Ravensong Release Date Issues

RE: Ravensong release date

As some of you might be aware, Amazon in all their infinite glory has changed the release date for no apparent reason to August 7th. In fact, I am hearing that some people have had their pre-orders cancelled because of this.

THE RELEASE DATE HAS NOT CHANGED. My publisher is attempting to get this fixed with Amazon, but so far, they aren't doing anything. The book will be released everywhere else (i.e. through Dreamspinner, B&N, Kobo, the usual places) this Tuesday, 7/31. If you pre-ordered through Amazon, check to see if your pre-order was canceled. If so, you can either re-order through Amazon and hope for the best, or choose a different place to buy.

I'm sorry, I know this sucks, but it is out of my control at this point. I'm just as frustrated as you are, and hope Amazon gets their fucking asses in gear.

Big News!!

The last six months have been insane. I wrote a YA queer romance book called The Extraordinaries about a boy named Nick who has an obsession with superheroes that protect his city (he writes fanfiction about them), his bisexual best friend Seth (who may or may not be the love of his life), their two friends Jazz and Gibby, two queer girls in a healthy relationship.

I wanted to tell a story about finding a way to be extraordinary without having to actually *be* an Extraordinary. And I wanted it to be so fucking gay, it would shoot rainbows every time you opened it.

I wanted to do something different with this book.

So I got an agent. And Deidre Knight went ALL OUT for me. She is amazing.

Which leads to this:

The Extraordinaries was sold in a huge three book deal last week to Tor Teen. It was then sold *again* in a similar deal to Hodder & Stoughton in the UK.

This is the biggest thing that's ever happened to me. And I couldn't be more thrilled. To everyone who has supported my work in the last near seven (!!) years, I say thank you. You helped to make this possible.
