These coupons will be valid until the end of this month, July 31st, and the promotion applies only on Smashwords itself. It does not extend out to the retailers I deploy to through their system.

If you’re a Smashwords user, the coupon codes I mention above are indeed valid site-wide for a great number of titles. There are also codes active for 25 percent off and 75 percent off, for participating titles. You can browse the list of participating titles right over here.

Please spread the word, and if you choose to check out my titles on Smashwords, I hope you enjoy the read!

Post-Orycon inventory update!

I currently have the following things available for direct purchase from me!

Faerie Blood

I have six total print copies of Faerie Blood left in my main stock.

Additionally, I have one extra copy that has a slightly different coloration on the cover, since it’s one of the earliest copies printed and we were still experimenting with the color tones. So it’s a bit paler than the usual copies. Still looks good though so I include this as available at the same price as the usual copies.

Bone Walker

I have 10 total print copies of Bone Walker available.

Additionally, I have two extra copies that have wildly miscolored covers. These were bad copies that came out during the original print run, and Third Place Press just let me keep them. These are available at a significant discount, since they do look very weird. These copies are otherwise fine, though!

I have another copy that has faded a bit on the spine, since it was sitting on the shelf and got some sun on it. So I consider this a cover problem as well, and will make this available at the same discount.

Lastly, I have two damaged copies of Bone Walker. These ones were originally intended for Kickstarter backers, but came back to me damaged in the post. Their covers were damaged, and since they were backer copies, they are signed made out to those backers. These are also available at a steep discount.

Faerie Blood Ebook Bundle CDs

These are the limited run of CDs I burned with an ebook bundle of Faerie Blood in various formats on them. This disc includes both the Drollerie Press edition of the book as well as the current edition. As a bonus, it also includes the short story “The Blood of the Land”.

I actually sold a copy of these at Orycon, go me! I now have eight of these left, and will not be making new ones with this specific set of files.

All of these items are purchasable via my Square store. Additionally, the print copies are available via the Bandcamp merch pages Dara set up for me, which you can find here.

The next convention I will likely have items available will be Conflikt in January, and after that, Norwescon. But if people buy from me before either of these, I’ll be in a position to do fresh print runs of both books.

Questions? Let me know!

Periodic reminder post: best ways to buy my indie titles

I’ve had a friend and reader contact me about buying print copies of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker, and in the process of this, she wanted to specifically know how best to buy books from me to get me the maximum amount of money. So since I periodically do get asked about this, here’s a reminder post!

If you want the print copies of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker

Your only option for getting those books is pretty much “buy them from me”. The best way to maximize the amount of money I get for them is to buy them from me in person, which will have the added bonus of getting you a discount on the price. You won’t have to pay for shipping, AND I knock a couple bucks off the price when I sell the books in person.

I show up at Seattle-area conventions at least three or four times a year, and it’s a safe bet that if I’m at a con, I WILL have books with me to sell. I’ve been working tables with fellow authors in dealers’ rooms at cons a lot the last couple years, so your chances are good at finding me doing that. But even if I’m not working a table, if you want to drop me a line and say “HEY ANNA! I’m going to be at the next Orycon/Norwescon/etc., can you bring me a couple books so I can buy them from you?”, I will be delighted to do that.

I will usually publicize my convention attending a few months in advance, so watch this blog or my social media accounts for updates on where to find me.

I can also usually be found at Quebecois trad music events in the Seattle area, and sometimes in BC as well. So if you know you’ll see me at oh, say, a forthcoming Le Vent du Nord concert, or the next Festival du Bois, or whatever, same thing applies: make arrangements with me and I’ll be happy to bring you a book or two.

If you’re NOT likely to see me in person any time soon, order print books from me. This will mean the books will be slightly more expensive, yes, because shipping. But this will also mean that you have a few more options as to how to pay me.

If you are in the US, you can use my Square store. Note that I do include a print bundle on the Square store which will get you a bit of a discount if you buy Faerie Blood and Bone Walker together.

If you are NOT in the US, you should use the Bandcamp pages Dara set up for the books, which are here for Faerie Blood and here for Bone Walker.

Note that both Square and Bandcamp will take cuts of the sales, but on the other hand, you can also use credit cards on both of those sites, which gives you more ways by which to pay me.

If you want to maximize the amount of money I get, though, you can just also Paypal me the money. Also, if you’re in Canada, I can take payments by Interac since Dara and I maintain a Canadian bank account (since we’re up there a lot). Talk to me to make arrangements for either of these.

If you want ebook copies of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker

As with the print copies, buying directly from me WILL mean I get a little bit more money. My indie ebooks are listed on my Square store, so you can go there to order those books from me, with the added bonus of specifying what format of book you want. (This is the best way to, say, get the PDFs of the two books if you happen to like PDFs. And also: note that my short stories are also available on the Square store.)

And, you can also Paypal me or Interac me as with the print books.

However, let me also note that if you are a digital reader, and you happen to read most of your books via a particular ebook system, I am also totally cool with you buying my titles via whatever system you usually use to get your ebooks. If you’re a Kindle person, by all means, buy ’em via Amazon. If you’re an Apple person, get ’em on iBooks. Or if you’re an Android user, I AM on Google Play.

And while those sites will take their cuts of my sales, it’s also useful to have sales on those sites as well–because it makes the books a bit more visible, and raises the chances of their being seen by other readers who might also want them. And that is also a valuable thing for an indie author like myself.

For more data, you can also always check my FAQ and the Buying From Me page. And you’re always welcome to Contact me if you have any questions!

In honor of Norwescon, latest Faerie Blood and Bone Walker sale!

Norwescon is next week and I’ll be there selling the print editions of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker, as well as the Bone Walker soundtrack CD! And as I usually do when I’m going to be at a convention, the ebook editions of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker will ALSO be on sale. I’ve punted the prices down on each to 99 cents!

These prices will be in effect through the end of March, and apply to the major ebook vendors where I sell as well as to my Square marketplace. As always, here are the major places you can buy both books:

Faerie Blood: Amazon | Nook | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords | Google Play | Square

Bone Walker: Amazon | Nook | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords | Google Play | Square

If you choose to buy the book from the Square store, please note that there are two prices available on those pages, so choose the sale price! Also, if you want to buy from Kobo or B&N or iBooks, give it a day or two if you don’t see the 99 cent price point. It may take those sites a bit to catch up.

Please spread the word!
