Just a little bit of patience. Yeahhhh.
Minus the whistle solo, Guns 'n Roses had it right. I just needed to wait a bit before seeing Blood Blade on the shelves. Well, I had to wait and some of you out there didn't. I got a few reports from far and wide that my book was located and even purchased. Thanks to everyone for not only giving Skinners a read, but also letting me know it was out there on the shelves while I pestered hapless clerks.
Now, I'll need to know if anyone sees it on a New Release tower at Barnes & Noble. That's uncharted territory for me, even counting the two western series written under another name. I've been on the New Release table at Borders, which is very cool, but have never shown up on those four-sided beauties you find at Barnes & Noble. Well. . .I did see Blood Blade on one of those towers, but it doesn't really count because I swung by and put it there myself. A hollow victory, but still kind of cool.
In other news, Hell's Kitchen starts tonight. The Resident Evil 5 demo has been downloaded to my XBox 360. Fringe still kicks ass and the McRib is back again. A very good week, indeed!
