Okay the paperback editions of the Arisen series are here! Glynn did just an amazing job of book design on these, and they came out really beautiful (and just like we want them). And the prices aren't terrible (currently $8.99 - $11.59).
Since I've spent years now putting up digital covers of the digital editions of my books, here instead are links to the books presented as actual photographs of the physical objects, and me with ’em. Just click on the book to go to the Amazon page. (*)
And if you missed my fiery polemic about what a glorious inversion this represents, here's a bit of that, and a link to the rest:
This, to my mind, is well beyond a revolution it's little short of a miracle. Here I have in hand beautiful paperback editions of the first half and a bit (about 500,000 words) of the epic story that Glynn and I have spent the last two years of our lives imagining. The distribution platform provided by Amazon (who sell 41% of new books in the U.S.) is about to make them available to 2.4 trillion Internet users. This, distribution, is why you used to need, absolutely, a publisher; and why now, absolutely, you don't.
And we own the complete rights to these, our intellectual property, for all time as opposed to giving up all conceivable rights to them until 70 years after our natural deaths in exchange for, on a good day, 8.5% of the cover price of any copies the publisher manages to shift.
Finally, okay, here are the plain links for ease of use:
I don't have my Omnibus copy anymore I was incredibly proud to give it to a reader, Iraq war veteran, and totally bad-ass military contractor who came through London on his way back from Baghdad three nights ago; I fared rather better, receiving from him a PHU hat, beloved of special operators and mil-contractors worldwide. So, anyway, for the Omnibus, click on my face!
