THIS WEEKEND, Borders.com invited me to be their Guest Author Blogger to talk about Siren, since my 4th novel is being reissued this month in trade paperback format.
The mass market edition of the novel was released last summer, however the book got somewhat lost in the shuffle, since almost immediately after its release, my publisher, Leisure Books, axed its mass market line. The Barnes & Noble website even featured the book last December with the bittersweet praise of A Victim of History: How a Stellar Horror Novel (John Everson’s Siren) Came and Went Unnoticed.
As Leisure looked inward and worked to retool and reorganize its business, Siren quickly disappeared from stores last year. Since then, the book has sold well in e-book format, and also will soon be available in an audiobook edition.
But I’m stoked that actual print copies of SIREN will be back in stores next week, and it was a very cool thing to be able to write a blog for Borders. You can read my story of SIREN from Borders Blog reprinted here:
