There’s a lot of interesting stuff here, but mostly this website exists as a place for the Green Comet trilogy and my other novels to live.
These free novels, Creative Commons licensed Green Comet, and its sequels Parasite Puppeteers and The Francesians, tell an expansive story of love and adventure on an inhabited comet. To learn more about the trilogy, and for samples, visit the Welcome page. To download the books, visit the Books for Free page. The novels The Plainsrunner, The Prime, Sunward and the Vin Stone series are available through the Books for Sale page. To listen to the Okanagan Reader, visit the Audio page.
The ebook of Vin Stone – Night Soil has been published. So far it is available at Kobo. You really should go and have a look, and then, at such a low price as that, buy it. Then, of course, you will want to write a review of it, telling everyone what a great story it is and how masterfully told. If you are one of the people who received an advance readers copy (ARC) then you can go directly to the review stage without even having to buy the book, although, given that I wrote the first draft with a fountain pen, that is an almost embarrassingly low price.
In this book, Vin Stone engages in some uncharacteristic derring-do, so you should really check it out.
I might as well put up another chapter of the recording of Vin Stone – Night Soil. Since I’m not posting Okanagan Reader recordings for a while, I might as well post a few of the ones I am doing. Today’s reading is chapter six. It’s a short chapter that comes in at only about eight minutes.
There won’t be an Okanagan Reader post this week because I have to start recording my novel Vin Stone – Night Soil. How about if, instead of posting a regular reading, I post the first chapter of this novel? That sounds like a great idea. Now, how do I do that again?
I have mailed out copies of Vin Stone – Night Soil to those people who requested an advance readers copy. I hope to hear back from some of them with reports of errors and typos so I can correct them before I send it to the distributor. Actually, I hope to hear back with glowing compliments, but let’s be realistic.-) This is a tidy little book, coming in at under 60,000 words. I’m glad that it did that because I found it hard to write while we were homeless for several months and I do like to get them out well before the end of the year. I need that time to record the audiobook and get a few weeks of rest before I start writing the next one.
This week’s reading is part three of Vanishing Act by Kelly Link. It is part of a short story collection called Stranger Things Happen. It’s about twenty-three minutes long. Like other Okanagan Reader stories it is licensed Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike. You can find my review of the book here. Listen to this and other stories on the Audio page.
