Amazon & Hachette find Prudence at Last

Amazon and Hachette have resolved their dispute. I am no longer in #Amazonjail. This means my books should, once again, be available to ship via Prime and up for pre-order. We will be running the test with Prudence, I suppose. And then Manners & Mutiny in a year (not yet up for pre-order, I haven’t even seen any cover art).

“He had the look of one who had drunk the cup of life, and found a beetle at the bottom.”
~ P. G. Wodehouse

Speaking of Prudence, yes indeed, Orbit is producing ARCs for this book. The book itself will be out in hard cover but the ARC is trade size paperback.

They are available through the usual press channels. I have no idea if they plan to do a net galley as well. I will certainly let you know as soon as I have further information. Aside from offering a few ARCs to the Chirrup subscribers or on my website via contests (likely to happen in January) I can’t send you one myself. It must come via my publisher.

So far as I know, plans are to drop the print edition, audiobook, and the ebook at the same time in the US & UK, March 17. I don’t know who my reader will be on the audiobook.

“The Gamma paused. ‘You have a crazed werewolf in your wine cellar?’
‘You can think of a better place to stash him?’
‘What about the wine?'”
~ from Heartless, just because

I’m collecting questions for the pre Prudence release FAQs so if you have anything to ask me about this book that you would like answered here on the blog feel free to comment or calling card them my way.

Book News:
Cherry Blossoms & Maple Syrup says of Waistcoats & Weaponry, “Gail Carriger’s writing continues to delight in this installment, and for those who are huge Parasol Protectorate fans, this book has so many references it’s pretty fabulous. I admit, reading this book on the bus ride home and giggling in public — yeah, that happened pretty often.”

    Good news indeed. Do you know if this will be available in audio format too? If it is, will it be narrated by the splendid Emily Gray?

    Is funny how my two main awaited events, next year, are your book and the Foo Fighters concert. Is not even in the same genre, but both full of action.
    Now, I do have a question. How does the fashion for Prudence's book look like? What is the year and the style?

    For some reason, I have always thought that Wodehouse quote was "He looked like one who had drained the wine cup of life to its lees, only to find a dead mouse at the bottom." Though Wodehouse being Wodehouse, it probably appears in more than one place with slight variations.

    So much yay. Gail, dear, my husband has been reading Soulless and now Changeless. He isn't much of a reader (mostly for lack of time -busy accountant), but he's been reading them over things like watching TV or playing video games. Most exciting. The other night he came to bed convinced our favoritest warewolf would be killed off soon and Alexia left an early widow. The horror! He even tweeted you. (Though he prefers on twitter to not point out that we are married.) Anyway, had to gush. Thrilled about Prudence!
