1. The ARCs for The Legend Thief were mailed last week and I expect them to arrive any day now. As soon as I get them, I will announce the winner (and possibly winners, depending on how many I get).
2. The release dates for the Return to Exile paperback and The Legend Thief hardcover have shifted to March. Why? I have no idea. Sadly, my editor joined the FBI back in May (yes, you heard right: the FBI) and I still don't have a new one. S&S is in the processes of hiring a new editor, at which point, I hope to get things straightened out. Stay tuned.
3. You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the nice things you've said about Return to Exile. Every time I see one of your comments, it brightens my day and makes me smile.
