Web update 4 26 17
A couple of quick news items:
-It’s just a few weeks before the release of SHATTERED WARRIOR, the graphic novel I did with Molly Ostertag! It goes on sale May 16, and you can read a bit more about it here. For anyone in the St. Louis area, I’ll be doing a book signing event May 18, at the Spencer Road Branch of the St. Charles library (427 Spencer Road) at 7 pm. Books will be available for sale through Main Street Books. Molly and I have been answering a series of Q&As for bloggers, and next month we’ll be doing a podcast with The Comics Alternative. Not sure when any of these things will actually appear online, but here’s the ink for the podcast page: http://comicsalternative.com.
-Here’s something else I’m really delighted about: A metalsmith named The Ring Lord has made full sets of the blessings from the Elemental Blessings books and they’re very cool! You can buy your own set for $20 at this link:
-And for anyone who doesn’t know, I’ve got a Facebook page at sharonshinnbooks. I draw blessings every Monday morning and post them there. Anyone who’d like a set of blessings but isn’t quite ready for the metal ones can find a template at http://www.sharonshinn.net/troubledwaters/ and print out their own copies on paper or cardstock.
-Many of you probably know that UNQUIET LAND, the fourth book in the Elemental Blessings series, went on sale in November. But you might not know that the publishers have decided not to release paperback versions of that book or the previous one, JEWELED FIRE, since they believe people wanting the lower-cost options will choose e-books. So if you were waiting for the paperbacks, I’m sorry to say they won’t be available! If you don’t like e-books (I myself have only read a few), you might check to see if your library has copies.
-Looking ahead: I’m planning to attend the World Fantasy Convention November 2 through 5 in San Antonio. You can find more information at http://wfc2017.org/wfc2017/. Hope to see some of you there!
