First of all, I am so, so pleased to share the German cover of NOT A DROP TO DRINK with you. So often authors see their foreign covers and think, "What?" My German cover is a beautiful re-imagining of the US version, which I think says a lot about the versatility and aptness of the original design. The re-titling BIS ZUM LETZTEN TROPFEN translates as "To The Last Drop." It will be published by Verlag Heyne in Germany on August 11.
August 26th the paperback of NOT A DROP TO DRINK will be available in the US. It will have bonus content. I can't go into too much detail, but for everyone who would like to learn a little more about Mother and how the world of DRINK came to be in the condition it is in the opening pages... well, you might be interested in the paperback.
And if you're thinking you want a hardcover, but you're holding out for a signed one, you might want to check out Brenda Novak's auction as items come to an end here at the closing of the month. Myself and six other Class of 2k13 members have a signed book package (with a tote!) up for auction. If this is your bag (see what I did there?) drop in and bid.
Some of you are sitting there thinking, Mindy, I could give less of a crap about DRINK written in a language I can't read, or buying it in paperback or bidding on it at auction when all I want is IN A HANDFUL OF DUST and I want it right now.
Well guess what, you might just get your wish. There's a giveaway on Goodreads at the moment for 10 ARCs of DUST, the companion novel to NOT A DROP TO DRINK.
And, in case you still want to read more stuff I wrote (I hope you do, at any rate), there is also a Goodreads giveaway for Winter's Regret: What Might Have Been, an anthology of short stories from Elephant's Bookshelf Press, which includes a short from yours truly.
In the meantime, I'm cracking out the pages for my next book, which will be coming to you from Katherine Tegen books in the Fall of 2015. What's it about? Nothing pleasant.
