My Commenters Work

From Sabrina Chase:  The second book in my *totally* human wave SF trilogy, Raven’s Children, came out last month. And my very first print version of my fantasy The Last Mage Guardian just went live this week. Linkages: http://amzn.to/OaCF8y http://amzn.to/QVTicy
From Tom Simon:

A week ago last Friday, I finally put my first novel out:

Lord Talon’s Revenge:
A Comedy of Greed, War, Hatred, Betrayal, and Other Desirable Things

(Sample chapter included at link.)

It’s an epic fantasy (not a goat-gagger, Mrs. Hoyt) and a satire, though not necessarily a satire on epic fantasy. I’ve labelled it as ‘Don Quixote tilts at The Princess Bride’.

Jonathan Moeller(whose own fantasy novels are well worth checking out) describes it as ‘a mix of P. G. Wodehouse, Lord Dunsany, and G. K. Chesterton’. If that sounds appealing to you, do please take a look

From Gina Marie Wiley:  I’ve been writing what I think is human wave fiction from before there was a human wave. I too have had health problems and those delayed my going indie for a year and a half, but I have two books out now Kinsella and Rescue Branch and four or five more to follow. The Amazon links to them are: Kinsella: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BV875K and Rescue Branch: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008PDZPPY. I also have a website where I, and a number of authors, have been posting stories since 2005. I don’t know if you want to include the link; as some of the stories contain erotica and the site does require registration. It is beyondthefarhorizon.net. Some of the stories are professional grade and several of us publish on Amazon.

Hawking your own work in the comments will get you mention in the Saturday post about my commenters work.

From me — does any of you know someone qualified to translate into Portuguese my book Death of a Musketeer?  I’m willing to split the profits from the Portuguese edition (I don’t know if there would be any.)  I would just like to have my dad be able to read ONE of my books and that one is dedicated to him.

Now go write.

  1. Hi, Sarah. You may remember me: we were on that “Writers Reading their Juvenilia” panel at WorldCon in Denver with Connie Willis and Josh Palmatier that was so much fun (at least, I thought it was fun!).

    I’ve got a couple of just-come-out indie releases I’d love to get some more attention for. (I’m still a DAW author…my fantasy Magebane came out from DAW under the pseudonym Lee Arthur Chane last fall, and I’ll have a new YA fantasy trilogy coming out from DAW under the pseudonym E.C. Blake, Masks, Shadows, and Faces, starting sometime next year…but I’m dipping my feet in the indie pool, too, like so many others.)

    So, here are the two YA novels I’ve just released. If you think they’re worth a mention, great! And if not, that’s OK, too.

    The Chosen is out in Kindle (and paperback through CreateSpace) at http://www.amazon.com/The-Chosen-ebook/dp/B007NSS0M2/. Here’s the blurb:

    In a ruined future, two teenagers, one a girl from a religious cult determined to stop the rebuilding of a technological society whose destruction they believe was punishment from God, one a boy from a group just as determined to rebuild the old high-tech world, must overcome their differences to work together to stop the first war of the new age–a war that might destroy both their peoples.

    The Haunted Horn is currently only in Kindle format, at http://www.amazon.com/The-Haunted-Horn-ebook/dp/B008N2VDXK/. The blurb:

    Alex Mitchell doesn’t have the slightest interest in the auction his mother drags him to after a disastrous day at junior high. Antiques are her interest, not his—yet somehow, when they head home, he’s the one clutching a Civil War bugle. When Alex blows the horn, he sets in motion a train of events that will destroy his home town of Oak Bluff, Arkansas…unless he can figure out the secret of the haunted horn in time, and, with the help of his new friend Annie Parker, evade the gang of bullies out to get him, her, and the haunted horn.

    Thanks! Don’t know if you’re going to WorldCon, but if you are, I’ll be there, too…maybe see you around.

  2. Not to quibble with a pro (but not to abandon a lifetime’s work of quibbling, either), but shouldn’t that be: Now go write good?

  3. Oops – forgot ter add: When y’all hawk yer wares, I fer one wou’d ‘preciate if’n you’d state whether a purchase involves the killin’ o’ trees or jes’ the bernin’ o’ phosphor.

  4. The Last Mage Guardian? OH HI THERE! I see you on my Also Boughts all the time! (*Herb-Witch waves*) *grabs sample*

  8. I’ll go ahead and throw in a plug here for Sabrina Chase’s work. For those of you who like Elizabeth Moon or David Weber’s Honor Harrington series; I highly recommend Sabrina’s Sequoyah books. (linked in the post above)

  9. I’m about halfway thru Sabrina Chase’s Raven’s Children. Excellent book. Thank you for reminding me. I like Sabrina’s world-building. I reviewed her first book in this series here.

  10. I’ve got some work done, but it’ll be a bit before it’s advantageous enough for me to put out. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time on hand to do it right…but I will in a while. Then look out! ;-)

  11. You bet your bippy we work! My next book, PEACEWEAVER, a romance set in 973 Wales (a setting that would never, never sell, according to my ex-agent) releases in print and e- on 9/21.

  12. Ooh! Ooh! My turn!
