Post your predictions on how bad Devil May Care will be marketed in the United States.
Here are some likely scenarios:
Entertainment Weekly and Time will be the only magazines to review the novel. Both reviews will be favorable but few readers will be able to find the review hidden inside the magazines.
In the nation's bookstores, employees will throw up between 2 to 20 copies of the book in an obscure location on the eve of it's May 28th. Ian Fleming's Bond novels will be nowhere in sight because of course selling the books near each other wouldn't make any sense.
Blossoming Bond fans will come in to purchase Devil May Care as well as a Fleming novel or two but will only find a copy of the Casino Royale tie-in and Doctor No on the self.
My local Waldenbooks only had six books that were still in the back storeroom! There was no display, no area cleared in the new arrivals section, nothing that said it was even coming out. They'd long since pulled all Fleming novels off the shelf to make way for a vast collection of Murder She Wrote paperbacks.
I looked around and finally had to ask where the books were! The lady was like "Oh they're still in the back."!
She disappeared for a good few minutes then brought the meager stack out with my reserved copy on top. It was very disheartening.
