Let's see. I was sick for about a week, which really didn't help much with all the things I needed to get done. I still don't feel great, off and on. The yard is still a swampy mess, but I did get started trying to re-do the edging on the flowerbed to try to keep the garage from flooding and water from undermining that corner of the house.

* I've still been working on the book, doing a revision before I work on the ending. It's about 122,000 words now. It's still going to need another revision before anyone reads it, but it's much less jacked up now than it was before.

* The Between Worlds: the Collected Ile-Rien and Cineth Stories collection (my part of the Six by Six kickstarter) is done and dusted and turned in. The page for it on my web site is here. After the Six by Six is sent out to all the backers, I'll make my collection available to buy as an ebook.

* The next con I'll be at is Comicpalooza in Houston, on May 22-25.

* Emilie and the Hollow World is still $1.99 on US Kindle, Nook, and Kobo

* The Wizard Hunters is supposed to be coming back into print in paperback, but right now there's only one new copy available on Amazon, so I don't know what's going on with that. It is available in ebook and audiobook, and the other two (The Ships of Air and The Gate of Gods) are available in ebook, audiobook, and paperback in the US and Canada. Hoping to get them available in other places at some point too.

It was a pretty good weekend. The signing in Austin went well and we had a lot of fun talking to people, and got to hang out with friends a bit. Also stopped at an Asian market next to where we had lunch and I was able to get some roasted green tea, which I love. (There's a big grocery store-sized Asian market here but it's on the other side of town and I keep forgetting to look for it there.) The weather was pretty terrible, in the 40s and raining during the day, freezing at night.

Sunday was a good work day, I got my word count done, plus did my part of the video for the upcoming kickstarter, plus some other admin type stuff. I'm trying to get the ebooks for City of Bones, The Death of the Necromancer, and Wheel of the Infinite up on iBooks in the next few days. These ebooks plus The Element of Fire are the reprints I did myself and basically pay my utility bill every month, as long as the utility bill is modest, so I've been trying to get them available on more platforms. (They're on kindle, Nook, Kobo, Inktera already.) (All the audiobooks are up on iTunes, just not all the ebooks.)

I'm about 64,000 words into this book I can't talk about yet because it hasn't officially sold, which is probably a little more than halfway through.

The iBooks glitch is fixed and Stories of the Raksura I is finally showing up as available. It looks like they didn't lose the preorders, either. That's a big relief!

It's here: itunes.apple.com/us/artist/martha-wells/id364545521?mt=11. Ignore the two single-novella versions, those aren't supposed to be there and won't do anything. The real one has the actual cover and is listed as Stories of the Raksura Volume I: The Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud

I guess this is release day #2. We're still waiting for release #3, the trade paperback. Which I still hope will be next week.

I did get an early birthday surprise yesterday - my husband had arranged a birthday tea at a nice hotel in Houston with some friends, so that was a pretty awesome surprise. There were fancy little sandwiches and fancy little cakes. (The hotel was extremely nice. It had actual pool cabanas which I had seen on TV but never in real life.) So that was a lot of fun.

This is the second-to-last-day to preorder the ebook (and audiobook, narrated by Christopher Kipiniak) of Stories of the Raksura vol. I, which still looks like it will be out on Tuesday. The trade paperback is delayed a couple of weeks, so you have lots of time to preorder it.

It's available on Amazon Kindle US, Barnes and Noble Nook US, Kobo, iTunes, Kindle Canada, Amazon UK, Kindle Germany, Kindle Spain, Kindle France and all the other Amazons in Mexico, Australia, Brazil, India, Japan, etc. I don't know yet if there will be a DRM-free edition on Baen, I still need to find that out.

Weekend and Emilie

marthawells: (The Serpent Sea)
My laptop had been acting a little odd for a while, and on Friday it became very obvious there was a heat problem with the battery, even while it was in sleep mode. So I had to bite the bullet and buy a new one. I don't use my laptop for anything but writing, using the internet, and working on my web site, but I use it for that pretty much from 7:00 or so in the morning to about 10:00 at night, six to seven days a week, so they don't tend to last as long as they should. I use Macs, mostly because they preform well for what I need to do with them, and in memory of the one that stayed alive just long enough to clone itself to the new laptop before its hard drive failed, and the one that didn't lose any files even when it suddenly extruded a melted battery.

So knock on wood this one does well too.

We also have a pretty big weekend with friends coming into town, and we went to Sherwood Forest Faire on Saturday. It was a great day for it, overcast and cool, starting out below 70 and warming up to nearly 80 in the late afternoon. Then Sunday mid-morning a cold front came in and we went from 70s to 22 with freezing rain and ice pellets. That's what it's doing now. I want my old climate back. None of my native plants are native anymore, everything's dead. So that's depressing.



