Author’s copies have landed

There is book news: I now have real, live copies of  Cast in Silence beside my computer. I really like the cover, although it’s changed just a little bit since I posted the cover-flats a while ago.

These copies, which are author’s copies, are usually shipped at the same time as review copies of the real book, as opposed to ARCs (Advance Review Copy) which are bound and shipped much earlier. I never see ARCs for any of these, so my first encounter with a book is either on the shelves of the bookstore in which I work, or as author’s copies. Sometimes I get my author’s copies after ever living person who has any desire to see the book gets a chance to buy one first, and sometimes I get them first.

This time, first.

On July first, I’ll post the opening chapter of Cast in Silence here, as a way of celebrating the existence of book.

    It wasn’t meant as a tease, honest >.>. It was meant as a “You must do this by this date because you promised” reminder, sort of like tying string around your finger. Except, you know, in e-ink.

    I believe you, but I’m still suffering from withdraw. I *need* your new book(s).

    Oh! and I wanted to thank you for recommending The Thief, The Queen of Attolia, and the King of Attolia. I will be finishing the King sometime this afternoon, and I find them a very pleasant read.

    And now, of course, I have to go back and reread King of Attolia again. I adored that book. I loved the Queen, and I liked the Thief–but King took both and made the whole so powerful. I’m desperately waiting for “Winter 2010”, when Conspiracy of Kings will be published…
