Ok...understand, I don't have confirmation of this but since I've found it on a number of sites...we seem to have the title and release date of Michael's new book:
The Soul of it All: My Life, My Music - release date 11/13/12
Here it is on amazon.com and it is also on itunes for those with ibooks.
Hi, Gail & Pilar
Wow !!! I love this news. I never thought that Michael would write his biography.
He always have been so jealous of his privacy. I can't wait......
and being released on my saint. Thanks !!!!!!
Have I got this totally wrong folks..........how on earth can Amazon anywhere say that they are "sold out" when they have never had copies to sell.......it is, at this stage, a PRE-ORDER.......so do they not wait and see how many pre-orders they get and then order that specific number (with a few extra I hope) or, as I read it, people in french speaking countries who would go to Amazon (french) are being denied the right to pre-order or does Amazon. specify a certain number they will take for pre-order and Amazon (french) have "sold" that number of pre-orders and they cannot automatically up that number because of some legal conditions OR are Amazon, in non-English speaking countries, waiting to see if it is translated before they go for pre-orders......doesn't quite seem right or fair to me for the customer and also for Michael for whichever way it is it has to be denying sales especially too when it is available on CD because a lot of non-speaking English people would purchase that because they understand spoken English !! I have checked the American site and the UK one and both have still got it on pre-order.
I am sorry Caro if you have been trying to pre-order and cannot and hope you will be able to soon !!!
Sylvia, I think you may be right and it is the fact that there is not a French translation..at least not yet. The US version is preorderable but if they put it on the French amazon site it would still be the US version as an import. So maybe they are waiting to see if there is a French version rather than an import...this is just my guess and nothing anyone has told me! The book doesn't go on sale until 11/13 so they have time...they are losing presales but I think they will catch up.
Hi Caro, fans from France might be able to order the book and audio book from Amazon.fr, but I'm pretty sure it will be in English, so they should know. Thanks for bringing the links over here though. Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
I haven't ordered mine yet. I have time. Perhaps I'll get it for Christmas from my sister or my friend nancy. She got me Michael Lington's CD with Shotgun. Boltonnut from L. A. CA Can't wait to get the book. At least the audio edition. :D
Now! gloria! How awesome was that? So, you got to meet him? Neat about the pictures. Boltonnut from L. A. CA
Hey Gloria, thanks for the info sweetie. Hmm, so if he was signing books, it means it's finished. So dare I ask the question: why do we have to wait until November? And who are these lucky people who were there at that expo, knowing they could have his book signed? Anyone else for questions? :D In any case, thanks for sharing Gloria, much appreciated, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
I hear you Sylvie & Gloria. What's the info here, girlfriend? Boltonnut from L. A. CA wants to know. :D
Robin, the fact that Michael was signing his book at a book expo, to me meant that the said book was finished. Now Anna says it looks like it was only the jacket so let's keep wondering! lol Take care girl. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
From what I can tell looking at the picture, it looks like he was signing the book jacket, not the actual book.

Thanks for the visuals Anna, much appreciated! :D Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
