My Series on Audiobooks

Very jazzed to report that the four books of The Entire and The Rose will soon be available for digital download from Audible. They may also offer CDs and audio cassettes. Audible is eager to get Bright of the Sky and A World Too Near out there, so I presume no long delays. Books three and four will be available at simultaneous with the hardcover publication, which, in the case of City Without End, will be February, 2009.

I’ll announce here when they’re up on

More of Near

Pyr has the the opening of A World Too Near up on their website (pages that can be downloaded as a pdf file), with a cool banner treatment. Nice job, Lou! This is about 40 pages more than I’m offering on my website. Warning: Ya know this is a series of four, right? A World Too Near is Book Two, and therein lie big spoilers. Here are the first 60 pages. Book One, of course, is Bright of the Sky.

City Without End Wins Silver Spectrum Award

Here is the “freaking gorgeous” cover artwork (as one reader put it) for City Without End, next year’s third book in my series, The Entire and The Rose. For this cover, Stephan Martiniere has just won the Silver Spectrum award, novel category. This cover may surpass the covers he’s already done for The Entire and The Rose–and that’s after I thought he’d already created the ultimate knock-out covers for Bright of the Sky and A World Too Near! (To see these covers, click here.)

I am enormously grateful to Stephan Martiniere for so gloriously capturing the world of the Entire, and lavishing his amazing talent on my stories.

Since I don’t seem to be able quite yet to negotiate LJ renditions of these kinds of files, I urge you to take a look at this cover on Pyr’s blog.
