Demand your On Demand

Just a quick update on the situation with the global release of On Demand - it isn't happening.

That is, there are no plans to distribute it overseas, beyond the usual methods of buying online and paying shedloads for shipping. Oh, hang on, though! You don't need to pay shedloads for shipping - you don't need to pay anything at all for shipping if you order from The Book Depository. They have it listed at a bargain price and that £4.78 is ALL you will pay if you order from them.

Furthermore, if you are one of those lucky people with a Kindle, you can buy it here.

My apologies to everyone who was led by me to believe that the book would be available outside the UK. I had no reason, until now, to think that my book would be treated differently to every other Black Lace book ever published. But apparently, I'm special. Aww.

I've had some high times in Germany and many fond memories of the country, so I am particularly delighted to find out that On Demand is going to be translated into German. I don't envy the translator, mind you - it is highly idiomatic, especially the chapters in Sophie's voice, so they'll have their work cut out for them. All the same, I'm chuffed to nuts (what's that in German?).

It's almost enough to make me dig out my A-Level German oral notes. I picked as my subject King Ludwig II ('The Mad') of Bavaria. What a guy he was! A big highlight of my life was getting to visit one of his legendary Schlosses - not the one on all the old chocolate boxes, but the (ever so slightly) more restrained Herrenchiemsee.

There's still time (barely) for those of you who have been remiss in your Valentine duties to pick up the free gift from Xcite - three stories, gratis and for nothing. Details here, lovers!

Are You a Statesperson?

By which I mean, do you reside in the USA, or do you have a mailing address in that fair territory? If so, and you are happy to provide a review on Amazon.com in return for a free forthcoming anthology of D/s (M/f) stories, email me at JustineElyot@gmail.com and I'll sort it out for you.

Good news about On Demand is that it was most favourably reviewed at the Erotica Readers and Writers Association by Ashley Lister who describes it as 'relentlessly rude and continually cheerful' (has he met me??) and 'compelling erotic fiction'. Full review right here.

Less good news about On Demand is that I still have no idea when, if ever, it will be properly available at amazon.com. And I have nobody to ask either.
