You may have noticed an up-tick in my posts on Twitter and Facebook about a new book that was released today, The Half-Drowned King. I’m biased, and for good reason: my wife wrote it. But I think it is amazing and so do a whole bunch of other people who are paid to know such things.

Over the past few months we’ve been preparing for today’s release. A book tour was a natural extension of the launch, for example. I kept my mouth shut (harder than you’d think) until I was asked to help plan those trips and that has been all sorts of fun. But the biggest highlight for me came a couple months ago when she received an email letting us know the book would be available in flight. To of my favorite things mixing together like that is all sorts of awesome.
JetBlue has a section of its inflight connectivity portal, The Hub, that includes books to read while on board. And a few months back we learned that The Half-Drowned King would be included in that collection. Thanks to Marie who was on a flight early this morning we’ve now seen it in action.
So, yeah. I’m pretty excited that happened.
And expect to read more about the tour bits as the trip progresses.
