By the way, it looks like there's some sort of slight delay on the The Chains that you Refuse launch. I'll let you know more when I hear from the publishers; no official word as yet.

In the mean time, Undertow has ground up on the shoals of the plot needing to make sense again. I can feel my brains busily spinning away in there, and there are lots of bits of information and Cool Plot Things I mean to get around to, but it hasn't yet clicked together into a satisfying pattern.

So it's kind of giving me one scene at a time with long pauses to thrash and contemplate between them. The book, in other words, is eating my head.

Which is good, because books are supposed to eat one's head, and this one has been making me chase it.

The nice thing about experience is that my reaction to this experience is no longer panic, but rather "Oh, no, here we go again."

a metric butt ton... how much is that in shitloads?
2.2 shitloads to the metric butt ton.
If the standard foot was derived from the length of King Henry I's feet -- I don't really want to know how the standard shitload was determined.
"How do you know he's a king?"
"He hasn't got shit all over him."
Oh, now, that's out of line. surprisingly, pinkness, and unpatented, at the very least, should be recognizable. I mean. Really.

Sorry to hear about the delay on the launch. Hope it's not too upsetting.

Glad to know it's not just us... wonder whether BEA had an impact...?

::taps foot impatiently ::
I don't know! horrorworld says they have it though, so maybe Tuesday?
clarifying: Night Shade says they have them.

So:

Well, Ingram doesn't have it yet either, so maybe it's the difference between receiving inventory directly from Nightshade and receiving it through a distributor (e.g. Diamond)?
