Let’s do the bragging first, and get that out of the way.
Last week, Alliance of Equals by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller hit Number 3 in the list of bestselling science fiction hardcovers, and! it was also Number 8 on the All Science Fiction list.
Thank you all very much. This would not have happened without you!
Steve and I have been working on putting together a new Echapbook. It is currently title-less, but will contain two novelettes, one old and one new. The “old” story is “Chimera,” which was published to Baen.com in March 2015. The “new” story is “Friend of a Friend.” Both stories take place on Surebleak. An author’s introduction will also be included.
Speaking of Echapbooks! Over the next couple weeks, in my Abundant Spare Time(tm), I will be removing our Pinbeam Books chapbooks from the Smashwords store. There may be a Small Period of Readjustment as I set up distribution through Draft2Digital, but eventually the books will be back in the iStore, Kobo, and everywhere else. Amazon and BN listings will not be impacted.
Amazon reader reviews for Alliance of Equals as of this writing number 48! Only 152 more needed to reach our goal of 200 reader reviews! Go, Team Liad!
Also! For those who pre-order ‘waaaaaaaaaay out from Amazon — The Gathering Edge, to be published in May 2017, is now available for pre-order. We hope, but do not yet know (because, c’mon — eleven months out?) that the Uncle will once again conspire with us to offer signed and/or signed and personalized copies for pre-order sometime much closer to the publication date.
And, remember! Steve and I will be talking books and signing them, too, at the Children’s Book Cellar, 52 Main Street, Waterville, this Saturday, July 16, at 2 pm. Hope to see you all there!
I was editing today, and I want to assure you that I had Expert assistance.
An’ if he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, he’d do ’til something lethal came along.
