Calais,

Try sending them an e-mail to inquire if they got your order. Keep in mind they are likely closed on Monday.

Done. I had forgotten about Memorial weekend. Hopefully I'll hear something back by Tuesday or Wednesday. I want my book *sniffles*.

And according to Meisha Merlin's site Stephe was going to be at Conquest in Kansas City Fri thru Sun. So with just Lynn and Stephe there I am sure processing of orders will take a bit longer.

Stephe goes directly on to Book Expo America in NYC, with no stop back, so it's only Lynn part time, since she just gave birth a bit ago.

The good news: Stephe has 20 finished books direct from the binder's in hand - he'll be handing me one when I go to NY to support Meisha at the Book Expo.

I gather that books shipped from the binder's went both to Meisha's warehouse and direct, to Diamond's warehouse....so both book store orders and direct orders from the publisher should be filled in step.

Not long, not long...

Thanks Janny, I'm thinking this week or next week Bookstop should have it. I'm hoping anyway. Thanks for the update.

I stumbled across this chat area a few days ago while trying to get an idea on when I would finally be able to get Traitor's Knot in my hands. I finally have some answers *joy* and I also found you guys to be interesting people with good personalities, so I've decided to pose something of a question to you. Let me set it up, and please just stick with me:

Picture this in your mind: There's an old man sitting in his study, writing a paper. He soon realizes that he needs a book from his library, so he gets up and goes out his door and into the hallway. He then walks down the hallway and turns into the doorway to the library.

The whole part about it being and old man needing a book doesn't really matter. What does matter is picturing his leaving the study, going down the hallway, and entering the library. So clearly picture that process in your mind.
The question is, when he left his study to go to the hallway did he turn left or right; and when he left the hallway and entered the library, was it on the left or right?

This is turning into a fairly lengthy entry, but I think it's rather intriguing to see how people visual different scenes when reading. The strange thing is that almost every single person I've asked has said right, right. (I sheepishly wonder if the first few times I may have been gesturing while I was talking and therefore ruining it.) Still there must be some psychological research out there on it or just other people's opinions. Any thoughts on how people picture what they are reading?

I hope I'm not the only freak out there, but both my hallway and my library were to the left.

I've noticed when my husband and I read the same book we pronounce a lot of the names and places differently. And sometimes I don't really think about how to pronounce things until I try to tell him about it.

Well, my into the hallway and into the library were to the right both times. (And as an added thought, he was facing towards the library while he was writing at his desk!

I think his desk was perpendicular to the door, back to a shelf with a few odd books and assorted items. I envisioned his study at the end of a hallway, and so he did not turn to go down the hallway. Due to the text, he had to turn into the doorway to the library (nice magic trick there, but couldn't he have just built a door to go in? lol) He turned left. also, I honestly pictured some stairs to the right, across from the library door.... even though having turned himself into the door, he could nver climb. :D
