Epoch is officially released next week, but already I have one glowing review from Canadian Review of Materials (CM)! Check this out!
I tell you, this brightened up my day like nobody's business. Completely blew away my disappointment over the rejection of Young Nostradamus. My editor didn't think the story had a very salable hook, not like Epoch had. Epoch had the end of the world as a comedy, whereas YN has a kid with the ability to predict the future - not half as catchy. He invited me to resubmit it in four months time, by which point the numbers for Epoch will have rolled in. If Epoch does well (which it will, say it with me!) then he will reconsider his decision on Young Nostradamus.
That means Epoch must be a hit. And with a review like the one linked above, it is on the right track.
It will be a hit. A big one. I can feel it!
