Why you can't order a copy of DOUBLE BLACK on Amazon. And where you can get one, instead.

It figures. My debut novel, DOUBLE BLACK: A SKI DIVA MYSTERY, comes out on January 5, and the publishing world goes insane.

Here's what's happening:

Amazon and Macmillan have disagreed over e-book pricing strategies, and Amazon has suspended the sale of all Macmillan titles — electronic and hardcopy versions alike — as a result. This includes books published by Henry Holt; Picador; Farrar, Straus and Giroux; and my publisher, St. Martin's Press.

That doesn't mean you can't get a copy at your favorite bookstore or other online sites, like BarnesandNoble.com or Indiebound. Better yet, you can order a signed copy through my favorite bookstore, Northshire Books in Manchester, VT.

I still have a few author events lined up, too, so stop by to buy a book, or just to say hi:

Friday, February 5, 3PM
The Book Nook, Ludlow, VT

Saturday, February 6, 3-6PM
Aspen East Ski Shop, Killington, VT

Saturday, February 13, 4PM
Passholders Party, Mount Snow Resort
West Dover, VT

Friday, February 19, 7PM
Phoenix Books, Essex, VT

Saturday, February 20, 11AM-1PM
Spruce Peak Ski Shop, Stowe Mountain Resort
Stowe, VT

Be sure to visit TheSkiDiva.com, an internet forum especially for women skiers, where women skiers can connect with one another to talk about everything and anything ski-related.

Technology truly is an inescapable aspect of our daily lives, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about almost every day.
