God Made Me Special

I expect it could be seen as kind of gauche to point it out (not that I ordinarily let fear of gaucheness get in the way of a good time.) But I believe this is my first ever "staff pick" blurb, from the Secret Garden Bookshop in Seattle. Wow, thanks.

In other King Dork news, I had a chat with the Listening Library folks and it appears that the audio version is pretty much all done, save some final QA editing. They're going to include all five songs and an interview. Contrary to previous estimates, the whole program ended up being over twelve hours. (It turns out there is a formula for this: 9,500 words usually equals approximately an hour. Why the miscalculation? Well, my book is quite long for a YA novel and math is hard. Anyhow, there it is.)

Also, there is some discussion of putting up some of the songs on the web in some form in advance of the release date, perhaps on Amazon and maybe on iTunes as well. More on that as and if it becomes clearer.

oooohhhh, putting the tracks up at iTunes or somesuch would be wonderful, as i don't fancy myself an audio book person but was considering taking the plunge just for the songs. i'll take my paperback plus downloads, pretty please.
