rolanni: (lit'rary moon)

So, things have been happening.

I shall sum up.

1.  The contract for A Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume Three arrived, was read, signed and put on the bus to Madame the Agent's office in New York.

2.  Last night, we turned in the manuscript for A Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume Three (I adore email submissions).  Here is the table of contents, as turned in and bearing in mind that the order may change:

Authors' Foreword
Code of Honor
Guaranteed Delivery
Intelligent Design
Out of True
Roving Gambler
King of the Cats
Kin Ties
The Rifle's First Wife
The Space at Tinsori Light
Landed Alien
Moon's Honor
Quick Working Glossary

3.  Return word from Madame the Editor is that the book may be available as soon as Summer 2015.

4.  Because of the events above, "Code of Honor," "Roving Gambler," and "The Rifle's First Wife" will be vanishing from Splinter Universe realsoonnow.

5.  But! There's still plenty to read on Splinter Universe, including Steve's new novel project, Quicksliver, and several guest stories, including:  "Leaving Via Callia" by Alma Alexander; "2 Pi to Live," and "Riverweave," by EC Ambrose.

5a.  The first three chapters of Quicksliver are up now, for your reading pleasure:

Chapter One

Chapter Two

Chapter Three

6.  This morning, we have entertained the contractor, who was very taken with Trooper (Sprite hid; Scrabble hid; Mozart was napping in my his rocker and didn't even wake up).  This afternoon, Mozart has an appointment with the hairdresser, for a modified lion cut, which he will hate, but for which he has only himself to blame.

7.  This evening, I'll return to working on the novel.  Nope, no title yet.  When one breaks, you'll hear about it here.

Today's blog title comes to you from Tracy Chapman, "Mountains of Things."  Here's your link.

rolanni: (Surprise!)

1.  Today's USA Today "Happy Ever After" column features an interview with Nalini Singh, author of the Psy/Changeling and Guild Hunter series.

2. Sherman's Bookstore, which has been an independent Maine bookstore since 1886, is opening its fifth location, at 43 Exchange Street, in Portland, on April 1.  Sherman's also has locations in Bar Harbor, Freeport, Camden, and Boothbay Harbor.

3.  Speaking of Boothbay Harbor, which I have to resist typing as it's said ("Boothbee Harbor") -- Steve and I will be taking part in the Books at Boothbay Celebration on July 12.  The event will take place at the Boothbay Railway Village and will be in two sessions, with children's and YA authors signing from 9-noon, and adult and non-fiction authors signing from 1-4.  This is Books at Boothbay's tenth anniversary, and it ought to be a lot of fun.  Here's the link.

4.  Y'all know that honeybees have been having a bad time of it over the last few years.  If you want to cut them a break and make sure they have something to drink, you can make a bee waterer.  Here's how.

5.  The Hugo nomination period ends on March 31 -- that's next Monday!  Here's the rules.

Note to Universe:  I really do need my brain back now, thanks.

rolanni: (what it's like)

2.  This link takes you to a page featuring thumbnails of various pieces of art by Anne Lemanski. OPHIOPHOBES TAKE NOTE: There are snakes involved. They're quite attractive snakes, and they're made out of copper and paper, but snakes they are.  Here's your link.

3.  Waterville area folks -- Dragon Egg Hunt in preparation for the Waterville Opera House presentation of SHREK.  Here's that link.

4.  The Hugo Nomination Period ends on March 31.  If you were a member of last year's WorldCon, in San Antonio; if you're a member of this year's WorldCon, in London; if you're a member of next year's WorldCon, in Spokane, you are eligible to nominate for the Hugos.  Here's the link to the rules.  On the left hand side of that page, you'll find links to the 2014 nomination form and the Retro Hugo nomination form, and instructions for the whole batch.

5.  Between Wednesday and Thursday here in Central Maine, we had a Lot of Snow (oh, OK; somewhere between 10.5 and 15 inches, it says here.)  I can't find any official numbers, so we'll just leave it there.  Today is sunny and cold.  Tomorrow, we have an ice storm on the schedule.

Winter can get over itself Any Time Now.

Today's blog post title comes from "Steel River," by Chris Rea.  Here's a link.  Warning:  This is a song that always makes me cry, so possibly NSFW.

rolanni: (Carousel beauty)

A disordered list of stuff, because I'm feeling disordered this morning.

1.  The Nebula Ballot has been announced.  Here's your link.  Congratulations to all the nominees!

2.  If you've read Carousel Sun, please consider placing a review on Amazon, BN, Goodreads, &c.  I'm grateful to those who have already taken the time to review.  If you aren't comfortable writing a review, please consider recommending Sun and Tides to your genre-reading friends (books make great gifts!).

