Faerie Blood and Bone Walker sale for the holidays!

Faerie Blood Second Edition Cover

Y’all may recall that I had Faerie Blood and Bone Walker on sale during November for Orycon. Well, I’m extending that sale through the holidays!

What

So you can get the ebook editions of these two books for 99 cents each at your favorite ebook vendor. And! If you’re print-inclined, I’m also waiving the shipping costs for the print editions if you’d like to order them directly from me!

This sale will run through the end of December, to give folks plenty of time to get either title for Yule, or even a few days after. If anyone happens to get an ereader and has a hankering to find something to read to put on it. Because I am HELPFUL. ;D

Where

If you aren’t already familiar with the books, you can read samples on the official Faerie Blood and Bone Walker pages. You can click over to your favorite ebook vendor from those links as well, or from the Books2Read links for them, which are:

Faerie Blood on Books2Read

Bone Walker on Books2Read

If you’d like to order the print books, you can do so on my Square store. You can also use the merch pages hosted by Crime and the Forces of Evil on Bandcamp, which are here and here.

If you don’t want to go through a vendor, you can pay me directly via Paypal. I go into more detail about how you can pursue other options on the Buying From Me page. If you have any questions about how you might pay me for either book, contact me!

Any questions?

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!

Faerie Blood

Heart book meme

This is the second of the two memes I’ve been tagged on on Facebook recently, and this one came at me via fellow Here Be Magic author Sonya Clark. As with the previous meme post, I won’t outright tag people on this. But if you’re a fellow writer and want to jump in, feel free!

From Sonya’s post:

Amy Burgess tagged me to share a “heart” book and the story behind it.

This one’s almost too easy, really. Because even with five released books, to this day I continue to think of Faerie Blood as the Book of My Heart.

And not just because it’s my first released novel, either. Every author’s going to be partial to their first release.

I could say as well that Faerie Blood‘s notable for being the book I finished Nanowrimo with in 2003, which gives it extra heft in my affections. But that’s not really why it’s the Book of My Heart, either.

What makes Faerie Blood my Heart Book is that I’ve thrown so much of what I love into it.

Music, obviously. Elessir is an “unofficial” Elvis impersonator and Christopher is a bouzouki-playing Newfoundlander for music-fangirling reasons that will be obvious to anybody who knows me: i.e., that I’m a lifelong Elvis fangirl and that Great Big Sea remains my all-time favorite band. But not even just that. Multiple characters in Faerie Blood are musicians, and not for any reasons that are particularly relevant to the plot or the worldbuilding, but rather, just because I feel very deeply that making music is an important part of life.

This is also why there’s a scene in Faerie Blood in which Kendis and Christopher geek out a bit about bouzouki tuning, and another in which they just hang out together and play their instruments. The latter in particular has its origins leading straight back to Patrick O’Brian’s Master and Commander, and how much I simply adored that Aubrey and Maturin took the time out in between all the action to just hang out and play music together. That won my love as a reader, and that love hung out in the back of my writer brain until I was able to write a “characters hanging out and bonding over playing music” scene of my own.

Then there’s the Sidhe. I know it’s fashionable in the SF/F genre these days to dismiss elves as a cliche. I know there’s such a thing as the Our Elves are Better trope and the Screw You, Elves trope. I know there’s even an entire filk album called Everybody Hates Elves.

As y’all might guess, I do not count myself amongst that “everybody”. C.f. all my previous commentary about how Elfquest is such a formative influence on me.

Now, also obviously, Faerie Blood is only the first step into my Warder universe. And I’ve got a lot coming that I’m very eager to share with you, stories that will hopefully do for you as readers what they’ll do for me as a writer: deepen the universe, show you more about what’s going on, and give you more to love about it.

But really, Faerie Blood is what started it all. And for that, it’s the Book of My Heart.
