Raksura Update

From emails the preorder people are getting, Stories of the Raksura I should be shipping on the 24th. Confusingly, a lot of places still list October 7 as the ship date, but also say "in stock."

The ebook and audiobook are already available.

And you can request your local library order it, or once it starts to be cataloged in various libraries, they may be able to get it for you through interlibrary loan. And some libraries are also set up to loan ebooks.

Reviews on Amazon, B&N, wherever else you got it, GoodReads, and LibraryThing are extremely helpful. Especially on Amazon, where getting 20-25 reviews, good or bad, means the book will actually be shown to more people in their algorithms.

If you missed it, I posted a Raksura snippet on Friday, where Moon and Stone go into a dive bar.

We did not have a good weekend. On Friday my husband's truck wouldn't start, then on Saturday we realized the car has some kind of wheel/balance/alignment problem that's causing it to shake like a wheel is about to come off. (It's not any of the tires themselves, they're all fine, have the right air pressure, are still attached to the car, etc.) So we are looking at a lot of extra expense this week. I really hope it doesn't cost that much.

And the Celtic Music Festival we went to Saturday was just not that great. Not many bands were there we wanted to see, few merchants and no new ones, just not a lot there. It was okay, just kind of blah. We did get some homemade soap and backyard mulberry honey from one of our favorite merchants, though.

I'm reading Maplecroft by Cherie Priest. A really neat, spooky dark fantasy starring Lizzie Borden. Very good Halloween book.

Just an FYI from a librarian--libraries don't loan out books through interlibrary loan until they've owned it for 6 months so the taxpayers who actually paid for the book can have first crack at it. For the first 6 months after a book is published, you're better off filing a purchase request. Libraries really do take those seriously.
