Changing Release Dates
- Etiquette & Espionage (The Finishing School Book the First) is still releasing February 5, 2013. It will be in hard back. You can pre-order on Amazon or any fine bookstore online or near you. The print book may ship BEFORE the release date. It may be available in stores BEFORE the release date. The ebook will drop ON the release date. The audio book is suposed to be out around the same time, it will be available for digital download but it is impossible to know the exact date. I doubt the CD will be easily available for this series . . . ever.
- Curtsies & Conspiracies (The Finishing School Book the Second) has been moved forward to November of 2013. Cover art reveal coming soon.
- Prudence (The Parasol Protectorate Abroad series Book the First) has been bumped to March of 2014.
There are a number of reasons for this change, but mainly it has to do with me and what I've been able to write this year. I thought I could balance writing one book every six months along side my releases, touring and other events, but it turns out I was a little ambitious. If you ever see me at the buffet table you'll notice I have a tendency to bite way more than I can chew! So the editors and I had a confab and we are shifting things about to compensate. In 2014 I hope to drop back to one book every eight months.
I'm sorry to disappoint those of you who are more in the adult-only book camp, but I need to stay sane and not burn out so I can write more! And more! In that vein, I'm hoping to at least have a short story for you during the wait, set in the Parasol Protectorate universe. But no promises.
On the other hand, this will give you the chance to immerse fully in Sophronia's world in 2013. Two books in the same year in the same story arc!
