May Day

Spring has been snowy here. While it hasn’t stuck, it snowed here all weekend which was good for my writing.

Milk Run is coming together. The origin story – “Exile” – which has done very well in the Starbound anthology – will be coming home in May and I’ll put it at the beginning of Milk Run as the opening chapters. I think part of my problem all along as been it should have been there and I’ve been flailing trying to get it together. The anthology is free for a few days so if you missed it, now’s the time to grab a copy.

In April, I was honored to participate in a panel discussion on indie authors and libraries at the Public Library Association’s annual convention in Denver. It was rather an eye opener for me and I hope I was able to de-bunk some of the myths about self-published books.

I was also honored to be one of three finalists for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Independent Writer of the Year. This is the first time RMFW has offered the award – a companion award to their Writer of the Year award – for the independently published authors in the organization. The membership will vote over the summer and the winner will be announced at the Colorado Gold conference in September (I think). There will be a reception at the Tattered Cover in Denver in August for all the WOTY and IWOTY finalists.

Coming up:
May –
10th – Podium will be releasing their audiobook of Quarter Share. It’s already up for pre-orer.
14th – I’ll be doing a master class on SF/F for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers in Golden.

Before the end of the month I have to get the paperback editions of South Coast and In Ashes Born out. It would be great if I could get this first Smuggler’s Tale out, too.

Should be a busy month.

    I didn’t see a link for the podium pre-order. And I’m struggling to find it on the web. Could you please link to it?

  2. Cha says:

    Nathan — Do you know if WhisperSync will be enabled on Quarter Share? That would be a nice feature, though I intend to listen for this read. (I never did the Podcasts — just wasn’t my medium. But I’ve been using Audible for >20 years.)

  3. Gina says:

    Can Ashes be preordered in paperback?

  4. The Captain says:

    Soon. I’ve got the proofs coming now.

  5. Charlie Russel says:

    The Audible version(by Podium) of Half Share is up and available. The book is WhisperSync enabled and the asking price for the Audible version is a mere $2.99 if you bought the Amazon eBook version. (Do the math, folks. Buy the eBook then buy the Audible book!)

  6. Nelson says:

    Just noticed ‘In Ashes Born’ paperback version on Amazon. Nice!
    But I also noticed something else – instead of “A Seeker’s Tale From The Golden Age of Solar Clipper”, in the ppb cover (well, at least in the jpeg they used) it reads: “A Seeker’s Tale From The Golden Age Solar Cilpper”.
    No “of” and “Cilpper”.
    Hope the error is just in Amazon’s pic.

  7. Nelson says:

    PS: actually, it also missed the “The” (should be “of the Solar Clipper”).

  8. Phil Pankow says:

    Love your books. Is there going to be another one after “In Ashes Born”?

  9. The Captain says:

    Ashes is the first book of the Seeker’s Tales. The follow on titles are listed in the front of the book.

  10. Nelson says:

    Hi, Nathan. Updating: just received the physical book and the actual cover does say “(…) Age Solar Cilpper” instead of “(…) Age of the Solar Clipper”. For reference, it is a “09 August 2016” edition.

    And best regards from Brazil!
