At the moment I’m between books, having finished the last one and not picked a new one yet, so there’s no Teaser Tuesday for the week. Instead I reached into my vast pile of rejection letters and pulled out this one, from The JABberwocky Agency, for a book that you may have seen mentioned here once or twice …

My new fantasy novel Shards is now available from the Kindle Store (or, if you’re in the UK, the UK Kindle Store) and the Nook Store at Barnes & Noble for $2.99 US (or the equivalent)! A print edition will be coming eventually, but first I need to finish editing (i.e., rewriting) the concluding book, The War of the Ravels, which I expect to have done some time next year. Sorry to leave everyone hanging, but I promise not to take as long as George R.R. Martin does between installments of “A Song of Ice and Fire”!

Well, for the one or two readers (both of whom are most likely in the UK) who are still waiting for the follow-up to Dragon Stones (which was once upon a time the #1 best seller on the Kindle fantasy lists in the UK), it is finally finished! The new book, Shards, is part one of a two-part fantasy series, and clocks in at about 111,000 words. For those who are keeping track, that’s somewhat shorter than A Flock of Crows is Called a Murder or Dragon Stones, but longer than Night Watchman or Long Before Dawn. Why release it as two books instead of one? Well …

So after using the Kindle case with the built in light, the New Yorker case, and the Dragon Stones case, I decided that what I really wanted was a flip case. Maybe one that had some storage pockets. Maybe one like this, from RooCase:

After using the New Yorker Kindle case for a while, I noticed that M-Edge had started advertising that soon you would be able to create custom covers using your own pictures and photographs. Hmm, what would make a good Kindle cover for me? Hmm …

So after using my orange Kindle case for a while, I happened to notice that M-Edge made Kindle cases printed with covers from The New Yorker. The New Yorker is, of course, my favorite magazine of all time (I practically have a lifetime subscription), and I love dogs, and (as the Necromancer astutely noted) orange is my favorite color. So this would be the perfect Kindle case for me, right?

I don’t just write Kindle books, I read them too. Which of course means that I have to keep my Kindle in a case, because I’m not about to carry around a skinny $180 piece of plastic without protecting it. So, one Kindle means one case, right?

This is a “Sorry I Haven’t Been Around Much” post … or rather, I have been around, but I haven’t been here. I’m still trying to get my next fantasy novel out before they forget about me over in the UK. Why, after spending over three years doing mostly funny Dennis stories instead of fiction, am I suddenly so motivated to finish my book? Because of this:

So last week I got a message from Amazon.co.uk that they were going to be depositing a royalty payment into my account. I wasn’t really aware that I had been making any sales in the UK, so I went to take a look at my Kindle e-book reports and was startled to find that I had sold hundreds of copies of Dragon Stones the week before. Then I visited the Dragon Stones product page, and was even more startled to see this:

It’s Memorial Day and I’m feeling lazy, so I figured I would just do another giveaway. You may remember a while back I posted the full PDF of Dragon Stones; so I thought I would follow that up with the full PDF of Long Before Dawn. Because, you know, nothing says “Memorial Day” like a bunch of vampires trying to overrun and destroy a small town in upstate New York. And so, here it is, Long Before Dawn!
Don’t forget to vote for the next scene of the month, coming next week!
