One particular short story

One of the short stories that I had posted on this site will soon be published in an anthology (woohoo), so I've taken it down.

Twittering

Behold!  I have opened a Twitter account

Exciting stuff.  I now have the appropriate venue for small observations like That dude at the bus stop was totally an orc in another life, and My cat just fell off

Giveaway and guest post

The second giveaway is over (congrats to the winner in Canada; the book will be on the way soon).  Interestingly enough, the number of people who entered this time was just a few dozen short of last time: over 1100…

Totally normal

The Amazon page finally looks like you'd expect it to, with books in stock and no bizarre ETA. 

There's also a used copy available from the UK (?), and a new copy that ships from Japan (??), along with several…

Success! Mostly!

The era of pre-order is over!  The book can now be bought on Amazon like any other. 

...Except it says "Usually ships within 1 to 3 months."  That part's a little weird. 

Apparently the emails sent to people…

I have learned a thing

It turns out that Amazon release dates are not as smooth and seamless as one might expect.  Today is in fact the 27th, but the page still says to pre-order the book.  (Because, you see, it comes out on the…
