Today, Grave is officially out in the wild. Book Three of The Queen of the Dead, it’s available in hardcover. I’m both nervous and excited because the series is finished with this book. Grave is longer, by about 55k words, than either Silence or Touch. But everyone expects the last book to be longer, right?
I went into the store and signed the copies that arrived, and I’ve stubbed my toe on the boxes in the hall (author’s copies – I swear stubbing my toes on a box is how I know a book is real). I can sign/dedicate books if you order them through the store – but as we’re not amazon, the postage is not cheap =/.
The Audio book, narrated by Alexandra Bailey, will be available as well.
This time, however, while the physical book is not available except by the usual ordering from North American bookstores/online stores, the ebook will be available to those of you who don’t live in North America. In the US and Canada, the publisher is DAW, and you won’t notice a difference. If the non-North American ebook is not yet available, it’s on its way and should definitely be available before the end of the 7th, which is technically today (I’m writing this at 2:15 a.m. on the 7th).
Silence and Touch are also available as ebooks in non-NA markets.
The books have different covers (I really like the DAW covers), so they don’t look the same. The contents, however, are (with the exceptions of US spellings). These covers were designed and executed by Tiger Bright Studios, and I really like them, as well.
