A reader asks, "What's going on with Allegiance? When will it be out?"

Currently Allegiance is at MGM awaiting final approval. Due to some personnel changes at MGM, there's been a delay on their end. I understand that it's currently being reviewed. It's not a content issue, just personnel changes at MGM causing a lag. As soon as Melissa and Amy get the changes back they'll turn them around and it will go to galleys. I'm guessing, and this is just a guess, that we're looking at a delay of 2 weeks or so, into mid July instead of the end of June. I'll let you guys know as soon as I know anything definite.

In the meantime, let's play a game! Name a character and I'll give you their first line of spoken dialogue in the book.

Got to go with Sheppard.
Jun. 3rd, 2011 05:36 pm (UTC)
Here you go!

"Rodney's still in the hands of the enemy. We're not sure what they did to him, but he looks like a Wraith, and he wasn't acting like he remembered he was on our side."

I'm sorry! Chuck isn't in Allegiance! Want to pick again?

Dr. Robinson, please.
Jun. 3rd, 2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
Not a very informative line, I admit!

“Dr. Lynn. Nice to see you. Care to join me?”
Jun. 3rd, 2011 05:56 pm (UTC)
Ember, please! :D

If Allegiance will be delayed then at least it'll come out in time for my vacation and I can read it while lying in the sun. :)
Jun. 3rd, 2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
Ember then!

*I told them I needed diagnostics — that we had some to spare, and it would make the work go faster. They won’t miss me for an hour yet. McKay — he’s told them nothing.*
Jun. 3rd, 2011 06:05 pm (UTC)
Ronon please :)
Jun. 3rd, 2011 06:23 pm (UTC)
Here you go!

"He had a Wraith feeding hand. How is that good?"
Jun. 3rd, 2011 06:43 pm (UTC)
Quicksilver please!

That's a bummer with the delay. Any cover art yet?
Jun. 3rd, 2011 06:54 pm (UTC)
I don't have the cover art yet. As soon as I do I'll put it up. I'm looking forward to it a lot!

Here's Quicksilver -- not very informative, I'm afraid!

*Who are you? She is missing, your queen.*

Since nobody's asked yet, how about Teyla? :)

From the plot recap discussion!

"He was Wraith. If I had not known his face, I would not have believed he was anything else."
Jun. 3rd, 2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
... and Bonewhite?
Jun. 3rd, 2011 09:06 pm (UTC)
Bonewhite for you! As fallout from the end of The Lost continues....

*Did you honestly expect otherwise? And what are we to do about it?*

Ok! This is Wintersun, one of Queen Death's clevermen.

*My queen. Forgive me if I press you, but I believe we must make a decision soon. *I am not Dust. I cannot pretend that this — this creature, this creation — that it is a man and my brother, as Dust did. Better to end this farce, and take what information we can from him.*

Since somebody has beaten me to asking for Sheppard I'm going to go with Lorne. :D
Jun. 3rd, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Lorne it is! In which he runs into an old friend newly arrived in Atlantis.

“Cadman. I hear it’s Captain now. Congrats. How’s Earth?”
Jun. 3rd, 2011 08:35 pm (UTC)
Guide, of course, while I sulk about the delay. *sigh*
Jun. 3rd, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Of course! In which Guide and Bonewhite are having a conversation about the fallout from the lost, same conversation as Bonewhite above.

*I thought if I handed them Death’s hive powered down and feeding, they would be able to recover McKay and destroy it. They’ve been extremely efficient at such things before. Which makes our position even more awkward.*

how about jeannie miller
Jun. 4th, 2011 10:02 am (UTC)
Ok! Not a very informative first line, though. Jeannie on her way out on the Daedalus, with the new archaeologist, Dr. Lynn, who is also on his way out.

“Is this seat taken?”
Jun. 4th, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
Was John's college friend Mel going to be in Allegiance? Or was that Avengers?
Jun. 4th, 2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, Mel Hocken is back in Allegiance! (Though she's also in The Avengers as well.) Mel is now assigned to the Daedalus, so she'll return with Caldwell early in the next book.
Jun. 5th, 2011 04:43 am (UTC)
Has anyone asked about Elizabeth or Carson yet..
so looking forward to the next book...
Jun. 5th, 2011 11:27 am (UTC)
Ok! Elizabeth for you!

"Rodney. You don't want to do that."
Jun. 5th, 2011 08:15 am (UTC)
I don't think anyone has asked for The Old One yet...

Or Dr Eva Robinson, if the Old One has already been given.
Jun. 5th, 2011 11:29 am (UTC)
The Old One, to Guide!

*You’re no young blade. And you are thinking I am older still, and you would be right. But I have a reason for asking.*
