The Australian branch of Harlequin/Mira has confirmed that as of now, the book has been cleared for publication. It will take the usual time to propagate from upload to consumer ready — 24 – 48 hours — and then it will be available. We’re working to make sure this doesn’t happen again in future, not only because it’s frustrating for you, but also because I (me, Michelle) feel enormously guilty doing book birthday posts when — yes — the book is not available to everyone who can read the post.

It’s pub day for Cast in Oblivion. Print books are in stores in North America – and probably in specialty SF/F stores in the UK and Australia. The audiobooks appear to be available everywhere. The ebooks appear to be available everywhere but Australia/NZ. Anything that can be done from here is being done — I’m really, really sorry because I honestly love my Australian fans T_T.

Which means the forums are now gone. In future, I will go back to the older model: I’ll make a post about each novel sometime after the publication day, which will be heavily SPOILER marked, for people who want to talk about … Continue reading
It’s 2019. I hope the close of 2018 was peaceful and warm. For my part, it was. I also make no New Year’s Resolutions this year for a change of pace. This is different from making resolutions which are … not so resolute by about April >.>. I actually took time off for the holidays, where “time off” = looking for appliances to replace our failing appliances. And hectic Christmas shopping. But we had a lovely Christmas, and both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day, so I am not complaining. Much. If the dishwasher had ears, on the other hand… I am, of course, still writing — but copy-edits ate much of December, and I was sick in bed for 3 days (which I don’t recommend when one has just managed to get … Continue reading
