    Default Update on Dreamfever audiobook

    As soon as I read that audible was blaming the publisher for why Dreamfever is not available I called Karen (who is not even at home at the moment) who then in turn called Brilliance.

    Brilliance is aghast over this. They had no idea that there was a problem and it certainly wasn't because they didn't have the rights cleared. They have put a lot of time and effort into Dreamfever and were as excited about the release as you are. The last thing they want is for it to not be available to the fans. Dreamfever was sent out as a priority audiobook to their online retailers who had it on the 6th. We have no idea why they are saying it's the publishers fault, other then it's easier to blame someone else instead of saying what the problem really is.

    Brilliance is working frantically to try and find out what the problem is and are so sorry for the delay.

    Audiobookstand.com will have the audiobook up shortly.

    Default What about iTunes, Leiha?

    I can't find it on there either and was wondering if you had any ideas.
    Thanks,

    Hi Leila

    I know you guys are super busy, but do you know if ANY online stores are selling ebook or audiobook to overseas countries? I won't be receiving my hardcover for a week at least, being here in oz, and every site I've seen that has the ebook or audiobook say they don't have the rights to sell outside the US. I'm bugging them all (I think audible are sick of me, heh)

    Thanks for all your running around - you really do look after all us crazies :)

    I did email and ask about the ebooks but I haven't received any news about them. I'm sorry.

    Default Popping my head in very briefly before I have to go out and sign some stock

    to let you all know that I'm so sorry that this has happened with the audiobook!

    When I spoke with Eileen at Brilliance she told me all the audio files had been transmitted to the vendor(s) on August 6th. She was appalled that it was not available. The people at Brilliance have been as excited about this audiobook as we are. There's just been such tremendous energy and enthusiasm in house. Please don't shoot me, but I got mine this morning. I pre-ordered it from Amazon because I wasn't willing to wait for my author copies that sometimes don't come for a month. Yes--I paid for my own book because I was that desperate to hear Phil and Natalie narrating. Isn't that pathetic? LOL. I know how much you guys want it--I feel your pain, and we're working frantically to figure out what happened and how to fix it.

    My understanding is that one of the vendors transmits the files to the others, so one of them will have it first, and it will show up on iTunes some time after that.

    Leiha told me someone said that I hadn't given the vendors the rights. Nonsense. Those rights were sold to Brilliance long ago. I don't sell the rights to the distributors. Brilliance distributes to the distributors.

    I'm SO sorry to those of you that stayed up, waiting for the downloads and wasted time!

    We'll keep you posted as we learn more...

    I might be a little scarce over the next day or two, but I'm thinking we should probably schedule a chat....

    And lastly, get well soon, we love you.