2a.  Uncle Hugo's SF Bookstore still has signed copies of Carousel Sun in stock, as well as many other Lee-and-Miller titles.  Here's your link.

3.  If you've read Necessity's Child, please consider writing a review for it, as above.  Thank you.

4.  The National Carousel Association's 2014 Convention will visit ten carousels in the NYC area, including Jane's Carousel, the Central Park Carousel, and more!  Here's your link.

5.  It snowed last night, about an inch.  Today it's slightly sunny, but cold.

6.  Hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday.

rolanni: (Tea and dragon)

Oh, let's see. . .

1.  If you haven't read "The Gift of Music," set in Archers Beach back some few years, and concerning the doin's of one Andy LaPierre, who appears in Carousel Sun -- your time is running out.  On February 15, another yummy free story will come up at, and "Music" will go away.

2.  Of course y'all have been reading Laura Anne Gilman's Cosa Nostradamus novels right along.  (You haven't?  The first one is Staying Dead. . . .  Well? What are you waiting for?)  And I know you're aware that last year Laura Anne Kickstarted and published two novellas in that universe, featuring justly-famous half-faun/half-human tough-PI-with-a-gooey-center Danny Hendrickson, and his human partner, Ellen -- "Miles to Go" and "Promises to Keep" -- which I, personally, enjoyed the heck out of.

What you may not be aware of is that she's doing it again -- two more novellas following Ellen and Danny as they try their damnedest to save people who need saving, whether they know it or not.  The Kickstarter only has another five days to go, so if you want in on this, Now is the Hour.  Here's your link.

3.  Those who are going to Boskone, and who had hoped to have their copy of Carousel Sun signed -- despair not!  Steve will be carrying signed bookplates and will happily give you one.  Don't be shy; just step up and ask.

4.  If you have read Carousel Sun, please consider posting a(n honest) review on BN, Amazon, Goodreads, and/or the review site of your choice.  Thanks!

5.  I believe that Management does intend to issue an eArc for Carousel Seas.  I don't know when, though typically eArcs seem to appear from three to four months in advance of the print edition.  Seas is a January 2015 book, so. . .September/October, 2014?

rolanni: (Necessity's Child)

1.  In light of Mozart's continued ill health, I will not be attending Boskone.  Steve is still planning to attend.  If Mozart takes a amazing turn for the better, I'll come down with him and cut a swath through the dealer's room, but at this point, that's not the way the smart money bets.  Y'all have a good time for me.

2.  "The Gift of Music," by Sharon Lee is available to be read, obligation-free, at  "Gift" takes place in Archers Beach, Maine.

3.  The Compleat List of Baen Hugo Eligible Works published by Baen authors is here.

4.  All pre-ordered signed and/or personalized copies of Carousel Sun have been mailed.

5.  Have I mentioned how very, very fond I am of this song?

rolanni: (Reading is sexy)

1.  You have until midnight, Central Time, on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, to order your signed and personalized copy of Carousel Sun from Uncle Hugo's Science Fiction Bookstore in Minneapolis. The devilish details are here. If you want to cut to the chase, here's the link to Uncle Hugo's Lee and Miller catalog page.

For the purposes of this discussion “personalized” means that you have asked the author to write something special on the title page of your book, in addition to their name.

1a. If you wish to pre-order an autographed (i.e. not personalized), you may do so at this link. The deadline for pre-ordering a signed copy is January 10, to give Uncle Hugo time to place the order, the printer to ship the books to Maine, to be autographed, and then sent on their way to Minneapolis. This is not a trivial thing we're undertaking here, so everybody keep a grip on your good humor and I'll endeavor to do the same.

2. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. is looking for an editor for the Bulletin. Job requirements are here. You do not have to be a SFWA member to apply. Application deadline is January 8, 2014.

3. For those who have been following the on-going saga -- I have, as of this afternoon, completed signing Steve and me up for health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. We have achieved a Silver Plan, which provides much more coverage than we had with Anthem, while costing about $250 less per month, in premiums. There will also be a minor break in the cost of meds and doctor visits. Now, all I have to do is gather together my "proofs" for this year's earnings and write a letter explaining (with twenty-seven eight by ten color glossy photographs, with circles and arrows...) why exactly it is that I believe we will make less money in 2014 than in 2013. Piece o'cake.

