    From what I can tell, initial print runs are usually far smaller. One article I read said that 15,000-25,000 is considered to be good.

    Amazon UK now has 'Together' up for pre-order. They list a paperback that will be available but not a hardcover. The US listing shows a hardcover but no paperback.

    Finally got around to writing my review for the site where I got the ARC. No spoilers as long as you've read the description of the book.

    What’s the mark of a good book? For me, it’s when you’re still thinking about it days after you’ve finished it. You’ll meet a dozen people here, all with a shared purpose and destination but nothing else in common except their shared humanity. As the journey progresses, you’ll get to know them as they get to know each other and sometimes bond in surprising ways.

    I can only remember one other book I’ve read in the epistolary format but I very much like how this style is used to help the reader understand the characters, why they’re there, and why they want to do what they’re doing. You’ll experience this journey and these characters through journal entries, text messages, voice recordings, and emails between each other and the other people in the characters’ lives. It’s an effective and in-depth way to learn about each of them.

    In the end, I think it has a happy ending whether each achieved their purpose or not. Whichever way each character goes, it’s a satisfactory conclusion for them. I whole-heartedly recommend this book!

    Oh, I still bought a copy of that and the audiobook, too, because I wanted to hear Peter. And I'm sure I'll do the same for 'Together We Will Go'. Wonder if they'll do giveaways for the writing book? Inquiring minds...

    I'm surprised that things are happening so far out, too. But what I don't know about publishing is pretty much everything. There was a giveaway at Goodreads for 50 hard copies that I don't seem to have won, It wasn't a heist, I promise! It seems that there are places where you can actually request ARCs. So I did so. A friend turned me on to this and I'm not sure I'm free to let folks know the site but perhaps just knowing it exists might help. I would definitely keep an eye on Goodreads, as they had a few of those giveaways for "Becoming Superman".

    Your Intrepid Reporter has managed to snag an e-ARC of "Together We Will Go". My unspoiling thoughts:

    - This is like nothing we've seen from JMS before. And it's amazing.

    - Not an easy - or maybe I mean comfortable - read in a number of places.

    - Filled with wonderful, memorable characters.

    I love this one a lot. It was definitely a galley with several issues so I look forward to the final version which I still have pre-ordered.

    Oh, and JMS posted that the Kindle version is half price (at least in the US) right now at $12.99.

    It's very attractive. But to me, it looks more like a cozy mystery than anything. Not sure that fits the description.
