* Here's the Amazon US preorder link for the paperback edition of the first two Raksura novellas: "The Falling World" and "The Tale of Indigo and Cloud." It will be shipped on September 2 of this year. The paperback with the second two will be out in 2015. And each book should have some additional material, maybe a short story or two.
(The link just showed up recently, so I don't think it's up on any other retailers yet. (The retailers get it from the distributor, so sometimes it takes a few days to propagate out, depending on how often the retailers update their systems, etc.)) ETA: Amazon Canada, Chapters Indigo, Barnes and Noble, Mysterious Galaxy, Book Depository, Book Depository UK, Amazon UK, Amazon.de, Amazon Spain.
* There isn't an ebook edition listed yet because the two novellas will be released individually in ebook -- I don't know yet when they'll be available or how much they'll cost or anything. I'll post as soon as I do. (Originally, the novellas were going to be ebook-only, so the paperbacks are a new development.)
Here's the descriptions for the first two novellas:
In "The Falling World," Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult.
"The Tale of Indigo and Cloud" explores the history of the Indigo Cloud Court, long before Moon was born. In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could spark war throughout all the courts of the Reaches.
I hope people like these. I really enjoyed writing them.
