Waistcoats & Weaponry

November 4, 2014

“You’re a wonderful dancer, Ria.”
“Mademoiselle Geraldine’s takes such things seriously.”
“Ah. And how many ways do you know to kill me, while we dance?”
“Only two, but give me time.”
“You have lovely eyes. Has anyone ever told you that?”
“What rot. They are a muddy green. What are you about, Lord Mersey?”
Felix sighed, looking genuinely perturbed. His air of ennui was shaken. “I am trying to court you. Truth be told, Miss Temminnick, you make it ruddy difficult!”
“Language, Lord Mersey.” Sophronia felt her heart flutter strangely. Am I ready to be courted?
“See!”
― Gail Carriger, Curtsies & Conspiracies

“So, did you hold back during that test?”
“Maybe a little,” Sophronia admitted.
Soap grinned. “That’s my girl.”
Sophronia glared at him. He was getting familiar.
“You are, miss.” He continued to grin.
“I’m my own girl, thank you very much.”
― Gail Carriger, Curtsies & Conspiracies

    I tried to put this under reply, but it isn't showing up, so I'm going to try and trying it again. If this becomes a duplicate, please excuse me.

    This is infuriating! Google Play has the book, but none of the formats it supports can be read on the Kindle, and I can't find a copy of it at Apple's iBooks, so I can't use my iPad either. I'd consider getting a print copy, but I have serious problems with my hands and shoulders and most print books are too heavy for me to be able to hold up and read, which is why I went to using a Kindle in the first place. I'm quite angry at Amazon right now!

    I had hoped to be able to get a review copy through NetGalley, but was turned down. I know they had Kindle format available for it, however, so I was wondering if you or your publisher would be able to sell Kindle-compatible copies outside of Amazon, or would that violates their policies?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I've REALLY been looking forward to reading this and to discover less then a day before I was expecting to get the book that I can't get it at all for any of the equipment I have is very disappointing. I know it is not YOUR fault, Gail, and I feel really bad you are being hurt by this also. Hopefully Amazon will soon pull it's head out from wherever it is currently and this can get resolved.

    Oh I am so with you. I couldn't be more annoyed than you. (I have a kindle and wrist problems also, so I hear ya!) My publisher can not (or will not) sell Kindle versions (.mobi) via non-Amazon vendors. However, I think that tomorrow it may be available on Amazon, regardless. Some of my friends are with Orbit (another Hachette publisher) and their new ebooks were not up for pre-order, but came available right away once officially released. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I828B1M/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00I828B1M&linkCode=as2&tag=authgailcarr-20&linkId=4BPNISXDFBE7GMTA
    If you are tech savvy, do drop me an email and I might have some other tips over private correspondence. http://www.gailcarriger.com/contact
    Thank you for trying! ~ Gail

    I'm glad to hear there may be some hope yet 🙂 Do you know approximately the time at which books are typically released?

    Thanks!

    Good question. My guess is one minute after midnight local time, unless Amazon isn't that careful. In which case it would start East Coast time. Which means 9pm for us West Coasters.
