Novel.

It's Sunday. God's not watching. I know this, and when you read the next line, so will you:

"Ben Peek has sold to Sean Wallace at Prime Books his first novel, Black Sheep, with a hardcover and paperback release scheduled for early 2006."

Ben, that is utterly fantastic. That is a book that deserves reading. Power to you.

Re: Kyla needs a live journal account
you should just set yourself up one so you can leave comments. there's a bunch of them around.

and thanks. the book would've been lesser without the feedback you and deb provided.

Ben, that's great news! Well done, more of the same if you please.
benpeek

thanks, man.

i'm hoping for more. i'm working on a novel now, after all, so it'd be nice to sell that. and again, afterwards. but i'm in no rush. it's a long, twisting road, from what i understand.

Well bugger me. I take a few weeks off LJ and look what happens!

Massive congrats. Now, if you're anything like the rest of us what you'll do is wait for the covers to be printed and then tape them to an existing book/block of styrofoam/whatever in order to get a feel for the physical object :)

I'm so happy for you. You've a fantastic ride ahead :)

Prime make lovely looking books, btw.
benpeek
Mar. 1st, 2005 06:17 am (UTC)
yeah, i knew you weren't round. i thought, i'll sneak it in while he isn't looking ;)

i didn't think about those blocks bit. hmm. i'm seeing your point. i could put them over existing books! well, i guess time will show. thanks for the nice words, too. i'm looking forward to it. hell, it might even help me land some teaching gigs once the thesis is all finished...

if there's a downside, everyone can just keep it to themself :)
