Well, let’s see. . .
Several questions from the depths of the Roll Call, so! Answers.
*Book tours happen at the whim and/or planning of the publisher. If we have helpers on the ground, Steve and I will occasionally do a book tour, or visit a bookstore local to the vicinity of an SF convention or WorldCon. We were in Colorado some years back — 2006, I think — as GoHs at CoSine; and in Denver Itself for the WorldCon in 2008. We did not do a bookstore tour at either of those cons; the local bookstores being largely uninterested in having second-string scifi writers come to their stores. We are Further Constrained by the fact that we don’t fly, which limits the venues to which the publisher can economically send us. Which is to say: Unless we’re in Denver for Another Reason, and one or two or three of the local stores are willing to host a signing, our book tours, at least, will probably not reach Denver.
*I’m not certain I understand either the need or the desirability for a Collected Liaden Works for Kindle. That being said…to the best of my knowledge, Baen is selling two bundles of novels — Korval’s Legacy and Phase Change, but I think that only gets you ten or twelve. Surely, if one has a Kindle, there’s a way to make a category, say, LIADEN, and stick all your Liaden books under that category? Just a thought.
*The reason we have not Mentioned the Rest of the Geography, Fauna, and Population (if any) of Planet Surebleak is because! all the stories thus far have happened in the Port and the City, and neither Steve nor I feel like writing a Forbes Guide to the Surebleak Outback.
As reported elsewhere, you may now pre-order the Audible version of Alliance of Equals. Here’s the link.
Yes, we are aware that Audible has the book listed as AN Alliance of Equals; we have written to them on the topic.
It’s a warm and pleasant day here at the Confusion Factory. I have vacuumed, and done a blankie run, the latter no doubt being the reason why I have three Large Cats asleep on my desk, all within the reach of my hand. The coffeepot is hissing through its cleaning cycle; and I need to sort laundry. After lunch, I will make a Sincere Effort to actually add words to the working manuscript.
I hope everyone is having a fine and relaxing day.
