Thank you to everyone who helped make Matt’s launch a terrific success! It was a thrilling week all around and we’re looking forward to hearing from all our investors as the books start to arrive in mailboxes. Speaking of which, the books will ship out mid to late-November—just as soon as they’re all signed. The thank you notes will arrive separately and soon after; they’ll be coming from Matt in Boston and the books will be coming from me in California, so keep an eye out for your postman not once, but twice.
If you missed the launch or else if you are a Matt superfan, the e-book version for Kindle, iPad and Nook will be released in a few weeks, so stay tuned. In the meantime, Matt will be having his release party at Newtonville Books in Boston on November 16th at 7PM. The very next evening he will be fighting the good fight at Literary Death Match at what appears to be a very cool club. That’s November 17th at 7PM as well. Come shake the man’s hand and enjoy all the awesomeness that LDM has to offer.
Thanks again for all your support so far. More news of the best variety coming very soon.
