s newest Matthew Corbett historical thriller, The Providence Rider (SubPress|Amazon|BN.com), we’ve put the ebook of his demon spawn first novel, Baal, on sale for only $2.99. You can pick it up from the usual suspects (Amazon|BN.com). It looks as though Kobo is trailing behind in resetting the price, but I’m sure they’ll catch up soon.
Jumping back to The Providence Rider again, it’s now racked up 15 five star Amazon reviews, with no dissenters. We’re inordinately pleased at the response it’s received from reviewers and readers alike. This (literal, though eventually resolved) cliffhanger of a novel is the perfect place to join Matthew’s deadly game of chess with Professor Fell, the self-styled “Emperor of Crime”.
Finally, while he was in our offices inscribing copies of his new novel, Rick also set his hand to the signature pages for our upcoming signed, limited edition of his classic novel, Bethany’s Sin, which is right on schedule for release this fall.
We have a number of happenings regarding Robert McCammon’s new historical thriller, The Providence Rider, to highlight for you.
- The trade hardcover edition is done, and shipping to our large online and retail accounts.
- Rick will be in our warehouse from June 19-21 to sign/inscribe copies for customers. Those copies will ship immediately thereafter.
- The ebook edition (Amazon|BN.com|Kobo) is out in the wild, and available to order.
Rick’s new one is well on its way to being another success. Thanks to each and every one of you for making that possible.
Also now available, the ebook edition of Robert McCammon’s 1980 novel, Bethany’s Sin.
The Signed, Limited Edition of Bethany’s Sin, one of Robert McCammon’s early novels, is on schedule to be released this fall. In the meantime, the ebook is already out there in the wild (Amazon|BN.com|Kobo).
