    Oh, oh, oh, oh! Can I tempt you to come to Canada! I’ll take you whale watching and show you those dolphins that Ish is connected to. My favourite dolphin is the world’s largest dolphin, orcinus orca, otherwise known as “orca”, “killer whale”. Every summer since 2003, we’ve journeyed to visit the Northern Resident orca population. This year is planned for Aug. 23 – 30. I know it might not fit into your schedule but you can go most anytime between late June and late Sept. and most be guaranteed of seeing them. And everytime you mention whelkies in your stories, I always think of the pebbles that line special beaches that the orcas use to rub against. They are smooth and satiny and evoke a feeling of connectedness to the world when you touch them.

    Yea .. I’m missing Canada. I haven’t been north of the border for a couple of years. Back before I needed a passport. Got the passport, but haven’t managed a northward trip for too long. Someday, before too long, I hope.

  3. ojak says:

    How a about coming over to the UK? Now you have a passport there is nothing stopping you. We can show you the sights and a pub or 2, all you now is to get here and bring ‘Double Share’. :-)

  4. Please let me know if you’re ever going to be around the Bay Area in California. I would love to meet you.

  5. Steve Green says:

    Thats a ditto. Come up to the North Bay and visit Sebastopol, CA. My wife and I will put you up and feed you as well. Love your tales. I have just started Double Share and when finished with that I’ll start South Gate. Thank you for your talent and sharing it with the rest of the world. Can’t wait to meet you.

  6. Ken says:

    I’m interested in knowing how those of us in Los Angeles can meet you while your in L.A.

  7. George Morris says:

    L O V E Your books, I drive a truck and they have been a big help to pass the miles. I only wish you would of done something with the academy. I am going to try and get my wife, daughter and sister in law to listen.

  8. George Morris says:

    Sorry should of listened to #4 first before I sent last comment. Sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Nate says:

    No worries, George. It’s the nature of the beast.

    Ken, I usually get to LA about once a year, but the convention I attend there has moved its home city to San Diego for next year, but I’ll certainly let people know when I’m traveling.

    Kirk and Steve, I get to SF so rarely, I can’t predict when I might be traveling there again.

    Ojak, the UK is on my List Of Places to Get To. I have no idea when/how that might happen but there’s several people and places I want to see and if I ever head across the pond, know that I’ll make much of it here.

    Meantime, I’m at BaltiCon at Hunt’s Vally, MD and starting Saturday with a writing workshop run by Mur Lafferty. This should be a blast.

  10. JP says:

    When and if you make it to Canada, continue on then and visit ojak in the UK. Then continue on to Germany. You have a place to hang your hat for a visit.

    I wanted to get print versions of your books for Christmas to use as presents. I know many of my family and friends who would love your books as much as I do. I can’t locate print versions, sad. I was hoping for a Lulu or some other press version. Maybe a disc set. Hate to take the download with out paying the Author. Tip jar? I will have to look at Podiobooks to see about paying. Thanks If you do have a print copy please let me know where to find it. Lucy

  12. Nate says:

    Text versions are not currently available.

    I expect to have them available soon, but maybe not in time for Christmas.

    There *is* a donate button on Podiobooks.com – on the title page for each book.

    And thank you. Yours isn’t the first request for text and i’m re-thinking my text strategy even as I’m writing the next book.

  13. annoyance says:

    any chance Dragoncon this year? You should have a book to sell there.

  14. Nate says:

    A chance but a very small one.

  15. annoyance says:

    If you need transportation while in ATL, I can lend you my car. It’s not fancy but it will get you around.

  16. Sue Bockmann says:

    I very much enjoyed “Ravenwood” when I listened using iTunes. However, when I got to the final episode, the narration just stopped before the story had completely ended. It was truncated. I don’t think much was missing, but there was definitely something missing. I wondered if the advertisement placed at the the beginning of the recording for “Young Junius” had anything to do with this. I thought you might like to know. I hope you can fix this. Thank you for your excellent writing.