4. As many of us enter a season of gift-giving, I will take this opportunity to remind you that Books Make Wonderful Gifts! Every single novel that Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, and Sharon Lee, too, have ever written are in print at! this! moment! so you may be as expansive in your giving as you like. And remember! Those novels are also available electronically, either directly from Baen, or from your favorite electronic bookstore. Also! All of the Lee-and-Miller, and Lee, and Miller chapbooks ever written are likewise available in electronic format -- from BN, from Amazon, and from Smashwords. Go to Pinbeam Books for handy buy links.

5. It has been borne in upon me that it wasn't particularly clever to migrate all of my heavy lifting, so to speak, to my right hand.  Not too many years ago, I could write, legibly, if not elegantly, with my left hand.  My new hobby for 2014 will be to see if I can recapture that skill.

rolanni: (Reading is sexy)

1.  You have ONLY until midnight, Eastern Time, on Friday, December 6 to enter to win one of five FREE audio editions of Trade SecretThe contest rules and entry portal are here. We're getting some really interesting anecdotes over there -- go ahead and add yours.

2.  You have until midnight, Central Time, on Tuesday, December 31, to order a signed and personalized copy of the upcoming trade paper release of Carousel Sun, from Uncle Hugo's SF Bookstore.  Particulars here.

3.  The eARC of Carousel Sun is now available, in every format known to Man or Turtle directly from Baen.  Here's the link.

4.  Been meaning to get someone hooked on the Liaden Universe®?  Remember that Agent of Change and Fledgling are available as free downloads, direct from Baen, as well as from Amazon, BN, iTunes, and other venues too numerous to mention.

5.  Several folks have contacted me, asking for the best address to which to send seasonal greetings.   Steve and I, and the cats, are pleased to receive mail at PO Box 1586, Waterville ME 04903-1586.  Thank you for asking.

rolanni: (crescent)

1.  "Out of True" may now be accessed from Baen's front page.  Here's the link.  Remember, you need to scroll down a bit before the story starts.

2.  Rumor is that t The ebook edition of Trade Secret will be is available today, October 16. Here's the link.

3.  Go look at this comic; from Bill WattersonEDITED TO ADD: the text of which was taken from a 1990 speech given by Bill Watterson; comic drawn by Gavin Aung Than. Yes, now.  The rest of the list will wait until you get back. 

4.  My colleague Morgan Keyes has a book coming out today, in hardcover and as an ebook -- Darkbeast Rebellion sequel to Darkbeast. Also, for those of you who collect Reasons Why Writers Drink, there's a discussion of the distribution problems surrounding the first book at the author's blog.  Here's that link.

5.  I have in my possession the DVD of a talk I did at the Fairfield Historical Society in May 2010.  I also have in my hand permission from the pertinent cable TV company to use "some" of that footage for PR purposes.  Who has Mad Video Editing Skillz and the time to whip a portion of this thing into shape for Youtube?

...the Buy All the Things! edition

1.  Have you remembered to purchase:
Moon's Honor   |Kindle| |Nook|
Technical Details |Kindle| |Nook|
Surfside |Kindle| |Nook|

2.  Have you cruised the Pinbeam Books eCatalog to make sure you have all available Lee and Miller, and Lee, and Miller eChapbooks?

3.  Have you preordered your signed edition of Liaden Universe® novel Trade Secret, the sequel to Balance of Trade from Uncle Hugo?

4.  Have you remembered to buy someone you love a present, just because?  Tying this into the theme -- Books make wonderful presents!

5.  "The Wolf's Bride" wants to be a novel.  Argh.

rolanni: (i've often seen a cat without a smile)

1.  Carousel Sun, the sequel to Carousel Tides, is now available for pre-order from the bookstore of your choice (NOTE:  This refers to the trade paper edition, only -- which is to say:  you may not pre-order the ebook).

2.  Madame the Editor has stated that there will be an eArc edition of Sun. No, I don't know when, but figure four to six months out from the publication date in early February.

3.  I am behind in mentioning that Heart of Briar, the first book in Laura Anne Gilman's Portals duology, is now on the shelves of bookstores everywhere!  I read portions of this novel as it was being written and enjoyed the heck out of it.  I think you will, too, but judge for yourself!  There's an excerpt here.  Laura Anne will also be doing signings and readings -- and she Might Just Be! in your area.  Here's the full list of where-and-when.

4.  The new memorial bridge spanning the Piscataqua River to connect Kittery, Maine with Portsmouth, New Hampshire is now open -- and here are the pictures to prove it!

