Middle of September? Seriously? *blows dust off blog*
Also, I’ve just been told that the release date has shifted a week, so instead of being available December 29th, it’ll be pubbed on January 5, 2010. So really, much easier than trying to ship out over New Years. 🙂 If you pre-ordered it from Amazon, you’ll have to go in and approve the order again since the date did change.
So far, the official release date for HOLD ON TIGHT (aka Chris’s book) has remained January 26, 2010, but that could shift. If it doesn’t, well, then you get books 2 and 3 very close together, which is nice.
For now, I’m busy working on book 5 – Zane’s book which still has no title, but hey, the proposal was accepted by my editor, so that’s cool. And I’m editing Sydney’s next, Tempting The Fire, which has an August 2010 release date last time I looked. And then Larissa and I dive right into writing Stryker’s book (book 6)…so this fall will be busy.
Again, mid-September? Really?
Oh, and this post from author Saundra Mitchell cracked me up. This paragraph, especially, on what happens when your first book is finally published:
…your grandmother is in tears because she didn’t see it at Wal-Mart. Not that she was going to buy it- everybody even remotely, genetically connected to you expects you to give them a copy- you’d think they’d take pity on you because of your non-Twilight advance and buy one. Or two. Come on, people, some pity- I didn’t send my book to Oprah, I’m doomed!
See, and most of my family doesn’t plan on buying it, but they don’t want copies from me either…(don’t worry – for some reason this just makes me laugh…) But, of course, that means you’ll all have to make up for the non-familial buying and grab yourselves some extra copies…what?
