Nick DiChario website

The next book under my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint for Red Deer Press is A Small and Remarkable Life, by Hugo, Campbell, and World Fantasy Award-finalist Nick DiChario. Check out Nick's spiffy new website for all the details.

Is there by any chance a billboard ad campaign for the book? I recognize the cover photo from an unattributed sign that recently went up in my hometown -- Ann Arbor, MI. If so, it's been sparking curiosity; the newspaper recently ran an article wondering about it.

Hi, Jen. Interesting! The blue man is a stock photo we purchased a license to from an agency; I'm not surprised it's being used elsewhere. Our wonderful art director, Karen Petherick, found it, and it's perfect for Nick's book.

Ah well ... I guess I'm not surprised the billboard is for a different purpose, since random ad campaigns for cool-sounding small-press books are pretty rare. It would have been cool, though.

The photo is striking, and I can't wait to read the book. Thank you for calling attention to it, and for choosing to publish it in the first place.
