  1. What legal problems are you afraid of, by the way? I'm a Law grad and I have no idea why you're so worried. . .
  2. C. S. Friedman recently posted this on her Facebook page, saying that it helped her a lot for her Kindle project:
  3. Don't give up and keep fighting the good fight! Forwarded my submission to another agent on May 12th and still waiting to hear back from him. Meanwhile, my Blademaster novella is up to 68 manuscript pages (over 18,000 words). I'm leaving on a 3-week roadtrip this Sunday and I'm hoping to finish the first draft before returning home.
  4. Unless it becomes a HUGE success, you shouldn't worry overmuch. Your writers would sue the shit out of you if you tried to screw them and then you'd have no money left.
  5. Check this Amazon link and use the "Look inside" function: https://www.amazon.com/Joker-Moon-Wild-Cards-Book-ebook/dp/B08GJR6DQS/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=wild+cards&qid=1623073331&s=books&sr=1-3&asin=1250168015&revisionId=&format=4&depth=1 You don't need to scroll down far to get to the Copyright Acknowledgements page.
  6. Just checked GRRM's Wild Cards books and each writer gets the copyright acknowledgement for the story they wrote.
  7. Just finished Peter V. Brett's forthcoming The Desert Prince, which comes out in August. A little too much teenage angst for my taste and too YA in style and tone, but it sets the stage for what should be an interesting set of sequels. You can read my spoiler-free review here.
  8. Yeah, saw that on FB earlier today. Looking forward to it!
  9. Not sure if that's the case here, but often it has to do with not having a book deal. Regarding Tregillis, I absolutely loved the Milkweed Triptych series, but the Alchemy War didn't do so well in terms of numbers. There just might be little interest in his works anymore. Also, keep in mind that the pandemic has been hard on everyone. Could be that many authors didn't have the heart to write much in the last 16 months or so. Which would explain their lack of progress and reticence to engage with fans online.
  10. Can you track the number of preorders? If so, are you satisfied with those sales?
  11. N. K. Jemisin's The City We Became is 3.99$ on Kindle.
  12. The Dreaming Kind, a new collection of short fiction by C. S. Friedman, is 2.99$ on Kindle.
  13. R. F. Kuang's The Dragon Republic is 1.99$ on Kindle.
