News and New Books

News:

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.

New Books:

* 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.

* Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine
This love story for the ages, set in a reimagined industrial Asia, is a little dark, a bit breathless, and completely compelling.

* Kickstarter: BLACKGUARDS: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues
I'm not in this anthology, but Carol Berg is, and I'll be in one of the anthologies they're doing a kickstarter for next year.

* Havoc by Ann Aguirre
The Conglomerate’s most dangerous convicts have made the prison ship Perdition their home. And they will defend it

Cool! I definitely want the complete collection for my Nook.

As soon as my local library re-opens (it's being refurbished until late fall), I'm going to rec your books to them, or just buy some copies and donate them. Everyone should have the opportunity to read your work.

Thanks very much!

If you donate books to a library, make sure first that they can add them to the collection. Sometimes they aren't allowed to and the books just go into the Friends of the Library sale.

My preorder for the paperback of volume one on B&N still says expected ship date September 2.

Yeah, I figure I won't know for sure until it's actually September 2.

Sorry to hear about the delay; glad I ordered the ebook. I wish I could ask for your e-signature on it. :D

Havoc looks interesting.

Yeah, I wish there was something like that for ebooks. Digital signatures aren't very personal.

I think Havoc is the second book in the trilogy. In the first one they take over the prison ship.

My library somehow has caught on and purchased all of your ebooks that are available through OverDrive after I recommended a couple. I hope that helps as much as them buying physical books. More people need to know about your books!

I'm so excited to read more Raksura stories and am glad to hear that ebook release is still on schedule. I don't pre-order books from many authors, but I've been looking forward to this all year. Thank you for returning to this world. :)

Yay, thank you! Getting them on overdrive does help as much as buying physical books!

And I hope you enjoy the new novellas!

I loved the novellas! I can't wait to read the next batch, and would love it if you decided to write more full-length Raksura novels someday. (Trying not to beg but it's hard.)

I like having the e-book compilation on my tablet even though I own the paper copies. I also have e-copies of Wheel of the Infinite and City of Bones despite owning hardcovers. I can always fall back on them if I'm traveling and run out of other things to read, since they are good for repeated re-reading.

Cool, thank you! I'm starting to use iBooks more when I travel, too.