  17. Nate says:

    Let me look, but i think the whole file is there.

  18. Nate says:

    I just checked the source, The file is correct and complete.

    I think the problem is that if you’re playing it IN the iTunes music store without downloading it first, they truncate playback at 45 minutes and that one episode (out of the whole book) is about 47 minutes long.

    Subscribe to the book — it’s free. And just download the last episode.

    OR

    Go to the Ravenwood page at Podiobooks and scroll to the bottom of the page. All the episodes are listed there and you should be able to grab the link to the episode 16 mp3 file.

    Hello
    I see only Quarter Share available on ebook. I’m about done, and looking forward to the rest. Will the rest be available here as well? I’m not so much a fan of listening to books.
    Thanks!

  20. Nate says:

    Yup. Half Share will be available in October and Full the following April.

    There’s a post giving the production schedule :)

  21. Candice says:

    I am re-listening to the “share” books now and I am even more impressed each time I go through them. I hope to make it to Mile High Con to meet you in person!! Thank you so much for all you do.

  22. Isaiah Owen says:

    I am halfway through Quarter share. I would like to buy Half share. How can I get a hold of a published copy? I am not really in to audio books. It is a great story. I must have more.

    Isaiah

  23. Nate says:

    As soon as I get done with the editing, it’ll be available on Amazon just like the last one was :)

    Hang in there! it’s a matter of a couple of weeks now :)

  24. Craig says:

    LOVED Quarter Share! I read on Kindle almost exclusively now. Will you be releasing the Kindle version at the same time as the printed copy?

    Love your work, keep it coming Nate! Oh, and I’d love to share a link to your site on facebook. Do you have a landing page / facebook share button for the series ?

    Kind Regards,
    Craig

  25. Nate says:

    The books are released in all formats at once — paper, Kindle, Nook, etc.

    I don’t have a page for the series … but I should. Let me work on that.

  26. James says:

    Balitcon? That would be great… I understand it if you can’t make it. Maybe a pilgrimage is in order… Any more updates to the list?

  27. Jeff says:

    Hi Nate,
    I’m really enjoying owner’s share. I am listening to them as fast as they are dropped to the feed. Kinda sad this is the last book in the series (unless there are plans I’m not aware of!).
    One comment about Ishmael’s cargo picking. I know going transporting high priority cargo is preferable. However, once he has gotten all the high priorities he can, why isn’t he stuffing the rest of his hold with regular cargo? It may not make much, but I bet it is more than empty hold space.

    Keep up the good work!

    Regards,
    Jeff

    I love your 2 Solar Clipper books (bought them for my Kindle). I will be buying the others as soon as they come out.
    I am currently listening to your pod cast, Full Share.
    I have to make a comment (Nit-picking, but almost always gotten wrong in press and stories).
    I was stationed on a nuclear submarine for 5 years, and now work in the nuclear industry.
    I believe in chapter 8, Ish comments that he hopes the reactor doesn’t go critical. Actually critical is a good thing in a power reactor, that is when the reactor is producing power.
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/criticality
    http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/basic-ref/glossary/criticality.html
    “Prompt Critical” is really BAD. Super-critical or Sub-critical is just power going up or down.

    Everything else reminds me of my time in the navy, the terms/talk/watchstanding have a “real” feel.

  29. Nate says:

    @kevin – yeah I realized later that I blew that one. And it should feel pretty real otherwise. I floated in the North Atlantic for a year myself in the early 70s. Not on a nuke, obviously :)

  30. Ken Harris says:

    We have two Literary science fiction conventions in Dallas .ConDFW XI will be held the weekend of February 17-19, 2012. FenCon VIII / DeepSouthCon 49 – September 23-25, 2011 – Dallas, Texas. You would be welcome at either one or both. :)

    I’ll even pick you up at airport. :)
