Dagan Books 3-for-2 eBook Sale

Dagan Books 3-for-2 eBook Bundle Sale

In order to celebrate the release of their new Bibliotheca Fantastica anthology tomorrow, Dagan Books is having a special 3-for-2 eBook sale! So why am I sharing this cool deal? A couple of reasons!

  1. Dagan Books is a great independent publisher of “weird, wicked, beautiful, and brilliant books.” I respect the hell out of what Carrie and the rest of the Dagan staff do. Why wouldn’t you want to support them? Yeah, that’s right. You couldn’t think of a reason either.
  2. And more selfishly, my story “Jewel of Tahn-Vinh” is included in their IN SITU anthology. It just so happens to be one of the eBooks included in this 3-for-2 sale.

There ya go. Two great reasons for why you should jump on this deal (and buy Bibliotheca Fantastica when it comes out)! You’d be supporting a great publisher as well as yours truly. It goes without saying that you’d be getting three great anthologies for the price of two. (Free stuff, yo.)

Dagan Books’ 3-for-2 eBook Sale includes:

FISH, edited by Carrie Cuinn & KV Taylor; Cover by Galen Dara.

In Situ is Now Available!

In SituIn Situ, a new science fiction anthology from Dagan Books that is centered around archaeology, is now available for purchase! The wait is over!

According to the publisher, In Situ is loaded with “science fiction stories featuring alien archeology, hidden mysteries, and things that are better off left buried. […] These fifteen evocative science fiction stories will take you from dusty archaeologists digging up our alien past into a distant future where we’ve become the relics. Thought-provoking and entertaining, IN SITU explores science, theology, preservation, and the art of alien finance, in a whole new way.”

My story, “Jewel of Tahn-Vinh” is a science fiction horror story about things left adrift in the depths of space that  are better left alone. There are other great stories in the anthology, and I have to say that Ken Liu’s “You’ll Always Have the Burden With You” is quite fantastic.

In Situ is available in DRM-free ePub format for only $3.99.

To get a copy for Kindle, buy it here.

And the trade paperback is also available from Amazon.

 

My First Interview & Some Writing Updates

My first interview is up at the Dagan Books website. My first ever. I think it’s really cool that all the authors included in the In Situ anthology are being interviewed. It adds a little bit of personal flavor to the anthology if you can get a glimpse into the authors’ heads. At the very least, I hope I don’t come across as boring or dumb.

Sadly, the dumb part may not be avoidable. I just headed over there and realized that my spell checker changed the name of my story on me. It’s supposed to be “Jewel of Tahn-Vinh” not “Than-Vinh.” Also the website listed isn’t current anymore. I switched to this current site and forgot to to mention it to Dagan Books. Whoops. Should be simple enough to get proper info put in the interview though.

I took a break over the weekend and didn’t work on The Price of Loyalty outline. I’d been working on it for over a week straight and I needed a bit of a break. I dove right back into it. I got a good chunk of it done today. I’m actually over the 40,000 word mark for the outline, but that’s okay. It just makes the actual writing part that much easier. I’m getting near the climax and the main character is going to get the emotional shit kicked outta him. Nothing hurts more than broken trust and expectations.

Project: The Price of Loyalty outline

Deadline: N/A (maybe 6/1)

Word count: 8,066 (since 4/20)

In Situ Cover Art

This news is a couple of days old, but the cover art for the upcoming Dagan Books anthology In Situ is available. Here’s a slightly scaled down version of the full size image.

Personally, I think the cover looks amazing. My story “Jewel of Tahn-Vinh” is included in the anthology, and it’s scheduled to be released in May 2011. I’ll also have an interview up on the Dagan Books website sometime in the near future. I probably should the dates down… Oh well. Enjoy the cool art!
