Oh, Happy Day!

Last March (7 months ago) I purchased a hardcover copy of Blackout, Connie Willis’s new novel.  Please note – I rarely purchase hardcover books.  I don’t like holding them, and I usually have so much to read that I can wait for the paperback.  (Is this a terrible thing for an aspiring writer to say?)

Anyway.  Seven months ago, I saw the book at Potlach 19, an SF convention in Seattle, and I grabbed it.  I LOVE Connie Willis.  And, I loved the book.  I could not put it down.  When it ended in “TO BE CONTINUED” I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  What?!  What?!  I ran around the house yelling. 

So I have waited, patiently, 7 months.  The rest of the novel will be published tomorrow – and guess what.

I opened my Sony ebook store and there it was, electronic copy for sale today, tonight, right now, and it’s downloading as I type.

Oh happy day – I’m off to read.

  2. Lee,
    Your site is so great! I listened to the chillout song- made me smile. Anyway I know the feeling of extreme anticipation. Hope the sequel is as good as you hope it should be.
