Lover at Last has come in at 592 pages long and 199,807 words, 650 words longer than Lover Reborn. It’s been a tough road, with J. R. Ward’s hard drive getting destroyed, erasing fifty pages of the story, and then restored by a techie Marine and a data retrieval specialist. In the lead-up to Lover at Last’s release in March, Ward has been posting quotes on her Facebook page:

Blay walks past Qhuinn like he doesn’t exist Qhuinn prepares for death “…where upon Layla grows a set” A humble Qhuinn kisses Blay, but it’s not their first hook-up of the book Qhuinn kissing Blay (Blay’s POV) Blay finds out that Qhuinn attacked Saxton Layla acknowledging the important things in life I don’t know what it relates to, but she’s also asked Brazilian readers how a granddaughter would respectfully refer to her grandmother.

Virtual Signings

There will be five virtual signings this year, with Lover Awakened already closed. The business only orders a finite number of books and once that runs out, that’s it, no more. It’s unconfirmed, but I suspect she signs around 2000 copies of each book. The signings typically open around a month prior to the release date when they are sent out, last around a week, and only offer hardcovers. Here are the dates so far of the other virtual signings in Australian EST: Lover At Last  Opening for preorder: January 29, 2013 at 12:30am (January 28, 2013 at 8:30am US EST) Release: March 26, 2013 The open date has been pushed back a day because Team Ward has negotiated better international postage rates, but they take effect on the 29th, our time. Lover Revealed Opening for preorder: June 3, 2013 at 10:30pm (June 3, 2013 at 8:30am US EST) Release: July 2, 2013 Possession: Fallen Angels Book #5 Opening for preorder: August 25, 2013 at 10:30pm (August 25, 2013 at 8:30am US EST) Release: October 1, 2013 Lover Unbound Opening for preorder: October 6, 2013 at 11:30pm (October 6, 2013 at 8:30am US EST) Release: November 5, 2013 For more info or to place an order, go to www.wardenvs.com

Decadence's fascination with vampires can be blamed on Anne Rice and although she reads urban fantasy, historical romance, romantica and crime, her first and undying love is paranormal romance. She works in a bookstore and gets no sympathy for the sheer volume of work she brings home, not to mention the TBR mountain that will never be surmounted. Her guilty pleasures include (in no particular order) chocolate, pizza, sleeping in and Alexander Skarsgard and she is a final assessment away from holding a full pistol licence.

    The Lover At Last virtual signing opened an hour early. I signed in 15-30 minutes early and preordered my copy already. There are certainly more international shipping options, but I wouldn’t say they were cheaper, unless they were too expensive to offer before.

    Well, it’s a record. The virtual signing closed in less than 12 hours! Ward will try to get more books and if she does, we’ll let you know. I thought I was being a bit anal when I stayed up last night to order, but nope.

What do you think?
