The books are ready for shipping! Well, except for one person I’m waiting to hear back from to find out if they want two of one book or one each of two books. So if you’ve gotten an email from me on that, let me know.
Anyway, tomorrow I’ll take ’em all over to the post office and mail ’em out, along with a few complimentary copies to various people and so forth. Assuming it doesn’t rain, which it has been doing with some regularity over the last week or so (when it’s not snowing). I am so ready for winter to be over…
Tomorrow I do all the more persnickety ones, including the international copies. We’re still on-track for me mailing them out Wednesday, which would hopefully mean people will start getting them by the end of the week. At least, that’s the goal. And from there it’s just a matter of finishing up the sampler. With any luck I’ll have it all done two weeks early.
Which just means that if you didn’t do the Kickstarter and want a signed copy of TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION (or any of my other books), you’ll just have to buy a print book from Amazon and track me down at a convention, when we start having those again. Or wait until the next Kickstarter. I do need to work out how to sell copies directly, but unfortunately I’m still two or three books away from the daily sales needed to justify the effort.
Balefires is David Drake’s collection of weird/horror fiction, and it’s quite uncompromisingly good. But, if you’d rather give the money directly to Baen Publishing – and I don’t blame you for that – the direct link is here. The ebook’s not available on Amazon anyway, for some reason.
MYTHIC got funded, so I’m looking forward to it. We need more indy magazines. Also note: I have not placed any stories with this publisher and don’t have any submitted. I mean, I probably should, but it’s not like I don’t have anything else to do right now. I need an assistant. And a dedicated workspace for self-publishing. Ooh, and grab me a pony while you’re down there?
Nephilim: Corruption might not be my usual style, but I’m willing to give it a shot on the principle that demons in space at least deserves a look-see. Also: the thematic mixing implicit in “A Christian Space Princess Novel” is not exactly something I can disapprove of, is it? I mean, the stuff I write is just as cross-genre. Added to the ‘to-read’ list.
And, gonna be honest: audiobooks are not a trivial thing to produce. The FROZEN DREAMS audiobook was easily the hardest part of the Kickstarter to fulfill. I dunno if I can make one for TINSEL RAIN (working title for the sequel) absent a really, really good result in the next Kickstarter…
This is all a lot easier when you have an actual publisher, alas.
