Imprinted is Out Today!

Imprinted Cover ArtAs many of you already know, the next chapter in the Magic ex Libris saga is out today. “Imprinted” is a 15,000-word novelette set after the events of Revisionary. It’s told from the perspective of Jeneta Aboderin, the first person in history to perform libriomancy using e-books.

If you remember Jeneta’s project proposal from Revisionary, you’ll have a good idea where this story starts 🙂

I’d love to do more of this kind of thing. There are plenty more stories to tell in this universe, and other characters I’d like to explore. In part, it will depend on how well this one does. (Yes, that was a hint. No, it was not subtle. “Subtle” has never been one of my strong suits.)

Huge thanks to everyone who signal-boosted this one. It’s available electronically at the following links for $2.99:

A print edition is available via Amazon. I feel bad about charging $5.99 for the print edition, but I can’t really price it cheaper, given the self-publishing options there. And I wanted to at least make the option available.

You might notice there’s no link to Barnes & Noble yet. I’ve noticed this too. I’m not happy about it. All of the files and information are there, but have been stuck in processing limbo. I’ll update as soon as the book escapes.

If you feel $2.99 is a bit much for a 15,000-word story (which is totally reasonable), I’m planning to reduce the price to $1.99 in a month or so. But a lot of people had told me $2.99 was a fair price and they’d be happy to pay it. Since it’s the difference between about $2 in royalties vs. about $0.50 per copy, I figured I’d start at the $2.99 price point.

I like Jeneta’s character a lot, and I love the reveal in this story. I can’t wait to see what you all think of it.

You know you are always welcome at my blog, too. I love these books!

I saw the "friend anniversary" video on FB a couple of days ago, but I didn't jump on it fast enough to share. It had been a tough week.

It's well beyond time for me to treat myself to some new books for summer (which is what we have now down in the southern hemisphere, aka godzone, aka NZ). Libriomancer series, here I come! PS I LOVE your stories. (And, as an aside, I love your feminist positive affirming awesome nice-person entertaining LJ self, which introduced me to the stepsister books and got me hooked on all things JHines.) Now, please excuse me for a mo, I need to spend some money at Kobo.....

Thank you so much! And I really hope you enjoy the Libriomancer books.

I'll try to keep my summer-envy to a minimum as I stare out at the snow and slush...

Well. Huh. Look at that, I bought it anyway because I have no damn willpower and it's payday. Whoops.
