The covers are beautiful, I hope they don't change for the US releases.

Unfortunately, they probably will. As far as I know, the UK and US releases are separate ventures, with different covers.

Just wondering--would one of our UK members be willing to post a list of the Plaidy releases there? It would be interesting to see what's been re-issued.

Well I'm not from the UK, but I moseyed over to .uk and clicked on Jean Plaidy, here's what I got. They get such cool covers I'm jealous. I don't know enough about Plaidy's books to put them into series order, although I might try and post the covers here. Later, I really must get back to work right now :p :o :confused:

Fantastic Fiction can help with putting the books in order, although the website is not showing the new covers.

Funnily enough, I don't think this is quite the full picture. I saw on Amazon UK that they will publish the Lucrezia Borgia series soon but I can't find those books on the publisher's list. Shocking how so many publishers are unable to keep their own websites up to date with their releases.

The Lucrezia Borgia series should be out next June, along with Defenders of the Faith. Most publishers aren't listing next summer's titles on their websites yet - it's still a long way away :) I expect they're on Amazon now because publishers have to obtain ISBNs for new titles far in advance.

Fair enough. I just assumed that Amazon's information can only come from the publishers, so it seems a shame that the publishers can't provide this information on their own websites. Anyway, I've generally learned not to place too much reliance on publishers' websites...
