canada day


And for all my Canadian friends, a belated Canada Day present!

I was up until stupid-o’clock in the morning between Monday night and Tuesday morning, along with several other teammates, launching a shiny new thing: we opened up our streaming games service, Big Fish Instant Games, for Canadian users!

So now, if you’re a PC user or an owner of an Android device in either the States or Canada, for a small monthly fee you can have access to any game in our streaming catalogue. You can save your progress and pick it up again across devices and computers, even! (It IS PC and Android only right now, folks, my apologies on that–as a Mac user and owner of iOS devices, I want to see us streaming games onto those platforms too! But we’re working on that part.)

Anyway, Canadians, go clickie and have a look! You don’t have to fork over any money just to try out the system. You can even play games for a short time without making an account, and if you like what you see, then you can make a trial account and have full access to all the games for a week. And look at it this way–if you subscribe, you can consider it a small loan to me, given the high likelihood I’ll be channeling that money right back into fine Canadian traditional music, Montreal-style bagels, and Growers cider. ;D Everybody wins!

Faerie Blood

Because it’s CANADA DAY, a Faerie Blood coupon!

Because it’s Canada Day, and I have a well-documented love of things Canadian (namely, trad music, bouzouki players, Montreal-style bagels, and maple whiskey), and because I do have a Canadian as the male lead character in Faerie Blood

Here, have a Smashwords exclusive coupon to celebrate Canada! Coupon code HE37T will get you 20 percent off of Faerie Blood‘s current price if you buy the book from Smashwords right over here!

I don’t have an easy way of generating coupons on the other channels I sell the book through–so I will also honor the 20 percent reduction for anyone who wants to buy the book directly from me in the format of their choice. (And yes, this includes the print editions. Of which I have only SEVEN left in the current print run, so if you want one, now would be a REALLY good time to jump on it!)

This price will be in effect until EOD Friday, July 5th! (I.e., pretty much up until Dara and I go to Canada this coming weekend!)

Please feel free to spread the word, and enjoy, all! Particularly if you’re Canadian.
