I wasn't sure about trying a new LJ-type journaling site, but everything I've seen here shows just how amazing the people running this place are. Even InsaneJournal, as good as it is, hasn't impressed me the way this place has, and i've been using IJ long enough to consider myself a regular there. This is the first journaling site i've used that impresses me enough to be willing to scrape together the money needed to pay for a "pro" subscription. Congratulations, Dreamwidth. You've made something truly amazing.

Rather than re-post what I've posted elsewhere, I'll just add a link here. It's not fun, it's not a fictional story, and if you come from an abusive family, it could trigger you, so if you choose to read it, do whatever you need to keep yourself safe while doing so, OK?

Thanks, Mom! Thanks, Dad!

Yes, that's right. I've finally strapped on my patented Shinji Ikari portaspine, stopped compulsively editing and re-editing, and handed Knights in Tarnished Armor off to a publisher. It's now available as an ebook, in Kindle, Epub, LRF, PDB, HTML, PDF, RTF, and Text formats, for $4.95 a copy (or, if you use Coupon Code SX84W when you check out, you can get your copy for free, until May 7, 2010). For people who prefer a recycled tree edition, you can get it as a 6"x9" paperback for $15.55.

Now, before I lose my nerve, I need to make sure First Contact is clean, set it up for publishing, and then package all the various short stories I've written into an anthology (still working on a title for that) that will get the same treatment.

If anyone can recommend a good, high-quality FLOSS TTS program that I can use to produce an audio version of the book, I'd be grateful enough to send them a free copy of what comes out when I process it through the program.

If quality TTS just isn't available in FLOSS, I may just have to bite the bullet and burn out my vocal cords. If that's the case, so be it, but I really do want an audio version of the book available for my friends who are blind or otherwise need a copy they can listen to.

Unpayable Silence by Mittnatsol, just happened to be up on my Last.fm rotation when I was writing this chapter, so it made it into the story.
You can find every article of clothing in the box, at Pegasus Publishing. I've been shopping there for years. It's the definitive geek's clothing store.

It's been a long time, I know, but it's that time of year, when a young wolf's fancy turns to thoughts of cute bitches, and a cranky old paladin can even be convinced to break into song....

That's right, it's the First of May.
