In the few short weeks that "Crawl" has been available, copies of it have already traveled the world. I fully expected to saturate every corner of Pennsylvania with the book because it's my homebase and that's where I know the most people. And, let's face it, people are still the ones reading books...at least until our alien overlords arrive. I will gladly sell "Crawl" to them too and autograph it in whatever language they choose...
Due to the magical powers of the interwebs (and some awesome networking hookups from a friend of mine), "Crawl" has already traveled further than I have. Yes, it's crept its way into the neighboring states of West Virginia, New Jersey and New York. Why, it's even gone from the suburbs of Boston to the sandy shores of Florida to the poolside patios of Las Vegas. What's truly amazing to me is that "Crawl" has gone international. And not just the copy I'll be sending to a reader in the UK (which is awesome!) but the TROPICAL kind of international. I present for your viewing pleasure and jealousy: "'Crawl' in Cancun"
How gorgeous is that? The way the sunlight is swallowed by the darkness? The way the skull takes on the color of the sand? Yeah, I'm talking about my book cover but I guess the beach is nice too. And no, that's not my dainty little hand holding the book. Sadly I did not get to accompany this particular copy on vacation thankyouverymuch to a friend who will remain nameless!
I swear, a guy works his fingers to the bone to write a good book and before you know it, the thing runs off to Mexico with some hottie while I'm stuck here! I'll remember that the next time.
