New Book Contract

This past week while working on proofreading my forthcoming book, Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It's Too Late, I have been simultaneously working out the details with my editor for another survival-related book.  A sample has been written and yesterday I received a second book contract from Ulysses Press - something I certainly didn't expect to happen even before Bug Out was released. 

I'll have a busy spring and summer, as the manuscript for this new book is due by September 1, and publication is scheduled for January.  I like the fast pace however, and I'm excited to be working with a publishing company that understands the market and is able to move fast enough on these projects to get them to readers while the interest is there.  In a recent Publisher's Weekly article, Ulysses Press was named among the fastest-growing publishers in 2009, despite the recession that has hurt the industry as a whole.  Here's the full article: 

The indie presses that grew in 2009 benefited from bold decision making
