      1. I saw Scott at ReaderCon this year, and he mentioned that the release will be sometime next year. Amazon’s release dates aren’t always accurate, but it looks like we might finally see this one!

  1. They’ve had that release date up for a while, but it’s not official yet. (I am a buzzkill, I know. But someone’s gotta stalk this book so it might as well be me!)

  2. So, is the thinking now September for the release? Amazon still have July 2013 and are promoting it as that date – they sent one of their regular emails to me only this week saying ‘future releases you might be interested in’ – I got really happy there for one moment! Damn. I could possibly explode with anticipation – which won’t be pretty!
    Lynn :D
