Power and Majesty Updates

  • Posted on June 9, 2010 at 9:57 am

On the Voyager website they have a slightly more extended sample from the book – fair warning, though, it cuts off with far less regard to a proper stopping place, so might leave readers more frustrated than when they started!

The good news is that for many of you the wait is coming to an end. I’ve had a couple of reports from people who pre-ordered copies of the book that it has come into stock in their mainland-chain-bookstore-of-choice. And of course Hobartians have been able to purchase the book from The Hobart Bookshop since Thursday – but nowhere else! This will all change shortly I hope, though I have signed a lot of stock for Chris & Janet at the Hobart Bookshop, so if you want to pick up a signed copy that’s still a good place to go.

No word yet on which is the best option for overseas readers to order through. Both the Book Depository and Fishpond have listings for Power and Majesty, though neither seem to have actual stock yet. If anyone does successfully order the book from a country other than Australia or New Zealand, let me know how you did it and whether it’s a recommended service!

The launch went very well – booksellers, author, and many of the guests were happy with it! I have blogged about it in more detail here, but in short – it was a fun evening, the children looked gorgeous and so many of my nearest and dearest turned up to launch the book in style. Goodness, am I going to have to do this every six months? (heh, good problem to have, I know)

I expect to have a new CreatureCourtCast up later this week – my voice is still recovering!
