God of the Hive, day one
Today is publication day for The God of the Hive. More than a year of labor from a lot of people, beginning with the author and going through a dozen departments in Random House, branching through a whole bunch of fabulous and committed volunteers who just love the books, the source of worry and the result of long consultations, legal contracts, business agreements, artistic considerations, excitement and anticipation and pleasure. And now we’re here, the book is on the shelf, and it all boils down to one question: Will people buy it?
This is a book I love and am proud of. I hope you like it, too. I hope you help me celebrate its birth-day.
And to illustrate how the book world works so long in the future, you can now read an interview about my next story, here.
