...mind blowing awesome...

That's phenomenal! CONGRATS!

Yay, congrats! Now I have to read your book that I bought last year.....that's a whole seperate pile.

Oddly enough, I just came across the email trichy sent me back in March of 2011 with the copy of his manuscript. I don't think I ever even got around to downloading it, had some computer issues at the time if I recall... Congratulations though! Can't say I'm not jealous, but then, I've yet to finish any of the novels I've been working on (haven't written a stitch in MONTHS in fact =/). May have to hit you up for some tips if I ever get to the stage where I can publish one of my bits!

Grats, love your book and can't wait to read the next 2! I'd also like to hear the process of how Random House made the decision.

Also, make sure you tell them you want the kindle version to be LESS then a physical copy!

Augh, terrible terrible news.

Congratulations, that's absolutely amazing news!

Awesome trichy, congrats! I can't wait to read the next two!

DUDE! AMAZING!

Great job =)

So, when I come to visit in March...I'm going to have to be dealing with paparazzi and stalker fans now? Great.

Seriously though, congratulations--that's flippin' amazing.

So, does that mean you're now open to a three picture deal too?

Congrats!

Wow! Fantastic news!
Too bad you will need to deal with all the fans. Look what it did to Bieber.
Poor Bieber.

Congrats, Trichy!

You know, this is great and I'm happy for you and all that but WHERE'S THE SECOND GODDAMNED BOOK, TRICHY?

Way to go!

mother f*cking trichy. Comes on here like he ain't got better sh*t to do, like I don't know, WRITE HIS DAMN BOOK ALREADY?! It's not like his fans haven't paid him ph4t l3wts for him to get cracking on his next book. But instead of doing what we PAID him to do, he's on here chit-chatting, and helping build computers for someone who won't even HELP FINISH THE NEXT BOOK.

Also, have you seen him lately? He looks old and unhealthy and he's going to die before the next book is out. All I can say is he better not watch any sports, play any games, do any traveling, or engage in any other hobbies or means of making money until the next book is done.

Trichy is my bitch.

ALL OF WHAT HEDGEWIZARD SAID IS TRUE!

Spoiler:

I refuse to click on that link. Refuse. Because George R. R. Martin is so totally my bitch.

Thanks for all the awesome words. The only downside is that the release date for book 2 is now out of my hands. They do want to see it out before the end of the year, so there is at least some deadline.

I will keep everyone up to date as I get more news, but thanks for all the ridiculous support that this community has given me. It's nothing shy of amazing.

Double post because it's still pretty awesome.

THOSE DIRTBAGS! Can't wait :). Good luck, dude!

I have a copy of the contract in my hot little hands. I meet with my agent and lawyer to sign on Monday. Only change is that it will be printed under Doubleday, which is apparently an imprint of Random House. Also, the rights for 72 Hours are going to be a seperate contract, which is still being tweaked.

Here's hoping you are able to keep them!
