I have now mailed off all the donor copies — some of them twice, as I screwed up the postage on the first batch and they came back. (Only one where I know the postage was wrong hasn’t come back — yet.) The last of them went into the mail Friday afternoon around 3:00. I left the foreign orders until last, since they required these annoying little customs forms, but they’re all on the way now. Copies were mailed to a dozen countries.
I was not as careful as I probably should have been about making sure that everyone who requested a signed copy got one. If you wanted an autograph and didn’t get one, I apologize. If it’s really bugging you, e-mail me and I’ll see about sending a bookplate or something.
So that’s three Ethshar serials (and one non-Ethshar one) done. Next up is probably (no promises) going to be The Sorcerer’s Widow, which may come out only novella length rather than a full novel. I’m therefore planning (if it is that story) to cut the donor cost for a paper copy by five bucks. I’m also hoping to work out the logistics for an e-book option for donors. And I’m currently thinking it should start some time in April. (I have three chapters written so far; I like to start with a backlog of at least four.)
Thanks for your support!
