You know what’s happening in eight short days? Besides Steve’s birthday, I mean.
That’s right! BAD ACTORS: Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 33, by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller — will publish in ebook form. Right now you can preorder from Amazon, Apple, BN, Kobo, and a bunch of other online vendors. On July 31, you will be able to buy the ebook directly from Baen.
Right now, you can buy the paper edition of BAD ACTORS from Amazon (surprising no one), and Books-A-Million (surprising everyone). In theory, you will eventually also be able to buy the paper edition from BN, and Bookstores to be Named Later.
I only have figures from Amazon at the moment, and it looks like 39 paperbacks have shipped; and ebook preorders have just hit 450. That’s — pretty good. Thank you all.
In other news, Steve and I are on course to handing in Fair Trade, the sequel to 2013’s Trade Secret on Monday. Madame the Publisher tells us that Fair Trade will be a 2022 summer book, and that David Mattingly will be creating the cover art.
Once Fair Trade is turned in, we’ll have two short stories and three novels still under contract.
…and that gets us caught up for the moment.
