Great news: Viking is going back to the presses! Yes, copies of
Syrup, which have been increasingly hard to find in the US &
Canada lately, will soon be nestled on bookstore shelves again.
To all those people who wrote in for the SaveOurSyrups e-mail campaign:
thank you so much! Your support really helped.
I don’t yet know when the new Syrups will be available. If you’d
like to be notified when the book comes out, e-mail
The film option period has expired, and I don’t see any Syrup
movie posters around featuring Matt Damon, so I must have the rights back. This means I get to sell them all over again, which isn’t a bad deal, really. Apparently some writers make a pretty good living just re-selling film options to their books, with no film ever being made. Not bad work if you can get it. But… I’d love to see the film get up.
There’s some interest from a few different production companies, so we’ll see how we go.
