Would You Buy Eternity from This Guy?

Maybe, if you knew it was the ebook of Eternity’s End, on a Bookbub special, for just 99 copper coins, or if you prefer, 99 bottles of beer on the wall. Those beers won’t last long, so I’d get yours while you can.

If you’re reading my blog, chances are you already know this, but in case not:

“Ghost ship Impris, lost during the War of a Thousand Suns, is the stuff of legend. Her very name conjures the perils of interstellar travel. But no mere legend, she is real—glimpsed on occasion in the hyperdimensional Flux, and then gone. Her passengers and crew live on in a strange limbo, their fate hopelessly caught up in quantum defects in space-time, interstellar piracy, and galactic coverup…” [more]

Nominated for a Nebula, and other claims of wonderfulness. Actually, the cover by Stephen Youll is pretty amazing, I think.

Eternity's End new cover art

If you are the sort to favor print books or audiobooks, we’ve got those, too. In fact, you can even get autographed copies via my Star Rigger Bookstore—your choice of the first-edition Tor hardcover or the newer, even snazzier (in my opinion) Starstream trade paperback! Here’s the full wraparound cover:


(Oops, I just realized I don’t have the Tor hardcover listed yet. But I’ve got ’em. Email me if you’re interested.)

Crash, tinkle! Aaah, make that 98 bottles of beer on the wall. Stop throwing those dog toys, please!

Autographed Books for the Holidays?

Chaos Chronicles setEveryone loves autographed books! Especially sets of books. I know just where to start: The Star Rigger Bookstore

…where you can buy complete, autographed sets of the entire Chaos Chronicles (to date) in evocative Starstream Publications trade paperback editions… or the first four books in first-edition Tor hardcovers. Or signed hardcover sets of The Reefs of Time and Crucible of Time. Or autographed copies of Eternity’s End, in the shiny new trade paperback, or the first-edition Tor hardcover. And much, much more. All (most?) at amazing, mark-down prices. (Truly amazing—that they are marked down, I mean.)

Don’t see what you want? Shoot me an email. There’s a good chance I’ve got it and just haven’t listed it yet.

In case you’re wondering, StarRiggerBooks is me, using Etsy as a platform. So you’ll get the same personal service, satisfaction almost guaranteed, by using the Etsy order form. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t know how to give impersonal service. I am my only underpaid employee. And I defy you to find a marketing algorithm anywhere in this store. Go ahead and look! Seriously. Look.

To all you USians traveling for Thanksgiving, travel safely and enjoy your holiday, I hope with family and treasured friends.

Etsy and Me, and Coffee* Makes Three!

Chaos 1-4 Tor hardcovers

Back in the day, I used to sell autographed copies of my books from my website, by way of a simple pricelist page that could be printed and mailed to me. I didn’t sell a lot, but it helped me connect with some readers. Then the web got more complicated, and sales tax got more complicated, and I gave up on that model. Now, I’m selling autographed books through Etsy! Yes, that place you go to (statistically more likely if you are female) to buy crafts and things. It turns out you can sell books there, too, and a number of authors and booksellers do just that. Now I am, too.

Here’s what I’ve got in my StarRiggerBooks store so far:

All autographed and personalized as requested. Great gift ideas, right? Come and be my customer! Or share it with a book-loving friend!

*You didn’t think I could build an Etsy store without the help of coffee, did you?
