So…I’ve received emails, Facebook messages and many death threats. Apparently, there are people out there who would rather go on vacation, lay in the sun, relax under palm trees, hit the road for summer adventures, spend days drinking beer, barbequing and dozing off on beaches…they would rather do these frivolous things than sit in a stuffy office, drinking coffee and reading the daily installment of The Weekly Man.
After long hours of painful thought, it occurred to me: They might just have a point. Maybe sun and fun might be a good thing. Spending time with loved ones while roasting marshmallows over a campfire every day for a couple of weeks might actually be good for the head and the spirit. These images reminded me of my youth, when I had a life and wasn’t the grumpy ball of meanness that I am today.
In light of this realization, I decided to change the release date from July 5 to September 8. OK…so that’s a Sunday, but there’s a very mysterious reason why it has to be Sunday. This will become apparent as the story unfolds. And, in fact, you can miss the September 8 installment altogether and still follow the storyline. It belongs in the story, but it doesn’t make any sense until the middle of the novel. And it’s not humorous. I wish I’d never written that installment, but I did. And now there’s no way to get rid of it.
On the other hand, if you’re a fast reader, you can read two installments on Monday. Just explain the situation to your boss and blame it all on me.
