Week #5 in the Globe for the Demons!

It’s a super-crappy day here in Toronto, rainsleeting and depresso-skied, the kind of day when good news is especially welcome.  And then…

…the sun came out!  (Well, no, the sun didn’t actually come out.  But there was some good news).

The Demonologist is on The Globe and Mail’s Canadian fiction bestseller list for a 5th week!  You can’t rain on that parade.  (Well, you can, but it’ll still be a good parade).

THE DEMONOLOGIST On Sale in the U.K.!

Today is The Demonologist‘s publication day in Britain (and Ireland and Australia too) and I’m trying to figure out how to best mark the occasion. Hmmm…

Ah, who am I kidding?  Tonight, there will be beer followed by a viewing of the Evil Dead remake.

What Makes GONE GIRL Go?

If you’re among the dozen or so people who haven’t read Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl yet, you really should.  There hasn’t been a thriller with its kind of word-of-mouth popularity for quite a long while, and it’s all deserved.  It’s the kind of book that has “crossed over” so many sub-markets and sub-genres that it’s prompted a lot of discussion as to why.  What, exactly, makes Gone Girl go?

I’ve written a blog for my UK publisher, Orion, answering this very question.  You can check it out at the Murder Room…

The Demonologist on the Globe and Mail List for 4th Week!

Pleased as all heck to see The Demonologist on the Globe and Mail Canadian Fiction Bestseller List for a fourth straight week (and the #1 hardcover)!

And in other news, the zipper on my jeans just broke.  Coincidence?  Yeah.  Probably just coincidence.

Project Bookmark Canada

I’ve written a blog that’s up today supporting Project Bookmark Canada (link below).  It’s an initiative that my dad would support (you’ll have to read the blog to understand why), I support (obviously), and I think you should support too (the blog makes the case for this, though it’s naturally up to you).

Anyway, click through and see what it’s all about.  Very cool, methinks.

Oh, and if you make a donation, you could win a copy of The Demonologist!

Two Straight Weeks at #2!

Holy smokers.

The Demonologist is #2 on the Maclean’s Hardcover Fiction Bestseller List for a second straight week!  (Four weeks straight on the list, and four weeks straight as the #1 Canadian hardcover).

I’m so thrilled I think I’m going to shave.  (My face).  With a new razorblade!

A Second Printing in the US!

I heard last night that The Demonologist is to get a Second Printing by Simon & Schuster in the US!  Which means that, if you want a First Edition (and all the enormous investment upside that such a purchase entails)…now’s the time to get in.

(Personally, I’ve banked my entire retirement savings on First Edition hardcovers.  Foolish?  We’ll see.  Oh yes.  We’ll see…)

The Demonologist at #2!

Excited – and very grateful – to see The Demonologist on the Maclean’s Fiction Bestseller List here in Canada for a third straight week…at #2 this week!!

Thinking I might go wild and head up the street for a slice of pizza to celebrate.  That’s right, I’m that kind of crazy.
