Another year in the books…whew!
I launched this little podcast on March 18th of 2015, and here we are, two years later, and my-oh-my has the journey evolved. At the end of the first year, Lore had been listened to 12 million times. By the end of the second year, that number had climbed to 55 million. It’s crazy. It’s insane. It’s something I’m really proud of. And along the way, a few amazing things have happened.
Year Three, though…oh, it’s going to be crazier. Why? Well, let me count the ways:
First, the TV show is still happening, and moves closer to completion every day. Look for it to premiere on Amazon Prime this fall. Second, I’ve just signed a major book deal with Del Rey / Random House for a Lore book series. Which is awesome, because these stories belong on your shelves, not just in your ears. And lastly, there’s going to be a national Lore Live tour this year, kicking off on the West Coast in June. Learn more about the tour stops and dates here.
A TV show. A book series. A national tour. Whisper those to yourself quietly, and then take a few deep breaths. I’ll wait. It’s a lot to take in, I know. All good? Good. Let’s keep going, shall we?
Now let’s talk about you. Because all of this wouldn’t have been possible without the support of each and every one of you. You listen, you share, you buy merchandise, you drive hours (and sometimes fly hours) just to see live performances. You are the reason I wake up each morning and go write for hours. And I love you for it.
So here’s to another great year. A year of dark history. A year of story. A year of Lore.