Emilie and the Sky World is coming out tomorrow in paperback and ebook, and you can find the first chapter here.

When Emilie and Daniel arrive in Silk Harbor, Professor Abindon, an old colleague of the Marlendes, warns them that she's observed something strange and potentially deadly in the sky, a disruption in an upper air aether current. But as the Marlendes investigate further, they realize it's a ship from another aetheric plane. It may be just a friendly explorer, or something far more sinister, but they will have to take an airship into the dangerous air currents to find out. Emilie joins the expedition and finds herself deep in personal entanglements, with an angry uncle, an interfering brother, and an estranged mother to worry about as well as a lost family of explorers, the strange landscapes of the upper air, and the deadly menace that inhabits the sky world.

Question Answer

marthawells: (John Green Trees)
In the Year End Wrap-Up and Questions post, [personal profile] petercline asked: What was your most difficult book to write from a creative standpoint?

The first one that leaps to mind is The Death of the Necromancer. It was tricky in several different ways.

It was set in the same world as The Element of Fire but in a later period, so I had to show the same city but how it would have naturally changed after generations of construction, demolition, and growth. It's more cosmopolitan, it's grown well out past the city walls, rich areas have become rundown, rundown areas are being turned into rich areas. The mystery plot was a bit tricky, with the characters having to find out not only what was happening now but how it had been affected by the past. (Though the scene at the beginning where they find the hole in the cellars and realize that someone has opened a crypt that was buried under a demolished great house is one of my favorite bits.)

Nicholas was also a very difficult main character to write. He's basically the person who would have turned out to be the world's Moriarty, probably doomed to kill or be killed by Inspector Ronsarde, except for his foster father's intervention. He's not really a sociopath, but his natural inclinations are in that direction, and writing his reactions to things didn't come natural to me. Whenever I got stuck on the book, it was usually because I'd written Nicholas as having an emotion or something that didn't work for his character. The example I use is the scene where they drive the coach into the square where his foster father was executed years ago. At first I had him not looking at the scaffold, and the whole book just stalled there. Finally I realized that he would have come to the square over and over again right after it happened, until he could look at that scaffold and not show or feel anything at all.

I didn't have that problem with Madeline or Madele or Isham or Crack or any of the other characters. Reynard was probably the most fun to write. (Even though I had the problem with the copyeditor who tried to take him out probably because he was gay.)

I wrote The Death of the Necromancer because it was the kind of book I really wanted to read, and couldn't find anywhere. The books I found that were sort of in that vein were just really unsatisfying. Writing it, I figured out that was probably the case because it was a hard book to write. But it was worth it.

(You can find the first chapter and other info on my web site here.)

Oh, and I'm still taking questions if anybody has any others.

I signed the first two copies of Emilie and the Hollow World today, for my husband's supervisor's daughters, India and Tysyn. So it was neat for the first signed copies of my YA to do to YA-age people.

Neat news:

* Liz Bourke in her Sleeps with Monsters column on Tor.com said very nice things about The Element of Fire.

* The Other Half of the Sky anthology (I have a Raksura story in it) got a great Library Journal review: Fearless writing and a broad selection of topics makes this a good choice for fans of woman-centered SF and excellent storytelling. The official release date is April 23 and that's when the ebook version will be available.

Emilie and the Hollow World, my YA fantasy, is out today in paperback and ebook.

This is the third book I finished back in 2009, during my career crash that lasted from around 2006-2007 to 2010. A career crash for a writer is kind of like if you had a job where you've been going in to work every day and everything seems fine. But then gradually, over time, you realize you've been fired, and they don't want you there and they aren't going to pay you and everyone you work with knows this. It's just that no one has told you.

The only solution to a career crash is to keep writing no matter how depressed and broke you are, so during 2007-2008 I wrote The Cloud Roads. While it was making its two year round being rejected by all the publishers in the world, I wrote the sequel The Serpent Sea and then tried a completely different direction with Emilie and the Hollow World. So it really means a lot to finally see this last book from that period published, and thanks very much to Strange Chemistry/Angry Robot for taking a chance on me.



Description:

While running away from home for reasons that are eminently defensible, Emilie's plans to stow away on the steamship Merry Bell and reach her cousin in the big city go awry, landing her on the wrong ship and at the beginning of a fantastic adventure. Taken under the protection of Lady Marlende, Emilie learns that the crew hopes to use the aether currents and an experimental engine, and with the assistance of Lord Engal, journey to the interior of the planet in search of Marlende's missing father. With the ship damaged on arrival, they attempt to traverse the strange lands on their quest. But when evidence points to sabotage and they encounter the treacherous Lord Ivers, along with the strange races of the sea-lands, Emilie has to make some challenging decisions and take daring action if they are ever to reach the surface world again.

