Dianne Salerni : Writer of Teen and Middle Grade Fiction | Nine Months to Go

Nine Months to Go

A listing for The Caged Graves went up on Amazon at the beginning of this month.  The release date is set for May 14, 2013.  That’s nine months from now.
It seems like a long wait.  I could have a baby in that amount of time.  In fact, that might be a good way to pass the time!

(Ha, ha, just kidding. I want to give my husband a jolt when he reads this!)

There’s no cover image yet (amended: Yes there is!) but the listing contains a really awesome book description and an excerpt from the prologue. Yup. My book has a prologue, so don’t let anyone tell you they’re completely off the table.
The galley pages are in my hands for proof-reading, and last month I received the cover copy for approval – the text on the back cover and the jacket sleeves. I was ridiculously excited.  
Anyway, I’ve got my proof-reading to do and nine months to wait. What to do … what to do … what to do …

  1. Have the baby. Just kidding! LOL. Write another book would probably be a better way to go. You’re husband won’t freak out over that. 🙂

    What a beautiful cover page, Dianne! It’s very intricate. So happy to learn your release date–just think: by then, you’ll be almost finished with the school year!

    I see a cover image on the Amazon link–a really great one, too!

    The book description and the excerpt are awesome! I can’t wait to read it.

    P.S. I hope you didn’t give your husband a heart attack.


  5. Congrats, Dianne. Added it to my wishlist. I already have a copy of We Hear the Dead enroute to my mailbox; can’t wait to read it. 🙂

    Nine months will go by faster than you think! I still have 1 year, 2 months and 4 days….but it’s not like I’m counting down or anything…!

    Sweet! That is so awesome! The time will fly!

  12. Remember the old kiddie song about the bear who climbed over the mountain… to see what he could see? (He saw another mountain, which he climbed… to see what he could see, on and on ad nauseum.) Anyhow, that’s what YOU do! Not climb another mountain… write another book! Silly.

    “The Caged Graves” looks amazing!
