I have given up. No news, no information from the writer, no book. Time to move on.

This rots! This series is one of my favorites! Every few days I check to see if it is available yet!

Bibliographic listings are usually put out as soon as the publisher can, in order to get the interest started. Unfortunately, ISBN and Page number assignments do not in any way equate to the book being close to ready. They are typically estimated very far ahead based on how long the author expects the book to be when they are nearing the end of the first draft. Because of the flexibility offered by modern publishing methods, as long as they don't guess too low, the publisher can do a pretty good job of meeting the page count even if the author's guess was off by a few thousand words. The only specific information I can offer is that Penguin (Canada) no longer lists the ISBN as valid, which means it is not _likely_ a delay, but rather a title cancellation from their point of view.

I think Ash is right; there probably is a legal reason for the canceled publication. But that being the case, it may be a good sign that the author is not commenting on the issue. Her silence would indicate that the case is not resolved so there is still hope that the book will eventually be released.

Amazon cancelled my long-standing order for "Shadows Past" and listed the cancelled publication as the reason. They said that there is no expected publication date. When a book has already been listed with the page numbers and ISBN# it must have been ready for release. If ROC doesn't want it they should release it back to the author! All of Lorna Freeman's fans are waiting! (VERY impatiently too!) I've waited since book 2 for this and to think that over some legal-ese it is to be mothballed is extremely disappointing. I can't imagine why else they would cancel something so promising.

I'm frustrated with the wait, but I can think of about ten reasons why people couldn't/wouldn't comment... most of them legal. Ah well - I like her enough to give her the benefit of the doubt, so I'll be keeping an eye out for her next book. ^_^

Well, such much for that idea. I guess we may never know what happened to the third book. Ah well, life goes on....

I emailed Wendy over amonth ago, and received the same reply. I haven't heard anything since then.

OK, I'm trying the 'back door' approach. I emailed Wendy Duren and she replied back that she has forwarded my email to Lorna. That was the best idea I could come up with.

I'm at the point where if my interest in this product has no more meaning than this, I'm not interested anymore. Even a lame excuse would have been better. Sorry, Roc, but you just lost a promising writer a reader.
