What do you plan to do about it?
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Well there isn't much I can do really.  I was simply stating the fact that I'm extremely excited for it to come out.

Those of us who live near Dan could try to do something about it, but my sources tell me authors generally write poorly with a gun to their head. Something about stress. I wasn't really paying attention.

Seriously, though, can't wait for the next book....and I'm not a serial killer, Dan. I swear it.
I like basketball, hanging out with my friends, reading, slamming a garbage can into a pimp or two with magical heavenly powers. You know, teenager stuff.

So guess what I came across yesterday?

http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9780755348824/Mr.-Monster

 :o  Oh yeah!  And free shipping to boot!  Of course, Dan can't be making much money off of this sale.

So, if you take this deal, make sure to buy his books when they come out in hardback as well.  He deserves every penny.

Preordered :)

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that I've just bought a book that is being shipped from England that costs less than what I would pay for it here in the United States?

The release schedule has been sped up? Does this mean I get to enjoy I Am Not a Serial Killer before March?

No, it means the books will be released every 6 months instead of once per year.

So you can enjoy Mr. Monster sooner, but I Am Not a Serial Killer will continue to elude you until the end of March.

Well I'm glad I get the whole story faster, at least. I've had these books on my radar for a while now... it will be good to have them on my shelf sooner than later!

WARNING PEOPLES!

I had someone from the Fraud Department of my credit card company call me yesterday, and they told me that they'd seen some unauthorized purchases to my account.  This happened within a week of me making my purchase to Book Depository.  This fraud attempt happened too close to my only overseas internet purchase in well over a year for me to not see some kind of possible connection.  Not trying to freak people out.  I'm just saying that if you made any purchases to BookDepository recently (such as the one that I made for Dan's new book) you might want to watch your credit card account for the next bit or so.  The charges that came to my account were:  3 to iTunes for $1.13, and 1 to AppleME for $1.00  (apparently AppleME is an Apple store that services the Middle East).  Again, this is all circumstantial, but man I'd just suggest being safe rather than sorry if your credit card company isn't as on top of things as mine is.  I feel really lucky at this point.

I've already contacted BookDepository with my concerns so that they can look around.  This is the second time that I've used their company.  I didn't have any problems the first time, and don't have any complaints against their service.  This is just scary though.

I mention this here only because I was the one that posted the link to BookDepository for Dan's new book.
