Outland Publish Date Announced

I’ve been informed that Outland (audio) will be published May 16 2019. Since audio is the most complex to produce, we always base pub dates for e-books and paperbacks on the audio date, so those will be out the same day.

OUTLAND is in the can

Yesterday, my editor accepted my latest version of Outland with no more modifications. That means, barring something from the copyeditor, I’m done. Now it goes into Audible’s queue, where (among other things) they will get it narrated and produced. And yes, Ray Porter will be doing it. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Audible likes …

Many, many things.

It has been a freakishly busy couple of months. Actually, the whole year has been insane. I’ve been to New York for the Singularity Trap launch, to San Jose for Worldcon, to St. John NB for FogLit, and to Los Angeles for the Visioneering summit. I think I may be travelled out. The Visioneering invitation …

Hardcover set (Signed Limited Edition) is available

Today is release day for the signed, hardcover limited edition of the Bobiverse books. Not problem-free, sadly. The books were boxed in the wrong order, which is not a big deal but looks hokey. Ethan’s getting the supply company to rebox them. It shouldn’t delay shipments, though, as long as they can stay one box …

Updates, Folks

I’ve been catching hell from fans because I’m not supplying updates often enough. So, here’s a core dump… Blog Cleanup In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve moved most of my top pages to ‘Old Pages’. They were out-of-date or no longer relevant items, such as sample chapters for books that are now published. I didn’t …

Audible is advertising aggressively

…And We Are Legion figures prominently. Here are a couple of images–the first is from an ad in the Vancouver skytrain. The second is an ad placed in the New York Times.

Singularity Trap is out and doing well

Checking (obsessively) the stats this morning, and here’s what I’ve found:     Two books in the top ten on Amazon.     Second place overall on Audible, behind Bill Clinton.
