It's Green day! My new novel from Tor is released today.

To celebrate, I'm having a virtual release party. There's a photo contest (see below), and I'll be shouting out the word "Green!" once an hour today all day long. Get in on the fun, make a Green post on your blog.

And you're all getting your copy today, right? Powell's | Amazon ]

Green by Jay Lake

Readings and signings: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

Green pre-reviewed — Hee. Thanks, Shawn!

"People of Leaf and Branch" — Short story live at Fantasy magazine. This ties in to Green.

I'm sending powerful energy and thinking "big sales, big sales, big sales."

It has such a great cover. I know that's not supposed to matter--but it does.

I'll get mine on Friday if J.C. is up for the trip. I'd like to give our money to Peter's store (smiles). He's such a good guy.

I just did a plug for the book over on my own journal--with a photo and synopsis. I don't think I get as much traffic as you . . . but it's a different traffic.

I don't know when I'll get my copy. But I'm not worried. I'm starting to read Escapement today.

Happy release day!

Green is in my saved shopping cart at Amazon, waiting for enough other books to join it that I can get free shipping...cause I'm cheap like that.

Happy release day, my friend!

You already know how I feel about this one, but I'll say it again, anyway: Green rocks!
