Heart Search Is OUT!

PhotobucketHeart Search is out -- reports of it captured. ;) And, in the spirit of images of the heroes/heroines, here's Laev and Nivea Sunflower (ex), and Camellia Darjeeling (HeartMate).



Naturally, I'm nervous and hoping you all like it! Good reading in whatever world you're visiting!

It's out! Where? I can't wait to read it! Maybe Borders will still ship it. Another pre-order I made there shipped today.

So, Nivea is an "ex." I guess that means Laev got a divorce. Poor Laev! He was so excited when he thought he found his Heart Mate. He was such a good kid, especially the way he manned up after the incident with D'Holly.

Zipped over to BN.com and it also said "pre-order August 2" Bummer. Oh, well, I guess I'll finish Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden's Ghost Story.

Something to look forward to.

On UK's amazon the U.S. edition (don't even ask about a British one!) is on pre-order for 22nd September! The horror! Sooooo unfair.

I'm looking forward to it. I've preordered the Kindle version, so I guess I'll get it on the 3rd (I'm in New Zealand so it feels like I have to wait an extra day!)

Hmmm. Waldenbooks is part of Borders, which might mean it's in stock and my pre-order might be shipped. *crosses fingers*

Oh! Just want to share... There's extremely positive buzz about Heart Search. One reviewer said the series just gets "better and better." I'm excited!

Yes, we ebook readers have to wait until midnight Tuesday of new releases...Anna, thanks for letting me know, though that 2 stars on bn.com is bothering me. I think someone got it on netgalley and thought it was Urban Fantasy and disliked it. **shrugging** who knows. Or I pushed someone's hot buttons, if that's the case then I'm ok with the 2 stars.

I found my copy at Borders last week and was told it had been out for a week before that. I was really nervous because of Borders closing that I might not be able to find it. Maybe it hit the store early because of the closing? Anyway, I really enjoyed it, some interesting new story lines opening up in the future (?) maybe??? that I can't wait to see what happens. Already guessing what might be happening to Anten Moss or rather, who his heart mate is. I really like what you are doing with this series.

Got mine today at my B&N store (where I just so happen to work). I always tell customers "We're supposed to get the book 'on or about' the release date" if there isn't a strict you-the-bookseller-will-die-and-your-store-will-be-forced-to-close-if-you-release-this-early date. Just wanted to let you know that I have it in my grubby hands and am so happy - now, please, write faster. :)

Yay! Good news! Borders has shipped my pre-order. Heart Search is on it's way. What a relief!

Finished reading it today (Aug 3) and the reviewr who said, "it keeps getting better and better," hit it dead on. This is fantastic! Don't know who gave you 2 stars, but they obviously were not reading your book! This, is by far, IMHO, your best yet! Thanks for the fantastic read!

Wow, Pat, obviously this particular story landed straight in your expectations. LOL. Thanks for the lovely comment.

Read Heart Search yesterday. I'm not sure whether or not I would say it is your "best", I'd have to re-read everything to decide! But I would definitely say it is ONE of your best! I really loved the way you developed the relationship, and found Laev and Camellia to both be very interesting, sympathetic, and believable characters. I had to stay up to re-read the book immediately.
I might need to re-read it again tonight.
