I agree. I was going to put in a purchase request at the library and they've already got several on order. Yay!

[quote=""michellemoran""]Thank you SonjaMarie, Vanessa and Nona!!!! For pre-orders, it's possible to place one if you're in the UK using amazon.co.uk, since the book comes out earlier there (July, I believe). In the US, however, the Amazon/Borders/B&N etc pages won't go up for a month or two.

My editors (UK and US) have promised a peek at my covers (they will be different) within the next month, and I'm dying to see how the photo shoots went. They used actual models, and both were shot in London using neo-classical architecture for the background. I'll be interested to see how much of the architecture will be in the covers, if there will be faces, and whether the costuming was accurate!![/quote]

I can't wait to see them! And congrats....I am eagerly awaiting your new novel!

I saw Paul Waters new book out on shelves in London even though Amazon.uk seems to be listing it as out of stock (with a street date of Feb 6th no less). Bookdepository has it listed as in stock though for trans-Atlantic buyers.

Thanks for the tip, Gyrehead. I've had "Cast Not the Day" on my wishlist since reading "Of Merchants and Heroes". I've just checked and see that the library has it on order though, so will try to be patient. It probably won't be too long, as in New Zealand our book stocks are generally supplied through the UK.

I now have a date for the publication of my book The de Lacy Inheritance. Published by Myrmidon Books if will be out (in the UK) on 4th August.


'When it becomes clear that Robert de Lacy will die without an heir there is more than one person who believes that a vast tract of land across Lancashire and Yorkshire should pass to them. Robert's cousin, Albreda Lisours is determined that the inheritance must stay in the family, but a local priest, the Dean of Wallei, believes it has been promised to him.

The dispute is eventually resolved by the intervention of a leper, and Johanna FitzEustace finds that the solution provides the answer to her own difficulties.

As well as telling the story of the inheritance the book explores some of the medieval concepts of the relationships between love, religion and disease.'
