British Invasion? Ha

It's been nearly fifty years since our friends from across the pond started their pop art invasion of the United States. The Beatles, the Stones, etc., have all had their day, many days in fact, to shine. Well my friends their time is over.

For too long have the Brits and the Irish dominated the arts. It's time we Yanks took the power back.

I'm not afraid to lead the charge. And so that's why I'm pleased to announce The Unearthed will be available in print in the UK. I've signed with Ghostwriter Publications, a small press specializing in horror. Ghostwriter will be doing a print run of The Unearthed, and we're also discussing an audio version as well.

We're still ironing out the timeline, but once I have some more information, I will let you know.

(DISCLAIMER: Most of my favorite authors and actors are British and Irish.)

Man thats terrific news. You havent made it until someone's reading your book in a snooty British interior voice.

Nathanael Green said...

That's great news, Brian. I can't wait to get my hands on a hard copy.

Phil,

Published, yes. Well-read? We've got quite a long ways to go till I can even say I have a "readership"...

By the way, couldn't agree with your call on Curt Schilling.

Phil -

meant to say "couldn't agree more" ;)

Adrian -

To think that Frederick Forsyth might just see it while he's in line at a supermarket is a thrill. I don't even care if he doesn't buy it, which he won't anyway.

Nater,
Thanks, man. One step closer to living the dream. And you know what I mean.

Nathanael Green said...

Oh I know what you mean.

You mean enjoying what's best in life - to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentation of the women.

Brian O'Rourke said...

Nate,

That is what's best in life, for sure.

Either that, or seeing another Conan movie made so I can erase the memory of Conan The Destroyer from my mind.

Brian O'Rourke said...

Marco -

A good omen indeed. Thanks, man.

Rita Vetere said...

Hey, Brian,

Huge congrats, buddy! I'm so excited for you. You will let us know how we can get our hands on the print book, right?

Rita

Brian O'Rourke said...

Rita -

Thanks for that. I will be sure to let everyone know about when it'll be available, once I have the details.

When does Cambion hit the shelves?

Rita Vetere said...

Hey, Brian,

Hope you sell a million!

Cambion has a new title. It's releasing on June 15 in ebook under the title Born of Darkness, and I believe print release will be sometime in December, and thanks for asking.

Enjoy the day!

Brian O'Rourke said...

Rita,

Man, where is my head sometimes? Of course we've had a conversation about the new title of your book...sorry about that ;)

seanag said...

Late to the party, but this is fantastic!

Or, as my v word would have it, 'favesti!'

Brian O'Rourke said...

Hey Seana,
Thanks! I've been meaning to ask too--where do you get these v-words from?
