Alrighty, I'm getting lots of e-mails about a few particular points, so I thought I'd clear them up here. If I haven't already e-mailed you, mea culpa. Things are stacking up in my inbox and I haven't had a chance to get to everybody. I'm tail over teakettle in revisions on The Dead Travel Fast, which are going splendidly, but taking lots of time. I'm also getting ready for this weekend's signing with Nora Roberts (squeeee!!!!) and attending to several other projects. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to juggle fire by the time things settle down! So, in no particular order...
*I touched on this last week, but it bears repeating: Silent on the Moor is not the last Julia Grey book.
*If your book club would like to set up a phone chat for Silent on the Moor or either of the previous books, e-mail me at deannaraybourn(at)yahoo(dot)com to make arrangements.
*Thanks to those of you who were kind enough to write and let me know SOTM was already on the shelves at your local bookstores. (But just a note, I have NO say in whether your personal bookseller puts the book out. It was shipped with a March 1 release date. If your bookseller chooses to put it out early, that is their call. If they choose to wait until March 1, that is their call. Also, I really have no contact with the online retailers, so if you're getting antsy for your Amazon or B&N online shipment, I'm not the best person to ask. This also applies to any questions or comments about production.)
*The Kindle contest got a whole lot better as of last week because I will be giving away a KINDLE 2!! Since I already own a Kindle, I was able to get priority shipping on the new one, and it should be here WELL before the contest closes.
*And to settle some questions about THE KINDLE CONTEST:
1. Do not send your order numbers to me at this time. The contest is not open to receiving entries yet, and when it is open, entries will not be via e-mail.
2. I will announce both here and via Facebook when the contest is open. I will also give instructions on how to enter at that time. (Sorry for the mystery, but we are still feverishly trying to get the new website up and running so we can run the contest from there. If we can't we will run it through this blog.)
3. For now, just hang onto your receipts or pre-order paperwork for Silent on the Moor and I promise all will be revealed soon! (The contest will be open to those who purchase through March 9, so we have oodles of time to make sure everybody gets entered.)
