T-Minus Very Little and Counting...

Bennett R. Coles | June 23, 2015

It's nearly launch time! After eighteen months of self-imposed exile from the public, Virtues of War is being relaunched through Titan Books, bigger and better.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited. And nervous. I've done two book launches as an author before, but never at the scale of this one. In a sense it's very much like a rocket launch - everyone in the team has done their job well, and every preparation has been taken, but all we can do now is watch and wait. If everything works it will be spectacular: if everything goes wrong it will be over with swift brutality. The book is on final countdown for launch in the UK on June 27th, and in North America on June 30th. My dear friends in the Antipodes will have to wait until August.

For me, these next few days are going to be like the week before Christmas, as I try to think about anything besides the launch but quietly countdown the sleeps. I wish I could write something witty and profound to express my feelings, but all I can come up with is:

"Blaaaaahhhhh! I wish it was next Tuesday already!!!!"

So there you are, words from the deepest depths of an author's heart.

We are GO for launch. Commencing countdown.
