    The Notch by Tom Holland

    New Signed Limited Edition Announced!
    The Notch by Tom Holland
    First Novel Ever by director and screenwriter of
    Fright Night and the original Child's Play!



    Hi Folks!

    We're very pleased to report we'll be publishing The Notch by Tom Holland, the very first novel ever by the director and screenwriter of Fright Night and the original Child's Play!

    About the Book:
    Joe Arachro pulled to a halt on a small hillock, looking across the expanse as it rose up into a sudden flat top butte. There was another jagged butte tilting at an angle next to the mesa, not as wide or long. It was like they just appeared from nowhere, dropped down here in the middle of the desert. And in the shimmering glare in the notch between these two buttes, a ten-year-old boy walked out of the sun, surrounded by the blazing rays.

    The boy doesn't speak, but he has startling powers: he heals a young girl's torn cuticle, and later erases all damage to a man's badly burnt hand, and it seems there's no limit to the miracles he can perform. After a dog gets run over by a car, the boy apparently brings the animal back to life, and a video of the event goes viral. Suddenly everybody has an idea of who the boy is, and what he might do for them -- and it's a race against time to see who can get to the boy first and gain control over him.

    In the wrong hands, the boy's powers could be catastrophic.

    From Tom Holland, director and screenwriter of Fright Night and the original Child's Play, comes this new fast-paced thriller with surprises at every turn.

    I'm a little iffy on the premise as the "miracle child" trope is not my favorite, BUT I'm very excited to see what Mr. Holland brings to the table as I'm a fan of his as filmmaker.

    This sounds interesting and I love the page count and price. Heck these days I'm dropping close to $30 bucks for a new hardcover at the bookstore.

    I took a chance on this one as well, as I agree the price is nice for a signed limited edition. Also, after I used my CDCC discount and monthly credit it was free. ;-)

    I'm limiting my "I took a chance" purchases to two a year. I've been smoked too many times. And for the first half of this year, my I took a chance purchase was Max Booth Touch the Night. Mostly because it makes me think of this song:

    You know Jeff, if you took more chances it would allow you to increase you video release schedule. That would drive more viewers to your channel. That would assist you in monetizing your channel. That would allow you to buy more books! This new offering is a prime example. Tom Holland has a following outside of the book world. Having an unboxing of his 1st book could drive traffic to you. Your welcome!

    I went for this one too - sounds interesting, and worth a shot for the price.

    I ordered this one right away after I got the original offer. I’m selective with my purchases lately due to budget, but based on the history of the author, an interesting storyline, and the great price, it seemed like a good investment to me.

    Lately I've seen two different books from CD that made me want to pull the trigger and make a purchase. Muse, really caught my attention-I passed. The Chrysalis-the dustjacket cover had me looking and I was quite tempted, I passed. I have the CD credit. Maybe I'll change my mind about these two books.

    I know and saw that. I'm just being frugal at the moment but (as stated above) I like fact that this is a big book.

    I received the ARC in my ARC grab bag. Don't know when I'll get to it but hopefully in a few weeks.

    CD has had a few books of late that look interesting, but like you I'm trying to be more selective...and even more so, perhaps, is that I'm just not doing pre-orders with CD until the pre-orders I have of almost three years ago are delivered. I understand and sympathize with the issues that threw wrenches into their schedule and still appear to reverberate, but it's cooled my jets as far as CD pre-orders go (and, really, pre-orders in general, though I do have more with SST than I'd prefer). These days I'm just content to wait until the books are released and I'll see what I have to have then. That strategy doesn't always work out well -- as evidenced by the sell-out of UNDER THE BIG TOP -- but I understand and accept the risk.
