Galactic Philadelphia Reading

October 13, 2019

This coming Tuesday, October 15, I will be participating in the Galactic Philadelphia reading alongside Anna Kashina. We’re both Soviet-born fantasy authors with recently-launched or upcoming books, so fans of swordplay and sorcery should have a grand time at this event!

The event will begin at 7pm and each of us will read for approximately 20 minutes, followed by a Q&A and a book signing. Bring your own copies or buy some of ours! Should be a load of fun, and a nice way to get your hands on Eridani’s Crown prior to the launch at Capclave next weekend.

Details are posted here.

Eridani’s Crown Preorders are Up!

September 15, 2019

I’ll be mostly offline over the course of next week, traveling to Distant Places for Reasons which shall be revealed at the Appropriate Time. Rest assured these are good reasons and I’m doing very cool things. But. This also means I’ll be away and unable to promote my upcoming novel which, by the way, is now available for preorder in both print and ebook.

Unless you got an advance copy via Kickstarter or plan on attending Capclave where I will have a stack of books and hopefully host a launch party, then your mission should you choose to accept it is:

* Preorder your copy.

You don’t have to get it from B&N or Amazon (where preorders are live now) if you don’t want to. Your local bookstore can order a copy for you, since they’re available to them wholesale in the Ingram catalog. You can also request that your local library carry it, though if you’re going to do that please wait another 10 days or so until the hardback version is available for them. (Libraries much prefer hardcovers because they survive a lot longer in their system.)

Either way, preorders are a HUGE boon to the author as they can play a role in local stores bringing in extra copies for their shelves, B&N placing additional copies in their many physical stores, and Amazon sales rankings pushing the algorithms to promote the book to more readers. Your money spent on the preorder works a lot harder than merely earning the author a few bucks’ royalty.

* Tell others.

Getting the word out beyond one’s group of friends and loyal readers is really hard. A recommendation of a friend is far more likely to result in someone else buying the book than any form of advertising or marketing. If you enjoy my writing, please tell people who you think would like this book about its existence!

* Stay tuned!

I’m going to try my best to generate extra buzz about the release, which means giveaways and cool promotions. Don’t worry, you won’t miss your chance at any of those things if you order early!
