I read somewhere.....don't remember where now....but, that the newest book by Susan Wittig Albert,  is suppose to be titled   "The Tale Of Applebeck Orchard" and released in 2009.  I can't find any information on this .....including on the authors website.   Does anyone know anything about when her next book might be released??    There wasn't a link on the website where I could email the author directly to ask.  TIA

Yes, that is the name of the next Cottage Tales.  I haven't been able to find any info about it either.  It seems that she releases this series in the fall.  Anna W. (cafelady) contacted her several months ago as she was doing a book club and wanted to focus on the author.  Get in touch with Anna and ask her how she made contact.  Let us know!

I just checked out the first book in the series from the library this morning.  I know nothing about it!  I hope I enjoy it.

I looked on the various Web sites that Susan Wittig Albert maintains. One lists the publication date for The Tale of Applebeck Orchard to be September 2009; another says October 2009. I couldn't locate an ISBN number anywhere. Berkley (a division of Penguin Books) usually publishes her works, but I couldn't even find anything about this new book on the publisher's site.

I performed every search possible here at PBS, and finally did the advance search and used the ISBN feature (it did not work to search the isbn in the regular search). And guess what? I am now number 1 on the wishlist for this book! You all add it, too!!! Quick!

P.S. according to the PBS wishlist help faq's, *searching* for a books isbn sometimes will add it to their system? How does this work? The book is now listed in the system and was within ten seconds of my listing the isbn in the advance search!
