The release date for Stories of the Raksura I may have been moved back to September 16, at least for the trade paperbacks. (Amazon says September 23 but maybe that's part of an extortion attempt -- you just can't tell with Amazon.) The ebook listings are still listed as releasing on September 2 and the audiobook also still lists September 2. So, I don't know. You guys may know before I do.
And the ebook is now up for preorder on Kobo. It just took Kobo a while to join the party, apparently.
And the ebook compilation of The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, and The Siren Depths is available on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo and also on iBooks. The DRM free versions are on Baen.
And The Cloud Roads is available in trade paperback again.
FYI, I am incredibly grateful for preorders, putting in requests for your local library to buy any of the books for their collection (they may also be able to get them for you through interlibrary loan, adding them to GoodReads or LibraryThing lists, reccing it to your friends, or reviews even if you didn't like it.
* The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley
On the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past... while a world goes to war with itself. In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from another realm are decimating whole cities, leaving behind nothing but ash and ruin. At the heart of this war lie the pacifistic Dhai people, once enslaved by the Saiduan and now courted by their former masters to provide aid against the encroaching enemy.Stretching from desolate tundra to steamy, semi-tropical climes seething with sentient plant life, this is an epic tale of blood mages and mercenaries, emperors and priestly assassins who must unite to save a world on the brink of ruin.

This love story for the ages, set in a reimagined industrial Asia, is a little dark, a bit breathless, and completely compelling.
