Get it cheap, maybe get it free

Hey folks — over here at they’re tossing twenty free copies of Boneshaker to twenty random commenters. You have until noon on Wednesday, October 14th, to go to that-there post, leave a comment, and thereby enter yourself in the drawing.

Or if you don’t like those odds (last time I looked there were some 250 entrants), you can order it directly from the store at 30% off. Of course, you can also still get it from and … if you’ve already had a chance to read it, I’d be forever grateful if you’d leave an Amazon review.

I realize that this blog has become the Boneshaker Channel as of late, and I apologize — but basically, it’s been the center of my life for the last couple of weeks. Between that, and the guest-blogging, and the interviews, and the promotions, and the Kindle edition taking its own sweet time, and the question-answering, and the email-responding, and the out-of-town visitors, and the signings, and the preparations for a convention plus three more events in the next six weeks … well, frankly I haven’t had much else to talk about.

But speaking of such things, this morning I spent a while on the phone with the incomparable Jon Armstrong, nattering about steampunk, costumes, Seattle history, pioneer flub-ups, and urban planning for his wonderful podcast If You’re Just Joining Us. I’ll let you know when it goes live.

Following this interview, I went out to the University Book Store at UW and signed the books you kind folks have ordered through that fine store in accordance with these guidelines.

Gosh. There must be something else I can put here that makes it sound just a little bit less like my head is up my butt. Hmm. Well, let’s see.

Today was a most excellent mail day. I received a new corset (YES, ANOTHER ONE but it was on sale, okay? And I ordered it a long time ago; there was a mix-up); a couple sets of arm-warmers and a pair of menswear-style sock garters from Sock Dreams; and some Surprise! money via my marvelous agent. So. Yanno. Three cheers for that.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now. I hope everyone has an excellent weekend, and I’ll catch up to you on Monday (if not sooner).

  1. Just began reading ‘Boneshaker’ today! So far, so excellent. I tried ordering it from the library first, but even in my small county I was still 3rd on the waiting list. Which means that my region must have more Steampunk enthusiasts than I originally thought. Especially as there are 5 copies in the system.

  2. Wow, thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it :)
    And for what it’s worth, someone told me they were 22nd in the library line to read it … so it could be worse …

  3. Recently found you. Looking forward to reading Boneshaker. By the way, a girl can never have too many corsets.

  4. Cherie,
    Wow. Yes, I guess I am lucky in that respect! Really, it is a pretty small and and not very populous county I live in.
    Though I heard today that there are 3 sequels?! I’d better hurry up and get a handle on Boneshaker either way, lest I get left behind!
