Book 3 Release Information


Dear Friends:

This is probably the only time since I started connecting with you, my friends, on Facebook and Twitter that I have actually dreaded to post. As I have gotten to know you all on a more personal basis, it has made the idea of disappointing you so much harder to take. It was confirmed to me today that the release date for Fall For Me has been moved to February 26, 2013. Some of you have already emailed and commented on this today. The first two books in the Danvers series were self-published which meant I had complete control over every aspect. Fall For Me was not self-published, therefore, I have no control over the release dates or any other aspect of it. I was very upset when I found out about the change, mainly because I couldn’t stand to subject you to another delay. After speaking with my publisher at lengths, we both understand the problems that each has. The book sellers are upset about the e-book being released so far in advance of the print book. They feel that this is unfair to them and truthfully it is. Since this is the third book in the series, there is no way to push it ahead of the other two in print order. Since I self-published first, it is almost as if I did everything backwards in the process and my publisher is trying to handle getting the books to print and handling the process with the third book as best as they can. It has been a learning experience for all of us involved. I sincerely apologize for the disappointment and I hope that you will be patient for a little longer. Okay, now that the bad news is out of the way, let’s have some good news. My publisher has agreed to let me release the complete first chapter of Fall For Me and it’s up on my website now! http://sydneylandon.com/index.php/events/. Also, to pass the time until February, they are going to have some contests. I don’t have all of the details yet, but they are planning a contest on Goodreads where twenty-five people will actually win a copy of Fall For Me before it goes on sale! I will also start to release some advance chapters of the new book in a new series I am working on as well. So, my friends please don’t shoot the messenger. I think Fall For Me is my best book yet, and I so hope that you will agree in February that it was worth the wait. . ~~Love, Sydney

    I’m so gutted the book will be getting released later than planned. Only because I’ve finished the others and desperate to read the next!!!! Regardless of this, I will eagerly await its release as I can imagine it will be as great as the others.

  8. Anybody know if we can Pre order book 3

    Ur boks r fantastic and i lok forward to reading the next one in the Danvers series. All of the characters r funny and quirky. Great story deveopment. Keep up the great work.

    First off, I’d like to say Congratulations to one of my new favorite authors. From the moment I purchased and read the first couple of chapters of Weekends Required, I was HOOKED! I had to go check this fabulous author’s web site and see if she had anything else out. When I saw that there was a second book and that it was the ” In Your Face”, Suzy’s book, well lets just say i wasted no time getting my iPad over to purchase the ebook. Now I have finished the second and i’m dying to get my hands on the 3rd. I’m in love with this series. It’s very rare to come across a author who can captivate you and keep you that way thru a whole book. That your not finding yourself bord and wanting to read something else. That’s what I found most refreshing about these books. The characters are so believable and interesting. I guess relatable would be a better word. You put just enough information to inform. So that your readers are not stuck reading 3 chapters on describing something that should of only taken maybe a page or two. They kept me excited to turn the page and the story lines are so believable. I’m very much looking forward to your future stuff. Especially the Danvers Series. I can’t wait to read Beth’s book. Maybe then you will treat us to Ella’s maybe? One can only hope. Penguins Publishing is very lucky to be promoting such a fabulous author. So again, Congrats on the awesome news and keep up the great work. We will wait eagerly for each one. Cause you have captivated us from page one.
