It’s not the next Tom Vargas novel (now on preorder!). It’s going to be a novella to bridge the gap between TINSEL RAIN and the next novel, so that I won’t have to use a part of the book to reintroduce Lucas. But I just needed to bring him in properly from the start. I think this works:
I should just accept that this is all that I’m dealing with today. Also, as a reminder: if you backed the Kickstarter at the digital level and filled out your survey you should have gotten a notification of the digital book being available.
TINSEL RAIN NOW AVAILABLE TO PREORDER ON KINDLE! It comes out Friday. Rejoin Shamus Tom Vargas as he investigates murder, magic and mystery in the post-apocalyptic Kingdom of New California! Action! Suspense! A plethora of bad jokes! All awaits your interested gaze!
TINSEL RAIN is back from the editor: and I think that it’s reasonable to release the digital versions of the book now for my Kickstarter backers. Particularly since I want people who backed to get the book before it’s available on Kindle. Which, hopefully, will be Friday. So if you backed, check your emails, and I’m still on track to lock orders to take care of the physical rewards sometime in June. Gotta make sure the physical proofs are okay, after all.
I’ve gotten the edits back from the Editor, I’ve been preparing the digital downloads, and if you qualified for Special Thanks and haven’t finished your survey question I went ahead and made my best guess. As soon as I hear back from the editor I’m punching buttons, so You Have Been Warned.
We’re more than halfway through the second edit pass of TINSEL RAIN, and I… may not have it ready in time for Balticon. Alas. We’re way ahead of schedule anyway, which is the important thing. Better it be good than too fast.
If you’re curious: the gloubari are not particularly more or less advanced than humanity is, technology-wise, so this wasn’t an imposed colony. They instead acquired the Saturn colony in a complicated land estate deal that ended with humanity picking up three rather nice terrestrial-type planets in gloubari systems in exchange. This means that both sides in “Just Don’t Look Over The Edge” are firmly convinced that they’ve robbed each other blind, which is always good for interstellar amity.
…Well, you know, Tales From The Fermi Resolution is on super-sale this week. 99 cents! That’s a steal. So is the book, honestly. I’m not raising the prices on any of the publish books, inflation or not…
Found here. He’s a good dude and I signed up for it under my alternate account (Patreon can be annoying when it comes to Patrons who are also creators). He’ll presumably be doing it to get some extra income from his writing…
