Transubstantiate, the debut novel by Richard Thomas
RICHARD THOMAS SIGNS WITH OTHERWORLD PUBLICATIONS
I can talk about it now. My debut novel, a neo-noir thriller called Transubstantiate, will be out in June of this year. I'm really excited that OWP wanted to launch their company on the back of my book. They are a husband and wife team, very smart, connected, and energetic. They love my book and are behind it 100%. It's a risk I know, new small press, but I'm optimistic and pumped up.
There will be 100 signed/limited hardcovers, as well as a much larger print run of paperbacks. I'll be talking about this everywhere, so I apologize in advance for the constant whoring of myself and this book all over the internet.
This group here, you have always been supportive of my work, and I owe my career to people like Craig Clevenger and Stephen Graham Jones who got me excited about my work again. The Write Club, here, The Velvet - so many really cool people who are constantly getting behind emerging artists. Do whatever you can, and don't worry, I'll come begging when it releases. I'll be hitting you all up for not only your hard earned cash, but for help promoting it on your blogs, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, book clubs, other forums, whatever you've got.
I think this is a really great book. It won't change the world or cure cancer, but I think it's a fun book, wild and sexy, fast paced and interesting. You'll get action, violence, sex, a bit of the surreal, the horrific, the fantastic, and the gritty noir that I've loved reading from the trio here.
Thanks again, and wish me luck.