5.  I've been there and over there, too, but not so much here, lately.  I intend to do an overview post to catch y'all up -- but not this afternoon. This afternoon, I am calling the hospital billing office, coping with the Gigormous Pile of Dirty Dishes which has taken over the kitchen sink, and seeing if I can get a short story out of Andy LaPierre.  No.  No, the glamor never does diminish around these parts.


rolanni: (Mozart Easter 2009)

1.  I want to thank those who have supported my efforts in the Clarion West Write-a-Thon.  Together, so far, we've raised $87 toward toward the organization's operating costs..  I should say here that donations to Clarion West are tax deductible.  More information about the Write-a-Thon and Clarion West here, and here.  My personal participating author page is here.

2.  Those of you in or near Atlanta, Georgia may want to mark your calendars for Friday, August 2 from 8-10 p.m.  My buddy Ed DeGruy and his photography partner Aubrey Bell, will be having their first solo show at the Doo Gallery (part of the DooGood Society).  The address is 205 Holtzclaw st. Unit J, Atlanta, Georgia. There will be refreshments, and art, and interesting people present.  More information here.

3. I have here on my floor (because Trooper has made the top of both file cabinets his own by the simple expedient of pushing all the Stuff onto the floor) an old black-and-white Nook ebook reader.  I have no more use for it; frankly, it may not even work.  Anybody either (1) want it  or (2) know if there's anything like the used cellphone programs for ereaders?   The Nook has found a home!

4.  Not for the faint of heart:  Photographs of Lac-Megantic, before the explosion -- and after.

5.  Mozart declined to have his picture taken this morning, so here's a picture of Trooper on the cat tree:

2.  I am this year participating in the Clarion West Write-a-Thon fund raiser.  It's sort of like a walkathon, only writers solicit sponsors for words written/goals accomplished instead of miles walked.  The whole thing is explained here.  If you'd like to sponsor me as I complete Carousel Seas, you may do so here.  If you're a writer, please consider signing up to participate.

3.  I have received confirmation that Carousel Sun, the sequel to Carousel Tides, continuing the story of Kate Archer, the Guardian of Archers Beach, on the Maine Coast, will be published on February 4, 2014.  Mark your calendars.

4.  The new segment of the on-going Liaden Universe® World Tour is coming together nicely, with stops in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey confirmed.  The tour will kick off on Halloween at Pandemonium Books, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and finish at PhilCon, November 8-10.  The entire tour will be posted once the last couple loose ends are nailed down.

5.  Here, have a baby ferret

1.  This year, I'm participating in the Clarion West Write-a-Thon.  This is Clarion West's major annual fundraising event; all money raised goes to support the workshop that has produced dozens of professional writers and changed the lives of thousands.

2.  As you may know, Mike Brotherton is one of the leaders of the LaunchPad Astronomy Workshop for Science Fiction writers.  The workshop had previously been partially funded through NASA and the NSF.  Funding cuts at those agencies means that LaunchPad is looking for funds elsewhere.

3.  If you like trivia contests, you may want to put daily play at onto your schedule.  For every trivia question answered (two are posted each day), 10 pieces of kibble are donated to a shelter dog/cat.  The kibble is donated whether your answer is right or wrong.

4.  Also, remember, where every correct answer wins 10 grains of rice to the World Food Programme to help end hunger.  You can rack up 1,000 grains of rice without breaking a sweat, so remember to set a timer before you start to play.

5.  Another picture from the BEA, this one taken at Saturday's book signing:

"So, you're thinking world domination?" he murmured.

"Who wants all that work?"

rolanni: (Saving world)

1.  The Peavey, newsletter of the Maine Writers and Publishers Association features some Liaden news, as well as news and notes from all points of the Maine Writing/Publishing Geography.  This link might work...

2.  A librarian friend sends us the following Liaden mention from Public Libraries, the Under the Radar Column, which this month deals with Sci-Fi you might have missed:

"The Liaden series by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller was initially released in the late eighties, but was never a big success. However Lee and Miller continued to write them, much to the delight of a dedicated group of fans. Baen has re-released all of the original books, as well as several new titles and the many short stories, in both print and digital editions. Lee and Miller continue to add to their entrancing space opera with the recent YA friendly Ghost Ship (2011) and Dragon Ship (2012)."

3.  I usually give clothes I no longer want/that no longer fit to Goodwill in Waterville, but I find that I have two t-shirts, size medium, that I don't think I'd better donate, given the, err, political climate.  Does anyone want a MacHall Cthuhlu "Sell your soul for a cookie?" t-shirt and/or a Balticon 43 (the year Charlie Stross was GOH) t-shirt?  If you can use these shirts -- both black, both in good, wearable condition -- drop me a note at rolanniATkorvalDOTcom and we'll work something out.

