5 Days, 20 Hours, 20 Minutes and counting… Data Runner drop date almost here!

Wow, I can’t believe the Data Runner drop date is almost here! With all the pre-marketing we’ve been doing, it’s actually kind of surreal to realize that people will no longer have to tag Data Runner for future reading but will be able to download and read it on the spot.

There’s been some really good buzz that I want to share with you guys. I just found out today that Data Runner has been featured as a Teen Beach Read on iBookstore (click here for Data Runner on iBookstore), so that’s exciting.

I also want to share an awesome review written by fellow YA author (and UM alumni) Braxton Cosby. Here’s a snippet…

I’m running. I’m running. And I can’t stop. As an ex-track athlete who spent most of his time doing the exact same thing in high school and college, I can appreciate a good run. I was a hurdler. Leaping over a 42 inch barrier, running full speed, with multiple adversaries in the adjacent lanes next to you is no small feat. It takes a great degree of focus and energy . . . Sam Patel set out to create a new series that captures the essence of these elements with his stunning debut in Data Runner.

Please do check out the full review here at Cosby’s Corner.

I’m also pleased to announce that I will be doing a guest post called “Building a Different Kind of Dystopia” for Writing Belle on July 8th, so keep your eyes open for that as well.

That’s about it for now. More updates to follow…
