I: Print Edition Cover Final


I meant to post this earlier, but have been quite busy getting ready for the launch of "I" next Wednesday. This is the final "grunged-up" layout for the print edition cover, as opposed to the "clean" version posted earlier.

The image is intended to depict the "Brotherhood of Men" mural painted on the walls of the Hall of Justice by the Home of Artists, a propaganda wing of the City Council. As such, I felt the shapeless, faceless "men's room" emblem was the ideal choice to represent the mindless mass of automatons that populate the City of Ayn Rand's Anthem. "I" is the story of their liberation.

The first shipment of print editions arrived this week:


These will mainly be used as review copies and giveaways on Goodreads and LibraryThing for promotion purposes. If you would like to receive a review copy you can contact me through the link above. It is highly recommended, though not required, that you have read Anthem first. Review copies will be distributed at my sole discretion.

The print edition of "I" is distributed through Ingram, and therefore is available to order at any bookstore. It runs 251 pages (266 with front and back matter), at just around 122,000 words. Suggested retail is $12.95.

ISBN: 978-0-9821538-8-8
ASIN: B06XZC2GH7251 pages
$7.95

Release Date: May 31, 2017

Available for pre-order today in Kindle format on Amazon. Print edition pre-orders forthcoming.

Stay tuned for additional content to be posted on my website, including an exclusive "Annotated Anthem" as a free download in the coming weeks.

Note also that the cover art has now been finalized. Print edition jacket art will be posted when the print pre-order page is live (this will take some weeks, as I go through Lightning Source for print on demand, and their process is somewhat cumbersome).

There will also be a free Matchbook bundle so that those who purchase the print edition will also get the ebook free.

There may also be an ePub edition at some point, but for now it will be exclusive to Amazon. This enrolls it in Kindle Unlimited, so those of you who subscribe or have Prime will be able to borrow it after its release.
