New announcement - you've heard it here, first!!!
got back to word from my London editor - Initiate's Trial WILL HAVE A HARDBACK EDITION!!!
A great leap in the right direction.
Note: when the release is announced DO ORDER PROMPTLY. Britain tags its hardback release to the large format paperback run. So the first run is usually the ONLY hardback run...to avoid disappointment, be sure to get your dibs in early.
Thanks to all who helped to support this. I am still working on fixing the dropped step with Stormed Fortress...this one is not going as smoothly (yet!) I have not given up.
Will place my preorder for mine and for friend as soon as it posts!!!

VERY VERY VERY VERY HAPPY! Now the question is do I order from the UK or from Canada? I suspect us in the colonies might get the short end of the stick (not that THAT'S ever happened before) when it comes to hardbacks.
Damn. That overseas shipping is a killer.
(okay, time to stop dancing and go back to work...)
Hey Janny - great news! Will this include additional unique artwork?
Clansman - not all colonies are equal, I am fully expecting us worthy readers in NZ and Oz to also get the hard covers when they are released in the wee island off the French coast.
Does this by any chance mean you have finished the draft?
Or is that too much to hope for with it being Christmas soon as well??
SWEET! I was really upset that Stormed Fortress doesn't match my pristine hardcover collection! xD (yes I am a little obsessive about my books, especially the good ones)
That is totally awesome!
That's wonderful, Janny!
It's the numbers outside the UK that changed the equation, so I fully expect the book will be available in that format outside Britain.
I don't know how things work in Aussie and NZ - you people there will have to keep the weather eye out when the book first appears.
On completing the draft, I have two more chapter sets, probably, to go. I plotted them out, yesterday.
