So, quite a bit of book news to share this week. First of all, my debut book has a new title! The book formerly known as CHASERS is now known as:
WITH OR WITHOUT YOU
I dig it. Well, I should. I suggested it. And the best part of the name change? The initials: WOWY!
With the new title comes a slightly new cover (man, I love my cover):
And if all these changes weren’t quite enough, the release date has also changed. Look for WITH OR WITHOUT YOU nearly two months earlier, on May 24, 2011. Yes, that’s right: the day before Towel Day! Or maybe Towel Day Eve. It will be all the more important to be a hoopy frood who knows exactly where your towel–and copy of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU–are. *
And I’m thrilled that Jason Myers, author of the fabulous EXIT HERE (and the forthcoming DEAD END), gave me the following blurb: “A near perfect book for the times as Brian Farrey has provided the entire LGBT community, especially it’s teens, an important novel that’s as unnerving as it is page turning. A tough task to do and Farrey pulls it off with ferociousness and grace.”
Moving up the release date means I’m doing my headless chicken routine to prepare for book promotion on a slightly accelerated schedule. Stay tuned for news of a blog tour, contests, and other nifty events. Go-Go-Gadget Book Launch!
*=Just to be clear: WITH OR WITHOUT YOU has nothing to do with THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. Absolutely nothing. I’m just excited that my book is coming out so close to something associated with one of my favorite books of all time.
