The retail copy popped up on Amazon overnight. I'm not going wide with this one. Not expecting to see much in the way of sales activity either, since there's a big warning at the front of the book that it can be had for free at the bookclub.
But, if anyone is inclined to drop a review on it, that will help with discoverability.
I just hit send on the mailout and created a dozen or so new minty-fresh published writers. Huzzah.

So far 2017 is off to a cracking start. It hasn't killed any meme-worthy celebrities. Donald Trump isn't president. And I'm not even scrambling through a post apocalyptic wasteland fighting for rat meat and potable water. So, yeah. Good times. This is a great year so far.
SPOILER WARNING. Seriously. Stop now if you haven't seen the film yet.
I heard Cushing had been digitally reborn for R1 just before I saw the film. I wish I hadn't. I couldn't help but watch his scenes with a hypercritical eye, looking for the contours of the uncanny valley. I don't know that I'd have noticed much if I hadn't already known.

I'll probably open the spoiler threads for the book later today, but Jo MacD commented on Twitter this morning that she imagined the writer Laurie Penny as Cady.
I can totally see that. Great pick.
