It's always exciting when the first printed copy of a new volume arrives, even if it has a "not for resale" stripe splashed across the cover.
Everything came out perfect, so we are on track to have an official launch date soon! Oh, and in case you missed it, here's the back cover copy again (WARNING: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR VOLUME FOUR):
"After a disastrous concert festival that claimed the lives of thousands, Joel Suzuki's archenemy is now, quite possibly, all-powerful. The only way Joel can undo the damage and save the universe is to return to Spectraland, complete his training, and fulfill his destiny as the Virtuoso - the greatest Wavemaker of them all.
Trouble is, Joel is stuck on the Bluerock (Spectraland's name for Earth) with no idea of how to get back, and he has only a few months before the gateway between the two worlds closes forever. What's worse, the one person he thinks can help him - and that he can trust - doesn't believe his story.
Then there's the pesky private eye on his trail, investigating the disappearance of Joel's friend Felicity, who was tragically killed at the concert festival. Or was she? With no solid proof that Spectraland exists, Joel starts to question whether the island of music and magic was even real in the first place...or was it all in his imagination?"
Joel may not have solid proof that Spectraland exists, but we do have solid proof - see what I did there - that this book exists. 'Cause, you know, this is a proof copy, and...okay, sorry, never mind. The humor in the book is better, I promise.
