Hi all! Some of you may remember that I announced a book deal last year. Well, things are moving along pretty well and I thought I'd stop by and update y'all on the status.
The book's title has been changed to THE INVISIBLE ORIENTATION: An Introduction to Asexuality
It will come out September 2, 2014 from Skyhorse Publishing/Carrel Books.
Right now only the hardcover is available for preorder. An ebook is supposed to be released at the same time, though.
Here are the links to purchase or add to a list:Buy or Add:
] [Barnes & Noble
] [Book Depository
Please note that the UK version of Book Depository also has the book listed
. I'm told they ship worldwide.
Here is the current cover--it may not be final.
If you're interested to know more about what the book covers, the Amazon entry's description explains it pretty well, but you can either read about it on its page on my professional author site
OR watch this video
on YouTube where I go over the planned chapters and what they address!
The book does not currently have a paperback or audio version planned, nor does it have any translations planned, but this is just the first release. My contract with the publisher does mention the terms for audio versions and translation/foreign rights, so there is groundwork laid if the demand for the book suggests it will be worth the publisher's while to create those options. When it first comes out, the best thing those of you who can't/don't want to buy it for yourself can do to help is to make sure your library gets it! I'm not much of a salesperson and have no intention of hounding my community to throw money at it, but I do want it to do well enough that it will stay in print and hit the numbers needed for a paperback version and trade distribution, so every bit of word-spreading will help!
As release approaches there may be some giveaways and contests so I will be sure to post them here for anyone who would be interested in that. :)
Can't wait to bring info about asexuality into another mainstream demographic. Thank you for your support!
