SF Authors at Falmouth MA Public Library

Yikes! Can it really be two weeks since I last posted? Yes, I guess it has been. Well, I've been kicked into action by the need to let folks know (belatedly, yes, yes) about this:

Tomorrow evening (June 17), I'll be appearing with a small group of other SF/F folk at the Falmouth Public Library on Cape Cod. Joining me will be Jennifer Pelland, Michael Burstein, and Walter Hunt, all from eastern Massachusetts. We'll be talking about our work, answering questions, and (we hope!) selling and autographing books.

Falmouth Public Library, 300 Main St., Falmouth, Massachusetts. 7:00 – 9:00

If you're in the area, why not stop by?

And Now On To Baen Webscriptions!

A fine day, book-wise. My whole slate of E-Reads titles appeared today on Baen Webscriptions, along with two Rudy Rucker titles, as part of the E-Reads June package (11 books for 60 bucks). They are, of course, available individually as well. If you missed the Fictionwise sale (now over), this is a great segue: they're on sale at Webscriptions for $6 each, for a limited time. And at Baen the books are always multiformat and DRM-free.

Meanwhile, I got word from E-Reads that the books at Fictionwise have been selling strong out of the gate, which is good news indeed. Before this big push and the free downloads program, my ebooks sold hardly at all. Now, we seem to be turning that around, and a whole new audience really does seem to be discovering my work, and picking up my backlist, as well.

Finally, I've gotten several really encouraging and heartfelt emails from readers who have done just that—found my freebies and gone on to read the others. (Some have made generous donations, as well.) It's just so encouraging and restorative to have folks finding and bring the older books back to life!
