On April 15th, 2011, I wrote the first words of Denton Little’s Deathdate. Nervous and excited, I sent those words to my wife Katie. Above is a screenshot of the email in which I pasted what I had. As you can see, it was in the third-person at first. That changed the next week.
Now, almost exactly four years later, Denton Little’s Deathdate is coming out in stores, and I have no words.
Thank you to everyone who’s been so supportive during this journey. You know who you are, and it’s meant everything to me. And thank you to the booksellers, librarians, and bloggers who have already been championing this book; your support takes my breath away.
And to everyone out there buying the book today and talking it up on the internet and generally being awesome: thank you. You’re great.
