by Julia Spencer-Fleming has been advertised on her website as having a release date of "fall '09 or spring '10".  I just checked Amazon and it has a release date of February 1, 2012!!!!!  What's up with that?  Does anyone have any different information?

Okay.  Not hyperventilating anymore.  SYKM as a release date of April 13, 2010.  That's better.

It still makes me wonder though...which site is correct?  Does Amazon know something that SYKM doesn't or is two years out just an automatic default on the Amazon system.

Hmmm....

I saw the same thing....after I finished gasping for air, I decided that Amazon must be incorrect.  Earlier it was listed as April, 2010.  Perhaps there is a glich...

 

Her website says "Fall 2009/Winter 2010"  as the release date.  Perhaps it is now early spring??? Borders.com also lists April 13, 2010....

I can beat that - one of the books on my wish list is being published in 2025 according to Amazon.  Now I know that is wrong.  I sure don't want to wait 15 years to get a book!  :-)

Amazon often has erroneous information on book releases - not sure why, but I've noticed it several times.

I just got an e-mail from Julia Spencer-Fleming.  We have another year to wait for  "One Was A Soldier".  **sigh**  It won't be released until spring of 2011.  She said that she is already working on the next book and will try to have it complete within the year.
