It’s a little on the later side because I am packing for Worldcon, but Cast In Sorrow should be avail­able in the wild, deliv­eries and orders willing. The ebook should be avail­able at all ebook sellers as of today; at least one person has said their library has it. The audio book, however, is not yet avail­able. My publisher said, in response to my panicked email, that Audible​.com will be releasing the book, but a bit later (in September). I’m sorry about the delay >.< (Edited to add: from Laura in comments below: The audio­book is now avail­able.)

I am home. I have more or less recov­ered from the flight between Melbourne and Toronto (Michelle is not the world’s best trav­eler, for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is: when I get off the plane, the first thing I want to do is crawl into my own bed and sleep for a day.) I loved Melbourne, though. I got a lot of work done, there. I have been working on Cast in Flame. My simple “Kaylin needs to find a new apart­ment plot” has kind of been hit hard by two unfore­seen compli­ca­tions.
