The Unwelcome Warlock: Progress Report Fifty-One

I am pleased to report that The Unwelcome Warlock: A Legend of Ethshar is now available on paper, as well as in e-book form.

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!

  1. Yeah, I had some old Christmas cards I enclosed with some of the books. Unfortunately, there were fewer than I realized; I ran out less than halfway through, so most people didn’t get them.

  2. My copy came. I really enjoyed re-reading it and some of the same old questions came up; things along the lines of plot choices made not worth dignifying but again, what a great story. I was struck again by Rothiel; he seemed to be lacking confidence and making assumptions that an apprentice would make. I realize that quite often he was used as a sounding board for more experienced characters. I am not sure what else you could have done.
    thanks for a great book. Cannot wait for the next one. My nephew’s 10. I am going to turn him on really soon.

  3. My copy arrived in the UK a week or so back. Nice produced book and it was fun rereading the story. I hope the next ethshar serial starts soon.

  4. Just a note — there are comments awaiting moderation, but I won’t be able to do anything with them until next week — I’m traveling, and this computer doesn’t have admin access.
