Im interested in Conn Iggulden's upcoming novel about the Wars of the Roses. But so far there is only a UK release date (Oct 2013).

Genie - Book Depository has it for preorder at $17.20 and out in 96 days (Oct 10, 2013). Title is Wars of the Roses:Stormbird #9780718159849. Couldn't find it on AZN USA or here at PBS. I'll bet that's going to be a good one!!!!!

I saw that @Jeanne. Im just not sure how accurate it is since the description reads paperback and its the hardcover thats coming out in October. Plus, since i wrote this note earlier today, i heard from EC on HFO that the opening is a bit of a dog. Heres what she daid: "I don't, but I have the UK copy at the moment courtesy of Vine. It opens with Edward I's mistress sweating buckets as she single-handedly dresses the close to death king in his armour with no one else in attendance even though Edward is almost at his last gasp - finished one book this lunchtime and cracked this open over my last swallows of tea. Hmmmm, I thought."
