Audible Pre-order is up

The pre-order for “All These Worlds” is up on Audible. The e-book version should be up within a day or two.

Release Date, er, Released

Audible has set the release date for book 3, “All These Worlds” to be August 8, 2017. The e-book will be released on the same date, and the print version might be a day or two later, because of delays between Createspace and Amazon.

Also, an update to my earlier post: Audible will be re-recording parts of book 1 to bring pronunciations in line with book 2.

On Audio Books and Pronunciation

For We Are Many came out recently, and I’ve received a surprising number of comments on some pronunciation changes. The three words mentioned are: Archimedes, Eridani, and AMI.

So here’s the thing.

Ray corrected his pronunciation of Archimedes in book 2, thanks to some feedback after book 1. Although several people have commented on the change, I don’t think anyone’s actually complained.

As to Eridani, turns out Ray’s pronunciation in book 2 is also correct. I did some quick googling, and it seems the proper pronunciation of the constellation is err-ID-an-us, not err-id-AN-us. By extension, Eridani would be err-ID-an-ee.

Regarding ammy vs amy, well, let’s face it, there are no rules for acronyms. Given default English pronunciation rules, though, the latter is more likely to be correct.

The upshot? I had a discussion with the good folks at Audible, and they are going to look at correcting book 1.

There’s also a horrible brain fart on my part at the top of chapter 40 in book 2 which will be corrected, but I think they can just copy and paste to fix that one.

No, no, THIS year!

I’ve been perplexed by some of the comments on book 2 (on Amazon), where they’ve been saying things like “now I have to wait a year for the third book.” It finally came clear when someone posted this response on goodreads:

 

I’m assuming you mean June 2018? A turnaround of just a few months between books is too much to ask for 🙂

 

(Slaps self upside head) No, actually I mean 2017. But unfortunately, I now mean August 2017. Editing took a little over-long, and I think the production queue is a little too busy at Audible to just slide it in. But summer this year, for book 3.

Well, it’s out there.

Two down, one to go. 🙂

Genealogy of the Bobs

I’ve been asked a few times about the Bob family tree. This one is in the appendices of book 2, so there are a few names in here that will be new to you. If I’ve missed anyone, let me know. It’s too late for the first edition of For We Are Many, but I can fix future editions.

ETA: I’ve added Marvin, who was missed on the first cut. Sadly, that means he’ll be missed in the book 2 release as well. Damn.

ETA ETA: Added Loki as well. I suck.

Audible is turning up the heat

Dang it, I should have posted this on Friday.

Audible has sent out a pre-release email for For We Are Many. And the email drove FWAM to #2 on Audible (for a while, anyway).

Woo hoo!

Timeline of We Are Legion

I promised to put up a timeline of the book. So here you go. Note that this is from before the last round of edits, so something might be off.
