Bad news: As you've probably noticed, Chains wasn't out on Christmas Eve. But I will do my best to have a January release date.
Good news: Want Me has been picked up by Loose Id! That means it'll be out in e-book format soon. How cool is that? The only thing that bums me out is that I had to take down the awesome cover art from the first edition, which had been created for me by the amazing Ulf. On the bright side, I'm looking forward to seeing the new interpretation from Loose Id.
To give the first cover a proper send-off, I'm giving away all the Want Me prints I have left. They include two 4x6 glossies, four 8.5x11 prints on card stock, five 3x5 prints on card stock, and one…well I don't know what it is exactly. It's translucent and has a sticker strip on the left-hand side, so I'm guessing it's meant to be slipped inside notebooks or folders. I don't even remember buying it. XD
If you'd like one of these prints, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (mcbride_rowan at yahoo dot com) with "I want a Want Me print" in the subject line. Please list the four items above, with the one you want most at the top and so on. First-come-first-serve, but I'll do my best to send you the print you like most. Don't forget to include your snail mail address.
And now for some more good news!

I'm stoked. Are you stoked? I'm totally stoked. :D
