Announcements, and some links

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am so, so grateful for all of you, you don’t even know.

I have a small announcement to make that I know some of you will find disappointing. The release date for my e-book, A Lily Among Thorns, has been moved to March 2011. I don’t know yet when it will be released as a trade paperback–the schedule is still in flux, I think–but my best guess is sometime next fall.

All of this reshuffling is so that Dorchester can do the absolute best job possible with all the releases they have coming up, so please be patient!

I have put the first chapter of Lily up on my site for those of you who are curious, but if four months is too long for you to be in suspense, don’t read it yet!

And now for a few fun links:

A hilarious series of Kate Beaton comics on Dracula and vampirism as Bram Stoker’s metaphor for sexually empowered women.
Kate Beaton on Javert from Les Mis.
Via Susanna Fraser’s blog, a great blog post on learning about critique from Tim Gunn. As Susanna points out, the tips apply to writing as well as fashion design.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. You’re right, it is disappointing, but if this means they do right by your book then that’s the important thing. I can be patient. I hope. *g*

  2. Well, by then I will almost certainly have an e-reader to read it on! Looking forward to it whenever and however it emerges.

  3. Oh, I *am* disappointed. I just loved your first book. I hope the paperback comes out soon, but maybe I’ll just have to start reading e-books!

    1. Aw, thanks! I haven’t read many e-books either, but I don’t know that I’ll be able to resist buying a reader for much longer, especially since Carina’s been publishing great historicals from everything I hear…
