Purchase details re: Patricia Briggs and JR Ward

Last week, we saw some previews of the comic book that Dabel Brothers is doing of Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. Only when people went to pre-order the comic book, the purchase link was elusive.

Here are some details straight from the Briggs website:

You can download a preview of the first graphic novel in .pdf format. While it’s missing the text, it certainly shows the quality of the artwork and layout. The Dables have produced a press release giving more details about the series. To order the series, contact your local comic book store, or use this handy order form.

Ever the demanding person, I lamented that I thought I could just go into any bookstore and find the comic book because I didn’t know where the nearest comic bookstore was and was too lazy to click on the link to find out. So for those lazy people, you can wait until 2009 when Del Rey, in partnership with Dabel Brothers, will put out a Graphic novels (hardcover with dust jacket). The first one will be the four issue series Homecoming/the original short story Briggs penned.

Second topic is the JR Ward novella, Father Mine, which is a short story of Zsadist and Bella included in the trade paperback Black Daggerhood: An Insider’s Guide. The press release announcing Penguin’s eSpecials, such as the JR Ward novella, was released on Tuesday but readers were having a difficult time finding the buy link for it. As of today, I only have two buy links:

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Yup, I’m waiting for it to come out in hardcover through Del Rey. I bought the Dresden Files GN through pre-order which should be coming out next week. I’m curious to see how it turns out.
