I signed the first two copies of Emilie and the Hollow World today, for my husband's supervisor's daughters, India and Tysyn. So it was neat for the first signed copies of my YA to do to YA-age people.

Neat news:

* Liz Bourke in her Sleeps with Monsters column on Tor.com said very nice things about The Element of Fire.

* The Other Half of the Sky anthology (I have a Raksura story in it) got a great Library Journal review: Fearless writing and a broad selection of topics makes this a good choice for fans of woman-centered SF and excellent storytelling. The official release date is April 23 and that's when the ebook version will be available.

Fic recs on Black Gate Magazine:

* Truck Stop Luck by Nina Kiriki Hoffman
“Someone made statues of your family, you’re hauling them around, and you don’t know why,” Mike asked.

“Yeah, I guess,” said Keith.

* The Sorrowless Thief by Ryan Harvey

* Disciple by Emily Mah

I'll bring my copy to Dallas to be signed ;o)

I should have another handful of books for you to sign at Lonestarcon3 including Emilie. With 1-year-old twins, making reading time is tough. I found the start a little slow and had trouble identifying with the characters which is very unusual for me with your books. Now, I'm rocking along and hope to finish by the weekend, if not sooner. I like it a lot. I hope it gets lots of great press and a sequel or two.

I was also thrilled with Liz Bourke's post on Tor.com. I think you are criminally underappreciated!

If Amazon had made it known an e-book would be available, that would have been my preference. But at least I received my physical copy early! Jade's adventure was fun.

Thank you! Yeah, I don't know why the ebook version wasn't listed on the preorder entry.
