publication dates, book six, arcs

In Australia/NZ, The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square will be coming out in March ’08, so within a month of the U.S. pub date. That’s a contractual thing, so you can be sure of it.

I have been getting a lot of email queries lately about Book Six. There is a link to a full post about pub dates, etc, in the right hand column.

Out of the blue I have one extra advance reading copy of Pajama Girls. Interested? Leave a comment to this post, and one winner will be drawn at random. But there are a couple restrictions you have to agree to (and which, by entering a comment, you are agreeing to): 1. You will not sell the arc before the pub date (02.14.08); 2. You will not publish any kind of summary or information about the novel, including plot and characterization — unless you are writing a review for a wider audience. In that case, please contact me first. And that’s it.

So toss away. I’ll pull a name next Monday.
