I am writing a book that goes to the editor the first week in June. Epub to follow soon after. The thing is, the book takes place in the fall, and the winter holidays. Do you think it matters that it's a winter book coming out in summer?


Just curious on your thoughts.

I don't think that poses much of a problem, and I personally don't find anything odd about that. Sometimes people read books immediately after they've been published, or they read whenever they hear of it, which can be at a much later time, and the focus for most readers is usually on what it's about, rather than when it's been published. That's like saying you can only read A Christmas Carol in December. :)

Unless you're trying to do a seasonal tie-in with your release, I don't think it'll matter.  I've got a fall release date for a novel taking place in spring.  No biggie. :)

Why should it matter? Novels are timeless. Besides, in Westeros Winter can last a lifetime...so....