Blurbs:

"A rollicking adventure yarn with plenty of heart - Emilie & the Hollow World shouldn't be missed."
-USA Today bestselling author Ann Aguirre

Emilie is the best kind of adventurer -- curious, courageous, stubborn, resourceful, and quick to make friends. I can't wait to see where she goes exploring next.
-Sharon Shinn

Martha Wells' Emilie and the Hollow World is a lovely little adventure story that brings a modern sensibility to a classic pulp trope, re-enlivening and re-envisioning it for a contemporary audience. The hollow world, the accidental stowaway, steamships, airships, the gentleman or gentlewoman adventurer--these are elements that would be at home in a story told in the thirties. The clever and competent young heroine on the other hand--well that's another story entirely, and one that Martha Wells handles beautifully. Unlike those thirties pulps, this a book you wouldn't be embarrassed to give a thirteen year old soccer player who can't see any reason she won't grow up to be a physicist and the next president of the United States. Deft writing and consummate storytelling make a classic story fresh again for a new audience. All in all, Emilie and the Hollow World is a ripping yarn for a modern audience.
-Kelly McCullough, author of the WebMage and Fallen Blade series as well as the forthcoming YA School For Sidekicks: The Totally Secret Origin of Foxman Jr.

The first chapter is online here, and it's available at:

I had kind of an active morning, and need to get to work, so quickly:

* It looks like the Star Wars novel may have been moved up to October 15, which is good because then it will be out by Star Wars Reads day.

* If you missed it yesterday, The Cloud Roads seems to be available in trade paperback again, and people who ordered it over the past four months or so are getting their copies, which is a huge relief for me. I just don't think it happened in time to help The Siren Depths.

* The Death of the Necromancer is available in ebook (DRM-Free) at Barnes and Noble NookBook, Kobo, Amazon US Kindle, Amazon UK Kindle, Barnes and Noble UK, Kindle Canada, Kindle Germany, Kindle France, Kindle Spain, Kindle Italy.

Purchase of it or of the also DRM-free ebooks of The Element of Fire, City of Bones or Wheel of the Infinite helps pay for the plumbing disaster repairs to my house.

The plumbers finished, and we're just waiting on the contractor to schedule us to start putting the walls and ceiling together again. I spent most of the afternoon cleaning up dust that didn't get picked up by the dust sheets or the shop vac, but there's a lot more to go. (The electric saw and the drill they had to use created a lot of dust.) Insurance is thankfully going to cover a lot of it, but we still have to pay around $3000, so if you know anybody who might be interested in cheap ($2.99 US) DRM-free reprint ebooks of The Element of Fire, The Death of the Necromancer, City of Bones, Wheel of the Infinite on Kindle, Nook, or Kobo. (It does help to buy and rec the other books too, but with the reprints I get paid monthly by the retailers. With the others, if the book has earned out, it might be six months to a year before I get paid.)

Book Rec:

I loved these fantasy regency MG novels by Stephanie Burgis. The second one Renegade Magic is now out in paperback. I thought they were just as readable and fun for adults as for kids.

Two things!

First, which I just found out myself, The audiobook of The Siren Depths is now available on Audible.com, narrated by Christopher Kipiniak. It's just gone up on Audible, so it should be also available on Amazon and iTunes once the listing has a chance to get updated in their systems.

Second, The Death of the Necromancer is now available in ebook.


Cover designed by Tiger Bright Studios.

The Death of the Necromancer was my third novel. It came out in hardcover in 1998 from Avon Eos and later in paperback. My agent had originally offered it to Tor Books, who had published The Element of Fire and City of Bones, but after looking at the first two hundred pages, my editor at Tor turned it down. It was published by Avon and ended up on the final ballot for the 1998 Nebula Award.

It's a dark fantasy/adventure/mystery, set in the same world as The Element of Fire but a few hundred years later. Like the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy (The Wizard Hunters, The Ships of Air, The Gate of Gods), it's a world that had gaslight and trains and was experimenting with electicity, long before steampunk was popular. I wrote it because it was the kind of book I wanted to read and couldn't find anywhere.

This is the book with Reynard, from the Don't Let Then Take Your Reynards essay. And if you've read the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy, this is the book with Tremaine's parents, Nicholas and Madeline.

It did really well, but Avon Eos was eventually bought by HarperCollins, which let The Death of the Necromaner go out of print around 2002-2003, before The Wizard Hunters came out, even though the books were set in the same universe.

The first chapter is on my web site here.

It's available at Barnes and Noble NookBook, Kobo, Amazon US Kindle, Amazon UK Kindle, Barnes and Noble UK, Kindle Canada, Kindle Germany, Kindle France, Kindle Spain, Kindle Italy, and should be DRM-free.

