I also read it back in the LJ days, it's fantastic! And there's a sequel coming out in October too, I'm REALLY looking forward to that. She's a wonderfully nice author too, which is always a positive thing in my book. (also, whoever chose these captchas? I hate you. The wavey black/white ones are utterly unreadable. I keep having to reload them until I get one I can actually figure out wtf it says!)

I nearly managed to read this when it was still online, but only got through the first few chapters before my computer broke. By the time I had computer access again, it had been pulled from the Internet pending hard-copy publication.

So yeah, being able to own it would be cool. Especially with the prequel story included.
