First of all, because I know you've been waiting for this, June's story will be sent out on the mailing list tomorrow night!
Sorry I let that one linger for so long; first I was out of the country, then I was sick, then I was releasing a book. It's been a busy month. But you'll be happy to know that, despite June's being three weeks late instead of one week as I predicted, July's short story will be available on the first of the month, as scheduled.
Tomorrow's short story will be Traveler's Gate, but July's won't be. Will it be Cradle, Elder Empire, or something else? Stay tuned to find out!
In other news, Unsouled has surpassed all my predictions for how well it's selling. I mean, you guys are amazing. It's sold over 1200 copies in less than a week, and it's on track to sell more than three hundred copies today alone. This is a better launch response than any book I've written since House of Blades.
I'll have to respond to that enthusiasm somehow.
Anyway, thanks for reading my books! Thanks for recommending them to your friends, for writing reviews, for bugging people on reddit to read them. It's almost overwhelming--I was trawling through Amazon yesterday, looking for a book to read, and in one of the top reviews of someone else's story, the reviewer mentioned me by name. He was including me in a list of fantasy authors that he thought had done great work.
That's mind-blowing. Equally astounding is that so many people out there enjoy my stories enough that they're willing to pay me for them. It's bizarre.
So from the bottom of my cold, green, shrunken heart, I thank you.
