Once I was a girl who was special.
Now I am extraordinary.
And they will never stop hunting me.
The compelling follow-up to the bestselling ULTRAVIOLET, this psychological thriller will take your breath away...
-- Orchard Books (UK) blurb for QUICKSILVER by R.J. Anderson
I am happy to report that as of today, I turned in my last major revision of QUICKSILVER to my lovely UK and US editors. And after addressing their suggestions and those of my insightful beta-reading team, I am very pleased with the way the book has turned out. It gives me hope that readers of ULTRAVIOLET, and perhaps some new readers as well, will enjoy it too!
Unfortunately I also have some sad news to report, which is that the UK edition will not be coming out in November, as we'd originally hoped. Due to a succession of family health crises and other unforeseen delays, I was unable to finish editing the book in time for my publishers to get it ready for a 2012 publication date, which means that the paperback of QUICKSILVER will now be coming out in the UK in
January May 2013 instead. However, the North American hardcover publication date remains unchanged, so US and Canadian readers can look forward to seeing the book in March 2013.
I apologize to those who've been eagerly awaiting QUICKSILVER and are disappointed to have to wait
two six months longer! But these things happen sometimes, and I felt it was more important to give you a book I had really put my heart into writing and researching -- a book I could be proud of -- than to rush something out that wasn't my best work.
Thanks to all my readers for your patience and support! I can't wait for you to read this story, and I'm very excited to find out what you think of it.
