It’s here! It’s finally here! Author happy dance in progress!
Steam & Sorcery is now available in trade paperback from Amazon.com.
Here’s the deal: it’s always going to say “Out of Stock” because this is a new sort of print on demand, that is literally one-copy-at-a-time, when it’s ordered. You order, they print one, they send it to you. It’s a very different model, but we at Carina Press are really excited to be trying it out. So please, at least take a look.
In other news, this weekend I’ll be at Steamtopia in Detroit. If you’re in the area, my panels and workshops are all on Friday and Saturday, since I’m bugging out a little early, to celebrate Father’s Day with my dad, who turns 90 this year.
What will I be talking about? Genre mash-ups, a how-to workshop on queries and pitches, building a magic system for your world, those Naughty Victorians (adult-only panel) and the pros and cons of different sorts of publishing. There will be a group booksigning on Saturday. Will I have copies of Steam & Sorcery? Not likely, unless the Amazon gods pull off a miracle, but I’ll have info and bookplates, and copies of several of my Ellora’s Cave titles. 🙂
When a Con comes up, I always have the great dilemma of what to wear. Which Cindy do I want to be this weekend?
So many choices? What do you think? Any thoughts or suggestions?
