The manuscript for When Maidens Mourn is finished and sitting in my editor's inbox, ready for her to open on Monday morning.

I have a bunch of interviews lined up this week that I'll be posting, but at the moment I am exhausted and in serious need of sleep! Night all.

Congrats... hope you get a good night's sleep.

Rachel Walsh said...

Congratulations!!! Hope you get a well-deserved rest - and I'm rubbing my hands with glee, knowing my next Sebastian fix is edging ever closer ... :-)

Charles Gramlich said...

Hurray. I'm in a hurry to read it.

Barnes & Noble shipped "Where Shadows Dance" to my home this past week. I just finished reading it last night and really enjoyed the book. I especially liked the interactions between the two main characters.

I can't believe that I have to wait another year for the next installment. I'm hooked on this series.

Dana said...

Congratulations! That must feel so good. As a fan - thank you for all your hard work!

Steve Malley said...

Congratulations! Can't wait... :)

Firefly said...

Congratulations!!! Sleep well. Cheers

I'm SO envious of everyone who received their copies of Shadows over the weekend. I'm having to wait for a hard drop date since I ordered through my local indie because I wanted to buy through them.

So I spent the weekend reading THE PARIS WIFE (fabulous, for anyone looking for a rec) and waiting.

Congrats, Candy, on finishing Maidens! Sleep! You've earned it!

Pax Deux said...

Yeah! Good for you and us :-) Still waiting for my copy of Shadows, thought I ordered it through Amazon, grr.

I am very jealous of everyone who has already received their copies. I will probably stay up all night reading my copy when I get it- like I did with What Remains of Heaven. The books are fabulous and I really enjoy them. Congrats on finishing Number 7 and go do something fun for yourself- you deserve it!

Chen said...

Brava!! Sleep well.

On a sad note, I too am finished my my "Where Shadows Dance" and now I go thru the loooong wait for the next book. I love the developing relationship between Sebastian and Hero!

nana said...

Woot!! that's fantastic!! another Sebastian St Cyr to come for sure!! *happy dance*
If I remember well you said Kat will have a bigger role/presence in this one than in the 2-3 previous ones, is that right? (as long as it's not a bad thing for my devlin/hero love, I'm happy for her :))

I bought "where shadows dance" on Amazon but I have to wait TWO WEEKS to get it here *pouts* I tried to buy too the ebook but apparently it's not available with my country (france), I'm crushed, I soooo want to read it right now!!!:) I'm totally jealous of everyone reading it now :)

congrats again for a new book finished, I'm totally in love with this series & you're a great & prolific author!! <3

Congratulations. I just picked up "Where Shadows Dance" this morning at Barnes & Noble. I started reading it on my lunch break-- I don't want to put it down! However my boss would not appreciate it if I didn't get back to work.

I can't wait to read "When Maidens Mourn". Thanks for writing another book in the series.

cs harris said...

Thanks, Liz. I actually went to bed and read. Haven't read a book in weeks.

Rachel, thanks. This one is I think scheduled for next March.

Charles, I hope you enjoy it!

Jes, Yes, B&N were naughty boys. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it.

Dana, thanks. This was one deadline I really pushed.

cs harris said...

Steve, I hope you enjoy it.

Firefly, thank you. I told my husband he needs to buy me a lobster dinner this week end. I'm going to buy him a bottle of wine; he deserves it.

Barbara, thanks. I'm a big believer in supporting independent bookstores. Maybe with Borders closing, more will survive--not that I am happy about seeing Borders close.

Pax Deux, Amazon is good about observing release dates.

Anon, thank you.

Chen, does it help if I tell you that book #8 is slated to be released about 8 months after Maidens?

cs harris said...

Nana, Thank you. I have heard that ebooks don't sell outside of certain areas. France never has bought the series.

Jane, glad to hear you're enjoying it.

Chen said...

8mos between book 7 and 8? Do I hear 5mos? - LOL!!

I'll take the 8mos because I have a love/hate relationship with the Sebastian series. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE reading it and I hate that I go thru each book so fast. :-)
