The Inheritance news roundup vol 2

I’ve probably forgot to post this here : Publisher’s Weekly gave a starred review for the Inheritance and Other Stories! More recently, the Australian Herald Sun published an article about Robin/Megan and the French Wikinews posted an interview done at Trolls&Legends in Belgium (try a translation).
Also a new addition to the appearances calendar, the Garfield Book Company in Tacoma, WA announced they’ve booked Robin to appear for a signing—the date is May 18th at 7pm.
It’s less than a week to the US publication of The Inheritance! Have you preordered your copy yet?