4.  For those keeping score, we will on Monday-coming have in this house, in order of appearance: 1. the plumbers, 2. the electrician, 3. the flooring crew, 4. The plumbers.  I'm thinking Socks is going to have to get in a temp-cat to help him keep it all under proper supervision.

5.  In 12 days I'll be in Archers Beach.

rolanni: (juggling the moons)

1.  Free Reading!  "Landed Alien," a Liaden Universe® short story, is now up and waiting for you to read it, right here (scroll down to get to the story).

2.  The ebook edition of Dragon Ship is now available for purchase from Baen Ebooks.  This edition does fix the continuity errors which were present in the eArc and is, to the best of my knowledge, the exact words, in the exact order that they appear in the hardcover edition.

3.  The authors' working notes for Mouse and Dragon are still on auction for the next 23-ish hours.  Current bid is $198.75 $202.50  Will it break $200 $225?  The uncertainty!  The drama!  The pretty green folder -- here, take a look.

4.  The inventory of Things Ruined In the Flood, including books that are still wet, continues.  I am a Virgo, and therefore have a high tolerance for fiddly little details, but, yanno?  Enough is enough, already.

5.  In related news, the painter just phoned to say that she's starting work tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.  The electrician is due at 9:30.  Socks is gonna have some Serious Supervising to do.

1. As of yesterday, March 3, Mr. Blyly at Uncle Hugo’s had in hand orders for 294 signed editions of Dragon Ship. This means that he only has 106 copies left to place of his promised 400. If you’re coming in late, and you want a autographed hardcover copy of Dragon Ship to put on the shelf next to your autographed hardcover of Ghost Ship, Now Is The Hour. Here’s the link to the original post, Explaining All. Here’s the link to the pre-order page at Uncle Hugo’s.

2. Judith Tarr’s Kickstarter Campaign is going great guns. Judy’s only needs $649 to make her goal of $3500 for production of her novel Living in Threes. Here’s the link. You know you want a new Judith Tarr book! So, what are you waiting for?

3. The nomination period for the annual SF Site Readers Choice Awards for best novel of 2011 nomination period is open until March 9 (that’s Friday!). Rules and how to nominate the best books of 2011 here (Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller was published in August, 2011).

4. The Hugo Administrators want you to know that the Hugo Nominations deadline is March 11 (that’s next Sunday!). Here are the rules. Here’s a list of eligible Lee-and-Miller, and Miller, titles.

5. The Locus Reader Poll for Best of Everything in SF and Fantasy for 2012 is open until April 15. Here’s the link. The list of Lee-and-Miller, and Miller titles in #4 above will be useful here, too. Though Locus helpfully seeds its poll with titles of books its staff finds worthy, you don’t need to choose from among them; the poll also offers ample write-in spaces. You do not need to subscribe to Locus in order to vote. Please only vote once, and please, please, I beg of you — be truthful regarding your gender.

1.  Mr. Blyly at Uncle Hugo’s reports that, of the 400 signed editions of Dragon Ship assigned to his care, 225 were placed in the first 48 hours of the pre-order period.  This leaves only ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY-FIVE (175) books left for adoption.  If you were planning on pre-ordering a signed edition of Lee-and-Miller’s Dragon Ship, the exciting! follow-on to Ghost Ship — you really do need to act with alacrity.

2.  We have thus far collected, through February sales of The Cat’s Job, $135.93 in donations to Planned Parenthood for their breast cancer screening program.  Thank you all for your generosity.  For those coming in late, here’s the original post for this fund-raiser, which runs through Leap Day, Wednesday, February 29

3.  Judy Tarr, writing as Judith Tarr, author of manymany fine books, as you don’t need me to tell you, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the second draft and the artwork for her novel Living in Threes.  For a five-buck buy-in supporters will receive an ebook edition of the completed work.  Judy was asking for a paltry $3,500 to fund this project, and she only lacks $1,290 to hit her goal, three days into the campaign.  This?  Is where the fun starts.  I wonder how high over the goal this project will leap.  Go on over and give Judy a boost, why not?  Here’s the link.

4.  I? Scrod the ankle yesterday and so today I’ll be writing from the couch, on The Leewit.  I’ll be checking in from time to time, so tell me something cool in comments, to help take my mind off my troubles.  In the meantime — fascinating stuff in the reading thread!

5.  What?  It’s the discount edition.
