ECHO's Release Date
Apparently it is now official: the U.S. release date for AN ECHO IN THE BONE will be Tuesday, September 22, 2009.

Unfortunately for those of you in the UK, it appears that the release date of ECHO in the UK is going to be considerably later than that. Here is what Diana had to say on Compuserve today:
What they [the publisher] _said_ is that the UK edition of the book would be released in Australia and New Zealand at about the same time as the US edition is published (it has to be, owing to some bizarre provision of Australian copyright law)--BUT that they didn't mean to release the at-home version _in_ the UK until March of 2010. I have no idea why this is, but that's what they've told me so far.I think this is really a shame, and makes no sense at all from a marketing standpoint. Why would they make UK readers wait a full six months for the book?
Comments? Reactions? (I can hear the howls of outrage from across the Atlantic already, and I don't blame you one bit!)
