Hello!

I've discovered one unfortunate thing about writing, or attempting to write, two novels concurrently. I'm incapable of writing anything else. I finish writing for the day, and any creativity, any wit, and most of my outrage (okay that last might be a bit of an overstatement), has evaporated, leaving me strangely silent. This would be why I have been absent; I stare at the screen and cannot think of one interesting thing to say.

But! .

Cast in Fury made the extended NYT trade paperback fiction list for the 19th of October. My editor emailed me with the news on Thursday. I work at the store on Friday, and when I got home from work, I discovered these:



Sent by my editor and Tracey Langmiur, from Luna, to help celebrate this fact. They are really very nice, in that picture-doesn't-do-them-justice way.

Many congratulations.

Thought I'd let you know that Amazon.co.uk underestimated demand for Cast in Fury. I preordered from them for the book release due in the UK on 3 October but was told on 2 October that they'd be unable to fulfill my order until 31 October to 15 November (presume that's when the next print run is expected).

Needless to say I was spitting nails! *g*

I was away at the time, but took my first opportunity to go to Forbidden Planet yesterday to pick it up instead.

Anyway, bad news for me, but good news on the sales front!

Congratulations!
I also had this problem with amazon.co.uk but I purchased the ebook while I wait for my paper copy.
I'm not sure if ebooks are even counted on bestseller lists, does any one know?

Something like that seemed to have happened with Amazon.com, as well -- they seemed to move the date of ship to December, but moved it back again around release time.
