Current and Upcoming Stuff

Here's a list of my current and upcoming stuff. I think I've got it all here. If you missed the butternut squash soup recipe from yesterday, it's here.


Books that are currently available:

Empire and Rebellion: Razor's Edge, Emilie and the Hollow World, and all three Books of the Raksura. And you can get an ebook bundle of the Raksura books: Kindle, Nook, and Kobo or get them individually DRM-free (and for cheap) at Baen's Webscription Store.

All my backlist is available at least in ebook and most of them in audiobook: list of everything here.

If you've read something of mine and you do reviews, please consider posting a review on Amazon, B&N, GoodReads, LibraryThing, whatever. Every little bit helps, and these reviews do help.

Upcoming Books and other stuff:

Emilie and the Sky World will be out March 4.

I have a story in Tales of the Emerald Serpent: A Knight in the Silk Purse which should be out sometime later this spring. It's called "Soul of Fire." All the stories are in and they're waiting on the art now.

I have an essay in The Kobold Guide to Magic, which should be out in late March or early April. It's called "A Life Less Ordinary: The Environment, Magic Systems, and Non-Humans"

I have four Books of the Raksura novellas coming out. What I know at this moment and which may be subject to change, for all I know: Each novella will be released individually in ebook, I don't know when. They will be released in paperback, the first two novellas in one volume, and the second two in a second volume. I'm not sure when yet, but I think the first paperback will be out this Fall and the second next year sometime. The first two novellas are The Falling World (about 39,500 words long) and The Tale of Indigo and Cloud (about 24,500 words). The third one is called The Dead City and it's almost finished. I'll start the fourth one as soon as I finish it. When I know exact dates and have preorder links, I'll post them.

Conventions I am going to so far:

* February 21-23: ConDFW, in Dallas, Texas.

* Saturday March 29: I'll be Guest of Honor at LeoCon, in Commerce, Texas, at TAMU Commerce.

* May 23-26: Comicpalooza, in Houston, Texas.

* July 3-6: Convergence 2014 in Bloomington, Minnesota.

They will be released in paperback, the first two novellas in one volume, and the second two in a second volume.

YAY!!!!!!

I want these!

Ooh, I'm glad to hear they're planning on doing print editions of the Raksura novellas!

Emilie and the Sky World will be out March 4.

Which I have already preordered (both for my personal Kindle and in print for the library.) :) Also, Emilie has been circulating briskly.

Yay! Very glad to hear that about Emilie.

How do conventions work for authors?

Hi Ms. Wells, you are one of my favorite authors and I have stalked....umm...admired you from afar for years.

This isn’t a writing question as such, more a fan question. I know you do a lot of book signing and appearances in Texas but would you ever be interested in going farther afield? Like Canada? I don’t know how appearances at events such as the largest western Canadian event that takes place in Calgary, Alberta (The one I go to every year! http://www.calgaryexpo.com/) are set up; do you yourself, (as an author) ask to attend or are you invited?

Thank you!

First, thank you!

To the question, all conventions are different, and as an author you can ask to be put on programming but with some it's very hard. (I've been turned down by a few conventions I've wanted to go to which makes me kind of leery of asking.) One big limiting factor for me is money. Unless you're one of the guests of honor, conventions don't cover travel or hotel or anything for authors besides a free pass to get in. I can usually only afford one or two out of state conventions a year, and going out of the country is usually too expensive. I would love to go to Canada at some point, though.
