I can announce that the initial offer was for a one million dollar advance for Fragment. (The "preemption" was of another interested and equally major publishing house.)

This was turned down so that foreign rights could be negotiated separately.

And, now that the foreign offers are coming in, we can see that it was clearly the way to go. When they are added up, it will be well more than a million dollars of advance to Mr. Fahy (for his first "publisher's row" book!) (After getting the offer from Spain [in Euros], Casey's only comment, "Ole!")

It looks like Fragment will be released in many, many languages -- a dozen... TWO dozen?

More to follow...

Congrats, Casey!!

Kudos, Casey!

'Six figures' has such a nice ring to it... Smiling

Re Mullet... Wiki says: "The term for the hairstyle is newer than the style. The Beastie Boys Grand Royal Magazine 1995 issue contained a piece on the mullet. The Oxford English Dictionary cites this as the first published use of the term, along with the lyrics from the Beastie Boys' 1994 song Mullet Head. The OED says that the term was apparently coined, and certainly popularized, by U.S. hip-hop group the Beastie Boys. The name could have come from the film Cool Hand Luke."

Wiki example of The Mullet:

Excellent...

Congratulations on your success, Casey. I cannot wait to buy the book.

Did he really write an article that coined the term "mullet"? If so, that is hilarious. I have always loved a good mullet when I see one.

June of '09 for hard and paper release, if I'm not mistaken.

And stayed tuned for still more exiting news!

And six figure sum. Even with the devalued American dollar that must mean party at Casey's.

Can't wait to read Fragment ... I don't think that article mentioned publishing timeframe? 

James is being coy ...
