New editions of FlashForward

My Aurora Award-winning novel FlashForward has been continuously in print from Tor Books, New York, since it was first published in 1999. However, this week two new editions of the book come out to tie-in with the ABC TV series of the same name, which debuts on Thursday, September 24, 2009. The new cover, incorporating the official series logo courtesy of ABC Entertainment, is above. The book is available in both mass-market (regular-sized) paperback and trade (large format) trade paperbback. Woohoo!

Success breeds success, doesn't it? You sold the idea for your book to a network...and now this book (and others) will really start to climb the charts. Have you publishers given you any indication of what they're expecting?

Not that I'm a pedantic bastard or anything (O.K., yes I am) but the show is already a hit before it even premiered?

Ryan, my publishers are expecting to have to pay me a lot more for my next book. ;)

Romeo, setting aside any discussion of your parentage, there are multiple ways to be a hit including being a critical hit and being a ratings hit. We are a bona fide critical hit already; all the major critics have already seen the pilot, and almost all of them love it. Here's just one example of the raves received to date. Seriously, the buzz here in Hollywood (where I am now) in the industry is gigantic; this is the show of the fall schedule.

Well, changing the cover to match is smart, for the tie-in.

But I have to admit, I thought the original book cover was pretty much perfect.

I'm looking forward to the show. I'll set my DVR and let you know what a non-critic, American viewer thinks.

I just finished reading the book. Really enjoyed it. It makes me think about my life, what is my destiny, if my dreams will be realized.
