Small updates

Just a note on a few updates to the site. I've changed the Books page: there are now complete downloads of both Fold Thunder and The Dew of Flesh. Both books are offered in MOBI, EPUB, and PDF. I have set the prices back to normal on Amazon and Smashwords, so it's only a matter of time before Fold Thunder goes back to full price. You'll still be able to get both books for free here, if you like. I believe that people should have a chance to see my work and 'try out' each series, and so the first book of each series will be available for free here.

Also, I believe I mentioned this last time, but Indifferent is completely drafted. It's going through the revision process and will definitely be up for sale before the end of the year. It's the first book in the third series I'm working on (don't worry, I'm not adding any more series until these three are finished) called The Sophistries of June.

I've finished plotting Flood and I'm writing away on it. It's the second book in the Rim and the Shore series, following Fold Thunder. It's been going great; several characters from Fold Thunder appear in the sequel, which follows the story of the rent and the political machinations throughout the Amala's Heart area. In addition to the old characters, though, several new ones form a central part of these stories. We've met some of them before, while others are new to this story. The idea behind this book is that, while it continues the story of the rent and the world of Apsia, it is also a standalone story. In other words, you shouldn't have to read Fold Thunder to enjoy Flood.

And that's enough to keep me busy for a while!

Dew of Flesh up for sale

Just a quick announcement to let you know that The Dew of Flesh is now available for sale on Smashwords and Amazon; it should be available on BN.com as well, as soon as it goes through the Smashwords distribution channel. So far, this round of publishing has been much smoother than the first time, and much faster too.

In the next few days, I'll be updating the website a little bit (mainly the books page) and I hope to give a few comments about Shades of Milk and Honey and The Lies of Locke Lamora (the books I've most recently read).

The first draft of Indifferent is finished, and so that will be going through editing and review for the next while. In the mean time, I've been outlining Flood, the sequel to Fold Thunder, and I will be writing that next.
