I hit Newark Airport and turned on my phone to find an email from a book buyer for a Big Huge Honking Store. The email confirms that according to this buyer’s source at Hachette, the Evanovich/Cannell novel No Chance has ‘no chance’ of being published. The book has been canceled with no date for rescheduling.
Whoa. Dude. Wonder what happened? People who were looking forward to that book are going to be mighty bummed out.
UPDATED TO ADD:
Sarah at MediaBistro’s GalleyCat got the confirmation from Janet Evanovich, who cited scheduling problems. They still have an active partnership, says Evanovich, which should certainly soothe those who were looking forward to this book.
