The Bones of Makaidos Release

AMG Publishers told me yesterday that April 1 will be the official release date for The Bones of Makaidos. I received the typeset version of the manuscript, which will the published version. It is 676 pages long, so it's ten percent bigger than Eye of the Oracle. I like the logo they chose to put on each page, but I'm not telling what it is. :-)

If you pre-ordered the book from me, I will send out your copy as soon as I get my supply, which will probably be a few days before April 1.

I hope you're looking forward to the release as much as I am.

How can book releases be on another day besides Tuesday? Bookstores never release new books any other day of the week. I've followed the trends.

Bryan Davis said...

Aiony, I have never heard that before. I have had books released on dates other than Tuesday. I just checked Brisngr's release date. It was a Saturday.

With my dragons books, the stores just put them on the shelves when they get them. April 1 is the publisher's estimate for when they will arrive.

YAAAYYY!!!! I am soooo excited!!

Aiony said...

Maybe it's different for Christian sellers. I know Barnes and Noble and Borders never put new books out until the next Tuesday.

Though I always have trouble finding your books down here until long after the release date anyways.

Jessica said...

I reeeaaaaaaalllly can't wait!

When I hear of book releases I hear about them mostly on Saturdays, I think Aiony was maybe thinking about movies?

Thanks for the news!

i know, the cover has been my laptop background for close to a month!!! I can't wait for it, and I love how Bonnie's wings look! They are so beautiful...*sighs*

Rachael said...

That is so exciting! :) I just recently finished The Last of the Nephilim, which was excellent. I am definitely looking forward to what happens next! :) I love your books; and not only the stories, but also the spiritual lessons that the characters learn. It touches my heart and I feel like I learn along with them.

In Christ,
Rachael

Bryan Davis said...

meggy said...

omg!!! ok u can call my obsessed or watever u want but these are my fav books on the face of the planet and i am sooooooooo looking forward to the realease of BoM!!!!!! if u talked to any of my fam they would tell you how long ive been waiting for this!!!! im so obsessed i wrote a poem about dragons for some skool thing.......

Fearsome fangs, and wings unfold,
Full of legends young and old.
Rubellite upon their breast,
Slayers put them all to rest.


so yeah... that was random... but anyway... mr. davis, your books have defiantly made an impact on my life. apart from the entertainment [which is totally awesomely sweet!!! :) ] the spiritual aspect of the books has really helped me in my walk with Christ. with all the secular books out there, its nice to find a series that not only doesnt have the profanity and nastiness of secular novels but actually encourages a closer walk with the One who gave us all we have. thank you for sharing your gift of writing with all of us!

Ian Roberts said...

Dear Mr. Davis, I have been on the Internet looking for the release date of Bones of Makaidos. The various answers I got were extremely annoying. Please verify when the Bones of Makaidos will be released. (Amazon says it will be March 12.)

Bryan Davis said...

Ian, the official release date is April 1. Amazon is not correct about March 12. The book will go to press on or about February 27. It takes about three to four weeks for it to be printed. It is scheduled to reach the publisher's warehouse around March 20. It will then be sent to distributors and bookstores.

It is possible that some places could get the book a couple of days before April 1, but it won't reach nationwide distribution before that date.
