Hi Susan,

Every country has its own publishing schedule, so I get books in February from Serbia, and from China in April. Usually the US is first, but I was several months late with the novel and the UK said they were sticking to their August schedule come... well... hell or high water! Originally, THQ was supposed to come out in August in the US.

Just went on Michelle's website and I found all the quotes from those who read her book. I thought some maybe interested in how great the reviews are :)

The Heretic Queen gets a big thumb's up from me! I absolutely loved it. I'll be posting an interview with Michelle (in which we talk about slaves, harems and the pressure of writing a second book) on my blog on Monday the 15th, and my review of the book on Tuesday, the official publication day.

Everyone hurry up and read the novel so we can talk about it! :)

I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival in my mailbox. Amazon is saying it won't be shipped until September 22!

My copy should be here tomorrow! I'm wondering if I should start another book or just wait!!
