Cocktails at the Cocteau

by wjw on April 20, 2017

This coming Sunday, 23 April, at 1pm, I will be participating in an Author Event at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe.

I’ll be there with fellow authors Ian Tregillis and EM Tippetts, for a joint interview followed by a signing.

It should be fun!  Come join us!

There will be cocktails! (I’m pretty sure.  There usually are.)  And if not cocktails, popcorn!

(And if you can’t come, the event will be live streamed on Facebook and Periscope.  But you’ll have to make your own cocktails, I’m afraid.)

Sometimes I feel like this guy.  But sometimes I’m also the guy asking about Bitcoin.

Ten Books @ Zero $$$

All Covers SmallWant to get a free copy of the AI StoryBundle?  Instructions below.

But first, let me remind you that the StoryBundle features 10 novel-length works of science fiction, including:

  • Aristoi by Walter Jon Williams

  • Arachne by Lisa Mason

  • The Bohr Maker by Linda Nagata

  • Queen City Jazz by Kathleen Ann Goonan

  • Rewired – The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology by James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel (which has another story of mine in it).

  • Eye Candy by Ryan Schneider

  • Cyberweb by Lisa Mason

  • Limit of Vision by Linda Nagata

  • Glass Houses by Laura J. Mixon

And you pay what you want, though you have to pay at least $5 to get the first five books on the list.  If you pay $15, you can get all ten.  (That’s $1.50 per book!  Cha-ching!)  Or if you think the authors deserve a little extra, you can pay more!

But you might just win my little contest, in which case you get your ten books for free.  (Just make sure I have your email, so I can send you the codes that will send the ebooks to your device.)

I’m sorry to report that this sale was a flop.  Mostly that was due to BookBub, the largest venue for ebook promotion, deciding (for reasons best known to […]
