Mr. Monk and the Book News

I delivered my draft of MR. MONK IN OUTER SPACE to my editor a couple of weeks ago and learned that they’ve  moved up the release date of the hardcover to November 1. That was quite a surprise and only underscores how enthusiastic and supportive they’ve been for these books. 

The hardcover of MR. MONK AND THE TWO ASSISTANTS  comes out in three weeks and I won’t be there to see it…this is the first  time I have ever missed the publication of one of my books. I won’t see it until I return to the U.S. in mid-August. The paperback edition comes  out on January 1st.

The hardcover for MR. MONK GOES TO GERMANY will hit bookshelves in July 2008 …which feels like wishful thinking right now, since I am still contemplating the plot on the set of FAST TRACK. With the hardcover and paperback schedule for the MONK books, it feels like I have even more books coming out than I did when I was doing  both MONK and DM at the same time…

While I’ve been here in Berlin, the German editions of MR. MONK GOES TO THE FIREHOUSE and MR. MONK GOES TO HAWAII have both come out…and I got word that MR. MONK AND THE  BLUE FLU will follow soon.

  1. So why is book five coming in November? I thought they were timing these to go with the new episodes? It seems really funny to me since the next one won’t be out until July.
    Not that I’m complaining. I’ll take these novels no matter when they come out.

  2. Mr. Monk and the Two Assistants comes out in 3th July calculating from 5th June or she comes out in 26th June? Because I’m a little confused, how to calculate this three weeks? With Saturdays and Sundays or without them? Can anyone tell me? Thanks anyway…
