We have ARCs!

Yes, folks, it’s finally here in physical form. I have a lovely pile of Advance Review Copies of The Betrayal of the Blood Lily sitting next to my desk. (Except for one, which is propped up on my desk, so I can gaze upon it and make oohing and aahing noises at five minute intervals).

Would the winners of Title Idol— Brie, Jennifer, and Pamela– please email me your snail mail info so I can send you your ARCs?

Although that’s three ARCs down, I still have a few more to give away. Check back here in September for a proper contest on the Contest page and some mini-contests on the News page. I’ll post ’em as soon as I think them up.

In the meantime, happy August!

    Question about the release date of the actual book. I might be teaching in China during the next school year…does anyone know if I can buy the book in China, or is it just better to have someone buy in the US and ship it to me?

    Hi, Sonia! I don’t know what the availability of the book will be over there (I’m guessing there are English language bookstores, but don’t know how quickly they stock, or what they stock), so you might be best off having someone in the U.S. get the book for you.

    Have an amazing time in China!!

    The avalability of English language books in China is VERY limited. I was there last year with an Lit major who wanted some books in English from China. It took her most of the two weeks to find a bookstore that sold any. Definitly have someone ship it!

    What a beautiful cover. I love the background color. Can’t wait to read it.

    Thanks so much for the China info! So sad about that, but that’s fine…I’ll be back in the states for the two week Chinese New Year vacation, so I can read the book just in time to wish you luck writing your NEXT book!
