Release Day at Last: Liar’s Harvest

by Michael Langlois

At long last, Liar’s Harvest is out the door and on sale!   Huzzah!

I had a lot of fun writing this one and I feel like I learned a lot along the way.  Which is as it should be.  But!  I have a confession to make.  These book launches scare me to death.  I keep thinking that next time I’ll be a jaded veteran with my feet up, smoking a cigar and heaving world-weary sighs as my latest novel sails out into the world.  Turns out, not so much.

Fortunately, I had a lot of help along the way, which makes me feel like at least those parts of the book are under control 🙂

I’d like to thank Vincent Chong for yet another stellar cover.  Fun fact, we actually did this cover twice.  The first one was good, without a doubt, but I felt like it needed some kind of small tweak to make it stand out a little more.  So I asked Vinny for advice, and his thoughts.  He came back with a completely redesigned cover, which was a heck of a lot more work than a tweak, and brilliant.  Thanks, Vinny.

I’d also like to thank my editor, Neal Hock, and my copy editor, Cory Whiteland.  It’s kind of humbling to send out what you consider to be a pretty clean copy and get back a thoughtful, concise list of your errors.  Your many, many errors.  If this book is readable at all, then you have these gentlemen to thank for it.

I also want to express my sincere appreciation to Jennifer at 52novels.com for the fantastic formatting.  She put up with multiple revisions, crazy chapter heading formatting requests, and all sorts of deadline shenanigans with the kind of patience and good humor that I will never, ever possess.

Finally, I want to thank my wife, Susie, for her tireless support and enthusiasm for my work.  None of this would have been possible without her.

Likewise, all of you folks.  Thanks for sticking with me.
