Since Locus outed it just now, see the news on the very front page, I can speak about it:
ibooks, Inc. has declared bankruptcy and the company has shut down completely as of today, February 22.
Which means that my poor book DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE has been orphaned, and will obviously not come out in this edition.
Remember those ARCs I have been offering and some of you requested and received?
PFTHTHTHT. (But hold on to them, folks, I may still need your blog reviews for another edition opportunity, see below.)
However, the Good News Part A is, this is happening NOW, and not AFTER my book is out already, which would be a whole big contractual mess, so I guess I am lucky.
And second, Good News Part B is, John Betancourt has kindly offered to reprint DREAMS as a Prime Books title in offset with national distribution. They may even be using the same cover art, or whatever -- I am not sure yet.
More exciting up-to-minute updates as I know them....

Vera -- Commiserations on your book being orphaned. I know how it feels. Hope the Prime deal works out, and the book's a big success.

Thank you, Jonathan!
At this point, I am just crossing all my appendages and holding my breath.

There are many of us crossing parts of us and holding our breath with you. So gods! Get useful! DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE should be no orphan. If only Nadir could come to the rescue.

Nadir! I love it!
*grin* Thanks, Anna.
