As you may know, my next novel, Memoirs of an Imaginary Fiend, has already been released in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and even places like Dubai and Singapore. Anywhere that my British publisher, Little Brown UK. might ship books.
In the US, however, the book doesn’t publish until August.
Unwilling to wait for the August release, several of my friends have decided to purchase the UK edition of the book, despite the additional cost of shipping from overseas, and despite their assurances that they intend to purchase the US edition as well.
I find these decisions quite humbling.
Tonight, one of my friends received his overseas shipment and sent me this photograph.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am for the friends that I have in my life.
