Riptide is three weeks from hitting store shelves. Several book reviewers already have advance copies, so here’s hoping they’re enjoying the ride. Anyway, I wanted to mention a few things related to the book.
First, remember that my short story, A Fair Trade, will appear in October’s Star Wars Insider(issue #129, I believe). The story features Khedryn and Marr before they meet Jaden, and thus before the events of Crosscurrent. I think you will dig.
Second, on the subject of Riptide generally: I did some things with the story that I regard as unusual/risky (YMMV, of course). I think it all works out quite well, but I’m very curious to see reader response.
Third, as always with a new release, I’ll be doing an esigning. If you’d like a signed copy of Riptide and you live in the U.S., just Paypal me $11 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll sign it however you want and ship it off to a U.S. address you designate. The whole process is very easy. If you live overseas, I can ship it there, too, but the price will be $6 for the book plus the shipping cost to your exotic locale. Just email me first to inquire (include your address) and we’ll figure it out.
