I posted a couple of photos to my tumlbr from yesterday:
Went to a very fun wedding yesterday. It was about a two hour drive from our house, so we left early so we could have lunch at the Salt Lick Barbeque in Round Rock, which is a rare treat for us. It was in the 90s but cloudy and just cool enough to sit outside. The food was wonderful and I was so full I ended up not having any dinner last night.

Second photo is a friend who was cosplaying Clark Kent at the wedding. You can’t see them but he’s also wearing awesome Superman cufflinks.

* Part three of The Death of the Necromancer should be posted on Black Gate Magazine this evening.
Part One is here and Part Two is here.


I'm not a member of SFWA anymore (I dropped out a few years ago when I couldn't afford the dues), but if you are, you should read this link: Calling for the expulsion of a SFWA Member


Books I'm looking forward to:

* Cold Steel by Kate Elliott will be coming out on June 25. This is the end of her Cold Magic trilogy and I've really been looking forward to it.

* Catriona McPherson has a new Dandy Gilver mystery coming out on July 4. I'm not sure when it's out in the US, but it's available from Book Depository UK, which has free shipping.

* The new book in Ben Aaronovitch's excellent fantasy/mystery series is coming out in the UK in July, but the US edition has changed publishers and will be pushed back to next year. But it looks like the British hardcover should be available again through Book Depository UK on July 25: Broken Homes. I'm going to order it as soon as possible because I CAN'T WAIT.

Huh, I don't know. I know people in other countries often can't download kindle US books so I have a bad feeling we wouldn't be able to get kindle UK books. Maybe try kobo? Though I guess availability is going to depend on how the rights are divided up between the UK publisher and the new US publisher. When the ebook is available all over to any country, I think it's because it's being put out by one publisher who has world distribution rights.

Probably not. I tried to download a recent new release and got the message that I was in the wrong country - no book for YOU! ::glares::

If I want to give amazon.uk my money, what's it to them where I live?

THANK YOU for telling me about the 'Book Depository UK'!!! Free worldwide shipping? I am so there (apparently the fantasy being published in the UK is more to my taste than that being published here, and I am sick to death of waaaaaaiting for American versions to be distributed whenever they get around to it.) And new 'Dandy Gilver', yessssss.

Also: was it you who recently recommended the 'Dhylun and Parno' novels? If so, thanks bunches! I really enjoyed them.

Yeah, it seems like we have to wait a lot longer than we used to to get the books over here.

Yes, that's by Violette Malan! Glad you enjoyed them.

My paperback of Necromancer is wearing out! Love it. And love all your work.

Unrelated to any of the above, but someone linked me to the Stop Telling Women to Smile tumblr, and it reminded me of a post you made on the subject so I thought I'd pass it along :)

Yeah, I'm glad they label it as street harassment, because that's what it is.
