That's super-exciting! Congrats, Ham!


WTG! In-world appearances, publication rights--yeah!
You're the right man for the job, too.
Best wishes,

What will the authors name be?

Your RL or your SL name?


wooot! yay Hammie!

(don't forget to write two or three chapters about me!)

Celebrity Trollop

Congratulations, Hammy! That's super exciting!

Relee Baysklef

That's great! I like the idea of Books in SL, I have one on my virtual coffee table even. Though I do feel a little uncomfortable about paying full price for something I can't take out of the metaverse if something terrible were to happen.

Linda Zimmer

A huge congrats, Hamlet!!!

Interfect Sonic

Yay! SL books!
Any plans to sell this on the TG? I want a copy.

Kefrens LOWE

Really Great !!!
Now, I'm impatiently awaiting for the French release ^_^

"...and, of course, have it signed by me at in-world appearance." *snort* That just made me LOL.

Alastair Chamerberlin

And to think we can say we knew you when!! You're the man now dawg!

Ben King

Congratulations! Looking forward to reading it!

Hamlet Au

Thanks all!

Far as the virtual edition, Relee, the details aren't worked out yet, though I'll definitely work to make it affordable. May do it like Julian, and offer a deal for the virtual edition only...

Very interesting. And congrats! My first three novels were published by HarperCollins. It's a great house and now it sounds like they're on the cutting edge of publishing.

This is great. The book will be a training exercise for my digital surrogate, ie virtual clone who reads all my imaginary media to me so the web effluvium does not overwhelm me.

Haptic immersive telepresencing means we can now reach out and touch someone, and not just fantasize about it.
