More Lover At Last excerpts and virtual signings
The latest news on the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by our resident guru, Decadence. Updated 2/6/2013: Dates edited.
Click here for a round-up of all BDB-related posts on Book Thingo.
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.
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:
