Very quick one this week, but some cool news.
The LOTUS WAR trilogy has just sold in Brazil to Objetiva books – http://www.objetiva.com.br. Publication will be in Portugese, final release date to be announced. E-book format will also be available. Huzzah!
STORMDANCER also got a starred review over at Shelf Awareness – I don’t normally bounce my own pogo stick over my professional reviews, but this was another big one, and the review is funny too 🙂
Mr Mike Perschon, aka Steampunk Scholar, probably the greatest authority on the interwebs about all things SP just named STORMDANCER in his Top 10 Steampunk Must Haves, along with seminal texts like LEVIATHAN and BONESHAKER, so that was pretty awesome.
Thanks to all the folks who’ve been sending me pics of STORMDANCER in the wild. Please send more, it’s very cool seeing my baby out in the world.
THE WORLD section of my website is now complete – you can read a potted history of the Shima imperium, along with a little bit about each of the four clans here. We’ll be adding a new section with wallpapers and bonus stuff and whatnot in the next few weeks.
For people who couldn’t be at the launch asking about getting a copy of THE LITTLE STORMDANCER (very awesome of you), I’m currently investigating putting the book up online somewhere. I don’t really know the how’s of it all – I’ll need to do some poking around now that life is returning to a “normal” pace. But more news will follow.
The STORMDANCER blog tour is wrapping up, but there are still a couple of signed hardbacks up for grabs on the later stops, so if you’re looking for freebies, BAM.
As for my life, I’m back off the promo vacation. All the interviews and blog posts were kinda exhausting, but it was still awesome and I hopefully didn’t make an idiot of myself in any of them (although my sarcasm seems to be lost on some folks…). I’m working my way through third draft of book 3, awaiting editor’s notes on book 2 and tossing around ideas on a Secret Project which is shaping up kinda cool. At least in my head.
And that is all. Big Scary Hugs.
