This sounds like a great book. Still on the fence about ordering it. Is the book in pre publication? Is it going to be shipped this year? I love the fact that you are supporting author charities. Nice touch. Congratulations on a super project.

The Gift and Limited will ship around the end of October. Not 100% sure on the Lettered Edition, it depends on who makes the traycase. It should be by the end of the year, though.

The special edition of FAITHFUL will include the essays "It's Weird But True: The Gloom is Gone in Mudville" by Stephen King and "Love Train" by Stewart O'Nan, which did not appear in the original hardcover.

For those who were wondering if there might be some surprise features not mentioned in the announcement, you were correct. Each copy of the sold out Lettered Edition will be coming with one of these signed baseball cards, which have resided in Stewart's personal collection for the last decade:

All the versions look great. Nice work.

I was wondering if you had ever thought of making the book from the same materials used to make a baseball.

The traycases for the Limited Edition of FAITHFUL by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King are deep in production and should be finished next month. I received my first approval case and thought you might like to see a few quick photos of how everything turned out:

Good news about FAITHFUL for those who might be interested!

The new Limited Edition traycases are on the way and should arrive by the end of the month, so then it's just a matter of getting this edition into the shipping queue.

In addition, I'm now taking some photos of the first completely finished Lettered Edition to land on my desk. These will be shipping in April and turned out really nicely, I think.

Here is a quick photo of all three editions together for the first time:

** IF you still want a Limited Edition or Lettered Edition, I have a few copies left that I had held back for an indie retailer who didn't come through. These can now be ordered through the Cemetery Dance website while supplies last:

Received my numbered copy today and WOW! Honestly I was thinking of selling it because I don't normally collect non-fiction and also I don't care for baseball at all but this is such a beautiful book I think I might keep it! I only wish I had had enough since to request my King number which is 53, did anyone here get 53 and would be willing to swap with me?




Edit: This was included with an SK grab bag offered last year is the reason why I wound up with it in the first place in case anyone is wondering why I would order something I wouldn't normally collect :)

Hey Tommy!

I might be able to email the collector who ended up with #53, but any arrangements you guys made would be up to you at that point, of course!
