Hi Nicole Silvester - welcome here!
I do fine with the royalty in e book format, no worries there. A sale is a sale - while I appreciate your asking, truly - whatever makes you happy makes me happy, too. So get the format you prefer as a reader, first!
I pre-ordered the hardback version from fishpond, they had a nice price, free shipping in Australia, and a 27th Oct release date. Booktopia for some weird reason only has the paperback version available for pre-order, they are hedging their bets and have gone for a 28th Oct release date. I will still see if I can get the trade paperback version from an actual real local bookshop, but so far none around here will let me pre-order it.
Thanks, Annette - the very fact you are asking your local book shop to pre order this early - that mention and enthusiasm on your part - is drawing that title and the series to their attention. Books that are in demand by customers will get stocked at best, and won't slip under the radar.
Wonder why in the UK release for PB is oct, HB is Nov. Do I wait for HB or get PB and have it read by time HB is out...... decisions decisions :P
Hi Daryl Bamforth - welcome here!
As far as I know: the release date is Oct 27th, with no exceptions - hardback and paperback, simultaneous.
If you've seen a different listing, it would help to know where...
