Update on the offer front:
One House is now officially out of the race. The two remaining Houses are engaged in a bid-counterbid shootout over World English Rights. With WER on the table (basically US/UK/ANZ publication), UK affiliates to the Houses have been consulted, and are apparently saying very nice things about the MS too. Nobody has consulted the Australians yet (lol).
So yeah, there is officially an international bidding war happening over STORMDANCER as I type this. Which is kinda blowing my mind right now.
Like, right out of my fucking skull…
