In other good news, the hardcover edition of EOLYN is now available for purchase through the following links:
EOLYN on Amazon
EOLYN on Amazon.uk
EOLYN on Amazon.canada
The novel will be available soon in paperback and electronic format for Kindle and Nook, but if you're looking for a new volume to grace your bookshelf, consider purchasing EOLYN in hardcover. It's beautiful. To give you an idea, here's what it looks like on my bookshelf:
