Surely then we have to postpone this to August, and then do Pratchett in April, Kitschies in May, and just choose June and July themes closer to the time?

Will do. Though, may do September (the book releases mid August). Hopefully everyone is OK with that, and again, sorry :(

Totally okay. And absolutely not your fault.

Ah you guys were just too late, it was taken off Amazon on March 22nd folllowing the publication deal. It is back on now but for £9.99.

I read it a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it, I'm sure you all will as well!

I would like to read this but I am not seeing a digital version. :-\
Tied up and twisted; gnarled and knotted with wrinkles; haggardly firm and unyielding; his eyes glowing like coals, that still glow in the ashes of ruin; untottering Ahab stood forth in the clearness of the morn; lifting his splintered helmet of a brow to the fair girl's forehead of heaven.

I'm guessing that you are in the US. That's why we are postponing the read because the US has no available version (as I found out when I went to buy it). It was originally self published, but is being published in August with Hodder and Stoughton. They made an ebook version available in the UK now (before the official release), but the US has to wait. They took the self published ebook down between running the poll (it was there initially) and now.    :-\

It will come eventually though  ;D

Any confirmation is this will be good to go for September now?

It showed back on US Amazon for the Kindle and I went ahead and bought it. I think we'll probably be good, but want to double check publication dates and don't have time to do so right now.

Honestly as long as the ebook remains available, I am fine with it right now. I know we typically require a physical release, but I'm willing to make an acceptation.

I got the e-book of this just before it was decided to push it back a few months. I'm looking forward to this one!  :)

Hi, everyone!

Becky's UK publisher, Anne, here. Just to clear things up: the ebook is currently available in the UK and will be published in hardback on 8 August. The US ebook will become available through Long Way's US publisher in August, though I don't know the exact date, and they'll be publishing their hardback edition a few months later.

We're all incredibly excited to see how much you have been enjoying Long Way!

Thank you!

The US Kindle version is actually available now for some reason (I know when I checked previously it was planned for August). I  am going to go ahead and green light this for September. There is always Book Depository for physical copies. I know normally we try to make sure things are released in the US and the UK, but we made an exception for this in the initial voting when it was still ebook only, and I am going to carry that through to this round.

Is this definitely the September read? What's the August read?  :)
