I got an email from Barnes & Noble that Patience (by Lisa Valdez) is FINALLY being shipped to me.  It better be good after the long wait!  If its even 1/2 as good as Passion, it will be worth it.

It didn't work for me either. I even went directly to the website and it still didn't work. I went to her website and she has this posted.

Dearest Readers,

It has come to my attention that some retailers are advertising that PATIENCE is being released this month. This is not the case. As soon as I have a release date, I will post it.

I will say that on December 15th I turned in all but the final three chapters of PATIENCE. Those chapters will be going in this month. The day they are all in, I will post.

Until then, I'm wishing you a very Happy New Year--may it be full of new blessings and new hope...

All the best,
Lisa

Well something is up with the All About Romance blog today, was working yesterday.  The post is still in my Google Reader and here's part of what it says, and a note that today Valdez updated her site today somewhat:

 "I received confirmation from Ms. Valdez’s publisher that she does not have a release coming out today. Further, I have been informed that Lisa Valdez’s book “currently is not scheduled for publication.” Given that Ms. Valdez’s website lists her contact information as “being updated”, things are not looking good here. Hopefully, the situation will change, but unless I hear something further from Ms. Valdez, I don’t think I’ll be feeling too optimistic?"

It worked for me earlier too.  Haven't tried again, but yeah, what Pammy said.  I saw that too.  I'm ready to drop it from my WL.  It'd probably gross me out anyway, and after all of the delays & silliness, I'd definitely be angry if I bought it:P

i think the link no longer worked b/c they updated the post and that probably changed t5he url.

I dropped PATIENCE from my WL 2 yrs ago. That was how sure then that the whole thing was effed out andf I didnt want to deal. I was like 54 at that time

I didn't realize there has been that long of a wait for the book.  Read the first one not too long ago and added this one to my WL after.  My WL isn't maxed out so I will leave it on there.

Any updates on a pub date for Patience?  This author is really testing my patience!

I pulled it off of my WL, it got so annoying trying to figure out WTH is going on with it.  At this point, I don't even care if it does get released this year or not.  Not buying it, nuh-uh, no way:P

I guess B&N lied.  They said it was being shipped; then they cancelled the order!

Both B&N and Amazon say it will be pubished April 6.  Yay.  Mine's on order, but for some strange reason, Amazon has only the e-book version.

I am like Kim, I removed it from my WL.  I will eventually buy it........or not.......I seem to have lost interest in being patient with this author.  It is bad enough to wait for a book by Madeline Hunter or Elizabeth Hoyt.  But at least they seem to poop one out every year or so!

Actually, I did order from B&N.  Made a mistake in previous post.  So others did get theirs?  Yay!  The book was aptly named.  It did test my PATIENCE.  Hopefully, the next one won't take as long!

Be sure to let us know what you think about this book.  I expect a review worthy of a 2-3 YEAR wait! ;)
