From Mod R:
From our Montlake Editor: Congratulations, Ilona and Gordon! What a way to end the first day on preorder!
We have never before hit #8 overall on kind. #18? Yes. But no #8. That is a lot of copies. A lot.
Me last night, sending email to BFF Jeanine, “The power of Amazon.”
Me, this morning after the phone call with our agent: Hey, honey?
Me: Apparently, it’s not Amazon that put us to #8. They haven’t really pushed it yet. The cover is still not up. So it’s not Amazon. It’s BDH.
You are so awesome. A ten year break before books and it’s #8.
Some things from Mod R’s list of questions.
Is Fated Blades the Release Schedule “novella to be named this fall”? Yes, release schedule updated.
Is the paperback release really in February 2022? Yes, as of now. It may change, it may not. Because the print is kind of a last minute addition, things are a bit in the air.
On Amazon India it does not appear in the listings when searched for Fated Blades Ilona Andrews. Is this still a thing? Can anyone confirm that it’s a thing and if it is, please tell me and I will get it fixed.
When the audio appears, will it be as a pre-order or straight up buy link? I do not know. I know that every effort will be made for simultaneous release with the ebook.
Can they have a countdown widget on the website, please? Done: https://ilona-andrews.com/
Will it preclude a collector edition coming out eventually with more of Louisa’s art? What if it sells really well, will the Amazon publishers consider it then? But what if it sells REALLY really well? Eeehhh… I don’t know. Let me ask.
Is it better to buy or KU? Whatever is your favorite. We get paid in both cases. 🙂
What are the previous books in the series? Silent Blade and Silver Shark. They are available separately or as a bundled edition.
Are Kid 1 and bf home safe? Yes, thank you for asking. They ended up staying a couple of extra days and then Kid 1 and Kid 2 had a spectacular fight over the phone on Kid’1 way back over nothing, which I refused to referee since I was trying to get the Fated Blades post up. ::sigh:: Parenting. Not for the faint of heart. They are good now.
Kid 1 brought me candy from South Padre. 🙂
