I didn't trust amazon, but I trusted Waterstone's and the publisher's site :'(

It may not be the publisher's deliberate fault. We all know the reason why this is taking so long.Scott may have overestimated his own ability to finish writing and the publisher has been caught out.

Sure, I understand that, but I thought that being only 3 months away, they would know if they could or couldn't do it.

*hugs for Scott* hang in there!

The publishers were as guilty as anyone else about mentioning incorrect release dates for The Republic of Thieves.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Well according to Gollancz the book is going to be released in September.  I don't know if that release time is valid for both US and UK but it appears the book is done and on its way.

Does it? To me, it just looks like another deadline. I won't believe it until two months before the date and they're still holding firm.

Also, why hasn't Scott Lynch posted anything about he's excited that the book is finally finished? All these other authors I follow love to tell their fans and give updates on the book.

This is a new announcement dated yesterday, so I am tempted to hope and believe.

Scott's blog is now a bit erratic and after a long post about Hugo quarrels I have stopped reading.

Yes, I don't trust amazon much either, but if Waterstone's got it there I assumed it meant they had plans for orders, etc.

Yes you right. Agreed with you.

Latest from Scott:

"Hello, everyone–

As you’ve probably noticed, retailers have been doing funny things with pre-orders of THE THORN OF EMBERLAIN, and the reason for that is because, despite all our hopes and the heroic patience of my publishers, we’re not going to make the expected September release date.

I am incredibly sorry about this, and I want it to be understood that there’s nobody to blame but me. In addition to the expected obstacles, I severely complicated my life this year by moving. The process of seeking a mortgage, securing a house, and moving across half a continent (although it was necessary, and has been mostly joyful) has eaten months of my time and made it very difficult to recover lost ground on several projects. Oh– Elizabeth Bear and I are getting married, too. Another real joy, but it’s eating spare time like you wouldn’t believe.

We are trying very hard to ensure none of this messes up my planned appearances for the rest of the year (I’ll still be at Worldcon, and in the UK in September, and at IceCon in October).

The release date information in retailer databases is going to do goofy things for a few weeks, because that’s just the way these things work, and there really isn’t anything we can do about it. Please ignore any date you see for the time being. Have a little patience, and we’ll and we’ll have another update soon."
