Sundry and Book Recs

Sundry:

Okay, the ebook of The Element of Fire is now for sale on Kobo (DRM-free) for 2.99. Wheel of the Infinite is also there, but City of Bones is still stuck in their system.

My other books on Kobo (still in print so being sold via the publishers) are here. This includes the Raksura books, the Ile-Rien trilogy, and the Stargate: Atlantis books. (They're also available on Nook, Baen ebook store (Raksura books are DRM-free there), Kindle, iTunes, Waterstones UK, Whitcoulls NZ etc. I try to keep track of all the buy links on my web site here.)

This is really good advice for writers: Sarah Weinman: Life Lessons For and From the Literary World

Books recs:

Book I just finished:

Redshirts by John Scalzi - This is described as a story about the lower level crewmembers on a starship not unlike the Enterprise who discover they're the only ones who ever die on away missions, while the main bridge crew are mysteriously immune. That's how it starts, but it's more than that, and I don't want to spoil it by saying more about it. But I enjoyed it a lot, and I think it's particularly resonant for people (like me) who get attached to fictional characters, the ones they created and the ones they didn't, and/or who have always loved SF TV.

Book I'm about to start:

The Shadowed Sun by N. K. Jemisin. I loved the first book in this two-book set (The Killing Moon) and I'm looking forward to this one. They're fantasies, set in a world reminiscent of ancient Egypt.

Book I have which I'll be reading soon:

When Maidens Mourn by C.S. Harris. This is the latest installment in a historical mystery series that I describe as being like a mystery set in a regency romance.

Are there any plans for an e-book of The Death of the Necromancer? I was trying to get my sister to read it, but she was looking things for her kindle (easier to manage with a new baby).

I'm waiting to find out is a prospective publisher is still interested in it. It's taking a lot longer than I hoped, so not sure when I'll know anything more.

Ahh, I wondered if it was something along those lines when I saw that it was the last holdout! Hopefully you will have good news soon :)

Thank you! Yes, I get paid directly for the out-of-print ebooks -- it's pretty much what I'm paying my monthly bills with now.

Glad you liked it! The third one is just about to come out, and I've been really looking forward to it.
