Ebook sale, and WHITEFIRE now available in audiobook!

Sorry for no Thursday Adventure post this week - it's been a whirlwind of recovering from WorldCon and getting ready for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' Colorado Gold conference (which starts today!).  I am in fact about to run off to said conference (with shiny new copies of The Tainted City in hand, ready for the book sale!), but I have a bunch of news too good not to share:

1. The Whitefire Crossing's ebook is on sale for $3.99 at Amazon! Tell your friends (and neighbors, and random strangers, and....:)   Not sure how long exactly this will last, so snap it up while you can.

2. Audible released the audio version of The Whitefire Crossing yesterday - yay!  (I myself plan on listening to the narration on my drive down to the conference today...I am so curious to see how it turned out.  I tell you, this is one of those moments as an author that feels so beautifully surreal.  Your very own book, read aloud by someone else...whoa.)  

3. There's a new short excerpt from The Tainted City up on Pat's Fantasy Hotlist.  This excerpt comes from the start of chapter 8, so a little ways into the book...the scene doesn't have any huge spoilers, but if you want to avoid any hint of the book's events then I suppose you should steer clear.  (I'm not the sort of person who minds, but I know some people like to stay completely spoiler-free.)

4. This week at the Night Bazaar, I share the one thing I'd change about the publishing industry.

And now, onward to the RMFW conference!

  2. Congratulations! I love it when authors get audiobooks of their work. There's something of a milestone aspect to it.

    1. Thanks, John! And yes, it does feel like a milestone...or maybe just a "never imagined this would ever happen" sort of thing. (Because if you'd told me, say, 5 years ago that I'd write a book and get it published and have an audiobook version, I'd have responded with one of Dev's first lines: "You've got to be f***ing kidding me!" :P

  3. Audiobook! YAY!!! :-) Off to purchase.

    Please post after you've listened a little; I imagine it'll feel quite weird to hear your own words from someone else's mouth.

    1. Thanks, Kendall! I do intend to do a post next week talking about what it's like to listen. (Short version: really cool and really weird at the same time!) And hey, if you buy & listen, shoot me an email after...would love to hear a reader/listener's thoughts!

  4. With all those copies of Tainted City there, I told a friend in Boulder to run over and get me one, but she had a Scottish Festival to attend (must be all those kilts).

    The good news is that yesterday I got a note saying the copy I ordered will get here not on October 9, but September 17, which isn't that long a wait at all.

    1. Ah yes, I went to that Scottish Festival once. (Assuming it's the one in Estes Park!) The men in kilts indeed made for quite pleasant scenery. :)

      And yes, got an email from a friend yesterday pointing out that Amazon ship date is now Sep 12 (day after tomorrow, eeep!), and I nearly choked on my lunch (in a combo of delight and terror). I knew Amazon was likely to ship early (they did the same thing last year)...but the reality of my book heading into the big wide world always comes as a bit of a shock, somehow!
