Which means that it has come time to put the book out for sale on Amazon - working several months ahead and the book catalogues for booksellers, and they haven't yet agreed on a title. Which is how I read it from my awareness of the industry. Sometimes I'm scrambling for a title and being hassled months before publication, but it's preferable as a sell-in. So IMO it will acquire a title later on.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I did read somewhere (on her website maybe?) that one of the things she had going was a contemporary mystery.

I've heard her say that as soon as she indicates on her website that she's working on XX type of title, Amazon adds it to their site so that people can pre-order - even before she's through writing the manuscript.

This one has a publisher mentioned at least, so it may not be of that type!

I think it has been on Amazon UK for years now. I always assumed it was the contemporary mystery that she mentions working on (I think called Red Ant or Red something anyway).

Check out Diana's homepage - left column lists all her published work.


Could this mystery have turned into something listed under Anthologies?
