... At this point I'd be willing to forgo that in favor of just a relase date. I just want the book already.

I totally understand all the life obstacles Jim faced. I was just hoping for some more urgency to get Peace Talks out. It feels like they're dragging their feet.

I'm also not as forgiving at this point of creators stringing fans along since I've been burned by basically all my major fandoms right now. Dresden Files is the only one left standing now, and that's probably another part of why this endless teasing bothers me so much. I can't stand it when people are stringing me along.

End of 2019 seemed possible as a release time for Peace Talks when it was finished. Maybe now they're going for end of 2020? Maybe I should just forget how much I want to read this and move on with my life, picking up future books when (and if?) they come out?

I'm just tired of this endless anticipation. The teasing is making me apathetic.

At this point, I don't think it's still Jim; not any of it since "The End" tweet.  It's the publisher.  Jim (or Prescielle, or other "insider" sorts) are giving info when/as they get it, as they are allowed to release it.  But the publisher is in the drjvers' seat at this point, and the next book is coming out when they decide; just info about the release is coming out when they decide.

I saw some suggestions that maybe Penguin is trying to fit the release into their schedule so that this doesn't cannibalize other lines' sales, nor those lines cannibalize PT.  They may have quarterly revenues they want to balance.  There may be a prior commitment by Marsters, in conflict with recording the audiobook, and they're trying to coordinate that.   Etc etc etc.

Agreed. I tried to think about the release from a money making point of view, though I admit, I don't really have a clue, just what I think.
October would have been good for selling.
In January people still read their Christmas books (maybe even bring them back to the stores, if they are not interested in reading them) and maybe won't look out for new ones, except us fans, but there may be new readers/buyers that go into bookstores or browse through the internet in search of new stories. I wouldn't do that in January, because I would have to wait for my finances to recover. That would happen in February at the earliest point. There is nothing else in February. Most people will have read their December books and be ready to buy new ones.

So I think, we might have to wait at least until February. And maybe longer, if it is true that they wait for the audio release.

I thought Jim had mentioned at an event that the publisher was really eager to get the book out ASAP once it was done. Its been a while so i don't remember which con panel it was that he said this.

The good news is I've had more time for my reread. The bad bews is I'm about halfway through Changes and there's no info.

And I hope, reddit is correct. Haven't reddit myself. But I hope "VERY soon" is a lot sooner than the "couple of weeks" turned out (being 5 months by now).
Though I think we can agree, that "VERY soon" sounds a lot sooner than "soon".   ???

Apparently the goddess said that it will be announced before Christmas, so soon enough for me.
