TOUCH release day

Posted in Audio books, DAW, ebooks, Queen of the Dead.

In theory, release day for Touch was the 7th of January.

I say in theory because this only applies if you are not North of the border. We still don’t have copies at the store.


9780756408008_p0_v1_s260x420The book has begun to make its appearances on bookshelves in the wild! So I am posting this a little bit late >.>.

Touch is available. I’ve added links for the audiobook and the ebook (the inactive links are Kobo and Google, but I’m certain it will propagate out to both). In a week or so, I’ll post a more active spoiler thread – but this isn’t it :).

Someone on facebook (whose name is Joey) posted pictures of Touch. I actually haven’t seen the finished book yet (I may have mentioned that it hasn’t arrived in the store; I believe this is because it hasn’t arrived in Canada yet, and I get my author’s copies from the Canadian warehouse), so this is technically a first siting for me, as well.

(Yes, I made one post already today – but then I realized that I had missed Touch’s book day in the anxiety about the fate of my computer.)

    Posted on the Touch preview, but I managed to get a copy yesterday and absolutely loved it! Looking forward to rereading it after work today.

    Thank you so much for writing it.

    I understood that Touch was supposedly released yesterday. I asked Amazon for 2 days delivery and was expecting it tomorrow. Well surprise: it came today with other books that I had ordered to be delivered later. 6 of them in a small box.This was a very nice, very unexpected surprise!
    Guess which one I’m going to read first. Amazon is doing very well considering how bad they were in some previous Sagara/West book releases; they had the readers very angry. Michelle, thanks for such good books.

    Received my copy from Amazon UK today and read it in one sitting. I loved it. It was worth waiting for. Thank you for such a lovely, emotional read. Looking forward to reading the next Cast book now.

    Thank you for releasing The Hidden City on kindle for your Australian Readers. Very much appreciated! THANK YOU! I cant wait to read Touch..

    And thank you for reading (and loving it). I have to admit that I am slightly anxious about this particular book because it was so difficult to write – and part of the way I feel about it is mired in the process at this point >.).

    City of Night is almost ready and should join it soon. I intend to do all of them, and to have them all available (in English, though, because I am not competent in any other language) before Oracle is released.

    And then, to release Oracle in ebook at the same time as it’s available from DAW in the North American market.

    And then I’ll work on Silence, Touch and Grave – with the hope that I can get Grave out at the same time as the NA version.

    I have to say, though, that people who feel this conversion takes no work are clearly more competent than I am.

    I’m happy to hear it – that the book arrived early, I mean. I do remember some of the earlier books caused delivery frustration >.>

    I can imagine a book that caused stress during its creation would likewise be stressful during its release, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’ve gotten slightly picky with YA books since so many of them are a bit of a disappointment. Touch was like a breath of fresh air and I was so happy to have the chance to read it. So thank you again for writing it :)

    Just to let everyone (in Canada) know, the big chain now has copies in its stores — at least, the one in my town had a pair this morning.

    I’ve been looking for it on Kobo every few days, and it hasn’t shown up yet, two-and-a-half weeks after publication day. Should I practise my patience a bit longer, or is this long enough to guess that someone at the publisher forgot to tick the ‘available to buy in the rest of the world’-box at distribution, or forgot to send it to Kobo, and send them an e-mail?
    If so, do you happen to have a name or an e-mail address for the publisher, where I could send my question?

    Hi Michelle!
    I finished “Touch” — I read it yesterday — and I wanted you to know that I liked it. I think I enjoyed it more than “Silence,” and I can see why this one was so hard for you to write. I found many things quite compelling, and I think the last sixty to eighty pages, especially, were very effective.

    You know I prefer your West and Cast novels, but I enjoyed this one, and I wanted you to know.
