Hey folks! Surfacing from Norwescon long enough to report that my very first contribution to the Here Be Magic blog has gone up today! I’m being relaxed and groovy, and talking a bit about Valor of the Healer as well as Faerie Blood, and mentioning a few of the ways I’m shooting for equality and balance in my work. It’s no accident that both of my heroines of record, to date, are elves who are not white.
And being, well, ME, I also mention a few of the ways I love to geek out!
Come on over and say hi! I AM at Norwescon so I’m only able to pay erratic attention to the comments right now, but I’ll be trying to answer any comments as the weekend progresses and I have time in between convention programming.
Many thanks to my fellow Here Be Magic authors for spreading the word!

So! Here I am on my first night of Norwescon, and all, repeat, all of my remaining postcards and posters for Kiri Moth’s awesome Faerie Blood cover art have vanished off the freebie tables where I left ‘em. And at least one person appears to have bought Faerie Blood on Amazon today, and I have picked up a couple new followers on Twitter as well.
If you’re coming by because you found those posters and postcards, and you see this before the end of the convention: special offer! Come find me and I’ll sign that postcard or poster for you, and also give you $1 off either the print edition of Faerie Blood OR the CDs of the ebook that I have with me! Blonde chick. Brown hat. Great Big Sea hoodie. Can’t miss me!
Asking $15 for the print editions, and $5 for the ebook CDs–which contain not only the EPUB, PDF, and MOBI formats of the current edition of the book, but ALSO the EPUB and PDF of the original Drollerie Press edition. And I’ve thrown in the EPUB, PDF, and MOBI editions of the Warder universe short story “The Blood of the Land” as well. I have 17 copies of these discs, and they’re a Norwescon exclusive. Get ‘em from me while supplies last!
ALSO: I have arranged with the nice lady who runs the Book Universe table to have four copies of the print edition on consignment for the con! If you can’t find me and you want a copy of the book, look in the dealers’ room for the Book Universe table! I buy books from them every year just because they’re awesome.
ALSO #2: Special shoutout to Tiger Gray and Vivien Weaver at the Hard Limits Press table in the dealers’ room, who turn out to know my most EXCELLENT editor at Carina, Deb Nemeth! I bought the two books they were selling on the grounds of that, and we had an awesome conversation about each other’s book covers, and publishing under pen names. Note also: Hard Limits Press is taking submissions. Fellow writers, go look ‘em up.

As y’all know, Internets, I had announced that the Faerie Blood sale would end on January 31st. So when the calendar rolled over to February 1st, I reset the price on the Faerie Blood ebook to $4.99 on the various places where it’s sold.
It is now correct everywhere except for Amazon’s US site, which for some reason is still convinced that the price is $2.99. I have an open support request to them about this, since as near as I can tell this means that their servers think that they should be price-matching against some other site when this is no longer actually the case.
But what it means for YOU, if you’re a US-based Kindle owner, is that OH HEY, the book is still on sale! So grab it for $2.99 while the grabbing is good!
Also, for those of you who are NOT US-based Kindle owners, since the price is actually correct everywhere else and I don’t want to stiff you out of an ongoing sales price, tell you what–I will hand-sell you the book in the format of your choice until the Amazon price resets itself.
ETA: Ah, comprehension dawns! Poked around the other places where the book is on sale and determined that while Smashwords HAS deployed the price reset out to Sony, Sony hasn’t caught up yet. So the book is still $2.99 on the Sony store. So if you’re a reader on that platform, you can scarf it for the sales price from that site right now too.
When Sony finally catches up though, Amazon should reset too.

The clock is ticking down on the chance to grab the electronic edition of Faerie Blood for the bite-sized sum of $2.99, or the print edition for $15!
But there’s still time yet, so if you’d like Kendis and company on your ereader, or if you’d like me to send you a print copy, clickie right over to the book's official page and check out your options! Don’t forget either that I’ll be happy to hand-sell the ebook to you as well, in the format of your choice, if you don’t want to go through any of the major ebook vendors where it’s posted. (In fact, I’ve already done that for one reader who very kindly emailed to ask!)
Many, many thanks to all who’ve picked up the book in the last several days, which has made January my second-best sales month ever!

Because bad medical news makes me stressy and antsy, and because DAMMIT ALL next week is my birthday and I need a boost of spirits, and because I pretty much CAN, I am now putting Faerie Blood ON SALE!
Effective immediately (for values of ‘immediately’ meaning ‘as soon as all the ebook vending sites finish processing the price change’), the ebook edition of Faerie Blood will be available for $2.99. This price will be effective until the end of January (although if it causes a sharp enough spike in sales, I may run the sale longer). The sale price should be applicable to all sales on Amazon, B&N, iTunes, Smashwords, and Kobo, and for those of you who’d just as soon buy directly from me, I’ll happily hand-sell you the ebook in the format(s) of your choice for the same price.
Sale prices will also apply to the print editions I still have in my personal stock. $15 even to all comers and I’ll ship to you free of charge.
Signal boosts to all and sundry would be very, very appreciated, folks! Especially if you’ve already got your own copy of Faerie Blood. If you liked it, please tell folks. Reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, or any other place where Faerie Blood is sold would be awesome as well. Thanks all.
ETA: Might be helpful if I added LINKS, no? Here you go!
Those are all the main US links! Further links, including the various non-US Amazon, B&N, and iTunes sites, can be found on Faerie Blood's official page!
ETA #2: Some more links, hopefully to pull in folks where I’ve periodically sold copies outside the US!
And don’t forget, folks, you can also buy ebook copies directly from me if you’d rather not go through a commercial vendor! I’m the only source for the fancy PDFs with a high-res cover and a bonus interior pen-and-ink version of the cover art as well, which’d look awfully good on an iPad or a Kindle Fire or an Android tablet. Talk to me directly as well if you’d like a print copy of the book! Email to my angela.korrati address on gmail, or use my Contact form!

Hey all, just as a general reminder: I DO have print copies of Faerie Blood available to be hand-sold to anyone who wants one! So if ebooks aren’t your thing, but you’d still like Kendis and Christopher and Elessir on your shelf, I can help you out with that!
Normally I would ask $20 for any copy I’m mailing out, but for the month of December, I am going to waive my shipping charges. So whether I’m hand-delivering or mailing to you, the asking price until January 1, 2013, is $15 USD! (Or CAD, for my Canadian friends!)
Best way to pay me is via Paypal to my gmail address, annathepiper. Alternately, I will accept equivalent credit anywhere I can buy ebooks (first choices being the Barnes and Noble site and Kobo), or iTunes store credit! Lastly, I will also accept mailed checks or cash, just be advised that I won’t send out a book until I receive payment, so that’s the slowest option.
If you want a copy, please email me at the aforementioned email address to make arrangements! And thank you in advance for your support!

As of yesterday, a sale on the iTunes store officially kicked me over into three digits for Faerie Blood sales so far this year, since releasing the second edition! Many thanks to you, unknown iTunes reader! I hope you enjoy the book!
100 is not a huge number in the grand scheme of things–but honestly, given that I put it out there with the aid of Kickstarter and given that I am not terribly good at promoting myself (past posting here, and on my social networks), I’m quite happy with it! Monetarily speaking, tallying up my numbers, I see that I’ve made roughly $475 in sales. Psychologically speaking, though, there’s something quite satisfying about rolling over into three-digit territory. We’ll see how far I get by the end of the year!
Thanks again to all who have bought the new edition of the book, no matter what version you bought!
