Sorry, but it’s not my fault honest

This morning I had occasion to refer to Waterstone’s website. To my surprise, I found that they are offering, for delivery on December 9, something they are calling Untitled Primavera. I was even able to put a copy in my shopping cart, although I wasn’t daft enough to pay for it.

For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no such publication on that date; the third Primavera Blackstone novel is scheduled currently for publication in January 2012. My apologies to anyone who was planning to give this book as a  Christmas present. Not that the howler had anything to do with me, but I’m embarrassed nonetheless, that such a mistake was made in the first place, (whether it was by Waterstone or my publisher I know not) and that it remains uncorrected so close to the non-existent publication date.

For the record, the next QJ publications are A Rush of Blood, in paperback, next February and The Loner, a brand new stand-alone novel, in hardback, £12.99, next March.

    Och Aye

    Another Skinner tale completed – en route to Tampa – and again that feeling of, how can I put it, “Oh bugger – it’s finished”

    Enjoyed it immensely – even the toes! (well maybe “enjoyed” is a bit strong for the toes – I’m not a perve!)

    I was therefore delighted to read that the next Skinner is already on the way – although I am also looking forward to the new novel.

    I’m a Mount Florida guy myself, but my Scottish visits are mostly to Edinburgh nowadays so I enjoy the flavour of Scotland from Skinner’s merry band.

    Awrabest awratime

    The 9 December version of untitled primavera is still listed at Amazon UK. Got my hopes right up.

      Amazon is a difficult beast to control. It takes them a hell of a lot longer to sort out a mistake than it does to make it.
