I've ordered Thorn of Emberlain a month ago from German Amazon and it still hasn't been dispatched. Luckily, I'm well stocked on reading material at the moment so it's not that big of a deal but still...

If you get the book I'll be impressed, as it hasn't been finished yet.

I haven't followed news regarding the book, but it said on Amazon it will be available after some date (I don't remember the exact date but it was around September 20th) and I ordered it after that date. Said nothing of pre-order or anything.

Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait.

I was disappointed too. ;)

I've actually been listening to Lies on audio while driving around...it's been glorious and a balm to waiting...

Depending on your reading pace, you can easily wait until the end of this year to start your re-read. The book will only come out sometime next year, it has not been scheduled yet.

I would suggest starting the reread once Thorn of Emberlain is actually on shelves.

Anonymous asked: Hi Scott! MAZEL TOV on getting married!! I'm so happy for you both. Also mazel tov on getting more cats :-) great life choices all round. Um, I was just wondering what stage Thorn is at? Not 'when will it be published' as I know that's not up to you, and not 'omg how much longer??!11' because that's a jerk thing to ask. Just - are you writing the first draft? Revising it post-editorial-feedback? Checking copyedits? Just curious :-)

THORN needs an ending written (the ending is outlined in depth, just not yet written) and some targeted rewrites in three or four specific areas, based on vexing but extremely astute criticism from my agent, my genius wife, and a trusted friend. This is my primary job for December.

I don't remember Lynch saying that he had turned the book in. Do you have a link?

By the way, if anyone wants to read something similar to the series while waiting for the next book, I recommend IT TAKES A THIEF TO CATCH A SUNRISE by Rob Hayes.

That's a really entertaining fantasy thief series with lots and lots of cons.

Fuck I'm currently in that situation where I'm starving for more books and only this one can sate my hunger.... 

Need to broaden your palette my friend.

Lots of good stuff out there.  After RoT, Lynch moved off my "OMG MUST READ NOW LIST" sadly.  Liked the book, but after waiting so long it left me unfulfilled.

No audio version. Sadness.
