I don’t know about where you live, but around here, B&N is about the only bookstore left, so I wish them well and I hope my teeny-tiny contribution to their bottom line helps. They are certainly helping mine. My royalty check this year will be split between getting a new computer system and finally fixing up the front yard (for which my wife has been patiently waiting 24 years).
A new version of The Many Adventures of Eaglethorpe Buxton is now available at Smashwords, and will soon be available everywhere else. If you are one of the 3 people 🙂 who purchased the first version, you can download an
error free updated version for free. The new version is labeled 11-20-12 on the copyright page.
Thanks to Moe the Cat for sending me a list of errata to be fixed (and this is not the first time he’s done so either). There is a special thanks to Moe, and my son John who performed a similar service, on the dedication page of the new version.
This image, like those of the first two books, is a combination of character art by Sade and a background image, the rights to which were purchased from Dreamstime.com.
This book will mark the natural conclusion of Eaglethorpe’s series. That is not to say that other stories might not come along in the future.
Yesterday I showed you the interior front art for Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Queen of Aerithraine, and today we have the interior front art for Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Amazons. Again, this image is by RPG art supplier Sade.
I have noticed that the more I write Eaglethorpe, the dumber I tend to make him. That is one of the things I am correcting as I revise (or at least am trying to correct). In the final book of the collection, Eaglethorpe must rise to his greatest. Tomorrow, I’ll show you the interior art for that one.
Here’s a look at the interior chapter front page for Eaglethorpe Buxton and the QUeen of Aerithraine. The graphic is by Sade, a rpg art company who also provided the elven princess and sorceress on the covers of the first two Eaglethorpe Buxton books.
Since I had covers for those two books, I decided that I would use them for interior covers and that I would add one for each of the additional books.
The draft of Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Amazons is done, but I’m going back through the first three books to make sure that they line up as far as tone and language. I think Amazons will have to have a lot more Eaglethorpe added to it.
Amazon just announced sales of ebooks to India. That’s wonderful news. I’ve sold a few books there already– even paper books. So, welcome any new readers from India. Download one of my free ebooks. You can find links on the “Books” page, and thanks for your support.
His Robot Girlfriend is now available for the first time from Lulu. You can find it by following this link. It’s just $4.50. As mentioned before, most of my readers are ebook aficionados. However if anyone knows of someone who would enjoy this book, please buy a copy and pass it on.
In the past, I’ve created several print editions with ISBN numbers that can be ordered from any bookstore. I did this mostly for extra exposure, as with the exception of about 80 copies of Princess of Amathar, nothing much has been sold. I’m going to leave those volumes out there, since they already are, but in the future, all paper books are going to be in the least expensive formats possible. The downside is that they will pretty much only be available here or direct from Lulu. That’s fine, since they aren’t selling anywhere else anyway. If you are interested, check out the books tab from the top of the page.
If you know someone who would like a copy of this sci-fi, rock ‘n roll, steampunk, detective story; or you would like a copy yourself, you can find it at this link.
The latest revision of Tesla’s Stepdaughters is now available for purchase wherever fine ebooks are sold. If you’ve already purchased and read Tesla’s Stepdaughters, it’s probably not worth your while to download it again (though it should be free to do so) unless you are just anal about having the most correct version of a book in your elibrary.
There were very few changes made– three or four incorrectly placed commas. The big thing was that I had not italicized the song titles and album titles in the book– and there are a lot of them. So now they are italicized.
Of course, the book now has the new cover, which I premiered here a few days ago. I liked the old cover all right, but I think this new one is much more striking.
If you haven’t read Tesla’s Stepdaughters, I invite you to, and let me know what you think. I’m not humble enough to deny that I enjoyed re-reading it. I think for 99 cents, its a good little sci-fi, rock ‘n’ roll, detective story.
Right now you can purchase the deluxe 81/2 by 11 inch edition of Astrid Maxxim Book 1, right here for the low price of 8.96. On the last page of this edition only, there is a surprise (hint, it’s a sneak peak of the cover of Astrid Maxxim Book 3!)
You can also purchase the new digest edition right here for the even lower price of $5.50. This is of course, the same text as the deluxe edition (but without the sneak cover peek). Fear not, though readers, I will reveal the cover to Astrid Maxxim right here at wesleyallison.com in a few short weeks.
