I said I'd be posting a specially thought-of passage from near the end of the book. Spoilers are redacted.

Here it is )

NaNoWriMo 2016

In light of the disappointing election results in the USA, I have decided to add an extra chapter-thing to the end of my book, as part of an extended denoument. I'll be writing it tonight, as I may not remember later in the month. It will also be the only extract from the book published directly here and on LJ (with crucial plot details redacted, 'cos y'know, spoilers)

Have Sword & Sorcery: Will Travel™

My computer is being slow and the weather is so nice I'm feeling unjustifiably lazy. Still, eBooks were promised, and eBooks you shall get:
Books VII and VIII of Have Sword & Sorcery: Will Travel™ are now available as eBooks at Lulu, Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and maybe some others.
Well, in theory they are anyway, I don't know how long it'll take them to actually appear on the sites, but they are OFFICIALLY available. The rest of the series will follow suit tomorrow (probably in reverse order).
Remember - you can only get the Trilogies and their exclusive short stories in dead-tree format!

Have Sword & Sorcery: Will Travel™

Well, that took longer than expected. Nevertheless, Book VIII is now available to buy from Lulu.com.

The main reason it took so long is that Lulu have changed their formats, and so, like a book series that changes the cover style whenever it's reprinted, all the books are now available in the same size! Yes, instead of the unwieldy 6"x9", all the single books are now the same size as a normal novel (4.25"x6.87"). The trilogies will remain larger, at A5 size (5.8"x8.5"), to cut down on spine thickness.

Currently e-books are not available, but they will start to be made available again on Friday.