I'm getting the text of The Death of the Necromancer ready to release as an ebook. Hopefully this will happen sometime in the later part of February, if all goes well. The book originally came out in 1997, and was a nominee for the Nebula award in 1998.

I've had the cover done by Tiger Bright Studios, who did the covers for the ebook re-releases of The Element of Fire, City of Bones, and Wheel of the Infinite:





I'll post the Necromancer cover when it's closer to the release date. The book will also be serialized online free by Black Gate Magazine.

I loved her scene, and thought I'd post one too. This is from The Cloud Roads:

Jade has wanted Moon for a long time by this point in the book, and they've just fought a Fell ruler, and Moon has confessed about his past to her, and he's in a very vulnerable state. Even though the Raksura aren't human, and their reactions and behavior aren't the same as ours, I still felt she would take a moment to make sure Moon knew what he was doing:

First off, I have a new cover for the ebook edition of City of Bones by Jenn of Tiger Bright Studios:



I love it! City of Bones was my second novel (from Tor Books, in 1995) and the first one where it actually had a good cover, a neat desert city landscape by artist Richard Bober. (The original is here) For the reprint ebook cover, we basically decided to do something different, and I really love how it turned out.

I've uploaded it to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo, but who knows how long it will take for them to update. It's available at all those sites and the outside-the-US Amazons for $2.99, and it's supposed to be DRM-free, but that's also dependent on those sites actually acknowledging me telling them the book is supposed to be DRM-free. First chapter sample, links, etc are at my web site.

Book Signing Day

Saturday, December 8th, 2012 07:48 am
marthawells: (Zoe)
Went out last night to local Mexican restaurant and had one small on-the-rocks margarita, was immediately tipsy and then fell asleep. The excitement!

eBooks: Finally, Barnes and Noble has the Nookbook of The Siren Depths available.

Book Signing Day: I'm doing a signing at Murder by the Book in Houston today from 3:00 - 4:00 pm for their local authors day. A lot of authors will be signing throughout the day, and if you're out of town, you can use that link to order books and get them personally signed, and the store will ship them to you.

Womanly Pursuits: Someone on Twitter pointed out this comment to me, on a Jezebel article about women authors using male pseudonyms:
One of my favourite fantasy writers is Martha Wells. She just puts so many incredibly clever spins on familiar tropes, and really has a knack for snappy dialogue and animated characters. I was chatting with one of my husband's new employees a while back who is also a big reader, and when I recommended Death of a Necromancer, he was like, "Oh, I heard of it, but it's a woman's book, right?" After some pressing and some backpedaling on his part, he said he tended to assume books written BY women were always FOR women and thus about things women were interested, though he couldn't really clarify as to what "things" we were supposed to be interested in. He also didn't really have an answer when I asked him if books written by men were then always FOR men.

One of many things women are interested in = serial murder for necromantic purposes.

Review: There was a nice review of The Other Half of the Sky, the anthology I have a story in, which is coming out in a few months. Mimesis is an adventure story about Jade from the Books of the Raksura.

Jack the cat Update: Jack has a bad habit of trying to attack your hand when it's on the bannister as you're walking downstairs. This feels like tiny warm hands grabbing your hand from behind. Basically I'm glad I know the house is not haunted. Also, we were watching TV after dinner on Tuesday night and he jumped up on the table and dunked his stuffed mouse in my ice tea glass.

Stupid human trick update: On Wednesday night, I was trying to cook even though I didn't feel that great, and managed to knock a spoon up and get boiling hot gravy on my hands. It didn't do any damage, just hurt enough to piss me off. So last night we had Panera for dinner.

Question: I did a Big Idea Post on Whatever on The Siren Depths and I got this question from @PrinceJvstin and wanted to go ahead and answer it here:

Got a question. Given the events in the third book, and how it ties into Moon’s origins, without spoilers, how much of the "revelations" did you have in mind when you started the Cloud Roads?

I hadn't fleshed out everything, but I knew what had happened to Moon's original court. I don't think I had worked out all the details of what happened when Sorrow left, but I knew she hadn't stolen Moon and the others kids, like Stone had suggested as a possibility at one point. I think that's about as far as I can go without spoilers.

Signing: I'm doing a signing at Murder by the Book in Houston tomorrow (Saturday) from 3:00 - 4:00 pm for their local authors day. A lot of authors will be signing throughout the day, and if you're out of town, you can use that link to order books and get them personally signed, and the store will ship them to you.

eBooks for The Siren Depths: EBooks are starting to gradually appear on Kindle and most recently on iTunes. Nookbooks are available at Barnes and Noble's UK site, but not on their US site for some reason. Some irritating, glacially slow reason. The ebook is the cheapest, and DRM-free, at the Baen Webscription eBook Store.
