I had to finish the last 2 books of the Sage of Shadowdale trilogy before I could start Children of the Sun and Moon. I couldn't even put it down to go to bed at a sane time last night. I can't wait for Legacy of Moon and Fire!

Stryker, thanks so much! Always good to hear people enjoy your work.

If you have the time, I encourage you to post a review at Amazon (or wherever you favor) for any book you really like. Word of mouth is very important for authors, especially new ones.

Are you going to get a limited print run of this or anything, Phoenix? I'd be really interested in picking it up, but I don't have an e-reader and I really just can't read long things sitting at my computer.

Thanks CBGers! You guys are great.

Are you going to get a limited print run of this or anything, Phoenix? I'd be really interested in picking it up, but I don't have an e-reader and I really just can't read long things sitting at my computer.

I'm in the process of getting Print-On-Demand available, but it may be a while before that's up. When it is, you'll be able to order a paperback copy through Amazon. Will cost more than the ebook, though, of course.

Funny you should mention this now, since the upcoming PoD was one of things I announced on a Facebook event yesterday. The event is basically trying to encourage anybody that's interested to grab a copy on Monday. Because of how Amazon's algorithms work, a bunch buys on a single day can actually boost rankings more than the same number of buys spread out. Higher rankings means higher listings, so other people can see and stumble over whatever the item in question is. At least it's worked for a few writer friends of mine.

So if anyone's been thinking about snagging the ebook version, Monday would be a great time for it.

CoSaM just receive a glowing review over at Pure Textuality (cross-posted on Amazon and Goodreads).

Excerpt

This book unceremoniously ripped my heart of my chest, took a bit out of it, stomped on it, ran it through a blender, set it on fire, and then spit on the ashes… and I loved every second of it.

 ...
 

Now, where do I begin with a review of “Children of Sun and Moon?”  Well, let me give you some facts.  On March 1st Jena sent out an e-mail asking for reviewers.  I read the blurb and replied “I’m in.”  On March 3rd she sent me the file.  On March 19th I started reading.  It took me 16 days to open the file.  Once the file was opened, it took me less than 12 hours to read the entire thing.  By 4% (the first time you see a Macan Gadungan in action, in case you were wondering) I was hopelessly hooked.

Another nice review

It made me smile.

excerpt

Maybe storyteller isn’t descriptive enough.  Maybe I should say that Larkin is a storyweaver.  His universe is chaos and brilliance and honor and destruction and love in once amazing place.  I was completely captivated by the world that he crafted with the Solars and Lunars and cannot wait for the next book!!

Yeah, when I finally get the paperback out, that's probably going on the back  yum
