Awesome Feedback for Dan!
« on: March 31, 2009, 04:08:49 PM »
Giddyup! Check it out:

"This dazzling, unput-downable debut novel proves beyond a doubt that Dan Wells has the gift.  His teenage protagonist is as chilling as he is endearing.  More John Wayne Cleaver, please." -- F. Paul Wilson

This quote, by this author, is freaking amazing.

Yes it is. I'm way flattered. 

For those who don't know, that's a probably-final form of a a cover quote Paul gave us for the US version of the book. Believe me when I say that I'm not just way flattered, I'm way flattered to the max.

When does I Am Not A Serial Killer come out in the U.S.?  I asked if it was out the other day while I was at the bookstore, because I was going to buy it, but they said it wasn't even in their system. ha ha.

It will not be in the US until sometime next Spring, but you can order it online from www.bookdepository.co.uk, which ships for free anywhere in the world.

Coolness.  I just ordered it. :]  Are you going to be at the Warbreaker release?  I'm assuming you won't be doing any signings 'til next spring when it comes out here.

I don't think I'll make it to the signing, since I'm going out of town for the Stoker Awards Conference at about the same time. I' will be at CONduit, however, so if you're local and need a signature I should be easy to find.

Well I finally went out and bought it and I that's me just finished reading it.  I read the whole thing in just under 6 hours.  All I can say is WOW I loved it.  It's not my usual style but couldn't resist checking it out after reading about it.  Definitely glad I did, I couldn't put it down.  I can't wait to read book 2.

In a world gone mad escape into fantasy.

Dan, just wanted to let you know that I just finished the book.  It was quite delightful.  I loved it.  Every time I thought I had something figured out, it twisted and went a different direction.  I love books that keep me guessing.  I've always been an extremely people person, so seeing the inside of John's head was extremely amazing.  You did very very well with this novel and I can't wait to read more of your stuff as it comes out.

I'd give it probably a 5.5/6.  The half point is for the fact that many of the other characters weren't quite as developed as I wanted them to be.  I really wanted to get to know them, and we did get to know a couple, but then again I guess that's probably due to the first person being John.  *shrugs* Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
