Release Day at Last!

by Michael Langlois

It took a bit longer than I expected, but Bad Radio is finally up for sale!

It’s in the Kindle store on Amazon today, and should hit the Nook store tomorrow.  Paper is forthcoming, but will take a bit longer as the wraparound jacket art isn’t complete.

While I’m at the mic, I’d like to clutch a hankie and thank the following people for helping me get over the finish line:

Vincent Chong for the amazing cover art.  Odds are that if you like fantasy and sci-fi books, you have his art on your shelves right now.  Frankly, I was damn lucky to get on Vinny’s radar, and it’s only thanks to him that I can finally say I have something in common with Jim Butcher, China Miéville, and Ray Bradbury.  Check his site and marvel at his covers and many, many awards!

Scott Nicholson for his painstaking editing work and making me look good.  Scott is not only a fantastic and thoughtful editor, but an accomplished author as well.  As of this writing, one of his latest books, Ashes, holds the #1 spot in the Kindle store in the Horror/Ghosts category, and #7 overall in Horror outside of the Kindle store.  I can guarantee that any errors you find in this book are my fault, and had already been pointed out to me by Scott.  Twice.

Tina at for going above and beyond on the Kindle and ePub formatting.  I made some “perfectly reasonable” requests, and not only was Tina able to make everything come out better than I had expected, but she also worked through the weekend doing it.  She didn’t even call me any of the entirely accurate and well-deserved names that she could have!

And, of course, my wife Susie.  Also known as my first reader, line-editor, and the smiter-of-inappropriate-commas.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

Thanks, all.

EDIT: I totally forgot to mention Debbie Semple who created the way cool chapter graphic, which is one of my favorite things about the layout.  Sorry, Debbie!
